    Thoughts about Volkl V-Cell V1 Pro (2021)

    You have a valid point indeed. Playability matters most. And tastes do differ. As mentioned, I think I will buy it anyway as I really did enjoy the Vsense version. I was off for 1 year due to a knee injury and silly enough, I sold my tennis stuff during that time..... Now, I hope the V-Cell is...

    Thoughts about Volkl V-Cell V1 Pro (2021)

    I think the V1 Pro is a great frame, based on my experience from the Sense version. The beam thickness is very different to anything else I have seen, 23mm - 20 mm - 23mm. It did perhaps lack a bit of power sometimes but the amount of control was outstanding and the sweetspot was big. It really...

    Thoughts about Volkl V-Cell V1 Pro (2021)

    At the least on paper, the balance sounds strange. The Vsense V1 Pro I had felt very maneuverable but perhaps it was off specs. Usually 305 gram racquet seem to be more headlight. There must be some kind of logic behind this rather unusual balance? Seems such a balance (32,5 cm unstrung) is...

    Thoughts about Volkl V-Cell V1 Pro (2021)

    Volkl is about to release (25th of June) the new Volkl V-Cell V1 Pro. https://www.volkltennis.com/products/v-cell-v1-pro I have been waiting for this release as I previously played with the Vsense version which I really liked a lot. Anyway, what are your thoughts of the previous versions of...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    Thanks for your comments. I imagine "VF" refers to VFeel and "VS" perhaps to Vsense? I had previously two Vsense V1 Pro's and they felt very maneuverable. However, back then I knew nothing of specs so could well have been off specs. In the TW review of the VFeel V1 Pro it seemed the...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    Thanks again. Fingers crossed the soon to be released V-Cell V1 Pro will be a great racquet. Maybe one day my level will be high enough to use a racquet such as the Vcell 10 320 grams :)

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    Thanks again. Sorry, one last question :) I always liked my previous Vsense V1 Pro. At that time I did not pay attention to specs and merely bought it as it had a reputation for being an arm fríendly racquet in the 300-305 gram bracket. I have seen that some seem to think the V1 Pro is...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    Thanks again. Greatly appreciated. It is all about confidence for sure. Surely one can learn to play with any racquet, but at the same time everyone's swing and play style differs and there is probably a certain style racquet that better suites each playing level and style. Tennis is...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    On a different note, could someone share their knowledge with me regarding level of power...... I am mainly referring in this case to the V1 Pro which weights approx 305 grams and has a 99,50 inch head size. The V-Cell 10 weights 320 grams and has a 98 inch headsize. Seems Swingweight is...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    Thanks for sharing your insights. Sounds like a nice racquet indeed. I would imagine though that the V1 Pro perhaps suites ny level better as I need a bit of extra forgiveness. I have a bit of a golfers elbow problem at the moment and have been thinking of trying a heavier frame. I really liked...

    Volkl V-Cell 10

    @Pneumated1 How would you compare the VCell 10 to the V1 Pro with regards to power? Do you think it is more difficult to play with compared to the V1 Pro? I played with the Vsense V! Pro for two years and really liked it. I ended up selling it due to an injury that kept me away from tennis for a...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    So far I have used in stock form. Right now I have it at 328 grams with overgrip and dampener. As it feels really manoeuvrable I am sure it could easily take some extra weight.

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    According to Dunlop, the RA rating of the Dunlop CX 400 Tour is 67 unstrung (https://dunlopsports.com/products/tennis/rackets/cx-400-tour/). On the racquet also is written 67 unstrung. TW tends to base their RA rating on the average value of "X" number of racquets they measure.

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    Regarding string patterns. Personally I really like the tighter spacing in the sweetspot of the Dunlop CX 400 Tour. It really suits my style. I also had a Volkl V8 Pro and a Yonex Vcore 100 for demo this weekend. Played 4 hours with them along with the Dunlop. The Vcore 100 did not suit me...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I have now played a few more hours with the Dunlop CX 400 Tour. The racquet plays really nice. It offers food power but in a controlled manner. I don't think I will play anymore with my Ezone 100. The Dunlop feels quite a lot more comfortable which for me is really important. I can also swing...
