    Anyone get a chance to hit with this yet? Please share your opinions especially wondering how stiff it plays.

    Why don't the Volkl guys hand out a few sticks for review like Babolat?

    Hit with it last night, stiff but comfortable, great for s&v,otherwise, pretty good, the x8 super g, on the other side was absolutely horrible, lots of vibration and feels like you are hitting bricks rather than tennis balls, I could bear with it only for five minutes.

    It hits with a surprising amount of spin. It's really stable and has a lot of control for its power. Plow though is excellent. Love the glow-in-the-dark cosmetics.

    How does the x8 and x9 super g compare with the dc london?

    Im still hoping volkl makes the new 10 Super G the spiritual successor of the Tour 10 Gen 1 MidPlus with RAP grommets and a 16x19. I just cant do 18x20 patterns.

    Hit with it today, actually played an entire set with it. It volleys really well and it's very comfortable. As previously stated, the plow through is great. I though spin was ok, nothing special. I actually had some trouble getting it around on the forehand side, but for my two handed backhand and volleys, it was great. Serving was ok. Funny story, I was using a Babolat Pure Strike in my doubles match today, we won the first set 6-1. In the second set, we went down 0-5 and I switched to the 9, and we proceeded to win 7 straight games. The main reason I switched was because there was a guy on the other side who was taking huge cuts at the ball and drilling it right at me. The 9 absorbed his pace very well.

    They do not have that kind of production capacity.
    Ever since their Chinese production plant burned down,
    they have had to outsource production to Wilson's factory in Mongolia.

    I was skeptical about the 18x20 pattern but it hasn't really been noticable in terms of spin production. It hits a mean ball - beautifully solid feel and gives lovely pace of the centre of the bat. Still prefer the X9 probably cause I've used it a lot more, but the X9SG certainly has the potential at least with a bit more hitting. Beast on serves & serve returns.

    I went ahead and bought one, played two more sets of doubles today. The stiffness in noticeable to me, especially on high backhand volleys, I can really stick the ball. Best thing about this frame to me is how solid it is on the volley, really nice. I'm having mine restrung with gut in the mains, so I'll post more thoughts on it soon. Thus far, I've been using the TW demo with a grip that is too big, strung with volkl black strings.

    How is the ball feel like of the new 9. Organix like? traditional volkl feel? Does it have good amount of feedback?

    "It's like the X10 Mid; very crisp with a lot of bite, even with the 18 mains. The head does not flex and you feel everything. There is more weight towards the head, so it really works well with modern heavy spin strokes but the control level is really high. Very stable"

    I agree that the head does not flex. I actually have a little trouble generating spin off the ground, but really this frame is a great one for doubles, the serve and volley are rock solid.

    a nice improvement over the x9. the super g has a bit more pop yet has good spin and the control one would expect from a 18x20. agree that it is crisp and great for an all court attacking and serve and volley type of play. i still like the x10-295 with some tail weight best but volkl did a nice job here. the paint scheme definitely turns heads!!
