We are getting new Angell K7 racquets in 2021. Besides new paint and plus length models, there is also a new K7 Cyan racquet.
The Angell K7 Racquets 2021 are available to buy right now at Angell Tennis. There are three models: K7 Red, K7 Lime, and K7 Cyan. They all come with plus-length 27.5 models. The K7 Cyan also comes in a lighter, LT version.
I have reviewed both the K7 Red and Lime favorably and really rate those racquets high for comfort, feel, and performance. They are both racquets I could happily play a tournament match with. But since those racquets are 98 sq inches (16×19 and 18×20), it's nice to see the K7 family grow with the addition of 100 sq inch racquets Cyan and Cyan LT.
If the Cyan racquets play as well as the Lime and Red, I think they could be an interesting competitor to other arm-friendly and modern racquets like the HEAD Gravity and Wilson Clash.

You can find the specs of the Angell K7 Cyan racquets below. If you want to check out the specs of the Angell K7 Red or Lime, my reviews are here: K7 Red, K7 Lime, and you can find more info on the Angell Tennis website.
What I liked about the Angell K7 series of racquets is the comfortable feel, which still allows you a decent connection with the ball. I hope this feeling persists in the Cyan models.
The marketing lingo says:
Constructed from a unique Aramid and Carbon fiber matrix, the K7 CYAN LT offers easy access to spin with super fast racket head speed. As the material of choice for most bulletproof protection products, Aramid fibers provide all the dampening and shock absorption needed, whilst the high modulus carbon delivers the abundance of power that all Angell frames are renowned for.
I am keen to see if this holds true and take the Angell K7 Cyan for a spin.
For the past two years I have been using K7 Reds which Paul modified for me by adding silicone to the handles. I then matched them to a similar spec to Andy Murray’s Head rackets.
I am very happy with them but still couldn’t resist the new models. I have a K7 Lime XL and a K7 Cyan XL arriving Friday!
With a 67 RA doesn’t look like to be in the same category as Clash or Gravity…
Angell quotes RA unstrung which is about 4-5 pts higher than most companies. I own a few TC100 with a 70RA and they feel as though they are 65RA
Clash, Head gravity and my own racquet pro kennex black ace 300 are little bit too soft and muted in my opinion. Had the k7 red. Superb in terms of feel, spin, comfort… Just a tad more stability and firmnes and it would be perfect. So cant wait for k7 cayn review. And very nice reviews tennisnerd. Thanks. Regards, Dean
Paul – what are your initial thoughts on the K7 Cyan XL. I currently have a TC105, but it’s not as maneuverable as I would like for quick volleys and my elbow has started to protest a bit at 70RA strung. I am hoping it has less power than the ASL3.
I purchased the K7 Cyan (I had Paul pick out a heavier racquet, so that the swing weight was spot on as my TC 105) and had it strung with Wilson hybrid string spin effect. I have hit with both this racquet and a Wilson Clash 100 strung with a hybrid of Luxilon ALU Power 125 and Wilson Sensation, both at 55 lbs. They actually play very similar despite a 126 SW versus 112 SW. Both are arm friendly, spin friendly and touch at the net.
However, the K7 Cyan is a little more stable and a little more top spin.
