Are there any current offerings that use this magical fiber? When 20% is mixed with the graphite, you get a great feel (PT280, PS 6.0 and 6.1, etc). It seems like all the focus now is on extremely stiff graphite and nano this and that. I am not opposed to those materials, just wish that Kevlar (etc) had not been abandoned.

Yeah 20 % kevlar is great in a racquet.
The PK type R is a flexy racquet with kevlar in it. Makes for a very solid stable and buttery racquet.
A good current racquet with kevlar is the Kneissl red star.

The Satellite Tour is made of Graphite and Polyamide. You had a inner shell made of stiff high-modulus Graphite and a outer shell made of a soft Polyamide for improved frame dampening and increased feel.
