Pro Kennex Silver Ace 90 Ceramic
 
Does anyone know what the specs for this racquet is?
It's the white and blue version with gray grommets.

Thanks.

I have one here but don't have an electronic scale right now.:( I have played with it, feels similar to the original Silver Ace.

ayuname 07-09-2010 06:40 AM

Yeah, out of all my frames, I loved playing this racquet the most.

Afraid not Bud. It's rounder at the bottom of the head/throat area.
It's close enough to the racquet so I'll take the specs you provided as a general equivalent.

Most of them were right around that weight/balance :)

Yeah I got a scale and it's about 12.1oz unstrung.

One thing I can tell: The SW is very high.

I have one with the curve bridge. The static weight is fine, but the very high SW makes it pretty difficult to play with.

It's a pretty easy and comfortable swing for me. It's not my main racquet anyways. I just really loved the racquet from first swing.

ayuname- is this the racket you're refering to? (This is the "white" paintjob; I believe there is also a "silver" coloured one)-->

Yeah, that's basically the racquet I'm referring to. I'll post pics later.

LOL! It's my main racket now! I have three of these, all in good condition, but not sure if the grommets will last. They are pretty heavy I have to say, my guess is that they are likely to weigh around 370g strung. The sweetspot is quite small so you have to concentrate on your strokes to get the best out of them. The main pluses are comfort and feel, something which you can't really get nowadays with modern rackets. Post your pics for us to see, thanks.

Maybe tomorrow if I remember hahaha.

Yeah, that one. :]

roundiesee 08-09-2010 05:59 AM

Thanks jmk; so it is 340g without the grip; I've always thought mine with a leather grip was 370g, guess not :)

You're welcome.

My stick is cracked but I keep it because of sentimental value.

It's been so long I cannot remember how it plays.

roundiesee 08-09-2010 05:38 PM

To me it plays not unlike a KPS88 but definitely much more comfy; I like the "feel" of the fibreglass and ceramic; however, because it is so heavy, and with a small sweetspot, it is obviously not everyone's cup of tea; if your game is off slightly, you can "suffer" from using this frame. Overall I do like it and I have three, one in very good condition, the other 2 about 7/10. There is a shop which sells them brand new for about 30USD but not sure whether they still stock them

ayuname 08-09-2010 08:41 PM

Love them and one day I will get pictures of them, hahaha.
