Sometimes I like to revisit racquets I reviewed a while back. This is the Prince Textreme Tour 310 Review revisited.
The Prince Textreme Tour 310 Racquet Review was done in 2019 and it was convincing enough for me to make the switch to for a period of six months or so (which is a long commitment for me when it comes to tennis racquets). I just loved the easy playability, connected feel, good power and spin, decent comfort. It wasn’t all the way to a Pure Drive style racquet, more in the category of a HEAD Speed Pro, kind of in the middle of the Pro and the MP actually.
Now I tried it again with a bunch of different play-testers and they were all enamored with the racquet. One Hungarian tennis coach has already made the switch and placed an order for a couple of Textreme Tours. One Portuguese high-level player thought the racquet played great but felt some discomfort with a stiffer string. My take on it was similar to the first time around, great playability, all-around performance on all shots. My one-handed backhand felt great for a 100 sq inch racquet (I usually struggle a bit with the maneuverability on that wing), I felt in tune with my forehand and could whip up a nice deal of topspin and the feel on volleys and touch shots was crisp and direct.
What struck me a bit differently this time around was the stiffness. I have a more sensitive arm these days (testing too many racquets, over-playing) and value comfort more than the first time I used it. The Prince Textreme Tour is a little stiffer than I remember it. Not harsh, but if you are sensitive to stiffer frames, this is something to take note of. There are other Prince racquets I like, such as the Phantom 100P or 100X, which are much more comfortable on the arm.

Despite the slight stiffness concern, the Prince Textreme Tour 100 310g version is as good as I remembered it.
