O³ Hybrid Technology: The O³ Hybrid series features O-Ports at 6&12 o'clock (as opposed to the original O³ series, which features O-Ports around the entire perimeter of the frame), providing an increased sweet spot and more stability for increased performance. By replacing the traditional pin-sized string holes with giant O-Ports, a super aerodynamic frame has been created with a more responsive stringbed. This increases the sweet spot by 54%, creating a Sweet Zone, which means you hit your best shots more often. What's truly impressive is that Prince did it all without enlarging the racquet head, increasing it's length, or adding weight. So it's easy to maneuver and quicker through the air.

The new O³ engineered racquets are created through a one step fusion process that utilizes the strongest structure known to mman, the Arch, creating the frame's O-Ports. These O-Ports stabilize the racquet and provide total string freedom for a livelier response across the entire string bed. This eliminates the dead zone that traditional string holes create, giving players more consistency, greater stability and more confidence to hit their best shots more often. In addition, the O-Ports aerodynamic design provides a faster swing speed, enabling players to reach more balls and win more points, more often.

      Comments about Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet Over:

      I play doubles every Saturday morning for 3.5 hours. This Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet feels great and has resulted in an overall improvement in every aspect of the game from serve, volleys, and ground strokes. It gives me confidence to really 'go for it' with my forehand. The people I play with have commented on how much my game has improved recently. I have to give most of the credit to the equipment. It's just right for me.

            Comments about Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet Over:

            I am a recreational player, teach private lessons and volunteer with my local high school team. I have been using PRINCE racquets almost exclusively for almost 35 years. The O3 Hybrid Hornet OS is the best racquet that I have ever used.I can really think of no negatives. Fantastic racquet at a great price! I happen to own two.

            • Q:

              What are the differences between this and the O3 hybrid shark?

                A:

                The difference between the two racquets are the specs. The Shark is 27.5 inches long and 10.41 ounces compared to 27 inches and 9.98 ounces for the Hornet.

            • Q:

              Did this racquet replace the blue Hybrid oversize?

                A:

                This racquet was a direct replacement for the popular Prince Triple Threat Hornet. There were a few blue racquets in the O3 Hybrid family, including the O3 Hybrid Comp, the O3 Hybrid Lite, and the O3 Hybrid Shark. None of them currently have direct replacements, but the O3 Hybrid Shark Oversize is currently still available.

            • About Prince
            Prince tennis racquets have always been revolutionary; in fact, they made the very first oversized racquet. Today, Prince racquets can be found in the hands of pros—like David Ferrer and Gael Monfils—and recreational players alike. Overall, Prince tennis racquets are known for increased ball control and stability and a significant reduction of frame vibration, making them perfect for any player type. But Prince doesn't just make tennis racquets. They also make fine tennis shoes, tennis apparel, grips, strings, squash racquets, and squash eyeguards.
