Intermediate level players looking for more pace and spin on their shots while enjoying a comfortable feeling racquet should take a close look at the KFour Midplus. The 105sq. inch headsize offers a generous sweetspot and the 16/19 string pattern is openly spaced, providing a lively feel and plenty of bite on the ball. With a close to even balanced feel, the racquet is maneuverable, yet places plenty of mass behind the ball for solid hitting. The comfortable response continues at net, where the racquet also feels fast and easy to maneuver. Our TW playtesters found plenty of control for placement volleys and a comfortable response even when volley a heavy passing attempt. On serve the racquet offers easy access to pace and spin thanks to its open string pattern maneuverability. Maneuverability is enhanced via Wilson's (K)ompact Center. A reduction in the size of the yoke (the "Y" shaped area between the handle and head of the racquet) provides additional feel and is the result of direct feedback from Roger Federer. Wilson's proprietary (K)araphite Black construction, provides - according to Wilson - improved stability and a stronger response. All in all an impressive racquet that's well worth a demo for intermediate level players of all styles.
