Stringing information for ProKennex Ionic Ki 5x Racquets: Tension range 52 to 68 pounds, optimum 60 pounds.

Now sporting an updated cosmetic, the Ki 5X has all the same playing attributes as the previous version. It has the Ki 5's excellent comfort, control, spin etc. - but offers a tad more pop and some extra heft. We found the extra length most noticeable on serve finding some added pace and spin. At net the Ki 5X offers a crisp response with plenty of feel and control on touch volleys. ProKennex claims that the Ionic AKS technology adds a 56% efficiency boost to its acclaimed Kinetic Technology and we have found the Ki 5X to be very comfortable during playtesting. A solid all around racquet that offers some nice pop from the back court, the Ki 5X is a welcome update to the Pro 7G. We found this one best suited to 4.0 to 5.5 level players.

Note: ProKennex racquets come with a drawstring nylon sack and not a traditional racquet cover.

Ionic Technology

According to ProKennex the new Ionic-AKS technology offers a 56% performance improvement over the original Kinetic System. The use of a new composite Kinetic material and a process designed to reduce the build up of static electrical force inside the Kinetic strip adds even more power and further reduces frame shock and vibration compared to the original Kinetic System.
Kinetic System Technology

Thousands of micro-bearings are housed inside chambers around the racquet head. As the racquet swings forward, the micro-bearings move to the back wall of the frame, loading energy. When the racquet strikes the ball, this kinetic mass transfers forward, adding power and reducing frame shock and vibration.
