..AVC version. This has always been my racquet of choice, but I only have one left. Is there something currently on the market that would like similar to this raquet? Thanks!

I would give the Babolat Pure Drive a try.

I have the original PK Ceramic Destiny (non-AVC), along with a PK Composite Presence (which has the AVC dampeners; same Destiny mold, but thicker/stiffer beam), in 4 3/8 sitting in the closet and am would be willing to clear them out for a cheap price. Contact me if you're interested.

vsbabolat is correct, the Pure Drive would be very similar with even more power due to the woofer system.

That is definitely one of the racquets on my to demo list next week.

Babolat Pure Storm Team
Babolat Pure Drive Team
Wilson nSix-One 95 nCode
Head Flexpoint Radical 98

I hope to test these out soon enough.

I used to use the PK Ceramic Destiny. I've used several other PK models since. The one closest to the Destiny is the Ki 10g PSE. The added weight of the PSE model gets the weight up close to the Ceramic Destiny, and they both have solid, stiff upper hoops, which the 5g doesn't. The Type R might be worth looking at too. I had a Type S, which is a lighter, stiffer version. The Type R may be pretty close too, I just haven't tried it.

Steve's right, the 10g frame is probably even closer to the Destiny, though the PD mold is derived/evolved from it.

I do not recall the specs of the ProKennex CD, is it a 98" or 100"? :) I played with mine today, 12 year old gamma string, 12 year old racquet. Going from my Hybrid Hornet to this racquet was a big change in head size. Surprisingly, I had no problems playing, and may have even done better.

Can you give us a little more description/details about AVC? Many thanks.

I am not exactly sure what AVC stands for, I'd have to look at my racquet. I did think I found the sizes, which appear to be an AVC 95, and 110. So mine must be a 95, wow.

All I remember about the AVC is that it superceded the regular Destiny. Same mold, slightly different composition perhaps?

The AVC model just didn't play the same. The lay up must have been different The AVC stood for ANTI-VIBRATION CONTROL, with soft inserts at 3 9 and 6 o'clock. .

I sold 2 of the maroon colored ones last year. Not sure about the AVC model. I got them because I used to play with them and really like them a lot. And, these were no disappointment as far as how they played. But, with an overgrip and dampener, they weighed about 13.7, with didn't help my rotator cuff tear. The Destiny's were 95 (also 110) sq in, but when I held them up to my current 100 sq in PK's, they looked the same. These are nice, modern feeling rackets that are just a little heavier than most stock "players" frames. But, they are head light, and easy to handle.

now, try the new PK Destiny Advance 290, just came out, a tad lighter than the old Destiny series but a solid performer, kinda flexible, good controllable power, grab a demo while you can, I'm a big fan of the Destiny series too.

They are listed as 95 sq inches, but mine are every bit as big as my 10g PSE's, which are 100 sq inches.

Does anyone have the specs on the Ceramic Destiny (95 sq in)? I took mine out for a spin the other day and it plays beautifully. Somehow it didn't feel like too big of a difference compared to my n6.1 95 although the beam itself took some getting used to.
