ProKennex Ki 15 260
ProKennex adds a new cosmetic to the Ki 15 (260). Like the previous generation, this racquet's light weight and forgiving 105in² head size make it great for those who are learning the game. It should also work for the savvy doubles player who wants a speedy weapon. With its extended 27.5" length, this stick will give you extra momentum and power on groundies, serves and overheads. Featuring Kinetic Technology, the Ki 15 deploys deploys dynamic mass in the head to reduce the amount of shock that reaches your tendons and joints. Other arm-saving technologies include a Comfort Cap, which adds Kinetic technology to the butt cap to attenuate residual vibrations. The Ki 15 also comes with a firm Spiral Tech Carbon layup to create fewer impurities and air bubbles. The result, according to ProKennex, is a more stable and powerful response when striking the ball. On groundstrokes power comes easy, and the high comfort level makes for an arm-friendly hitting experience. There's also enough spin-potential to bring the ball down hard. At net, the 105in² head provides a generous hitting area for making clean contact with the ball. There is also plenty of power for ending points with a bang. This racquet also shines on serve where the extended length translates into easier net clearance and massive power. With this update, the Ki 15 (260) remains a seductive option for improving players who want an arm-friendly racquet with easy access to power.
