    I haven't come across a C8 Comp, so no pics or specs available. Still a decent pile of Comps though, right?[​IMG]

    Incomparable! Almost beyond comprehesion! You definitely didn't compromise when you compiled them! :)

    Seriously, great racquets. Thanks for posting!

    Dino/Anyone

    is there another version of the C7 Comp? I have one with more yellow in the colourway than yours Dino, and from the looks of it, possibly a slightly thinner beam as well. It's no yellow/black C7 Pro - definitely a Comp version, but doesn't seem to match yours.

    Whoaaaaaaa Dino! Thank you so much,i really enjoy every single pic. The C7 Comp resemble to the Classic 7 Pro, 18 x 20 pattern, and pretty similar paint-job, even though that the classic 7 pro was a 98 sq. in. , the c 7 comp 93 sq. in. from the specs,sounds like a great stick. How does it play? I own now a couple of c10 comp, weighted up to 366 grams. can't stop to play with, one of the best mid ever IMHO.

    Hi Galain,

    I don't remember seeing one like you describe and would really like to see a picture (and specs) of it if possible. One thing I have learnt after 10+ years collecting is that once I think I have a good idea about racquet line-ups, there are always other versions emerging...

    Hi Cesare,

    no problem, glad you enjoy it! Unfortunately I can't really tell you much about how the C7 Comp plays, as I've only used it once or twice a couple of years ago. From what I remember it played pretty true to specs, no real surprises feelwise and nothing that really stood out either. A good solid racquet. :)

    As you say, the C10 Comp Mid is a gem... I modified two (out of five) to the following specs:

    Weight: 370/13.05
    Flex: 60
    SW: 337

    That's right, Dino. The C10 comp is very versatile, also great for top spin game, very stable and solid on the returns, manouvrable at net. unique and buttery feel on groundstrokes. Last but not least, i love the paint-job too, simple and beautiful. I think that next week i'll buy the third stick,fortunately i've just found another one brand new..

    Dino, great set of pics. Thanks for posting them. I have a C7 Comp, C10 Comp Mid, C10 Comp MP also. I had a C8 Comp but sold it to a dear friend here. The C7 Comp is a solid racquet but a small sweet spot. If you can find and zero in on the sweet spot it is a great racquet. If not it is not forgiving at all. I had two of my C10 Comp Mid's modified almost like yours. I have mine close to 14 oz with the balance the same. Very solid and very pinpoint accurate racquets.

    I'm looking for to buy a couple of these frames and can only find them in the wrong grip sizes. Do they have the same pallet system as others Volkls?

    I've just sourced a red PJ version of the C10 comp 93 in Germany. Looks great but lighter than the yellow and black version. Anybody familiar with this frame?

    Here's a couple of pictures...

    I've now got 5 of these C10 comp mids (although one is named C10 Classic.... Is that different?) and they all have the same frame shape, 4 have the same paint job but the static weights are wildly different. If I match up the specs will they play pretty similar or will they have such varied layups that each will feel different from the next?

    To clarify, the 4 yellow and blacks have similar specs, the red is 15g lighter and also has lower recommended tension of 51 +/- 4lbs
