    The 10 series racquets are great for that ....

    Come to think of it, any racquet is great for that so long as you have the speed to reach the net quickly, and you have accurate and consistent volleys.

    Dancevic is having good luck with the Tour 10 MP Gen 2...or at least i think that's the volkl he's using.

    IMHO, C-10 Pro is best Volkl for serve/volley.

    i am sure it's not the T10G2.

    my current T10mid serves much better than G2

    I liked the T10VE mid for s/v play.

    Tour10 Gen2 or DNX10 Mid

    :grin: I like both the Tour10 Gen 2 and the DNX10 mid for serve and volley. Both racquets provide options for spin or bringing the heat. They are great volleying sticks, especially after getting a weak return set up by a good serve.

    Try the DNX 10 mid. The 16x19 pattern allows you to spin and kick the ball to buy you some time to get to the net. The pattern is also dense enough to maintain volleying control. The midsize, uncapped (compared to the Tour 10 VE mid) DNX also allows better mobility for net play.

    I love my Volkl BB10's. I can rip the serves (with control) and then stick my volleys. Add some natural gut and you'll be in heaven. I briefly tried some of the older DNX models but never found a liking for them.

    I've heard that the BB10 is the oddball, black sheep of the Volkl line since it doesn't play like most other Volkls - but hey..., it works for me.

    I prefer the C10 Pro Tour or the C10 Comp. I have better volleys and serves with these two. The frame seems sturdier at the net also.
