Prokennex KI 5 (320g) Tennis Racquets:
Introducing the Prokennex KI 5 (320g) Tennis Racquets into their popular Ki Series. This racquet, along with the others in the 4th generation of the Ki Series, utilizes Spiral Tech Carbon Technology. The special-treated spiral carbon offers improved dampening properties, while high modulus graphite provides strength and needed rigidity. Players can expect significant dampening as a result for greater comfort and control. Additionally, Pro Kennex has implemented an upgraded Kinetic Comfort Cap to attenuate residual vibration, and further decrease hand and forearm fatigue. This is done through a carbon coating process that has lived up to expectations, and then some. As can always be expected from Ki Series Racquets, the moveable mass inside the Kinetic chambers helps to not only add power, but largely dissipate shock for incredible comfort. The Ki 5 320 is perfect for competitive players looking for a highly stable and effective racquet to gain an edge on the competition.
The Ki 5 320 sports an unstrung weight of 320g (11.3oz), a 100 square inch head size, and standard length of 27 inches. It has a 7 point head light balance, and a string pattern of 16×20.

- Ionic Technology: According to ProKennex the new Ionic-AKS technology offers a 56% performance improvement over the original Kinetic System. The use of a new composite Kinetic material and a process designed to reduce the build up of static electrical force inside the Kinetic strip adds even more power and further reduces frame shock and vibration compared to the original Kinetic System.
- Ki (Kinetic + Ionic): This is the second generation of the Kinetic System. It uses an Ionic coating process to alleviate all static electricity to fully optimize the dynamic power of the micro-bearings. The result is MORE power, MORE Stability and MORE comfort.
- SpiralTech Carbon: A combination of stiff high modulus graphite (for power) and softer Spiral Tech graphite (for dampening). ProKennex claims this offers better playability than conventional graphite frames.
