    I am in my sixties, with more than half a century of tennis behind me. I did not change much my way of playing since the good old wood era. Flat forehand and one-hand slice backhand. Just a little spin when I need it to make my forehand fall inside the court. I have a TC95, the Sword, a TC100, the Bat, and now also a K7, the Whip. All of them strung with Head Velocity, a multifilament, to avoid shoulder pains.
    The K7 is very different form the other two ones, more flexible and maneuvrable. It took at least one month to get familiar with it. At first I did not feel at ease, I felt I was not able to transmit my energy to the ball as with the TCxx. The K7 felt lighter, in spite of a minimal weigh difference, 305 vs 310. Then I added one gram of lead at 3, 6, 9, 12 hours and something changed. I was able to hit the ball with power and control, finding also a good precision. I appreciate the K7 for several reasons.
    It has a large sweet spot, that helps me a lot in serve returns.
    Its maneuvrability helps me when I hit the ball in a non-optimal position, something that happens more and more frequently. Using my wrist I can adjust the movement in order to hit more efficiently.
    My second serve has improved. I am able to produce more rotations, to the point that this week one of my opponents had to suddenly change from backhand to forehand to return it. I noticed an increase in rotations also in my other shots, which makes me quite happy.
    Flat shots are ok, but they have to be produced differently than with the TCxx. Less shoulder, more wrist. This racquet wants a fast swing.
    At net it is excellent, it moves fast, it has touch and sensibility.
    It is a very comfortable frame, excellent for my shoulder. This week I served in long games without troubles of any kind.
    At present it is my favorite racquet.

    I’m a 4.5 all court player from the US and I use midweight frames to accommodate my short backswing and a quick swing speed. Maneuverability is key for me, so I decided to add the K7 to my list of new potential racquets after reading the early reviews. I have been using the WPS LS with weight to the throat for 2 years and felt uninspired with the feel despite good results. I bought the Ultra CV 100 and the K7 among 3 other racquets, but these were my two finalists. In the end the decision was the K7 for a few reasons. Spin is better than any other racquet I have played with. My hook on the FH and OHBH are pivotal at my level, as well as my sliding serve with a low bounce. The K7 plays to my strengths on these shots as well as a stable volley. I needed the vibration dampener to make this work, despite working with a good string (technifibre NRG 17 @53#). I felt better placement with the K7 than the Ultra despite the same 100 sq in headsize. There’s certainly better feel with the K7 than any other racquet I’ve played with in the past 2 years. It’s a cushy and forgiving, but empowering as well, letting me plow through the shots with confidence and direction. I’ll be ordering another when they restock.

    I suspect this time Paul has had to make a deal with the devil to get this amazing feel. Just hope he didn’t have to give up his first born. K7 is a departure from the foam filled lineup of frames that play exceptionally well. I have tried many so was intrigued when the K7 came out with no foam. The Kevlar or Aramid added in his magic potent blend for this frame seems to generate a frame absent vibration. Yet, a really connected feel which provided this sensation that you can measure your shots.

    Grounds strokes are buttery, versatile and pretty good mixture of power and control. Frame is really good at top spin or hitting more flat, you control what you want to produce. My OHBH enjoyed this frame whether I’m driving or whipping top spin. The frame in stock form was too light for me and I needed to bump up the SW. Threw on a leather grip and 4.2g of weight layered at 12 and it just gave me more on serve. Really nice spin and kick serves. Flatter serves are also quite good with good precision. Very maneuverable racquet so quick reactions at net are not a problem.

    This is a racquet you can pick up first time and play effectively with. I suspect a variety of player levels will enjoy this racquet. And did I mention the comfort? You can hit for two hours and your arm feels like you haven’t hit at all that day. Very nice and unique frame with good looks to boot.

    This is one awesome frame from Angell. It is a very comfortable racquet, the addition of kevlar makes it as comfortable as the foam filled version but without the extra swingweight. The result is a very fast swinging, very maneuverable frame that feels really smooth even on off center hits.

    The power is there and I had absolutely no problem hitting deep even in stock form. Even if pushed around just a flick of the wrist is enough to get you out of a tough situation. The sweetspot to me felt generous and the string bed didn’t seem to have any hot spot like some other frames where you have a huge drop in power outside of the sweetspot.

    The lower weight, head light balance and open string pattern makes it a very easy frame to swing and will help create a ton of spin. The amount of spin is for me, amongst the best frame I ever tried. I could see the ball jumping up off the court. But the launch angle is not high like some of the “spin pattern” frames you see on the market, so you keep a good control of the direction of the ball. This racquet does it all.

    This is a great modern frame that will give power and spin while retaining a comfortable old school feel. The best of both world.
    I used wilson natural gut mains/Gamma poly crosses at 50lbs.
