K Zen, thoughts

Anybody have any experience with this racquet? Like it? What's the differnce between this and say the K Blade 98?


What are some comparable racquets to it? Jazar?

Re: K Zen, thoughts

I bought one about 2 weeks ago, because I got it on sale brand new. I like it. Gives decent pop on the serve, and you can control you groundies pretty well. I'd reccomend it if you can get a decent deal on it.

Re: K Zen, thoughts

the k zen is like a more powerful, more forgiving pure drive. the k blade, by comparison, is a more control oriented and all round racket

Jazar, is there a real difference between the Zen and Zen Team?

there is about a 30 gram weight difference, which is very noticeable

Re: K Zen, thoughts

Thanks Jazar. Is the Head Microgel Monster a comparable racquet to the K Zen?

Re: K Zen, thoughts

Jazar, I pulled the trigger on a K Zen Team. Any recommendations for string? I hit the ball somewhat flat (I'm old school)and prefer control over power. Also, what side should I err on for tension? Thanks!
