    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 ..... https://www.volkltennis.com/collections/v-cell/products/v-cell-9?variant=31883129847913

    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...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop Precision Racquets

    video reviews are up. Based on my experience playing with the last 3 lines of Dunlop over the years and particularly with the F/S/M series I suggest stringing on the lower end of recommended tension and NOT using a firm poly. Volkl Cyclone 17 or Cyclone Tour in any of the colors with a max...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop Precision Racquets

    sorry about that! it was meant to be shorter with just my initial thoughts after a few hours of hitting. I didn't think about people who might be reading on their phones. It seems to be ok reading on a pc. My official review will have all the proper formatting. Stay tuned ....

    Dunlop F3.0 Tour: nothing's perfect

    I played with the F3.0 Tour for a year before switching to the M2.0. I would not string it above 53 lbs with a full bed of poly. You can string the crosses 2 lbs lower to widen out the sweetspot. I would also suggest using a 1.20 (17 or 17L) gauge string. I used KB Proline 2 17L at 53/51...

    Cyclone 17 vs. B5E vs. Ultracable vs. HyperG 17

    I am cutting out the Ultra Cable. I can understand that people who like deep ball pocketing and great snap back love this string but for me the string bed is too unpredictable. Some balls go long. Others land short due to the heavy spin and I just cannot find my groove with it. Hyper G is...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop Precision Racquets

    Initial Feedback on Precision 100 Tour (more detailed review will follow) The new Dunlop Precision 100 Tour is a nice update to the Biomimetic F4.0 Tour. It has a little more pop and stability, and the feel is slightly firmer and more muted probably due to the new handle system. The older...

    Cyclone 17 vs. B5E vs. Ultracable vs. HyperG 17

    Thank you for your detailed review and insight Red Rook! Great feedback!! - I wasn't overly impressed with B5E when it was fresh but after 2 hours of play I started to appreciate it more and now I really like it. It has settled into a nice feeling string with good spin, and is comfortable in...

    Dunlop Precision 98 Tour

    Check out the play test thread for future updates there. Unfortunately I received the 100 Tour so I will not be able to compare the 98 Tour to my F3.0 of Bio 300 Tour. Still excited to play test the 100 Tour. I still have my 8 Dunlop M2.0's and played with them for 2 years. Great lighter...

    Völkl V-sense

    It seems like those who prefer a softer and more classic feel may like the new V-sense models. Chris and Andy have been quite consistent in their reviews of the V-sense line saying it has a classic yet crisp feel. Adding a leather grip and a little lead up top isn't a lot of modification, it...

    Völkl V-sense

    Interesting review. It appears that the SG version has more pop and stability than the v-sense. It would have been nice if they compared to the previous version but maybe they will do that with the written review.

    Cyclone 17 vs. B5E vs. Ultracable vs. HyperG 17

    I have a set of Ultracable that I am going to use for the TT Playtest I am doing for the new Dunlop Precision Tour 100. I just have a feeling it will play better in that then my Volkl Mid 96. As for the color; I agree with you that it is the coolest looking strings in yellow and possibly...

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest: Dunlop Precision Racquets

    Received my 100 Tour this evening. Nice paint job on it. This one looks to be a new mold that combines elements of the M4.0, which was a descendant of the Bio 400. Looks to be a control oriented tweener with medium power. More to follow.

    Cyclone 17 vs. B5E vs. Ultracable vs. HyperG 17

    Interesting observation. I love the control of a 95/96 and that probably helps with managing tension loss and adjusting. That said the reason I played with KB PL2 so long is that it lasted so long and that is why I am not giving up on B5E. I am currently around 4 hours with Cyclone and a...
