I had a hit today with my buddy Paul who is a TP and also a Tour Trainer. He uses the PD Standard. I took a bunch of bats out on court and hit the DNX8,9,10, and my present T10MP Gen1's and we hit a volume of balls. Paul hit the PD and the DNX8..here is what he had to say <snip> I tried the new Volkle racquet today (please fill in the type it was). I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much control and power it gave me. The weight and balence was perfect and it gave me a very predictable hit off of it. After using it for several minutes I found that it has a great blend of balence and stability throughout it. I've demo'ed racquets in the past and usually I would have to take a few hits to get use to it, but not this one, it's a keeper! The stiffness of the racquet was not too great but just enough to allow for great feel of the ball and give great control. The sound of the ball off the racquet was pleasent; not high pitched, but rather soft which was how it felt. Great kudos to the boys at Volkle! Im a fan for sure! <end snip> Paul is a good guy and really knows his stuff. He is currently working with Justin Gimlestab and was training Ginepri before and when he made his big run. Paul has a training concept which is phone, fax, internet, and email based and his website is pisanitraining.com for those of you who are very serious about tennis or cycling fitness, and fitness in general. Yes, this is a blatant plug for my bud Paul Pisani.
