It also felt just as comfortable as the Volkl Organix 10 295, which for me is the among the plushest feeling lightweights I have hit with. The Ki 315 was a bit of a let down. It felt a little pingy compared the Q5 (and my own 5G/7G's), despite the Ki5's lower stiffness rating. Q5 295 is must-demo for anyone looking for a racquet in this weight range.
For some reason, it seems that nobody ever thinks the Ki 5 is that comfortable, but after they use it for a few days they notice their elbow feels better. Maybe that's just how the Ionic Kinetic system works in that racquet?
