Patterned after Ruben Gonzalez's first signature frame (O3 RG), the 2014 Ektelon O3 Tour 165 Racquet is stronger and more powerful thanks to the addition of Carbon Kevlar material which strengthens the graphite in key areas of the frame. This racquet is lightweight and maneuverable thanks to the O3 ports, but with its 8 point head-heavy balance it's able to pack a punch on court. Weighing in at a true 165 grams unstrung, the O3 Tour 165 is ideal for someone looking for a performance stick at a good bargain.

Comments: I've been using E-force Benadium 170 for more than couple of years and switch this, it was best choice for control and I got wider sweet zone. 80% Recommended.

Comments: I bought this to replace my O3 tour 180. It has been a great replacement with a balance and power that I was missing. I will buy another to have a back up.
