Hi guys a question about Volkl brand.
My buddy brought an old raquect from home named "Volkl Tournament Pro" raquet. He has not used it in a few years since the stings popped and he switched to Prince racquets.
I picked it up and it felt heavy.... must be in 12-14oz zone.
The head felt small, and the racquet does not say the size, but it felt like 85-90
The Color is red and it says Performance Pro on the side. It seems to be 18x16 as it says on the side.

anyone know this racquet? i could not find ANYTHING online.
Is it even worth re-stringing? the org strings on it were Babolats (not sure what kind.) But they still have the Volkl logo painted.

any feeback, i would love the see the specs of this racquet.

Big Boris doesn't answer the phone anymore...

Although not the most knowledgeable about Volkl history (and doesn't even play tennis), this lady will find your answers:
