    Question on customizing

    Let's assume you take a racket that is 10.7 oz, 1 point HH, What would you do to make it 11.2 oz while keeping it 1 point HH?

    Thank you very much. I really like the 940 and would like to keep it. Now I have an option. lcw

    I have been using an Egnas Flex 940 for 2 years and never had any problems with the machine. So far I used it about 20 times because I only string for myself and my wife. We rarely break the strings so we change them only because of tension loss. The 940 takes more room than I would like so I...

    Luxilon why?

    Every time I see Couurier on TV he is pushing this string. First what string exactly he is touting and second is he being sincere? Thanks

    elbow friendly racquet

    Stiffnes does not necessarely cause arm problems. I have a very old and fragile arm and never had any issues while using any VOLKL racquet regardless of stiffnes. lcw

    volkl tour 9 V-engine 16x19 2nd ever review i think??

    My wife (level 4.5 to 5 ) uses this racquet and prefers it to her old stick the PD. She produces plenty of spin and power with it. I personally used it every now and then and found it to be a nicer hit than the DNX 9. No racquet was ever built to suite every body and perception often gets in...

    New racquet for Tennis elbow...

    Both DNX v1 and Classic V1 are arm friendly. Many people switch to these racquets to avoid arm problems. Don't be fooled by the weight on the classic v1 it can produce just about any shot in the book and with great comfort to boot. The classic v1 will go in history as one of the best racquets...

    ***Volkl DNX10 MP Review***

    That was a cheap shot since you don't know the real reason some one is selling/exchanging a racquet.

    ***Volkl DNX10 MP Review***

    This got to be the most underrated racquet ever but if you overlook the string bed and color, this is a sweet stick especially if you string it at low tension.

    DNX9 revisited

    Mojo: Funny how things turn out some times. They say to switch to lighter racquets as you get older, I find the opposite to be more appropriate. I am too old to generate heavy spin and powerful strokes. The vision is fluctuating and the reflex is down the toilet. I reshaped my game to use a...

    Volkl V1 Classic

    Alley cat: I used the V1 classic and the V1 Hotspot before it when I played an aggressive game on hard courts. Due to health issues related to old age, I am a baseliner junky now playing exclusively on clay. The DNX10 MP is more forgiving especially when I am late seeing the ball. I can...

    Volkl V1 Classic

    The V1 classic is as close to the perfect racquet as they come regardless of your level. Spin, comfort, power you name it.

    Tentative/Nerves: Help!

    Try this approach for few months till you get used to playing matches: Before your play a match hit on the wall, ball machine or with a hitting partner for one hour or so. If that’s not an option go jogging for few miles or get on an exercise machine. Do anything to get you a bit tired and...

    Found a great hitting partner.......... Me..

    Chris: Your story does not suck I rather find it very interesting. Some of us play tennis not to win matches and compete against others but to stay fit and enjoy hitting. Personally I hit against the wall and ball machines quite often because it is hard to find partners who just enjoy hitting...

    ***Volkl DNX10 MP Review***

    If a racquet is capable of producing spin on one stroke, it should produce spin on any stroke providing you dial the right numbers. I am sure if you tried long enough, the kick serve will come as easy as the slice backhand. This racquet often gets a bad rap for no reason so it is refreshing to...

    Can someone recommend a racquet with more control.

    You could save some $$ if you shorten your swing instead. Oversized racquets do not require a full swing.

    Tennis elbow...advice?

    I faced the same problem years ago and I switched to a VOLKL. I have no loyalty to any manufacturer so my recommendation stems from experience only. Try especially a heavier one like the 10 series. lcw

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 vs DNX V1 MP

    We often get bogged down by perception. It is being said that the older you get, the lighter the racquet. I am over 60 and switched from the V1 to Catapult 10 to the Tour10MP to DNX10MP. I play 3 to 4 times/week and never experience any negative effects from swing weight or racquet weight. I...

    Comparison: DNX10 MP vs LM Prestige Mid

    As mentioned many times on this board, the DNX10MP is a great frame if you are willing to give it time. It is capable of producing any tennis stroke if the string tension is kept low. Don't be afraid to experiment with the low 50's or even high 40's. You can generate plenty of power with short...

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 vs DNX V1 MP

    Lefty: I tried the catapult 3 and 10 and they did not match my game. The V1 classic is a great frame and you can tell because VOLKL tried many times to replace it. Give it a try and if you don't like it you shouldn't have any problems selling it. From the description you gave, did you ever try...

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 vs DNX V1 MP

    HappyLefty: Recommending a racquet over another is like recommending a spouse, you never know:) I don't know your game, your level and your build. Even if I did neither myself nor any tennis genius could recommend a perfect racquet for you. The only way to find out is to give it a try. Good...

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 vs DNX V1 MP

    I used the V1 classic for a while but hit with the DNX V1 MP and OS just to demo. Maybe I did not give them time or the string job was not adequate but they both felt different than the V1 classic.

    NoBadMojo and other Volkl enthusiasts: comparison

    I used the T10VEMP for a while and liked a lot except for the lack of control every now and then. I now use the DNX10MP and like it even better. It has as much power as T10VEMP but with better control. The trick is to string it in the high 40s to the low 50s and give it time.

    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 vs DNX V1 MP

    Personally I think the Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 is one of the most underrated racquets ever. My wife hits with this racquet and likes it even better to the highly touted DNX 9. If you insist on the 1 series your best bet is either the DNX OS or V1 classic.
