Consider this one a power 'tweener. Packing more control than a game improvement racquet and beating the majority of 'tweeners for power, the O3 Blue offers plenty of performance for the 2.5 to 4.0 level player. The O3 Blue fits nicely between the O3 Silver and O3 Red on the Prince power scale. We found moderate swing speeds to generate plenty of depth and pace with this racquet. As we've found from the other O3 models, both topspin and slice come with little provocation. The large sweetspot makes for comfortable hitting from all areas of the court and the feel off the stringbed is dampened and very forgiving. At net the O3 Blue offers plenty of pop for put a way volleys. Volleys felt solid even when up against hard hit passing shots and the level of comfort remained high. On serve the O3 Blue offers good access to spin and some nice power. If you're looking to add some pace and spin to your game without sacrificing control, take the O3 blue for a playtest.
