    Volkl advisory thread.

    I'm still playing with my Super G 10 mids (4 years). Looks like the new line from Volkl is coming soon .....

    Why aren't you using Volkl?

    I am still using my Super G Mid 320's and have no interest the F-feel line. I thought that the V-Sense line didn't perform as well as the SG line but was Volkl's attempt to bring more "feel" and "feedback" into their line as the SG line was very dampened and muted. The SG line though (at least...

    Volkl V-Sense 10 Mid

    Pure Strike feels more solid and has more spin. Control is very similar betwene the PO7 and V Sense 10 Mid but 18x20 PS has better control. Pure Strike 16x19 has a bit more power and hits a loopier ball. Pure Strike 18 x 20 hits with the flattest trajectory and V Sense 10 Mid is in between...

    Volkl V-Sense 10 Mid

    My next favorite racket is the TC95 16x19 (70RA). Spin and control of the new V-Sense Mid is very similar. V-Sense has more raw feel than the foam filled TC 95 and slightly better control than the Angell. Power level is also very close. Very similar frames in terms of playability/performance...

    Volkl V-Sense 10 Mid

    I purchased 2 V-Sense Volkl 10 Mids and had TW's Paul Reed match them to the same spec as my Super G 10 Mid 320. I have both versions strung with Cyclone Black at 52/50 but with the V-Sense I went with 17G and on my SG Mid 320 I use 18G. My custom spec (strung) is 12.3 oz. 7 pts HL, 320 SW...

    Babolat Pure Strike 98 18x20 - Thiem

    I have both the 16x19 and 18x20 2017 Pure Strike and I actually prefer the 18x20 or Thiem endorsed model. I find the stringbed on the 18x20 to be more consistent and spin generation is very good for a dense pattern. The 16x19 has a hot spot where the ball can explode and be be somewhat...

    Volkl strategy with the 10 series

    I still have a couple of C10's from 2007 (the bumblebee version). These things are flexy noodles compared to my SG10 mid 320's. I prefer hitting with my Tour 10 MP V-engines but I digress. I have not hit with the latest iterations of the C10's to know if the feel has changed much over the...

    Babolat Pure Strike Too Powerful? ...the king of BOING!?

    I have had the exact same experience with the PS17 16x19. The sweetspot to me is a decent size but it has different 'zones' of power and a center hot spot where the ball will explode off of the string bed. I play with an eastern/semi-western grip and have longer flatter strokes so I was missing...

    The best 10 series MP volkl (Mark II)

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane!! I go back to the old Tour 10 days. No longer have that but still have 2 Tour 10 Gen 2's and 2 old C10's to go along with my V-engines. I cast my vote for the V-engine as I played with it (the MP) the longest and still have 8 of them! I still play with...

    Yonex VCore 95D vs TC Angell 95 16*19 63 or 70RA

    I have the SV95 and TC95 320 70RA 16x19 They are quite similar from a playability perspective. The SV95 is a little faster through the air to swing and has a little bit better spin (the TC95 still has great spin though) with a slightly higher launch angle. It is more string sensitive and does...

    Dunlop Precision Line: Winner or Loser?

    I agree. The Force line is completely different and the new Precision Line is an extension of the old 300/3.0 and 400/4.0 lines. Dunlop currently has no 200/2.0 upgrade. The M2.1 is essentially the M2.0 with a different paint job and it is being phased out. Hopefully something new is in the...
