      I need a light racquet due to some arthritis in my thumb. This is a great choice for anyone who wants power and lightness at the same time. Strong frame for such a lightweight racquet.

      I play three times a week and tried the original grip for a couple weeks. Finally had to replace it with one of Ektelon's clear slip on grips. It is perfect for me now.

      Comments about Ektelon O3 RG (Ruben Gonzalez):

      I really like this racquet, I got my first one years ago and it lasted a very long time. The frame eventually broke but long after I expected it to. I won't play with anything else now I'm so used to this racquet. The problem from ordering from this site is the image of the racquet I ordered is not what I was sent. The image shows the "Power Plugs" at the top, the red and black plastic weights that can be inserted into the frame to add more weight to the head. It also shows the clear gel grip. The racquet I received was the correct racquet but it did not have the plugs or the gel grip. The grip it came with was a black wrap grip, inferior to the gel grip in my opinion.

        Comments about Ektelon O3 RG (Ruben Gonzalez):

        I've been playing racquetball for over 15 years and this is the best racket I have ever used, and I have used a LOT of rackets. This is my second O3 RG I have purchased, the first one I purchased from [@] and the strings on it broke after a few games, I restrung it and it has been good since then. The one from Holabird I have used for several weeks now playing average of 7 hours a week and have had no issues at all with it, factory string is still perfect.
