Prince ATS Textreme Tour Racquets

by TN

There are new Prince ATS Textreme Tour racquets available for pre-sale right now. Let’s have a look at them!

The Prince ATS Textreme Tour racquets are the update to the 2019 Textreme Tours, but there is also a new stick that joins the gang – a 98 sq inch version. For me personally, this is the most exciting racquet of the bunch, but looking at the specs and the design makes me very curios about all of them.

ATS = anti-torque system, supposed to increase stability, despite a generous flexibility of these racquets.

The new Prince ATS Textreme Tour racquets can be bought on pre-sale at Tennis Warehouse, Tennis Warehouse Europe and Tennis Only. At the time of writing, they don’t seem to be available yet in Europe and AUS, but that should be changing soon.

Design

In recent years, Prince have become bolder with their racquet designs. Just look at the Ripstick, the Twistpower and the Vortex as examples. The new ATS TT racquets follow a more daring trend, but doesn’t go all the way of the Ripstick for example. Still, it’s a pretty clear step away from predominantly black design of the previous generation.

What do you think about it?

The 95 looks a dream racquet but like most of us I think the next racquet should be one to help play better now not one I would have used a few years back. The Tour 98 looks on paper a perfect stick for that. I’m intrigued by the beam and the layup. It seem like as J mentioned in the video a 98 speed which is fantastic as I’m still in my head not ok with 100s. The feel of Prince has always been great and if the stability is there (Michelle at TW saying the stability wasn’t missing from her RF97…) then what more is there to want… Could be the one. Haha. Looking forward to the review on here, whilst a pester the dealers here for a demo)

I had two 209 TT100 310, sold one and regret :). With the remaining one I am playing when I cannot play good with PS97, but still a 100 inch head is not really in my taste. I tried Blades, countervail or V8, picked the 18×20 for the higher SW, but that blade is not so friendly with 33cm balance and 324SW. I tried to customize blade to be more HL but that stick is not so heasy to be fooled 🙂 being heavier in the throat. Its characteristic. Bad one. LOL. Sild the blades. Aweful sticks :).
So now Price came with TT98, with SW325 and balnce 32.5 strung and 32 with overgrip. Thats fantastic! Cannot wait to buy one.

Happily surprised to see Prince return to the lower stiffness of the original 2015 Textreme Tour line. Very interested to see what you think of the new Tour 98, Jonas. I wonder if the 16 x 19 string pattern plays more open than the 18 x 20 of the 100P? The 16 x 18 of the 310 was too open for my taste— lots of spin, but a high launch angle and less control. Please keep the reviews coming! Thanks.

It looks like Prince “tweaked” the Beast 98 to create the new tour 98. I own both the TT310 and the Beast 98, love them and was very sorry and surprised to see the Beast disappear. I will definitely buy the new tour 98!
