I just picked up this Volkl for US$78 brand new today. Wondering if anyone has hit with it before, and I would be particularly interested in comparisons to the DNX10 and/or T10 mid VE!

i'm playing with tour 10 now since it was out, i think i was one of the first :rolleyes: it's a sweet stick, can do it all, but be aware of the fairly high swingweight, don't know about dnx 10 but the mid is low swingweighted but the tour has more power though. i cant tell you about the extended cos i play with the standard but its the same frame so it should play quite the same.

I think the guy has six extended C10s and he's not giving anyone the courtesy of correspondence..

Great question on specs ... there are not much details on the frame, which is why I'm trying to find more info.

This is not a C10 Pro Extended, just a plain Tour 10 X-Tended, length 27.5

I do not have access to a digital scale, but in comparison to my C10 Pro, I'm guessing that the weight is about 325-330gm. Probably about 9-10pts HL. Headsize 98. No other details on SW or stiffness.

Thanks, ericsson. How long has the Tour 10 been out?
