Yes, the pallet attaches directly to the hairpin via double sided tape. All pallets will fit the hairpin. Good luck!
I am using Volkl Cyclone 16 Black at 57lbs.
Well I tried to switch back to my Prince racquets because the grip felt better. After going back and forth while playing I came to the conclusion none of them played anywhere near as well as the C10 Pro. The more I use it the more used to the grip I get.
I won't be leaving the club. In fact, since I like the cosmetics so much and heard they might change, I bought another one. I have sold off two of my Prince racquets and now selling three more.
Rabbit- Great find! I picked up a used extended length "Fish Scale" because of all the raves about them. I was surprised to see they weighed in at 11.4ozs? I recently purchased the new Volkl- Super G10 and a used Organix 10 with white writing on the throat and they came in at 12.0 ozs. Great racquets!!! I have most iterations of the Head- Prestige Mp's but, love everything about the Volkl's!!! What are your thought's on the fish scale version? Which version do you favor? Thanks...........
Yeah, the C10X was lighter than the regular length. A friend of mine used it and loved it. At one time, Volkl also made an OS version. It was 110 sq in and 16X19. It produced awesome spin. It was the same weight as the extended frame.
I've been using the fish scales exclusively since I picked those up. To me, there is a tad more flex in them. But, I think my favorites to date may be the 2008 model which were all black. I'm fixing to switch back to them for the fall/winter and indoors.
Rabbit- Thanks for your fast reply!!! Do you happen to have a photo of the 2008 model? Tried to locate one on the internet to no avail? So many paint jobs. Thanks.....
The ones on the right are the 2008 model. Basically it's the bumblebee reversed.
I got them out and played with them this weekend. I'll have to say that I was wrong, I much prefer the feel of the fish scale model. It seems to have more flex overall.
Same findings here - my fishscale and bumblebee C10's have just a little more of the plushness going on, but they also have more mileage on them compared with my newer versions. I have one from the '08 generation and two of the current "yellow tops".
I should also point out that a couple of my older C10's are a bit more hefty than my newer trio. The extra stability along with the C10's trademark cushy ride give me a boatload of arm-friendliness, but also a little more racquet than I want for quick handling in a nasty doubles setting.
One of my old bumblebees is cracked and finally starting to deform, so I'm in the middle of taking off its grip pallets to swap onto my '08 frame, which has a smaller grip than my favorite 4 5/8". Hoping to trade the grips instead of relying on a shrink wrap to build it up, but we'll see.
Do you need 4 5/8 pallets? I have some you are welcome to. You can email me your address and I'll get some out to you.
I think plush describes the fish scale to a tee. While yours may have some age on them, trust me, that's not all there is to the feel. I bought 2 brand new, still in plastic fish scales off **** and they are like that brand new.
I hate using shrink wraps as well. They never feel right and they dampen ( to me) the edges to where I have trouble adjusting my hand to find the right edge to change to. I use 5/8" grip size too. Finding the 5/8" pallets is not easy to do. I wish I had picked up a couple more 5/8" pallet sets when they were more readily available. I use the C10 Pro Tour version. I have tried hundreds ( yes I really have over the many years I have been using the C10 PT's) and nothing feels or plays like they do. Maybe I should retry the standard C10 Pro again. I just thought , for me, the C10 Pro Tour had better control, court depth,and net feel when I compared them side by side for a while. I also did have the C10 Pro OS for a while. Even though it had a lot bigger head it still played really nice and was great for social doubles.
should you need 4 5/8 pallets all you need do is ask!
