Last night we reserved two courts ( eight players ) and the Volkl rep came with his demo bag and we hit quite a few sticks, let see, of the new Volkls there was the BB, DNX V1 MP, DNX 3,8, and 10, also the Prince O3 white.I hit with the DNX V1 mp, the BB, and the 10 had a 3/4 grip so I passed (rats!) and finally the O3 white.

DVX V1 - light with loads of power and a soft feel, good sweet spot.

BB - more evenly balance and weighted more in the head, good feel and ball control.

O3 white - the racquet I thought I'd like the best, wrong! too muted and dead feeling, average on everything except the serve which was pretty good.

You missed out by not trying the 8! Especially if you liked the V1.

Here in the land of frozen tundra we have many indoor clubs, tennis is more popular in the winter than the summer with numerous indoor leagues etc..I pay 65.oo dollars for the season ( Sept through April ) + court time 18.00 hourly I think..

Vin - Yea, the DNX 8, all the guys were hitting with it, so didn't get the chance, but my buddy liked it so much he had one stringed up today.
