    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...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I would use the racquet matching service that several retailers offers such as Tennis Warehouse. That way you will get a racquet that performs as it should.

    2021 pure aero?

    The Pure Aero frame is really good. Not everyone though is a fan of the very open string pattern. I am sure there are plenty of players who don't buy it due to the open string pattern. The racquet could well be offered in two versions, or perhaps call the slightly tighter pattern version...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I played another 2 hours today and really started to gel with the racquet. Multi strings still not ideal for me but the racquet felt really nice. My training partner also tried for a while and was really impressed. He plays with a Ezone 100 DR and commented on improved comfort & control with the...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I received the racquet a few days ago and played 2 hours with it. Not enough of course, but I have to say the racquet felt really nice. The strings were not ideal for me (Tecnifibre X one at 25 kg/55 lbs) as I have always played with poly strings. Due to a elbow problem I have to use multis for...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I did in the end chose the only racquet that had specs in line with expectations. The racquet I chose had: 302,50 grams weight (weight of plastic wrap on handle already discounted) / 31,9 cm balance, 290 swing weight , stiffness unknown as unfortunately this racquet was bought from a retailer...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    It is a shame most consumers are not aware of the quality control issue...... As it is now, most people pay and have no idea that their racquet is not all how it should be. This morning I got a reply from another retailer who also checked 5 racquets for me. Only one met the specifications...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    Needless to say...... I ended up not buying it. I will see if I find another retailer with racquets in stock. Pretty disappointed that a brand such as Dunlop has such bad quality control. Of course that goes for all the others as well......

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I decided to buy the Dunlop CX 400 Tour. I had 5 racquets checked for specifications prior to buying. All 5 were way, way off the specs. Balance was 31,3 - 31,5cm and Swingweight unstrung around 280 for all. Strung that would come close to 310sw. Biggest disappointment was that all 5 had...

    Dunlop CX 400 Tour

    I am also quite keen on the Dunlop CX 400 Tour. Anyone has played with this racquet? The specs seem very much like the Speed MP or Pure Strike 100. I played a few months with the Pure Strike 100 (3rd gen) and did not like it mainly due to the very stiff feel. Lacked feel and comfort.

    Volkl advisory thread.

    Ok. Thanks for the information. I really like Volkl tennis racquets. I have only hit with the Vsense V1 Pro. It was however a really great racquet and despite having a 66 stiffness rating (strung) it was very comfortable. I will most likely buy the next V-Cell V1 Pro as soon as it is...

    By coincidence, I found out that in July 2017, Volkl was acquired by private equity firm "Kohlberg & Company". https://www.kohlberg.com/investments/ If I remember correct, the stiffest ever Volkl racquets (V-Feel) where released in 2018...... This is how they describe themselves...

    The Official Angell Users Club

    Has anyone played with the new Angell Cyan K7 300 grams, standard lenght? I am keen on it but noticed the Swingweight to be rather low (278 unstrung). I know that one can add lead tape etc but personally I never seem to get it right and end up pulling it off....... Therefore I prefer to get the...

    Volkl V Cell range

    I was told today by Volkl customer support that the next Vcell V1 Pro will after all only be released in July 2021. Anyway, I am really keen on this racquet. I found the Vsense V1 Pro really interesting with its 99,50 in2 head size and decently thin tapered beam (23mm/20mm/23mm). I used to play...
