Racket Review: Pro Kennex KiQ+15
The Pro Kennex is the best value racket out there for the player who wants comfort and control
In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces.
An update on the KiQ15, the KiQ+15 has one of the largest head sizes and chunkiest beams in the intermediate pack. At 26mm it’s a whole 7mm thicker than that of the Q+ Tour in the advanced category. The idea behind this model is to provide a light, powerful racket for the player who wants extra comfort and control with easy access to spin.
Despite slightly underwhelming our testers with its minimalist black and blue appearance, this model certainly showcased its ability to generate power on the court. Elliot said: “I managed to get so much power and it was surprisingly so easy to generate as well as having a really consistent feel.”
Jem was also impressed with the great power levels due to the large sweet spot but was concerned of over hitting slightly in the control stakes. With an extra 25% of Kinetic mass in the frame, to maintain comfort for those with tennis elbow, this solid racket was certainly recommended for intermediate level players who are looking for a comfortable racket that is also able to generate more power in their game.
