    I demoed few racquets this week to find most comfortable racquets for my wrist.

    Head Microgel radical MP, Prokennex Heritage type C redondo Mid and Mid plus were stiff. So I stopped playing with them after 10 - 20mins of swing.

    On the other hand, Prokennex 7G was pretty comfortable, yet I felt that Volkl organix 10 (295g) has slightly less vibration.

    I played 7G again today with Organix 10 side by side. I am quite supprised about 7G. It is overall nice stick indeed. It has great playability, great for 2HBH (due to 1/2" longer grip). It has slightly lack of penetrating power compare to Organix 10 but it is close call to choose between two sticks if I have to choose.

    I think Kennex frames are underappreciated in general - though they do have some true believers.

    So do I. I've used the Black Ace, the Composite Dominator, the Golden Ade, a Graphite Dominator, a Silver Ace, A ceramic Destiny, the 5g, the ki 5, the Assymmetric the ki 15PSE, the 10g PSE. I think these frames are very easy to learn to play with, and do wonders for my arm

    The Redondos are not stiff, but when you have wrist issues, heavy frames can cause more pain.

    I know there are differences in perception, but the Redondo has to be one of the softest, flexiest, plushest ball pocketing frames around.

    My pain comes more from vibration off mishits adding up over time.

    If you can deal with higher SW, put lead at the tip of the 7G where the white stripe is..any plow or depth issues you had before will be gone.

    I use 8 grams and have never had a better racquet setup in my life.

    ProKennex would have the ultimate arm saver if they put the Kinetic System inside the Redondo.

    This will beat 5G, 7G, Ki5 and pretty much everything in terms of arm comfort.

    It could be string/ tension TW put in the Redondo I demoed. It was so stiff I had to stop demoing in 10 min. I don't know what kind of string and what tension they set it up. I can see it was 16G but the other letters on the string was not legible.
