    One of the best os rackets ever made, imo, along with rad twin tube. Good pop, nice soft yet precise touch, great spin available. A really playable oversize that feel like a more powerful c10 midplus. Definitely worth a try, although getting a little harder to find sometimes.

    Great feel and combination of power and control. However, as somebody mentions in the other thread, the C10 OS is quite cumbersome, despite its seemingly low weight. The extended length + larger head make it quite difficult to move around. BTW, my regular racquet is 12+ OZ with a SW around 330 and it is nevertheless substantially more maneuverable than the Volkl. You need to take quite a swing on the serve to get some power, otherwise you can't get enough head speed. One handed backhands require good early preparation. You can't rush the swing with this stick, too much racquet to move around.

    Also the handle shape is a lot more rectangular than that of a Wilson/Prince. Some say this is typical of all Volkls.

    There are still soem touring pros that use the C10 OS painted like a newer racquet. It is a great control racquet IF you can generate your own power to it.

    A great baseline OS, one of the few that you can bash away with without launching the ball long, very comfortable, not as nimble as some (read "POG") other oversizes at net, great on return of serve. Butt of numerous "taxicab yellow" jokes.
