    Can anyone compare the playing characteristics of the Volkl Catapult 3 vs. the Volkl Fire Catapult 3?

    Good question! And while we're at it, does anyone here on the boards use the Catapult 3 FIRE? Given the fact that it won tne Tennis Magazine's "Editor's Choice" award, someone out there must be using it?

    Use the Catapult 1 FIRE and have an original Catapult 3 as a back-up. CAT 3 has a firmer, tighter stringbed which lessens power and gives more control. FIRE gives a really quiet, vibration-free feel or impact which is noticeable after trying a traditional racquet. Two yrs ago used a PS 6.0 85 and those Volkls can be used without a long adjustment period. Try those racquets, I play dubs and the extra inches helped my game overall. CAT 3 weighs about 10 oz strung.
