Prince has announced EXO3 its 2009 high performance racquet line. EXO3 features a patented Energy BridgeTM which suspends the string bed, expands the sweet spot (83%bigger than usual) and delivers a 26% increase in spin(ability), a 50% reduction in frame vibration and 25% more control. These are not a cosmetic upgrade from last year's O series.

The hot looking line-up includes four models and six frames: EXO3 Silver 118, EXO3 Red 105,  EXO3 Graphite 100, EXO3 Graphite 93, EXO3 Rebel 95 and EXO3 Rebel Team 95.

Two of the line come with calfskin leather grips for a little new school meets old school attitude, a nice touch.

The racquets range in price from $180 USD for the Rebel Team 95 to $300 for the Silver 118. Check out the new site Prince has set up dedicated to the EXO3 line. You'll find everything you need to know about the line there — in particular, how to match one of these racquets with your game.

Find a retailer at PrinceTennis or demo and shop at Tennis-Warehouse. The racquets begin hitting US stores January 15.
