These are several new models due here by the end of September, which we cannot yet discuss. The new Kinetic Ionic Series Ki 20 is due on 8/30. Prokennex has improved its Kinetic technology by reducing the amount of static in the chambers. Previously, static would cause some of the Kinectic pellets to be trapped against the walls of the chambers. The new Ionic racquets allow more of the pellets to move free, thus improving the benefits of the Kinetic technology.

Ionic! Good heavens. With one zap of static electricity, Pro Kennex joins the world of modern marketing.

This reminds me of a story -- an Oxygen molecule met a Sodium ion while walking down the street one day, and noticed that Sodium was crying.

"What's the matter?" asked Oxygen

"I've lost one of my electrons!" sniffled Sodium

"Are you sure?"

"Yes -- I'm positive!"

Besides the Kinetic update, did the size, weight, balance change?

If I remember my chemistry correctly Sodium + Oxygen is about as volatile as Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee. Its stored in oilpaper in kerosene to prevent it from spontaneously igniting. A small cube thrown in a swimming pool is quite spectactular....... :lol:

Yuck. Gimme a PK5G w/ the antistatic chambers and I'll buy one :-)

I've tried a few of their new and improved versions: PK15G, PK5GSE. I still come back to my PK5G. Much less arm pain and more solid feeling...

If the new versions aren't out till sept, where did you get one at? :idea:

poncho, the ones he said he tried have been out for a while.

Sorry...didn't mean to imply I tried out the new anti-static ones yet.

I meant the improvements over the original PK5G. Forgot I also tried out the PK7G as well and still liked my PK5G better...
