The Pro Kennex Momentum series is back for the 2016-2017 season after a 13 year hiatus from the Pro Kennex Racquetball line with some major technology changes. After you hit with these new sticks you are going to ask where they have been all these years?? Pro Kennex has 3 weights in the 2016-2017 line which are 165, 170, and 175. Whats the new technology/bells and whistle that make the new Momentum play so well? New Technologies are explained below:
The Momentum racquets will feature an all new stealth shape design call the Viperform. By tapping into the aerospace industry, Pro Kennex has designed a modified parabolic arc to achieve a new range of strength, stiffness and stability. The Viperform design propels players into a new level of play. Engineered with Pro kennex's most sophisticated technologies, the Momentum Series Racquets are equipped with their highly acclaimed Kinetic System Technology for active dampening system, Counter Balance Technology that reduces tip weight for increased velocity and Torque Reduction System that delivers smooth power.
These are available in 3 5/8 grip size only

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: 92.00
Racquetworld's Power Rating: Age 24- 95.55 Age 35 95.55 Age 45+ 93.58
Racquetworld's Control Rating #1 (Front Court): 96.28
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): 95.30
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- 95.29 Age 35 95.29 Age 45+ 94.31
