Although my MG Radical is a comfort racket, the Kinetic 7G gets the nod in comfort. That's a big deal for me. I'm a senior player with shoulder issues. I need to have the best possible shoulder-friendly racket, string, and tension combination that keeps me on the courts.

The 7G may not be the panacea for my shoulder issues, but I feel I have to give it a try.

Best wishes,

Remember when tennis rackets were wood and balls were white?

Even though I recommended the 7G in my multis thread to you, I did not realize you were having shoulder issues. The extended length is going to put more stress on your shoulder. Maybe the 5G is a better option for you health wise.
