I've played extensively with the O3 Speedport Red, but am also pretty familiar with the Ozone Seven. You may not know it, but the Ozone Seven is really just a slight variation of the old O3 Red. In my view, the Speedport Red is a more stable racquet that offers better feel. I definitely found I received better arm feedback from the Speedport Red, and I also found it to be more predictable off the ground.
While both racquets are extremely maneuverable, I thought the Speedport Red was more agile around the net. I definitely had more feel with it on the volleys, but also felt that it produced a more solid ball than the Ozone Seven when I needed some firmness.
While the ball behaves predictably off both racquets, I found the Speedport Red to be exceptional for hitting backhand slices. Not only could I get a little more zip on the ball, I was also more accurate with it. As for topspin, they're both really spin friendly racquets, primarily due to the exceptional swing speed you can generate with Prince's O-Port/Speedport technology.
Which Triple Threat racquet have you been playing with?
