Which Racquet to Buy?

I'm wanting to purchase a new stick, but I'm not sure what would be most suitable for my needs. I definitely would like to buy a Prince racquet. My two-fisted backhand has a good backswing and flat power, but my forehand has a compact swing, is relatively loopy and lacks power.

I'm deciding mainly between-
Prince 03 White
Prince Ozone Seven
Prince 03 Speedport White

But any other suggestions are welcome. I'm looking to buy it by Monday, so the sooner the better if you have any ideas. Thanks very much in advance.

all prince 03 rackets are horrible, but if you're set on buying one, go with the speedport white

Thanks for replying, but can you in any way elaborate on that? I'm not really knowledgable when it comes to racquet technology.

well, 03 makes the sweetspot larger (up to 50% larger in the speedports) and although i recognise it can be a useful technology to have, i personally hate it as i dont want a larger sweetsport.
the reason i say the speedport is the one to go for is because you should get a grommet strip which has conventional grommets in, meaning you can customise the rackets and take away the larger sweetspot, leaving just the aerodynamic properties

I've ordered the 0Zone Seven for a very good price. I'm actually pretty certain they made a mistake. I know I went against your personal preference, but I hope I've made the right decision.

Just an update, I feel that the head of this racquet is too light. I like to feel like I'm generating some power, but the ball just flies off this racquet. I do think that I'll adapt in time though.
