I got my KPS88 in the mail yesterday morning(bought it on the boards). I was so excited that I couldn't go back to sleep. I weighed the racket and did all my usual tests to make sure it was genuine(HL,writing, etc..) and it passed. I was surprised how the weight was so close to spec or exactly on. With the strings it weighed 12.7oz I put an overgrip on it right away to get ready for my day of tennis and did a final weighing where it came in at 12.9oz. This is exactly what I was looking for. When I got on the courts I warmed up by playing my first set with with my Volkl Tour10 VE MP. I started using the KPS88 the 2nd set. I am a baseliner and I almost never play net. I thought it was too bad considering all the positive things I heard about the KPS88 at net that I would probably never get to use one of the racket's best characteristics. From first picking this racket up I realized that I love everything about it. The weight is perfect for me and even though I usually use rackets that are not that stiff I could really appreciate the stiffness of it. Serves and my forehand were amazing right away and even though I needed a couple minutes to make my backhand groove with the racket it was an extremely pleasant experience. I am a lefty and I switch between a 1HBH and a 2HBH depending on how high or low the ball is and what type of shot I want to set up. The KPS88 performed well for both. There were a couple points in the set that brought me in to play net and I could not understand what was happening. I have absolutely no net game and I was suddenly hitting amazing volleys. The person I was playing against(who I play often) could not understand where my net game suddenly came from. How is it possible that a racket could be so much better at net than so many others. I might have been partly mental because I read so many reviews on the KPS but I don't understand how the KPS could transform my play at net like this. After playing a couple sets with the KPS I am addicted. I love this racket. The weight, balance, feel, beam width and look of this racket are exactly what I have been looking for and it just feels right. I don't think I will be buying any rackets for a long long time. Anybody else get a similar feeling from the KPS or another racket? Please share.
