A great option for beginners just getting into the sport or for someone who wants a performance racquet at a good bargain.  The Ektelon O3 Tour Lite is a step up from other introductory frames as it is a graphite composite racquet equipped with Ektelon's Triple Threat with Tungsten, O3, and Power Ring technologies.  Definitely a peg up from the big box sports stores aluminum frames in the same price point.  The racquet is lightweight and maneuverable but with its head heavy balance, it's also able to pack a punch on court.  The modern graphics give this racquet a great look to go along with the other bells and whistles Ektelon has put into this stick.

Comments: I used it 2 times and something popped inside the racquet making annoying noises while I play. Unfortunately it's too late to return it. Very disappointed with this product.

All racquets purchased from Racquetball Warehouse have a one year manufacturer warranty against manufacturing defects.  If your racquet is still under warranty you may send it to us for warranty consideration.

Comments: Received the Ektelon O3 Tour Lite 175 racquet a week ago and used it four times within six days before something popped inside the racquet creating a rattling noise within the frame. Apparently, it's under warranty but takes 4-6 weeks to evaluate the racquet before potentially issuing a replacement. Very disappointed in the product and replacement policy. I will have to buy another racquet to replace the one week old new one.
