The Pro Kennex Ki 5 280 is a lighter version of the Ki 5 320, it also continues Pro Kennex's tradition of featuring arm-friendly technology that can help or alleviate players tennis elbow. With multiple groundbreaking technologies, the Pro Kennex Ki 5 280 has added power and spin to the already outstanding comfort benefits the brand is known for. By segmenting the Kinetic Moveable Mass and placing it into the four corners of the racquet head, Quadfocused design increases the frame’s torsional stability even further, moving the sweet spot higher in the string face (as the mass of the frame moves higher, the sweet spot follows it). By stabilizing the frame’s corners, it will deflect less, increasing power and spin production simultaneously. Additionally, the special-treated spiral carbon offers improved dampening properties while the high modulus graphite provides strength and needed rigidity.
Weighing in at 280g (9.9 oz.) unstrung, the Ki 5 allows players with fast swing speeds to take advantage of the Q’s benefits. A more headlight balance than its lighter brother and a moderate swingweight of 311 (strung) improves maneuverability from the baseline and at net, making this a great racquet for up and coming intermediate to advanced players. The proven Kinetic technology “loads up” the Kinetic mass on the backswing and then propels it forward at contact, improving power and absorbing impact shock for exceptional comfort.
