These aren't even on the prince website yet but are available now from derek lawrence sports on ebay.

I saw Peter Nicol and Tim Garner playing with them at the English Open and they certainly look cool! There is a tour model and a black model (145grams and 135 grams) and they have an extra two o-ports at the throat of the frame compared to the standard o3 and the headsize is smaller down to 450cm2. This will have made the string pattern slightly denser aswell as being smaller headsize. On paper the speedport black should be the quickest swinging racket ever designed.

I bought mine from dlSPORT on ebay and it was £116 which is £10 more than the original o3 model now costs on the site and a lot cheaper than the shops.

At first I thought 300 Euro was a bit too much for a squash racket, but given what paul says about the spin for serve it's probably worth it

That must be about the dearest racket on the market?

This racket is similar to the original o3 tour. It vibrates a little less, there's possibly a little less flex in the frame when hitting at the top of the string bed, there's a little less vibration and overall it seems a little more powerful. It's an evolution of the original o3 and a little less raw. Personaly I prefer the old o3. The biggest difference is when you spin to decide who serves, if you get it perfectly verticle is spins for ages!

I played with the tour model for the 1st time last night. I found it similar to the old O3 tour, when I've restrung it with 225 I'll be able to make a better comparison. The head size seems the same but the frame is a little chunkier.
