View Full Version : Difference in bevel feel on Volkls

08-14-2004, 03:14 PM
First post since this new board format has been introduced... I guess you can call me slow...

Anyway, I have two different Volkls - Tour 9 and Quantum V1, same grip size, same leather overgrip. V1 is 2 1/2 years older. I didn't pay much attention in beginning, but now I notice that I feel bevels better on Tour 9.

Is it due to difference in handle design or could it be wear and tear on V1?

Don?... Fellow volklins?...

A bit of both. The Quantum V1 didn't come with the pallet system, instead a soft foam type handle was used for the Quantum V1. The Tour 9 on the other hand has Volkl's pallet system for the handle. As the more you use the Quantum V1, and Quantum 10 as well, the handle squshes down, and can cahnge the shape and feel of it.

Thomas, thanks for a response. Are you still using Volkls these days, or a little bit of everything?
