View Full Version : First hit with the V1 catapult Oversize

What a nice surprise this racquet was. I have to say the control was alot better than I expected from the racquet. I cant say I really felt the catapults but of course I havent hit with a V1 without them. I felt the catapult the most when I strung the racquet. Which by the way was done with SPPP 1.18 at 50 lbs.
The combination of maneuverability, power, control and stability in this frame is among the best I have experienced. Comfort level was quite high too. Perhaps not as comfortable as my PK ki 15 with lead that weighs about the same (313 g with overgrip and dampener). But the V1 outshines the ki 15 in the control department by a mile.
I see now why these racquets are said to be some of the best all round racquets around. Could really suit anybody.
Now I feel I have to try some of the other V1 aswell.

Anyone who tried this racquet and didnt like it?

I just saw a strange thing. My two racquets are identical except for one thing. One racquet says 107 sq in and the other says 110 sq in. Weird?

Can someone comment on the catapult V1 OS compared to the DNX V1 OS.
I dont know if it is the catapult but today I tried it with a soft multi but it somehow still felt like a poly string.
Is the catapult supposed to be good for the arm?
