ProKennex 2013 Kinetic KM FFT F175 Racquet
Comments: The quest for the Holy Grail of racquetball racquets may have just ended for me. I'm convinced that there is a "perfect" racquet for every wall banger out there. After having tried racquet after racquet I believe I have finally landed on a racquet that is best suited to my game. This ProKennex is a racquet that first of all has tremendous visual appeal. It is a beautiful racquet that one can be proud to play. Next it is an arm friendly racquet. The kinetic technology really does work if you are prone to arm strain or injury. Several games can be played without ill effect on the shoulder, elbow or wrist. I also like the maneuverability, it is responsive and extremely easy to get around when one needs to. There is no power loss in my game and my control has improved. This racquet makes a huge difference and I am confident that it will take my game to the next level and suit me for years to come. Thanks ProKennex for putting out such an all around great racquet.
Comments: I wanted to get on and write great review after first day with this racquet, but realized maybe i should just play a few weeks with it before my final grade, but it just got better and better. It does play lighter than 175 as previously stated and is equally good in front and back court. I like no vibaration at all so i had to add another dampner to it as the kinetic system seems to eliminate about 2/3 to 3/4 of vibration. Lots of power and sweet spot seems larger than the previous "kane" racquets. i know im repeating a lot of previous comments, but it is truely a great racquet!
Comments: I was playing with the 165 and loved it but I was starting to feel in a funk and felt I wasn't getting everything I could out of my shots, I took a break, changed my strings, nothing seemed to work. I was having shoulder issues because I was forcing the ball. I did some research and came to the conclusion it was time for a racquet change......I wish I had done this sooner. The 175 hits with a ton more power and while it's only a 10g difference I feel my shots are much more solid. The sweet spot is pretty solid and miss hits don't get a lot of forgiveness but since I'm not forced to try and overpower the ball anymore it was very easy to adjust my swing.I'm going to play with the stock strings for a few more days then switch over to Ashaway's Power Kill 17......Can't wait
Comments: Awesome Racquet! I was an E-Force nut until I got my hands on this one. Great Feel, Power and Control all wrapped into one. Racquet feels lighter than a 175 but is due to the balanced weight. The built in dampening system really works and makes most shots feel like you grooved them. You will definitely be happy with this one.
Comments: puts any other racket to shame, sleek and powerful, totally worth every dollar
Comments: Great racquet, but broke in 3 months. I was very excited to purchase this new racquet from PK. It had great power and accuracy as well. It was a little heavier than I had been used to (previous was KM700 & HC2170). But the extra weight provided a nice boost in my drive serves. Usually I can get about 14 - 18 months from a PK before it breaks. Several of my HC2s broke in the same place (upper right/left). But after 3 months of the F175, it cracked in the upper right/left. I continued to play for a week before the strings broke. But the strings did not break at the contact point, they broke at the frame. This is because the grommets at the top came loose and broke away from the frame, leaving the strings to rub directly against the hole. The racquet played well but seems to have some design flaws that impact durability.
Comments: Tried a Wilson Ninja and that was not for me. Sold that to a buddy, he loves it. I then demoed this racquet and fell in love with it. I have been playing 2 to 3 times a week for a month with it now. It has a lots of power. Great control and feel, it does have a slight vibration with an off center hit. I do not mind vibration though and do not use a dampener. The kinetic system seems to work very well. I have had no arm issues. I will be using this racquet for years to come.
Comments: THE BEST STICK OUT !! PERIOD you can,t get better awesome powers control and little to no vibration
Comments: Best racquet I've used to date.Very stiff racquet with tons of power,control and a huge sweet spot.The racquet weighs at 175 but it doesn't feel like so when your swinging.Many club players have swung with my PK and are surprised by the weight that it's 175 and the power and control you get.This racquet will improve your game.BELIEVE ME!
Comments: Just received my 2013 PK F175 racquet and have played around 12 or so games with it. Really nice power, sweet spot and balance but biggest positive is feel -- by far this racquet has the best touch of any racquet I've ever used. Really no downsides yet that I've found.
