    Hey guys,

    I'm a super newb. to playing tennis and I just picked up a Wilson (K) Factor Seven from someone to start playing with.
    After I got the stick I just wanted to find out more about the specs but I was unable to find anything about it except that it is a racquet that's made for big sporting good stores?

    So, does anyone know anything about the K-Seven and if it's a decent racquet? Stores said the original price for this stick is $299.99!!!:shock:

    Thanks in advance guys, and looking forward to playing and learning more about the game of tennis! I love it so far!

    Hey welcome to tennis talk. I'm pretty new my self. first of all the (K) Seven is only $89.99 at ***** Sporting goods. but before today, i never heard of it before so i don't really know about it. It is pre-strung so it is a beginner's frame. For a beginner i would recommend a Oversize head (a head larger to 105 sq inches ), head heavy, and a light weight racquet (<10 ounces). Other than that its the price that should affect you the most. Have fun playing tennis, its a great sport! :)

    Hello there. Ok here is the deal. The Wilson (k) Seven has a headsize of 101sq.in So I'm not really sure if it's a beginner's racquet although it comes pre strung. I bought a Wilson (k) Blade Team 104, and it came pre strung with Wilson Sensation strings at 58lbs. Trust me on this one the (k) Blade Team is NOT a beginner's racquet. You might want to check the Wilson (k)Zero. It fits the beginner's description for a racquet. Oversize, light, and head heavy. But, this one is very different! I play with it and I love it, and I 'm a 3.5! Also there are some 4.0's and 4.5's who use the (k)Zero and they love it. So go figure. The (k) Zero is available for $99.95. A realy good deal!

    Eh...no! And don't believe everything you read on the forum. There are many false info getting pass around; it's sad!! Anyways, it's actually very confusing about this frame.

    I have one, just for kicks and strung w/Gaucho gut in main, Prince Tour on cross.

    On the card, it states:
    Headsize 101
    Weight 9.3oz
    Length 27"
    Balance 2pts HL


    In the throat, it states:
    Headsize 101
    Weight 9.0oz
    Length 27"
    Balance 1pts HL


    On the handle shrink wrap, it states:
    Headsize 103

    K Factor 7

    I own and currently use the K Factor 7

    .It is 101 Sq. Inches
    .It has a head balance of 1 pt. HL
    .It is not currently on Tennis Warehouse Online Site
    .It is a fair racket with medium swing speed
    .Weighing from 9.0 ounces to 9.3 ounces

    I am on the varsity team of my High School and it is a good transition racket.
    This racket is not for beginners, but at the same time, it is for some one who can not handle a smaller head size.

    The racket performance is fair

    I play fine with it, using co-poly strings, I am able to use top spin, and control

    This racket I would recommend to players that have been mastered a over sized racket, and would like to move a step up

    Leave a question, and I would be glad to answer it -Dom

    sounds like a decent beginner-intermediate racquet. I personally am very wary when it comes to lighter racquets as they are harsher on the arm. A light, stiff, head heavy frame will most often cause more arm problems than a heavy, flexible, headlight frame.

    Maybe add a little bit of weight to the handle and some leadtape to the top, make it weigh ~10.5 to 11oz and I think it would play very well and be more arm friendly.
