    ProKennex Ki Q+ Tour Pro 315 (2021 model)

    I think it's a good move because you can control your static weight, and if @tim-ay is correct and the difference is just handle weight, then you have room to play there as well and aren't locked into what PK gives you with the 315. And it's still coming in at 6pts hl, which has me curious...

    ProKennex Ki Q+ Tour Pro 315 (2021 model)

    I think I'm probably between 325-330 sw on the BA Pro, but at 330g and 6hl, man does it work. But those specs don't tell it all. How they got a 15.1 TW out of a mid-50s RA is a modern feat. I can find no compromise, so you're right. I really like it even though I can't explain why in particular.

    I did not realize it took that much weight to move balance a half cm on the handle, but that's actually good news to me because that tells me I could reshape the grip (7g on my BA Pro) and, depending on my grip of choice, have essentially the same frame, just a shade lighter than the 315, which...

    So comparing the two Limoncellos, let's just call close enough on balance and swing weight, where are they hiding the extra 15g on the 315? Center (upper handle, throat, lower hoop)?

    The BA Pro will likely not be unseated for me. But I have to hit the 300g espresso/Limoncello. It's close enough for a comparison. It must be done. My gut tells me the 300 is the play because I can dial it in and keep it light. I'm hitting the BA Pro at 330g and 6pts hl, and it's a dream. And...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    When I broke into the sport in '04, there was an older 3.5 who took me under his wing and hit a bunch with me. I'll never forget his black/yellow/white maraca racquet. Ironically, it was the first frame I actually paid attention to. Yep, a 5G.

    I'll send it to PP first, then, @tim-ay, and if you decide by then (who knows when that may be) you must have it, I'm sure PP can forward it on. This one was meant to by a gypsy, obviously.

    ProKennex Ki Q+ Tour Pro 315 (2021 model)

    I'm told, if USPS can be trusted, that this is just the way international packages sometimes work. Multiply that by pandemic issues, and the problem is compounded. I only want to see how the frame feels/responds to know whether to purchase a Limoncello in my grip size. If it shows, I will reach...

    I really wasn't joking about the espresso offer if you can do an L2. But if you go along with this plan, the joke will admittedly be on both of us because the frame is lost, despite what USPS tells me, so this incredible deal (and it truly would be) will never happen. You in?

    Can you imagine him referring to the 'Limoncello' with that Swedish accent? That would be pretty awesome, lol.

    PK KI Black Ace Pro Grommets

    Will TW carry these? I reached out to PK, personally, weeks ago, but nothing. Maybe your connections can uncover more information about the potential availability of these. Thanks.

    No, that would be the Limoncello (see holic thread). Complaint dept.: info at prokennex dot com c/o Lorenzo (and good luck; he's ignoring my BA Pro grommet question).

    I sang that tune alone for some time on the boulevard of broken dreams. My youngest son must have overheard. He took it, but it suits him a little better. Wish they made a 98" version of that in a 16x20.
