A racket brand that’s well represented on both the ATP and WTA tours, and well known for consistency of quality across its racket ranges.

Prince models are always eye-catching, and one of the standout elements of the feedback was the Tour 100T’s attractive design.

The other was its power, which particularly rocked Howard and Sarah’s worlds. “I thought the power was perfect – easy to generate,” said Howard. “And this frame had great control too. It’s real quality.”

Our man went on to explain that he felt it helped in three key areas of his game – his forehand, serve and volleys too. “Prince make great rackets. I like this a lot. It’s a good all-round racket.”

Sarah’s only criticism was that it felt a little rigid when she was hitting her one-handed backhands.
