    Anyone have thoughts/opinions comparing the Kinetic Classics 5G and 7G vs the new versions - Ionic ki 5 and ki 5x, respectively ??

    I demo'd the 7G and the KI 5x today. I liked both racquet's. The 7G had a much more "muted" feel which was really easy on my elbow. The KI 5X had a little more "pop" that you would be used to from other racquets. I noticed that my shots with the 7G were a little more focused and accurate whereas with the KI 5X I mishit a lot (which was weird, my fault not the racquet's). My serve was better with the KI 5X but I think overall I liked the 7G better.

    I thought this was going to be my last demo run but I think not. I liked the 7G and hit well with it, but I think I need to try a few more racquet's first before I buy. I want to give the 5G a try too to see how well I hit with the standard length.
