    There was a Gen I and Gen II for the MP, but not the 93in2. That is why you confused me in the beginning of the thread. They did release a later version that had "Tour" in red on the side of the throat just above the grip. But the Tour 10 93in2 was not out for long, before it was replaced by the T10 VE 93in2, which was a much better frame.

    If you do like this racquet, you will be very happy come summer.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I've been out of the loop with new racquets since I bought these back in 2002.
    I'm absolutely in love with this racquet, I've been using it for almost 9 years now.

    The reason I asked for the specs is because I've had them customized for so long now that I forgot the original specs & now I want to try different lead tape positions/combos.

    Thanks again!

    Volkl Tour 10MP vs Tour 10MP Gen II vs C-10 Pr0

    Hello,

    I own C-10 Pro (old yellow), however, I am not happy yet. Could be the racquet, could be string. Currently it is strung with Alu Adrenalin at 53 lb. Power and consistency do not make it a weapon, not yet for me.
    I have read with great interest about Tour 10MP and Tour 10MP Gen II. How would you compare them to C-10? Perhaps, one of them would give me what I am looking for?

    Thank you,
    Nickolas

    The C10 is something special yes, in my opinion you have two ways, or you like it or you dont.
    It plays very flexible but with a lot of feel to it.
    I still play the T10 gen I cos Volkl made that one a lot firmer (not stiff!)
    It plays very sweet yet with enough power and stability, totally different then the C10 but with the same results...

    I used the yellow C10 pro and moved to the Tour 10 MPGen I years ago. The T10 is still very flexy and soft but Volkl stiffened up the upper hoop and the T10 has a more uniform response across the strings. The C10 lost quite a bit of power if you hit near the tip of the hoop. The T10 is a beautiful racquet and a bit more forgiving than the C10. Touch shots with the C10 however were second to none. They're both great sticks though and both very arm friendly whilst being responsive.

    Now that the summer has come and gone, it meant the London Tour.

    Hi novac.20v -

    I think Maverick has explained the names and racquets pretty well in reply #8, but I'm not sure you completely get it, because the racquet you have (still) listed in your signature does not exist.

    The whole Quantum series line, of which there where quite a few, (Quantum V1, Quantum 10, Quantum 10 Tour, etc.) is an entirely separate line of frames from the Tour series (Tour 5, Tour 6, Tour 10 VE, Tour 10 Gen I, and Tour 10 Gen II etc. )

    So when you insert the word "Quantum" in with there with the Tour 10 Gen I Mid, (which is what I think you have) it's kind of confusing, and probably why you turned up very little on your search for specs.

    See photo. The top racquet shown, The Quantum 10 Tour, wasn't available in a mid size. hope this helps! -Jack

    I do understand, I put "Quantum" is because it says "Quantum" on the racquet instead of "Tour"
    It also has the bumper guard going around the whole head.

    Here's a crappy picture to prove it does exist:

    It also says "Tour 10 Mid" on the side of the throat. without the "quantum" which is why I added the "Tour" to my signature.

    That's just a Tour 10 Mid. The early production had Quantum written on them.

    Which is why I put Quantum in quotes.
    I know there is no difference.

    Ah yes, I see your photos, and explanation. Cool cool, It's your signature... you can put whatever you like in there, no biggie. Just letting you know its a bit confusing, to put the word Quantum into a frame that belongs in the tour series.

    Here is a screen grab I took of the Volkl website back in July 2002. You can see the names of the tour series frames, and the quantum series frames. Not being contentious, I'm just being (perhaps awkardly) passionate about the Volkl Frames from this era.

    That was an odd bit of nomenclature at the time, and obviously still causes distress and confusion.

    My three T10 Mids all read "Quantum" at 4-5 o'clock, though I'm not sure they had anything whatsoever to do with the Quantum sticks, besides being Volkls.

    I'm sure someone else here will have a better understanding or reason behind this...though it could just be as simple as a catastrophic QA/QC MFG, marketing or cosmetics error...since later versions replaced "Quantum" with "Tour."

    They had different graphics on the T10 Mid. I had eight of them and sold them all. Some did have "Quantum" on them if memory serves. Some had red "Tour" printed on them. Some did not.

    Bottom Line: They are all mids, and have no relation to the 98in2 versions, the Q10 Tour and the Q10.

    Unless you just really love that stick, if you want more in a better and more refined version from the same mold, then play with the London Tour. There's no comparison; the newer version is far better in every way. FYI: I played with the T10 for its whole release time, from just before its release until I got my hands on my Volkl favorite, the T10 VE Mid.

    Yeah, I really need to update / upgrade...and, because I'm a bit of a racquet 'ho, I'll probably pick up several in the near future, not just for hitting, but as a bit of a collector...which will include (2 each):

    London
    London Tour
    Melbourne

    PB10 Mid
    X9 Organix

    IG Prestige Mid
    IG Prestige Pro

    To paraphrase the old t-shirt back in the day, "Give me BB/Volkl, or give me Head."

    I'm not playing competitively any longer, nor is my wife...but we still enjoying running each other ragged (when her wrist/etc. isn't beating her down). But as you can see, I'm torn between thinking I'm still a 20-something 5.0+ stud and not the late-40s 4.5-on-a-good-day I actually am. But hey, it's not like I'm playing for money...

    I'm intrigued by the NYC, but will take a wait-and-see approach...but with my Volkl/BB penchant, it's definitely on my radar.

    So, any news on a BB Paris? Or re-branding the Melbourne as the London Pro?

    I should probably pick up a stringing machine at some point as well...I spent a college summer stringing back in '84, and got pretty good and fast at it...and there's a bunch of string I'd be interested in trying.

    BB Paris?

    Boris never won Paris. I can't see them coming out with a BB Paris.

    The NYC is set in stone. Maybe suppawat has or will have photos. I am hoping to see one in two weeks or so.

    Fair enough...I thought it was more about putting out sticks for each of the Slams, not necessarily ones BB won. But with that in mind, that frees them up to re-branding the Melbourne as the London Pro.
