Prince’s Phantom Pro 100 and Phantom 100P are mainly aimed at intermediate to advanced players who like a racket that offers great feel and control.
Unlike many other modern tennis rackets, both frames are very arm friendly with a stiffness rating under 60.
Both tennis rackets have very similar specs, so this article will look at what differentiates these two rackets so you can get a better idea as to which one might suit you better.
Racket Specs Comparison – Prince Phantom Pro 100 vs 100P
For this racket comparison, I used the 2020 Version of the Phantom Pro 100 (or Pro “100”) and the 2020 Version of the Phantom 100P (or “100P”).
|Specs||Phantom Pro 100||Phantom 100P|
|Strung Weight:||323g (11.4 oz)||326g (11.5 oz)|
|Balance:||6 Pts HL||6 pts HL|
|Power:||Low to Medium||Low to Medium|
|Beam Width:||20.5mm / 19.5mm / 16.5mm||20.5mm / 19.5mm / 16.5mm|
|Colors:||Green and Black||Grey and Black|
|Grip Type:||Prince ResiPro Grip||Prince ResiTex Tour|
In terms of differences, the 100P is the heavier of the two frames as it is 3g heavier in terms of its strung weight (326g vs 323g) and 8g heavier in terms of swing weight (328 vs 320) when compared with the Pro 100.
The 100P is also stiffer than the Pro 100 (54 vs 59) but both frames would be considered to have a low stiffness rating.
The kind of player that is most likely to enjoy playing with these tennis rackets is likely to be an intermediate to advanced player who has a full swing and good technique on their forehand and backhand.
In my opinion, these rackets will not suit a beginner as they are relatively heavy frames with small sweet spots.
These rackets are also a good option if you have had issues with tennis elbow or other arm issues in the past as they both have low frame stiffness ratings.
In terms of which of these two tennis rackets is the best, my preference would be the Pro 100 as it has a lower swing weight and stiffness rating so it will be the easier of the two to play with.
