ProKennex Ki 15 (280g)
This racket is perfect for the intermediate player who wants an arm-friendly racket with juicy levels of power and spin.
At 69.8cm long, the Ki 15 will give you the ability to add extra pace to your groundstrokes, serves and overheads. It also features a luxurious 677cm² head, making it more forgiving than a standard midplus racket.
Comfort is impressive thanks to the Kinetic Technology, which deploys dynamic mass in the head to reduce the amount of shock that reaches your arm. 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 a more stable and powerful response.
On groundstrokes this racket offers a comfortably crisp feel at impact, and it rewards medium length strokes with easy depth. There's also big power available on full swings. The open 16x19 string pattern will give you the needed bit to bring the ball down sharply with spin. At net the generous 677cm² head provides a forgiving platform for making clean contact with the ball. The extended length (69.8cm) not only improves reach on volleys, but it will help you dial up the power on serve.
Like the previous model, this arm-friendly racket is ideal for the intermediate player who wants easy access to power and spin.
