    TW rates the C10 Pro as a Low-Medium Power racquet. The USRSA Power Index (on tennis.com) for the Volkl C10 Pro is 1762, which is one of the lowest.

    A majority of racquets categorized by TW as "low" have USRSA Power indices significantly above 1762.

    Can anybody explain? Are there different versions of this racquet?

    I'm demoing the C10 Pro now, and it does seem to offer a bit more power, that's why I was surprised at the low USRSA rating.

    i don't consult the USRSA so can't say. i think TW ratings are correct when i compare the the power of the C10 with the T10V 93 which is rated low.

    Think it is at the top end of the low powered rackets. Incidentally TW lists its flex at 63. A few other sites list it at 56. I would concur with the lower number as it feels flexier/softer than most other rackets i've tried (helped with the golfers elbow).
    Incidentally i also thinks it softens up a little more after playing with it for a few times. Great stick though.

    I found the C10 pro quite powerful for a player's frame. I had to string it full poly to tame the power.
