    look at the top right corner of this page. there you will find "racquet finder". in this area, it provides you with info on almost all discontinued frames...

    i have already used the racquet finder and the search option. But have found less info than i tought. The C7 apparently look like a "classic" frame, but i want ear some opinions of C7 pro users...
    thanks.

    One of the greatest players racquet Volkl has made.
    Feels flexy, nice spins considering the dense pattern.
    Very maneuverable at the net
    No problem from the baseline.
    I guess the recent DNX 10 is a clone of C7 Pro.

    Not bad. I think that the beam is 22mm. Very nice specs.
    Someone have pics?

    The beam is 19mm. C7 Pro has nothing in common with other tweener 7 series racquets. I'm looking forward to comparing C7 Pro with DNX 10 sooner or later.

    I had the C7 Pro and really liked it although I could never find more than the 1 that I had. It's a nice playing racquet if you like 18X20 frames. It had nice pop for an 18X20 with a swingweight around 325 I would guess. I played with it for a few months and really found it to be somewhat similar to the C10 but without the noodley feel and a quite a bit more control. One of the sleeper Volkls out there that would be more popular if it was readily available. Hopefully the Dnx10 will be close to it, as it looks similar by the specs.

    I have a c7 comp - the red, black and yellow one. Good control, firm without being stiff, very nice feel, not especially powerful. Mine is a 98 though. If you can dig up the 'post pics of your gear' thread I think my stuff is on page 17 or so - there's a shot of it there somewhere.

    Nice no bull$hit frame, especially strung in the low recommended range.

    I think most of the CPro series came from the same mold. The layups, weights, and balances were different along with the string patterrns. They were all nice frames in my opinion. I used the c8pro's for years in spite of their light weight. A word of caution about these is that they were subject to racquet fatigue. Most of them were softer flex to begin with. After multiple stringings rotating 3-4 frames and playing a lot of tennis, I would get about 2-3 years out of these frames before they felt fatigued. if someone likes the feeel of a fatigued frame or couldnt feel the diff, that's cool, but I didnt find it particularly appealing. Soft flexing frames from that era were subject to fatigue after many restrings..... most of the used classic frames from all manufacturers simply dont feel like they did when new.

    Actually own the C7Pro from 1999 and it has a buttery feel that has to come from fiberglass in the mix. If you used a Tour 10 mp, have an idea how the C7Pro plays. Awesome feel though.

    If it is a C7 Pro black/yellow 18x20 and 98 sq.inches it is an awesome stick....way better overall than the C10. 22mm constant beam, hm graphite with some kevlar. Stable, good pop, great spin for an 18x20 and much less flexy in the hoop than the C10. The best serious stick from Volkl in since the late 90's.

    Recently unearthed stash of C7 Pros

    C7 Pros aren't that hard to find. I just bought four of them, two brand new! :)

    I got two C7 Pros tucked away somewhere in the house. Bought them 6 years ago. Maybe it's time I put them to use. But remembering where I kept them is already a challenge!
