Stringing information for :

With this lighter version of the Black Ace 98 ProKennex serves up an ultra maneuverable control racquet. With its dense 18x20 string pattern this one is loaded with directional control, giving it a very precise response on full swings. The Black Ace 98 is great for the intermediate or advanced player who wants the control of a player's racquet but without the heavy weight. It's also quite comfortable and boasts a wonderfully traditional feel thanks to the low flex rating (59 RA). From the baseline our TW playtesters found a very versatile stick, one that balanced great control with easy access to high swing speeds for cranking up the pace. This racquet's controlled explosiveness allowed our playtesters to take more aggressive cuts when going for risky passing shots or applying heavy spin. At net this one is all about speed and precision. It moves into position very easily and offers trouble free placement. It also has impressive stability for its light weight. All in all, this is a great option for any player looking for great control in a very speedy package.
