ProKennex Kinetic Pro Spin Pickleball PaddleFrom ProKennex Pickleball comes yet another technology-forward breakthrough in ball control; the Kinetic Pro Spin Paddle takes inspiration from its tennis relatives and features "strings" built into the paddle. While they may not look like the same strings found on tennis racquets, they are certainly derived from the same idea. These "visual strings" are full-length ridges embedded in the paddle and are combined with a Webspun textured surface to boost potential for hitting technical spin shots that force mistakes from your opponents. While adding spin, the ridges also enhance dwell time and work in concert with the Kinetic system ProKennex is known for to spread impact over the face of the paddle and mitigate impact vibrations. The result is a paddle that inspires confidence at the kitchen, and encourages cut shots that bamboozle from deeper in the court.
The Kinetic Pro Spin Paddle shape offers the same 11mm (0.43") thickness as the Ovation and previous ProKennex models, with a slightly shorter and narrower 15.7" overall length and 7.6" width and rectangular head shape that screams control and finesse. With the handle coming in at 5.1" in length, slightly shorter than its Ovation Spin counterpart, the Pro is well-suited to players with ample power who are looking for a slight edge in control that will take them to the next level.
As you expect from ProKennex paddles, the Kinectic Pro Spin arrives with the replaceable Air-O-Guard bumper edge guard (coming soon for this model), a comfort cushion grip wrapped around the 4" circumference handle, and an average weight of 7.6 oz. The high-performance Kinetic Pro Spin will prove to be a paddle you can rely on to help you win big points in big tournaments for years to come.

Paddle feels unbalanced, did not produce the kind of spin i was looking for / did not generate sufficient power for the drives / overall poor performance for the price / will return paddle to your company

So, first of all, I bought the pro spin because I'd heard good things about then Kennex paddles for minimizing impact shock and I'm working on healing a pickleball elbow issue. The paddle definitely absorbs the brunt of impacts. And it still drives and dinks reasonably well. The light weight (which I'm sure helps with elbow injuries) also means that when blocking and dropping the ball just doesn't carry as far as my regular Engage paddle. I've started adding lead tape along the sides to give is a little more oomph and that seems to be helping. The paddle is also really thin compared to my other paddles, which takes some getting use to in order to recalibrate your contact point for sharp slices or heavy top spins. Overall it seems to apply about as much spin as other paddles I've used. To be honest, I really hope it helps me make a full recovery from my pickleball elbow so that I can return to my Engage 6.0 without pain. I'll likely keep it in my quiver for casual games to minimize the stress on my elbow going forward.
