Comments: I've recently switched to the ProKennex Ki Q5 315 as I was using the HEAD YOUTEK INSTINCT MP, nice
stick but my arm got sore and do not want to risk further injury. The Ki Q5 315 has a solid feel from the baseline and has a good
powerful feeling. Felt good on the 1st and 2nd serve and while returning serves. Seems like a good alternative for players that
need to be careful with arm and shoulder joints.
Comments: I just switched to this racquet from the Head Radical OS. I loved the consistency I had with the Head but
it was hurting my arm (tennis-elbow) and lacked power. I've only been hitting with the Pro Kennex Q5 for about 3 weeks now so I
can't comment much on the tennis-elbow (it still bothers me) but there is definitely less vibration on contact with the Q5. The Q5
is also more powerful and has better control. My backhand especially has more pop. The weight is perfect for me too. No need to
customize it. I've used multi and poly strings and the poly provides better control. Both strings feel the same to me which I can't
say I've felt with other racquets. I'll post an update on the arm issues in a few more weeks once I've spent more time with it. I'm
loving it so far!
Comments: A good racquet, but not for the weak hands.
Comments: It's a softer and gentler Ki 315, which itself is a PDR without the pain. It pockets the ball better than the
Ki 315, has almost an old school feel to it, but isn't quite as easy to whip through the ball. It is one of the best feeling racquets at
net that I've used in 35 years. The demo was strung around 55 with a multi, but I'd probably go up to somewhere between 57 and
60 with a multi.
Comments: Extraordinary comfort in a very solid racquet, with above average power. It's a kinder and gentler PDR
terms of stability, if perhaps not quite power. It's a great racquet for those with arm problems, and equally capable at baseline or
front court. It's extremely solid on volleys, and makes you feel like you'll never be happy again with one of those flimsy 11.2
racquets. Spin is easy to generate. Like all ProKennex offerings the finish is flawless, execution superb, including a novel
soft sack it comes with.
