TENNIS.com Review
By Bill Gray and Bruce Levine on December 07, 2009

Think of the [K] Zen as a transitional stick. If you’re a junior moving from an entry-level frame to something more competitive, this is definitely a racquet to try. Or if you’re an older player who can’t quite handle the demands of an advanced stick anymore, you’ll find a lot to like here. The head size, which is slightly bigger than mid-plus, gives the [K] Zen plenty of pop and a good-size sweet spot. It’s also more than 11 ounces, which not only beefs up the racquet’s stability but also requires the user to have a fairly full swing to get the ball moving. Still, the [K] Zen is head light, so it’s not cumbersome at net. Wilson’s new [K] Factor technology adds more nanofibers to strengthen the frame, plus there are slight structural modifications around the racquet’s throat that are designed to enhance stability and comfort. Besides a few minor complaints about less-than-perfect control, playtesters liked the [K] Zen’s relatively easy power and playability.

Bottom Line: This is a great option for serious weekend warriors looking for a racquet that doesn’t throw all control out the window.
