    They haven't been released anywhere yet - I was just lucky enough to get hold of one of the test rackets after some testing at the AE2012.

    I'm not surprised - I didn't think it was going to be released to late summer here - it was very expensive though.

    Default Carlton Kinesis Released!+Micro Grommet Question+Reviews?

    Hmm might pick one up this summer...I'll have to ship international =/ Expensive base price too.
    Btw what happens if the micro grommets crack? Can they be replaced by normal grommets or are they proprietary?

    Yeah, its an even balanced racket with similar weight to the VTT. I have the Razor 1.1 and VTT. I'm way more comfortable with the VTT but like the power of v1.1

    So I'm hoping this racket will get me the best of both worlds.

    RACKET SPECIFICATIONS


    Weight (grams): 95 g
    Length: 670 mm
    Balance: 298 mm from handle - Medium
    Flex: 57 mm - Medium-Stiff
    Construction: Japanese HM Carbon






    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: CARLTON KINESIS BADMINTON RACKET

    + Circometric Headshape
    + Vortex Geometry

    + Pro V12 Grommets
    + Xtreme Tension Frame

    + Bi-Axial Dynamics
    + Advanced Power Generation

    + Micro Grommet System
    + Ultra-Lite Cap

    + Japanese HM Carbon




    The Carlton Kinesis Badminton Racket is designed for players to attack with high force using a short swing. The design makes the racket light and maneuverability this allows greater control in rapid fast flat exchanges and when recovering fast smashes. Overhead shots are effortless due to the balanced feel of the racket and the maneuverability allows quick deception.

    Kinesis - 90 degree twists at 2, 5, 7 and 10 o'clock to reduce weight and acts to increase swing speed witht the Vortex Geometry.

    Vortex Geometry - A new design of the racket head to help improve the aerodynamics of the racket throughout the whole swing. Most rackets are designed with excellent aerodynamics in a single plane, the Vortex System is designed to have excellent speed through a whole rotation.

    Circometric - An oval shaped head that provides better aerodynamics than an isometric head allowing faster swing speeds. The more compact hitting area gives extra feel and touch on the shuttle.

    Xtreme Tension Frame - Attention to detail and high quality materials ensure that Carlton rackets are safe to be strung at higher tensions.

    Micro Grommet System - Smaller tapered edge grommets that sit in a groove in the frame reduce aerodynamic drag by allowing the string to sit closer to the frame.

    Pro V12 Grommets - Small flexible grommets that allow greater string movement to increase the power the centre crosses can generate.

    Japanese HM Carbon - A Hi Modulus top of the range carbon that is a consistent high quality providing durability and stability.

    Ultra-Lite Cap - A re-design of the traditional cap to reduce the racket weight as much as possible. The new cap is perforated to reduce its weight by 28%.

    The racket comes strung in Carlton Xelerate X67. The tension range for this racket is 18-28lbs.
