A couple people asked me to comment on the DNX10. I've had the chance to dance with it for a long session. I like this frame a lot. Part of the reason is that it comes stock at about the same way I have modified my Gen1's to play. In fact, I would bet this frame comes from the Gen1 tool (mold), and I like that it is a true thin beamed frame with the classic Volkl kidney shaped profile.. it's typically Volkl and does everything well. it's at the fringe of my ablity to swing fast enough for the duration and played and swung like the specs -Compared to my Gen1's it hits a more punishing ball from the backcourt -I had no problem at all creating as much spin (both slice and top) as I wanted, so people shouldnt be too concerned about the 18mains pattern. But the only frames I've ever used which couldnt spin as much as i wanted are from the Radical series -It also hits a heavier more piercing ball than the VEMid and Gen2, but is slighty harder to swing fast than both. It's almost as powerful as the 10MPVE but you dont get the feeling that the ball could fly on you. It gives you the 'I can swing out with this frame' feel you get with the VEMid, but you dont lose the benefit of the larger sweetspot like you do with the VEMid, which is very important when returnng serves against a good server and for when you must recover defensively. Essentially, I feel this frame has some elements from all the 10series frames..it's very versitile and has a really nice soft feel to it, altho you can really feel how the DNX material firms things up. 18 mains arent my favorites to string and on my cheesy drop weight stringer, I had to rig an extra clamp and scrap piece of string to pull the last main on each side because I didnt have enough string. I dont use pro shop stringing machines on my personal frames. I strung this with 17ga Klip Legend in the mains and 17g Klip Excellerator in the crosses at a true 52. This frame would be for people who generate their own power and who have good spin control. it's precise yet you can load it up and hit it hard, flatten it out, and it will pay off for you with powerful piercing heavy shots. For a basic ralley ball, I was getting good net clearance with a nice spinny trajectory and had no trouble hitting deep in the court. Volleys are typical Volkl 10series..they;re great. Am reserving judgment on the serve..it was a bit more work to produce the same results as my tricked up Gen1's, but it's early in the game. it's got a generous sweetspot. i like this frame a lot.
