    Currently i'm in a physical therapy to diminish the pain in my elbow.
    My integral solution involves to change from my stiff racquet to an "arm friendly". People from Prokennex.com recommends Prokennex Ki10 due to similar characteristics to my PD but more adequate to my elbow.
    Have you experience with this racquet?
    What is your opinion about playability, spin potential, control and related topics?
    I appreciate your feedback!!!!

    First things first....get the Alupower out of your PD unless you're extremely masochistic. I'm using a 15 PSE for the moment and have hit with a 10 PSE. Both are arm friendly and the 10 seems to me a good substitute for a PD though you'll have more swingweight to get used to (with more stability as the reward).

    somehow I wouldn't buy a racket which is only 3 points light for tennis elbow reasons.

    but who knows ...

    Thanks to all of you for your useful threads!!
    I'm going to try Ki10, not sure if PSE option (more weight).
    Going to string with Hurricane 16 main @ 50 lbs and Xcel crosses @ 55lbs.
    Any final comment about weight and strings?

    I demoed the Ki 10 and found it not to be headlight enough to be arm friendly. My only recomendation would be to use a full multi job or gut and get rid of the poly.
