    How can I check what my demo racket is strung with? There's no writing on the strings. It's a volkl with (I'm guessing) multi that's black and silver ribbonish...seems pretty durable and decent spin. Is this rip control?

    I can't imagine they would use Rip Control in there demos.

    Mike, you can try calling them and see if they can ask the stringers with they use on the Volkls? Sometimes they know. Did u try looking with a magnifier?

    Which racquet are you demoing?

    I'm assuming you are demoing a Volkl racquet?

    Could it be V-Feel?

    I'm demoing the organix 8 300g. The string is stiffer, but not a poly. It's dark grey with silver twists around it. Hardly any fraying at all after many hours of use. I'm looking all over and there's no print.

    Yes thank you it's definitely v-feel. It's an awesome string, but man it is probably the stiffest multi I've ever used!

    Yeah but it was a good guess because my xv1 demo has power fine in it. Very nice string that's actually quite spin friendly!
