Volkl Organix X10 Mid
 
Heads up - just got word that the X10 mid is in development. Prototypes currently being tested. Final specs still under consideration.

For those of you who are interested in this frame, what would you like to see?

I'll start: personally, I'd like the hoop to be stiffer, to minimize the flutter in the upper hoop upon contact. I'm thinking the Organix material in the right places should accomplish this. Also hope it retains the same head shape with wider shoulders (lower hoop).

Can't wait to try this one out - I've been waiting for this one for almost 2 years...

Nice! I would definitely like to see more stability in the upper hoop without the use of lead tape.

Agree with the above. Any one knows when this long awaited O-X10 Mid would be released! Thanks.

This is just a guess, but based on playtesting and production timelines, not until sometime in 2013, but it's definitely coming.

Hasn't Volkl traditionally launched their new frames in Spring...?

Pics of the X10 mid posted with permission from Volkl. Head shape is nearly identical to that of the PB10 mid.

looks like a very nice stick

I want to get my hands on one of those frames. It's hard to imagine that the Mid10 can be improved. LOVE mine!

Awesome paint job, really liking the black/white combo!

Release date? Reviews anyone?

Hi I'm Ray 12-09-2012 12:10 AM

The PB10 Mid is gonna be hard to top. Nice black pj on the new version, though not liking the white parts too much.

Hominator 12-09-2012 04:19 AM

While the accents look white, they're actually silver.

Also, the flutter from the upper hoop - a common complaint of the PB10 mid - is completely gone now.

And of course, the feel of the frame is different from the PB10 mid because of the Organix material. The Organix makes it feel more "modern."

jayserinos99 12-09-2012 05:00 PM

Hominator, so the feel of the x10mid is very similar to the x10mp or is the feel like a pb10mid but w/o the upper hoop looseness/flutter?

How do you define "modern"? Is it due to the stiffness?

Meaghan 12-09-2012 11:59 PM

Will have to have a look at this, thanks Hom.......

rlau 12-10-2012 04:32 AM

The Volkl name on the throat should be silver too, not yellow....

Meaghan 12-10-2012 06:30 AM

Hom, have the kept the same mold as the pb? The x10 mp I love but I wish it still had the c10 skinny throat.......

Probably more muted, just like Organix 10 325.

The new X10 mid doesn't have the same softer flex or wobble as the PB10 mid, due to the Organix at the poles. It still feels soft, but not "flexible soft," if that makes sense.

The frame is overall stiffer and has less dwell time than the PB10 mid, due to the Organix. With the X10 mid, balls hit above the sweetspot towards 12:00 come off with a lot of bite and good power, where the PB10 mid would flutter a bit, if you didn't lead it at 10/2.

To me, a modern feel is a quick response off the string bed. In contrast, a more traditional feel has more dwell time. The stick is also very stable with little need for additional lead tape.
