ProKennex updates this classic player's frame with a lighter, faster feel. At under 12 ounces and boasting a very manageable swingweight (316 RDC), this is the perfect option for advanced players looking for a nice blend of control and maneuverability. The headlight balance not only allows for high swing speeds and extra spin, it makes for easy preparation. The excellent maneuverability makes serving a breeze, allowing for a powerful snap through the hitting zone. Perhaps the most impressive quality of the updated Black Ace Mid is the control. The dense pattern and thin beam not only provide a heightened feel for ball, they deliver a very predictable response. Block volleys feel stable and very precise, and there is enough mobility for quick reactions and easy put-aways. Finally there is comfort. This one is plush. While advanced players will love this one, it should also work well for developing intermediates who want to make the leap into a user-friendly midsize. A very impressive update indeed!
