Comments: Hit with a demo for a few days. Racquet is excellent for my groundstrokes, especially for my
one-handed backhand. The extra mass gave it more pop. Also pretty solid for volleys and serving. The only downside is the extra
weight made it less maneuverable, so there might be some problems with rapid exchange volleys at the net in doubles. But I liked
it for singles.
Comments: I'm a 4.5 and just bought two of these after a long demo process of arm friendly racquets. I narrowed
it down to the Q5 and Ki315 but picked the Q5 because of the added power, which was particularly noticeable on my serve and
volleys. The better competition is using more powerful racquets. I feel I should do the same.
Comments: Here is the update after using this racquet for nearly six months. Over all it is a great stick with plenty
of power and control along with ample feel. As for the tennis-elbow, well the racquet has not helped it. I've been working on
mechanics and technique to help it heal. So despite the claims, my arm issues persist, however I'm keeping the Q5 because it is a
great overall performer. I may even try the lighter version as the 315g feels heavier than the specs to me, especially when
compared to similar dimension racquets from other companies - like the Babolot Pure Drive Rodick.
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.
