Racket review: Prince Red LS 105
There is some serious whip to be found for serves and overheads
The weapon of choice for former world No.1 Jelena Jankovic, the Prince Red LS 105 is also a solid choice for improvers
Proof that tennis is a game of different strokes for different folks, the Prince Red LS 105 is the current racket of choice of former world No.1 Jelena Jankovic – so who better to tell you about it?
“I just love it,” the Serbian told tennishead in 2014. “It gives me great control and precision, a lot of power and it is very loyal. It is a very dependable racket.”
The same goes for us mere amateurs – a generous sweet spot and dampened feel thanks to those O3 ports, the holes in the frame where the grommet strip would normally be, make this a solid choice for improvers, while there is some serious whip to be found for serves and overheads.
