    Is it just my eyes or does the 18x20 look wider?

    Desperately Seeking Comfort, Precision, Power and Stability

    Gravity Pro is still too light for me so I customized it to where I wanted it to be - like my C10 Pro. My grip is 4 3/8 so I got a 4 1/4, installed a shrink sleeve, added 4g at 11 and 1 getting it to 12.8 oz with a 9 pts HL balance. I think you should initially resist the temptation of...

    This is indeed a tough one to call. Feels to me that there are more things at play here. There's the adjustment to the new racquet. Different balance, SW, flex, feel can all contribute to or affect timing/rhythm, RHS, footwork, etc. They're subtle but they can manifest in different ways. I...

    Yes you're totally right it's 13+ oz :) It is much stiffer feeling than the C10 Pro. But yeah supremely solid, stable, and good control (16x20). I only have one so I don't use it for matches as I might start to like it more again and I can't play matches with only one racquet.

    My sentiments exactly. When I'm late I have never blamed the racquet. Unless I'm wielding a sledgehammer, no racquet that I have played have been heavy enough to affect my net game. I have the C10 Pro, POG 107, PK Ki 5 PSE, Big Bubba 137 (412 SW). They've never given me issues at the net...

    Volkl C10 Pro users - talk to me!

    I would like to qualify my previous post re syngut :) When I mentioned string movement I was referring solely from my experience. As I have mentioned, I have a very "spinny" game style. When I tried stringing my 98 sq. in. racquets with syngut at 60 or 62 it only took me the first two...

    Totally agree :)

    I've played with the old and new. The older plays softer than the re-release. Solid, good heft. But a bit stiffer than my elbow cares about.

    It is 16x19 but spacing is closer in the middle so it has better control than the other more "open" 16x19's. But yes it does have tons of power. If your grip is continental to eastern and as a consequence hit flatter shots then a tighter stringbed is needed to rein in the power. My grip is...

    I suggest restringing to your preferred string specs and evaluate from there. It would not be an objective assessment of the racquet otherwise. I find strings can make or break a racquet.

    I string my C10's with poly/syngut hybrid generally at 48/50. Sometimes I'd go up by at most 2 lbs or down 2 lbs. Depends on strings or how I play at a particular period of time. For now I string using Sergetti which I find so much friendlier to my elbow.

    I see what you mean. You've just been spoiled by the PA too much. From time to time I get to hit with a friend's PA and am amazed at how easy it is to get the ball going. I used to play with the 1st and 2nd gen PA for several years. But it eventually messed up my elbow. I get it. So did...

    Volkl advisory thread.

    I have the 2018 C10 Pro. It's weighted up (4g) at 10 and 2 to increase SW. It's got power, plow and comfort.

    Demanding in what way? I use the GPro and except for the fact that it's much lighter than my primary stick the Volkl C10 Pro the racquet seem quite user-friendly to me.
