Today I recieved the Völkl DNX1 Powerarm racquet. Tomorrow I'll take it for a spin against a player that I normally beat, but I normally beat him by being consistent as this guy doesnt give me many free points. Will be interesting to see if I can play consistent with this racquet. Some time later this week I'll try it against a guy who is better than me and who normally dictates play against me. I cant say that I am all that familiar with the US rating system but if I were to rate myself I would say I am 5.0+. My style of play is mostly baseline with forehand and serve being my best shots. I read the reviews of this racquet and felt I just had to try it. I have got a big collection of racquets at home and pretty similar seems to be the Prokennex ki 30 which I found to be a pretty good racquet that I felt comfortable with in stock form dispite it being very different from my normal prokennex type R. The ki 30 hits a pretty good flat ball with some roll on it for control but it was harder to hit a powerful shot with heavy spin. Same with serves, a good flat serve but I lost alot of speed on serve when going for more spin. This is an area where I am very curious how the powerarm will perform. I strung the racquet with a set of pro supex premier ace that I had lying around and it was a very easy racquet to string with its open 16*17 pattern. I strung it at 54 lbs. The racquet weighed 268 grams strung with the volkl worm dampener in place. It measured 70.3 cm long with a balance of 36.4 cm. (4 points HH I believe). I'll post more tomorrow when I have played with it. Would be nice to hear from others who have played with this monster of a racquet.
