    I am also curious to know if TW will be stocking this racket.

    I emailed Pro Kennex again and they said that it should be available in April.

    Well, I guess I didn't technically email them. I used the contact form on their website and they sent me an email the next day.

    rockydennis,

    Sorry for the late reply. We have yet to hear anything from ProKennex concerning this racquet. Will let you know if/when we do.

    FYI to others:

    TW Europe expects to have this racquet available around the start of April. Hoping our TW isn't too far behind.

    Come on, JGads. Order one from Italy. You know you want it.

    I'm getting itchy, true. But not quite an 'order-from-italy' itch quite yet.

    BTW, does anyone know what PK's connection to Italy is?

    PK is a Taiwanese company that has its racquets manufactured in China, right?

    So why does Italy get all the new racquets months before they are released in other parts of the world?

    A little shop over here in Singapore now has stock of this. Someone just bought two. If the price is right I'm eager to get one myself. I haven't heard much about the QS though.

    I asked Pro Kennex this on their Facebook page about 3 weeks ago and they have yet to reply. Customer service is lacking for sure but I can't wait to try this stick.

    JGads,

    Sorry to report bad news but we have heard nothing from our end on the availability of this racquet.

    TW stocks their Q15 & Q30 but no Qtour?
    BOOOO!!!! What's up with PK and their lack of communication with one of America's largest Tennis Retailers?
    That doesn't give much comfort to us consumers.
    I hope PK picks up the ball soon with the American market. I'm a current and long time user of their rackets but might have to change in the future due to their lack of communication to the American distributers and consumers.
    Too bad because they actually make good rackets, but bad everything else.

    Also, currently there are 1350 views to this post.
    So, there is an American interest in this racket PK.

    tennisinoc,

    If the racquet was available to us, we would carry it. Unfortunately, it is out of our hands. I will do my best to keep you updated.

    I know it's out of your hands. That's why I was stating how horrible PK's communication is with retailers like TW. Especially when you guys have been selling their products for a long time.

    TW: I also see a new Black Ace Mid on TW Europe. Do you guys know if it's the same stick/new paintjob (per a lot of PK sticks in the last couple years) or if it's actually a different stick? And is this something you guys plan on stocking at some point or is it a Euro exclusive?

    Btw, Brittany, your frequent updates or responses to us pesky PK fans, even if the news is no news, are very much appreciated. Keep up the great work.

    Good news Pro Kennex fans!

    Just talked to our buyer and it looks like we will be getting in the Pro Kennex racquets early June. More information to follow!


    Thanks,

    Any updates? I too am interested in this. I find the Ki5 lacking as a players frame, and the Ki5PSE is too heavy for me. This seems to fall nicely in between.

    Loose translation: "stick" like a Black Ace, but comfortable like a Kinetic.

    I would say this is a must have frame for TW. My shoulder and elbow say so :)

    PK says it will hit mid-May. When can you start taking preorders?

    ^^ you're not paying attention; PK doesn't reckon time like the rest of the world. Their website is typically about a year out of date.

    Absolutely. I love their racquets but PK is on 'island time'.

    I email TW asking this very same question a couple of days ago and they told me it will be available late May/beginning of June.

    Apparently they have the frames already but are not saying anything, told me to "keep checking". No preorders either.

    And only hours after I placed an order (not for this, had no idea it was now ready). When will the demo be ready?

    Demos should be ready in around 2-3 weeks.

    I believe it is the same paintjob as the European version and the specs should be the same.

    TW, when can we expect a review? You've already sold out several times but we still want to know what you think of it :)

    Danix,

    We haven't forgotten about it! The video is being shot next week and should be up shortly there after. The written is already in the editing process and should follow the same timeline.
