    That new KPS88 is a relic of the 80's designed for a slower game than is played today. I can't tell you how happy I am when I see an opponent playing with that stick, It means I'll probably be able to mop the floor wit them.

    To all the wannabes out there, buy a racquet that's suited to you and your game not someone else's, you will enjoy tennis much more.

    Hey, before hitting with KPS88, I totally thought the same, that, the stick is no different than any 80's sticks, i.e PS 85 and its copies.

    I got my KPS a week ago. One thing I can say is, this stick is definitely designed for POWER. Strung at 65lbs w. nat gut and poly crosses at 61, this stick has more power than almost any other similar sized mid sticks!!!

    Once you try, you will see that it has nothing to do w. 80s slower game. But is it a good fit to me? Not for me, I like way lower powered sticks, I am still trying to tame the power with my shots. Moreover, these kinda mid racquets I think would be a better match for ppl who can practise at least 2-3 hrs a day 4-5days a week, since it is for precise shot makers, esp for S&V'ers.
    Even if you are perfectly fit to handle the SW, the racquet will tire you out mentally.
