The frame design features Wilson's "Karophite Black" material, which increases the strength of the frame graphite. Like many of the other [K] models, the Pro Open has larger-than-usual grommet holes, which allow the strings to flex more, which in turn slightly increases contact time with the ball, power and fluidity of stroke. Wilson suggests this racquet is for more aggressive players.
