I have am a 4.0 player (baseliner, like to hit hard with lots of top spin) who has been playing with the Wilson K Factor KPro Open for a year now. I really enjoy this stick for the spin, power and ease of use with groundstrokes with my extreme grip.
About every year, I get some new sticks to demo. Recently I received 3...

Wilson K Factor Kobra
Wilson K Factor Kobra Team FX
Wilson K Factor KPro Team.FX

Out of the 3 I liked the Wilson K Factor KPro Team.FX the best. The Kobras did nothing to peak my interest. The issue, I am really not sure if this new FX technology is right for me and my game.
True, the Wilson K Factor KPro Team.FX has lots of power with less force needed. This stick may have increased power but I am not sure it has the control I need.
If any of you have tried Wilson K Factor KPro Team.FX and the Wilson K Factor KPro Open, I would really like to get your opinion/review.

Thanks

I'm currently transitioning from the Kpro Open, a racquet I really like. If I were a baseliner maybe I wouldn't be changing, but I need something with less power and volleys a bit more consistently so the Kobras and teams aren't for me.

By the way, what string setup do you use in the KPro Open?

If you enjoyed the Kpro Open. Try the Kobra Tour. IMO is a impoved update of that racquet.

I have 2 of the Kpro Open sticks

Stick 1 -> Wilson K gut Pro 16 @ 59 punds
Stick 2 -> Lux Big Banger ALU Touch Hybrd 16L @59

I really like the Wilson K gut Pro string
