I've played with the same racquet for many years, so this was my first new racquet in 20 years. It is awesome! With this racquet, I hit my groundstrokes deeper in the court and my serves are much faster. It's about .5 oz lighter than my old racquet, so I do have to get used to it, but so far it's great!
I love this racket. I'm an old school Prince racket lover (use to play with a Spectrum when I was younger) and the warrior gives me the same kind of feeling but with more power. It is pretty light but once you get use to it, it handles very well. Even if this is an older model, I just bought 2 more so I can have 3 on hand before they don't have it anymore. At $89 dollar now instead of $189, it is more than worth it.
Absolutely love this racquet. I have it strung with a syn gut @ 58 lbs. I'm a younger male player, this stick seems to provide enough pace without being obnoxious on power. The spin on balls is great. It took me a while to get dialed in on control with it, but it seems to perform very good swinging through the ball. Ultimately though, there are better sticks available if you are looking for more control. I personally wasn't a big fan of the feel of the original O ports but the EXO3 ports seem to be more conventional feeling if you will. I fell in love with this racquet after a couple months of buying my first one last year and recently bought my second from Midwest. Even though I didn't request it, they gave it a complementary stenciling with the stringing which looks great. Also, this racquet from Midwest seems to have a matte finish in case anyone cares, my original exo3 warrior 100 has a glossy finish. Overall, a very good racquet, at this price point I wouldn't hesitate to snatch one up before they're
This racquet comes with a good combination of Power, Comfort and Control, I would say in that order. If you have used a player racquet before you might find this racquet has more power than control. It is very comfortable as well may be at the cost of feel. .
I?m used to a heavier frame and it took me a while to get used to the exo3 warrior. But once I got my timing down, I was crushing winners. Incredible maneuverability and a sweetspot almost as large as the head itself. Great intermediate to advanced players frame.
