You may think drilling huge holes in your racquet would decrease strength, stiffness, and durability...well not anymore!  The 2011 Ektelon O3 Black 175 is manufactured using Ektelon's graphite resin bonding process, making this great playing frame more durable and impact resistant than ever. Ektelon has re-vamped their graphite bonding process to create a stronger frame that is more resistant to breaking, while still incorporating their O3 technology.  By integrating huge "O-Ports" in the molding process you get a much larger sweetspot, a livelier response, and increased power, all by providing total string freedom. O-Ports also make the frame more aerodynamic, reducing drag, and producing faster swing speeds.

Comments: Bought this racquet back in April, right before a tournament. Love the power and control. Hate the frame design. Cracked the frame playing 2-4 times per week, without hitting walls. I hope that RbW takes care of me. I sent it back today and now I have to play with my old Blue Ektelon until they send me a new one. Thinking about upgrading to a the ESP Classic.

Comments: This racquet was a great upgrade to some of the older style racquets that I was using. Great power and control, but after about 4 months, I upgraded to e-force heat seeker line racquets. Love Ektelon, but the racquet hitting power is unmatched. The red fireballs are still the best!
