A thoroughly modern racquet tailored to the specific requirements of elite and talented players. It is the perfect balance between power and control along with the evolution of Spiral Tech Filaments and nanotechnology which allows for unprecedented stiffness and acceleration. This geometry, including the Pro Kennex revolutionary Kinetic System and Counter-Balance Technology, enhances power and delivers a clean and satisfying level of performance. The series is available in the 165g, 170g and 175g weight specs.
These are available in 3 5/8 and 3 7/8 grip sizes
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $10 if you would like.
RacquetWorld General Notes
RacquetWorld recommends changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, 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 Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00. It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and its a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (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.
Racquet Covers - Choose one for $10 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)
A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-10 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.

Exclusive RacquetWorld Racquet Ratings
Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in RacquetWolrd Exclusive Racquet Ratings
Racquetworld's Durability Rating:
Racquetworld's Power Rating: Age 24- Age 35 Age 45+
Racquetworld's Control Rating #1 (Front Court):
Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We are basically looking at how certain components stacked together to 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 is also good to know if you are a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.
Racquetworld's Control Rating #2 (Back 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.
Racquetworld's Overall Rating: Age 24- Age 35 Age 45+

Force Flow Technology...
Pro Kennex introduces the all new Force Flow Technology, designed to maximize the aggressive flowing swing forces from players hands into the frame generating enhanced power.This new technology also provides stability and anti torque characteristics in the throat area resulting in an ultra still frame that generates additional power.
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.
Power Groove - New for 2019 - 2020
Pro Kennex's added a groove on the inside of the frame for increased maneuverability an dcontrol on each shot.

TR - Torque Reduction
Torque Reduction System that delivers smooth power.
Pro Kennex increases tip velocity by 30% in its new break-through Kinetic Counter Balance System. Pro Kennex engineers combined two of their world renown patents in order to break through industry barriers in MAss Distribution and Racquet Speed. The combination of Force Flow Technology that delivers frame stiffness and unmatched power along with the renowned Kinetic System which provides the dynamic balancing and active dampening system to improve inertia score and maximize comfort and health.
