With its extended 27.5" length, the Pro Kennex Kinetic Ki Q5X puts some serious momentum behind each shot. Players who prefer the stability that comes with a higher swingweight should like this one. Loaded with plowthrough, the Q5X feels very solid against pace, but it also manages to accelerate through contact surprisingly well for its weight. The upshot is a groundstroke weapon with easy access to power and spin. At net, the rock solid feel makes it a cinch to redirect pace and keep the ball deep. And there's plenty of pop for finishing points. The extended length comes in handy on serves where stronger players will have enough leverage to dial up the power and spin. All in all, this racquet is a nice option for the 4.5+ player looking for a solid feeling stick that doesn't skimp on comfort, power or spin.
