Gamma Glide Cross Tennis String

Gamma introduces a revolutionary, patent pending, hybrid cross string made from a proprietary, super elastic fluorinated polymer. Glide Cross Strings dramatically reduces the sliding friction between the strings. This allows the main strings to “glide” farther and faster along the cross strings to score and return more energy to the ball. The radically faster “snap back” generates greater spin with more power, feel and comfort. This string is strictly for crosses only. The Glide string is 20 ft. in length. Check out this cool video from Gamma on this great new string!

Prince 2014 Tennis Racquets

With Prince being below the radar for the past several years, they have returned with a vengeance for 2014.  Making up for lost time, there are a myriad of choices in the new 2014 Prince tennis racquets line.  Prince has released a new collection of 6 different racquet series featuring new racquet technology. The performance racquet selection features three different racquet silos: the Prince Premier (115L ESP115 ESP105 ESP, 105L ESP), Prince Warrior (100 ESP, 100L ESP, 100, Pro 100) & Prince Tour (95, 98, 98 ESP, Pro 98, Tour 100 (16×18), Tour 100 (18×20), Tour 100T ESP, Tour 100T, Tour Pro 100). Prince has made key improvements to their franchising of the racquets reducing from four to three cutting the Thunder series. Prince also has released updates to the Classic series, O3 Series, & the Hornet series.  Now lets take a look deeper into some of the nuances of these new racquet frames.
