The latest update to the Prince Original Graphite family, the 100 Long Body offers a new 28 inch long option in a player oriented frame. This new Prince Classic Graphite 100 LB continues to be a very traditional player's racquet, made famous on tour by Juan Carlos Ferrero. Provides the most controlled feel in Prince's line and is geared toward an advanced player with a fast to very fast swing. Great racquet for advanced ball-strikers who prefer the added reach of an extended frame. The thin 19mm beam enhances the flexible, feel-oriented nature of this Prince classic. Cross bar stabilizer helps to stabilize the thin (by today's standards) beam. Surprisingly maneuverable for an added length racquet.
I played tennis in college in the 80s, but did not play for about 20 years. Recently came back to the sport and needed a racquet. Demoed over 40, but when I finally hit this racquet it was like time stood still. Nothing compares in terms of feel and ability to control the ball with my admittedly longer, faster strokes. Every other racquet feels like a trampoline.
5 StarsGreat update

I just had my first chance to play with this racquet (strung PrinceTourXC, 16L, 58lbs) after playing many years with the Prince Diablo XP Oversize. Certainly a nice difference in the softness with its thinner beam. Great control and lots of power on my serve. Love this 28inch!!!
