anyone tried these 2 racquets? how do you compare them?
i am looking for a solid, stable racquet and have narrowed down to these 2.
I am currently using the organix 10 295 and find it a bit too light and lack plow through.

thanks

I've used all three of those racquets. I'd recommend that you go with the X10 325, if you like the Volkl Organix feel.

TW review says the VCore is pretty powerful for a 95 inch frame. One of the playtesters, Granville, loved it. Did you watch the video review?
Ive read that it is pretty maneuvarable for a players racket.

I've found the X10 325 to be more stable and more maneuverable than the Yonex 95D, FWIW.

My S&V game was much better with the Yonex. Great kick serves and penetrating volleys.

My return of serves and defensive shots are much better with the Volkl. It allows me to stay in the point better.

Comfort is where the Volkl has a decisive advantage. For a guy with a sensitive arm, one match with the VCore 95D was more than enough to irritate the elbow badly (and it was strung with a multi!).

Lead at 3 and 9 on your X295. Some lead in the throat, as well and/or in the handle to balance. The X10-295 takes to modification and adjustment quite easily. You can get the plow and stability of the X325, but on your terms of where the weight is distributed. If you have already leaded or don't want to lead the X295, then maybe the Organix isn't the stick for you.

Wow, elbow problem with a Yonex. Cant imagine what could happen to your elbow if you play with a Babolat Pure Drive or Aero.

I actually got my first case of tennis elbow from a Yonex (the RDX 300 to be exact). Little did I know it was almost as stiff as a Pure Drive.

I stay far away from such racquets now.

VCore felt firm but not harsh when I was playing but I felt the pain the next day. It's probably comfortable enough for most people.

Scotus is a bit of a Yonex hater, you have to realise.

We have quite a few Volkls in our house, and they are a great frame. I have tried the X-10 325 but certainly don't rate it in comparison to the V-Core 95D.

For me, the Yonex is more stable, easier on the arm and has more controllable power.

I wonder how you came to this conclusion. Are you sure you're not confusing me with someone else?

FYI I have owned and played with RDX300MP, RDS003, VCon, MP3i and EZone Xi. My latest racquet purchase is Yonex Pro RD 70 Long and am very excited about how this would perform.

BTW the Yonex EZone Xi 98 is far more arm-friendly than the VCore 95D.

I have tried both these sticks and I would say the volkl is much softer feeling but the yonex is quicker through the air. The gripshape is quite different. They both should feel more solid than your x10 295. I think you will have to demo to sort out the nuances. The volkl handle tech is quite comfortable.

Ive demoed both. Honestly Im a volkl guy and not really a yonex guy, but I liked the 95D much more. The volkl was pretty meh to me. Theyre both comfortable, the yonex has more pop and is basically easier to use. Id say do a demo of both side by side and within 30 min you'll probably know which you prefer.

Organix 10 295 is very powerful stick with adding lead to 3, 12, 9 or any position you like to put. You can't tell it how good it is until you use it for a year. I have been using it for over a year now. I added lead at 3, 9, 12. It became most powerful and flex, comfortable raquet so far.

this may sound dumb, but any worries about lead poisoning when you got kids around?

I wont let my kids (4 and under) around my leaded racquets. Mine have a marvelous ability to cut through the incidentals and get right into the danger.

If you're worried about lead, there are other tapes you can use.

Magnetic tape, aluminum tape, and carbon tape come to mind.

You can cover lead tape with clear plastic tape to protect children as people above mentioned. It is very simple job.
