Heavier racket for a slower game, powerful and with a solid control – both accurate drops and powerful strokes from the back of the court are not a problem.

Update: This racket has been already replaced by a newer version – the Pro Tour 850.

Reviews:

Replacing the Speedport Tour, the EXO3 Pro Tour came out in 2011 – the difference was clear right away as the new version featured a completely different head shape, more closed and with a large, weird-looking inverted power ring. Nevertheless, the 2012 version came back to the traditional Prince design with strings going all the down down to the throat.

The EXO3 mark means the O-Ports (less vibration and larger sweet spot) remained, only there’s the new exo skeletal structure.

This squash racket has been specifically design for James Willstrop, former World No. 1, to suit his playing style. It’s heavier (145 g unstrung), so it offers more stability to control the ball, and ideal to delay your shots to disrupt your opponent’s pace and slow down the game. Plus the head heavy balance provides a lot of power for your shots.

So while the EXO3 Tour is great for a slower game, controlling the ball, making accurate drops or powerful strokes from the back of the court, some players might find it slow and cumbersome (due to its higher weight and head heavy balance).
