The Platinum 175 Limited Edition is another Racquetworld exclusive. What makes it so “special and limited” compared to other Pro Kennex racquets and the Core Platinum 175? Well…this Platinum 175 utilizes Pro Kennex’s most popular Kinetic technology and has the teardrop shape and feel that Pro Kennex players have loved for years.

These are available in 3 5/8 grip size only
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), or Head TackiMac for the added traction to prevent slippage. The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down. For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through. When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.
The Prince Premier string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Prince Premier string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Prince Premier restring upgrade is $21.95. It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Ektelon Silencer (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge. If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?" It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper. For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.

It's all about kinetic energy. As you swing the Kinetic racquet foward, tiny elements of kinetic mass, housed in dozen of of chambers around the racquet head, are storing energy. When the ball hits the strings, the strings flex and the ball compresses. The ball speed drops to zero. The ball and string are now loaded with energy. Finally the racquet frame flexes backward as your swing continues. Going with the flow, the ball assumes the racquets's forward speed. Forces are now in place to set off a scientifically calculated Kinetic reaction. The ball and strings now start releasing their stored energy causing the ball to go faster than the racquet. At this moment, the energy release from the ball and strings triggers the kinetic mass. It explodes forward in all chambers. This activated mass joins with the mass of the racquet to increase the area of efficiency of the hitting surface and magnify the possibilities of a good shot.
Nano Autocure Technology...
The only autoclave process in the world that is used in racket sports technology. The Nano autocure process removes air and impurities from between the graphite layers to create a totally seamless racquet for strength and flexibility.
Hot Melt Technology...
The most consistent graphite manufacturing process used in the racquet sports technology. With 40T super micro carbon fiber, the shaft is compressed under extremely high pressure to create the strongest shaft delivering maximum flexability. Perfect for high level players

Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in Racquetworld's Technology/Ratings Section
Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We’re basically looking at how certain components stacked together produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Pat’s brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. It’s also good to know if you’re a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.
Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.
