    I am looking for a replacement for my Becker Pro. I love its power, and ball crushing ability, feel at contact, directional control, and serve insanity. Any suggestions for playtests? I really like the unusual soft buttcap, so I guess that primarily leaves me looking at Volkl racquets. Thinking Organix 7(310g), V1 midplus, and Organix 8(300g). Thanks.

    I would start with the Organix 7 310. It is a little crisper, but has great power and feels more stable than it should for its weight. I love that racquet on returns as it comes around quickly and offers great access to pace and spin.

    If you want more control and feel and don't mind a slight drop in power, the V1 Pro is a great stick. It is silky smooth and very comfortable.

    I could never groove with the 8 like I could with the Becker Pro. For whatever reason my control suffered as I found that one a tad too powerful.

    If you decide to look outside of Volkl, I would add the Extremes from Head, Donnay Formula 100 as well as the AeroPro Drive and Pure Drive.

    Hope that helps,
    Chris, TW.
