Prince TeXtreme Phantom 100P
Introducing the second generation of the Phantom 100P. Like the original version, this racquet combines spin-friendly targeting with a wonderfully solid feel at impact. It also accelerates with surprising ease for a racquet with a near 330 RDC-swingweight. Boasting a thin box beam and flexible 59RA, the 100P not only has buttery feedback but it is also more arm-friendly than the majority of racquet’s in its class.
For this update Prince adds an Anti-Torsion System which places Textreme and Twaron in the upper hoop and shaft. The payoff is a more solid and responsive feel higher in the stringbed where many advanced players make contact. This stick also packs a variable CTS Beam, which goes from 16.5mm in the shaft to 20.5mm at the tip.
On groundstrokes the 100P does a great job when redirecting the pace of a bigger hitter. Like the previous generation, it rewards full swings with an impressive combination of power and precision. The open 16×18 string pattern not only supplies enough bite to bring the ball down hard with spin, it also gives you a robust launch angle, making it easier to keep the ball deep. Experienced volleyers will love the combination of stability and touch. This racquet also shines on serve where you’ll have enough precision to swing for power, and enough spin to hit juicy kickers and nasty slices.
With incremental tweaks to the feel, the 100P keeps getting better. Intermediate and advanced players looking for a great feeling racquet with exceptional precision should add this to their demo list.
