The best selling Shark improved with O³ technology for a higher sweet spot and greater stability. This racquet has a rock solid feel with deadly power. The O³ Hybrid Shark has the same frame geometry and cross section as the best selling Shark racquet with the Cushion Grip System for more comfort and less shock. Although it is an update to a best-selling racquet, the O³ Hybrid Shark has quickly become a legendary frame in its own right.
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.
