From the first shot, it is obvious that the O3 Red offers a lot of comfort and a pleasing, dampened feel. From the baseline, it feels very maneuverable, allowing the player to whip the racquet through the contact zone and we found easy access to both topspin and slice. The feel from the stringbed is lively and players should find it easy to generate pace and depth on groundstrokes. At net the O3 Red's maneuverability shines and the racquet feels lightning fast in play. This one is a great choice for intermediate doubles play and for aggressive players who like to charge the net. On serve, there's plenty of pace and spin to be found, thanks to the lively feel and easy mobility. All in all, a solid racquet that will find favor with stronger beginners and intermediate players looking to add a little pace, power and zip to their shots.
