    Hi, I am considering buying a ProKennex Kinetic SMi 10g racquet, but I don't know anything about it, and can't find anything, even on google. Can someone please tell me what this racquet is like? I'm probably looking for a tweener's racquet as I've only been playing tennis for a year with a recreational racquet. Is this anything like the 5g or 7g? I've been looking for one of those. Thanks for your help.

    Oh, if anyone can suggest another tweener racquet (price limit of $50-60, the cheaper the better) to use, please go ahead. I usually look through older racquets because they are cheaper.

    My 10g is a 110" head, 27" long traditional racquet, not a tweener. Its an old school stick from back in the day

    Btw, believe its the 1st Kinetic racquet and many were sold on **** new. Now, it should be in a museum. OS, 27" long players stick, don't make them anymore

    Taken from the old (1996) ProKennex website:
    ===
    KINETIC 10G AND 10G OS: The award-winning benefits of Pro Kennex Kinetic System Technology " a 15% larger power zone, 20% shock reduction, and 43% better vibration damping " in a mid-plus model (The Kinetic 10g) and in an oversize model (The Kinetic 10g OS)

    HEADSIZE: 100 sq inches 110 sq inches (OS)
    WEIGHT: 11.2 -11.4 ounces unstrung
    BALANCE: Headlight
    MATERIAL: 80% ultra-high modulus graphite and 20% fiberglass with Kinetic System Technology
    ===

    I bought a couple of them (7) half a year ago, very cheap on the auction site we all know. It's not a bad frame, but I just couldn't get used to its large head (110). A very comfortable hit but I did string them quite low so I don't know how they are at higher tension. Sold them all afterwards.
