Overall, I think the Ki 5x is a great stick. The length gives you bigger serves, a little more power, and a little more stability at the expense of mobility versus the Ki 5. It's a pretty even trade, and which one is better depends on your style.
This is one of them sticks that I feel has all the great qualities of a PDGT+ Roddick w/o the arm pain and a tad more control. one of the hidden gems. Really surprised it's been out since 2006 and not many have noticed. I thought this stick has better paint job quality then the original 7g. It's very hard to find glossy surface PJ's now that is harder to chip.
