The ProKennex Ionic Ki 5X is very similar to the ProKennex Ionic Ki5 PSE, but a little bit of weight has been taken off and the racquet has been extended by half an inch to 27.5 inches. Players seeking a less demanding racquet, but still looking for stability and lots of plow through at the baseline and maneuverability and feel at the net are going to like the Ionic Ki5 X. The extra length allows for some added pace and spin on the serves, and the open string pattern also contributes to this effect.
This racquet uses new Ionic technology. Jetron is an inelastic composition of ionizing carbon structures that neutralizes charges in the frame at ball impact, which increases the energy transfer for more powerful shots. ProKennex is using Kinetic System Technology at the racquet head, which involves micro-bearings that releases energy the exact second the ball touches the strings. This results in increased power, but also less vibrations. The Ionic Ki 5X is best suited for 4.0+ players and up, as it still requires a well developed swing to the most out of what this racquet has to offer.
