This middleweight version of the Ki 5 combines arm-friendly comfort with controllable power and raw speed
Updated with a more modern beam design, the PROKENNEX KI 5 270 TENNIS RACKET specialises in speed, comfort and controllable power. At 270 grams unstrung, this tennis racquet swings easier than the 295g version, making it slightly better for less advanced players who are perfecting their mechanics. For 2022, ProKennex has modernised the beam of this tennis racket with a trapezoidal throat design, resulting in a racket that feels more stable through impact while also transferring greater power to the ball.
This tennis racquet's defining feature is Kinetic Technology, which depolys movable mass around the hoop to deliver the best arm protection available. Other technologies include a Comfort Cap, which adds Kinetic technology to the butt cap to attenuate residual vibrations. This Ki 5 also benefits from a Spiral Tech Carbon layup which delivers cleaner ball feedback along with less frame vibration on off-center impact. Ultimately, this is a great option for the rising intermediate player who wants an arm-friendly racket that can hit every shot in the book.
