    I would like to know the opinion of those who have had the chance to demo all three racquets. I do not have the luxury of a Volkl demo program where I am, and currently playing with both the T10VE Mid and C10 Pro MP.

    I'm extremely comfortable with both racquets, and I'm looking for one that blends the best of both worlds - the control of the T10 and soft feel of C10.

    Will the DNX10 be the middle road?

    Sorry gents not going to happen tonite. I have the racquet here at home if you have any questions......I will let you know when I hit them.

    I personally think I have made up my mind on the T10 ve 93's....For now I can't wrap my head around the 98 size!

    Well I saw the DNX 10 at one of my local stores tonight and it looks fantastic. I can't wait for them to get a demo so that I can take it out for a spin. I'm such a racquet *****!!!

    Yes, just looking at the pictures on the net is enough to bring goosebumps. I can't wait to actually hold one ...

    Mark, I'm defintely looking forward to your review when you're done! Am interested to find out more about comparative power on serves and groundstrokes. I have no doubt about the obvious control on netplay.

    Can't comment on the C10 pro. But I have hit with the DNX 10 325 gr and the T10 VE mid and I currently play with the T10 Gen II.

    I would say powerwise, the DNX 10 is in between the GenII (being the most powerfull of the 3) and the T10 VE although the string setups were not the same in the 3 rackets.

    I found the Gen II to have a more "old school" feel to it. The DNX 10 felt more "stiff" than it actually is according to the rating, could be the strings though.

    Can't say I noticed any difference in control with all 3 rackets. I string my Gen II at max rec. tension though, while the others were probably strung a kg or so lower.

    All in all I feel that the 18x20 in a 93 sq inch head combined with a flexy frame gives an odd feeling on slight mishits, ruling out the T10 VE mid for me. While the frame is flexy, the hit is still a bit harsh due to the tight pattern.

    The DNX 10 just doesn't have the same plush feel as the Gen II and has a tad less power (might be the 18X20 combined with a bit more flex) and I cannot say I have more control with the DNX.

    Thus, my choice is the T10 Gen II, same control, better feel, slightly more power.

    Hope this helps a bit,

    Regards,
    Maurice

    I've own all C10 Pro MP, C10 ProTour and T10 VE mid and DNX 10 325g.
    Out of all 4 the C10 Pro tour is the most stable one. C10 Pro 98 is more flexible in the upper half and not so stable when compared to the others. For DNX 10 there is some payoff for the increased stiffness on te frame as there is more vibration and comparatively less manuveable to the other 3. However it is a solid racket for groundstrokes and for the return of serves.
    My favourites are T10 VE mid and C10 Protour.
