    Good stick, bad stick?

    I'm primarily a baseliner, full swing on groundstrokes, hit with spin kinda guy.
    Thanks in advance.

    I used the 16x19 for a while, not great but good, plays a little light and a bit unstable perhaps; it's worth hitting the gym to get in shape for the 10 VE MP, which is just a bit heavier but a world better, or slap some lead on a BB10.

    I think it's a great racquet, just too stiff for me. I played great with it for about 3 sets and then suffered with TE for the next 2 weeks. I will admit that I get TE quite easily but I think a few others have said similar things. Also, it doesn't have the typical Volkl feel or comfort although some guys do play with it and like it. I think it's being discontinued.

    Not one of Volkl's finer efforts I dont think. But it would depend on what frame you are used to. If coming from a racquet lacking feel which is stiff and of similar specs you may like it, as it's stiff and solid and stable <as in big sweetspot>. If you tell folks what you have been using and what you like and dont like about it, there would be a reference point to help you from.

    I recently picked up one of these and it's a decent stick with good power. I currently use the Tour 10 VE MP which I think has better control. The Tour 9 swings easier, but I'm sticking with the T10 VE MP.
