    Lower scores on serve than one would expect.

    Main problem with this very hefty stick seems to be not enough HL balance to lower the SW more. I might get one to keep, but as Spencer said, I also find myself spraying groudstrokes all the time when using too heavy a stick.

    Nice work, TW. A very fair assessment of the KPS88's strengths and weaknesses, I thought.

    It was fun to watch the video review too -- nice to see Granville's smoooth strokes and easy style.


    Edit:

    Are TW Prof's test results, mentioned in the intro, gathered in any one place? (I know he's made a number of posts in the KPS88 threads.)

    Good review, I enjoyed seeing the KPS in action! Comments were on par with everyones. I would def like to try one out just to have some fun, alot like with the K90. Nothing compares to a hit with one of those beasts!

    so basically they are saying that the k90 and ps85 are superior racquets to the kstaff88. All hail the k90 and ps85.This makes me feel even better about my purchase

    The link (in form of an image) to the video is not obvious. The common theme is that they are ready for it because the racket is too demanding or heavy and may require some time to get use to it.

    I think the review basically says the K90 is better.
