View Full Version : Prokeenex BlackAce 98

02-03-2010, 07:55 AM
Hello, I am considering buying the blackAce 98 as a present for my father, particular because of the flex(58) and being more soft on the arm.
What are the specs for this racket? Are they the same from TW America? The paintjob in TW america is different from the one in TW Europe, Is it a different version of the blackAce 98?
Thank you

we actually have two versions of the ProKennex KI 5:
and a lighter version:

The cosmetics are slightly different as you already noted, but the playing characteristics are pretty much the same.

What is your dadīs current racquet?

Thanks for your response, but i am interested in the black ace. my father currently plays with a prince speedport tour(but it was stollen) but itīs constantly using his old prokeenex cooper ace because of the control and comfort. I was considering the black ace because of his love for prokeenex rackets and the low stifness(58). I am searching for a racket with low stifness good control and feel. 19/20mm beam; max weight 345gr and balance 32mm; headsize: 93-98. I was interested in the black Ace 93 and borisbecker 11 also ( Are you going to get one of those in stock?)

Youīre welcome. No, donīt think we will get the Ki 5 93 or the Becker 11.
Funnily I played the Copper Ace myself for like 2 or 3 years when it came out.
Still have it stored on the attic.
Maybe these two racquets could fit?

Yes the CooperAce is a great racket i learned to play with that frame, thatīs why i play with a prestige classic 600. I like volkl rackets i think i will decide for the Volkl Power Bridge 10 Mid. Thank you
