    I play with a BB Pure Drive 2006. Due to some back and neck injuries I look for a more comfortable and friendly racquet. I am quite thin, 45 years old, I play on clay with moderate spin and I go to the net just for shaking hands. I have heard that Volkl are very friendly and comfortable. I have read about the Organix 1, the Classic v1... Any recomendation about these or any other models or bands? Regards

    I used Volkl C10 Pro my whole junior career and never had a problem with my body... When I switched to other companies (Babolat, Dunlop), my injuries came a plenty

    Thans all. But, how is the organix v1 pro? The link shows no picture, no price; it is not listed with all the volkl racquets... And even I don't see on volkl official site. Regards

    My choice would be the Organix 7 (295) , I choose the 295 as there is room to modify w/o driving the static weight over 12 oz.

    The v1 leaded up is quite similar to a pure drive. Very comfy and great power and spin.

    Ummm, how is your current racquet a problem if you have "back and neck injuries"?

    I don't think that the injuries are due to the Pure Drive, actually. It is more a question of genetic. I am pretty comfortable with the PD. But considering that they are 7 years old I am thinking about buying new racquets and it is relevant that the new one is comfortable also.
