The Kinetic frames can really help with TE, if your TE is the result of year's of continuous pounding from tennis and the like. In this case you might see a marked improvement. If the TE arose from bad technique and you don't change, not so much.
I always encourage PK newbies to buy a used 5 or 7 series frame and try it before jumping all in. You can usually find them for about half the retail price. Be careful though as the 5 and 7 frames have a tendency to develop hairline frame cracks when used by hard hitters. I cracked only 3 frames in my 35+ years of tennis and 2 of them were a 5g and a Ki5.
