    Or

    PRINCE O3 TOUR SQUASH RACKET

    Any thoughts, both are selling around £70-80 each?

    What makes you fancy either of them?

    Personally I would go for a dunlop or technifibre over either of them. Although prince is an excellent squash brand I find their racquets very particular!

    My squash coach recommends the Prince O3, which is the one I'm going for. Good price, thanks for the link.

    If he has one I would recommend a test drive first if you haven't already

    He's got the O3 Black, which I really liked.
