i was using dnx8 for a month and really like it, except for the stiffness.. since my elbows cannot take it, i switched to dnx9...
love everything about dnx9 too.... but after two hours of playing with dnx9, i started to feel it is kind of heavy for me to go on....
found out dnx 10 295g has the similar weight to dnx8, maybe this is the right one for me????????
anyone have try the dnx10 295g????? how is it????? does it have the similar swing weight as 8 and 9??????????????
please help

Tried it about 18 months ago. All that I got out of it was a very sore wrist and it was strung at about 55lbs with natural gut!!! Coach at the tennis club uses it and says that one day it is going to go over the fence on the full. He's switching to the DNX 8 or 9

i think he means that the coach doesnt like the racquet and is going to throw the racquet over the fence, not hiting balls if that is what you meant. If not i just made a fool of myself.

The DNX10light is indeed very low powered. But because it's light and has low SW, you can actually get some really fast swings. It's much more conforable than the 9, bigger sweetspot, more control and vibrate less. Better overall from the baseline, but less rewarding than the 9. They're completely different beasts.

If you have any question... please ask !

BTW, I've been playing with 9 & 10light for at least 6 months

No you did not make a fool of yourself, that's exactly what I meant. I did not realise that my comments could have been misinterpreted. Coach says that it is too narrow in the beam, has absolutely no feel and hits like a piece of s**t. All comments that I agreed with. I found the feel dead and it just vibrated so much. I demoed it from a sports store and was glad to be able to take it back. Spoke to one of the guys there a couple of weeks later and he said that he was not impressed with it either. However one of the really top juniors at the club uses it and he thinks that it is one great racquet. The way that he hits the ball with it is a delight to watch but for me it was bad news.

thank you for your input... as i am looking for the weight of dnx8 and the stiffness, control of dnx9. i thought the dnx light might be the one....
may i know what kind of string and tensions you are using in 9 and 10 295g???
how about the serve and the volley between this two?????
i am currently using gut/multi hybrid at 53/55lbs, and thinking to buy dnx 10 295g with full klip legend at 54 lbs, since it is lower powered than 9, what do you think??

I almost only use mono on my racquet : 24 kg main / 26 crosses (JayCee's). I'm about to drop the tension anyway.

It's really flexible indeed, but I like that feeling

btw, I may have another 10light for sale...

the problem i have is in our parts of country, they only sell racquets and no demo service.... so, it is either we buy it or not.... that is why, advise from the forum is so important for us

i finally decide to take a chance, and bought the dnx10 295g.... put on klip legend at 54 lbs.. it feels light at the first glance... took it to the court and hit with my coach for an hour...i have to say i love this racquet, it moves much easier than dnx8 and 9...love the fh and bh, serve is ok, volley is more solid with dnx9. love the control of 10, is low in power,and i can swing much faster in 10 than 8..

So do I! A guy was supposed to measure it with his RDC, but I've never heard from him again :-(

I use Poly Plasma @ 53/57
