    the Ki5X is the extended one. Yes, the Ki5 PSE is great. Actually all of the PSEs are great. I use a Ki10 PSE and it's awesome. Not the same thing as Redondo but they're made for different people.

    I used the frame up until I switched to the Redondos. For an agressive baseliner, it's sweeter than sugar.

    Great Racquet!!

    the pro-kennex ionic 5 pse is actually 27.16" (not 27")! It is a great racquet; I used it for two years until I had back surgery. Sweet and powerful (yet good control) racquet.

    This racquet has been great while my TE continues to heal. I love the muted feel and the heft. It's also amazing in the control department.

    One is strung with pre-stretched gut (Tonic 15) at 50# (mains)/Isospeed Baseline Spin crosses (45#).

    Two is strung with pre-stretched gut (Tonic 15) at 50# (mains/crosses).
