New Volkl String - massive spin

#5
Well nice for the players in the USa but this string isnt sold in Europe al least not in my country. Furthermore the older Volkl cyclone strings are, but at much higher prices than in USA which is surely a shame for the European company that Volkl is! :(

Check out this new Volkl string - V-Square.

Tennis Warehouse University String Lab
  • Ranks #1 for bite/grip
  • Ranks #2 for spin
Stay tuned for our full review at the end of May!

These dimension can not be right.
If the string has 2 straight sides of 1.15 mm at 90 degrees than the old Pythagoras rule gives for the lenght of the diameter:
(2*(1.15)^2)^1/2 which equals 1.63 mm. So then you come into trouble while stringing this 16g string. Maybe that why Germans sells these strings only in USA, lol

Look at the pictures. The cross-sections show the edges are not straight lines but more like arcs.

Why do they always make these strings with such fancy crazy colors? I don't get it... any plans for a more neutral color coming out? White? Natural? Light blue, Grey? I don't like these flashy bright colors at all in my racquet, I like classic ones..

I believe the equivalent gauge dimension is not accurate, 1.2 mm diameter is r = 0.6 mm. The surface area of the string is 1.15 * 1.15 or 1.3225 mm^2. Area of circle is Pi*r^2. Backtracking to r ~ 0.64 mm or d ~ 1.28 mm, which is more in the 17 or 16L range. With shaped strings, manufacturers normally also post the equivalent round string gauge. As the string approaches a circular pattern with more sides, the estimate becomes more accurate.

Yes, yes, yes..... how much power does it generate, and how long does it hold tension?
WOW,,, strung up the V-square today,, and it felt so soft. hit only 5 minutes but it is amazingly soft string bed and grabs the ball like crazy. I can't put a full review on 5 minutes of hitting but will report more soon.

I just got done with V-Torque, which only lasted me three hours before it lost so much tension that the control disintegrated. The V-Torque was exceptionally elastic when pulling tension, more so than any other poly string I've used, including Cyclone, which has been my son's go-to string for three or four years. V-Torque probably stretched twice as much or more than a similar gauge Cyclone when pulling 10% less tension.

Is the V-Square the same way? Very elastic and stretchy when pulling tension?

It stretches but not as much as Torque. Importantly it is very easy on the arm... this string was made for guys that doesn't like stiff polys that starts up arm issues. My review below

Review. WOW just WOW,, another great addition to Vokle lineup. This string reminded me of another string. Weiscannon Ultracable which is another 4 sided square string. but this is so much better in all departments. Strung up at 50 lbs on pure Aero 2019.
Incredible grip on the ball with little effort. String is soft so it pockets the ball well and grips the ball for massive topspin. My elbow was sore this day of the test so I couldn't generate my usual high swing speed but even at 70 -80 % of swing speed, string was grabbing the ball and generating massive topspin. Launch angle was fairly high but didn't matter, ball was diving into the court at the last minute. Definitely more Topspin than Solinco tourbite, Ultracable, Alu power, RPM blast.

Control was excellent, however if you mishit the ball, control would diminish. I think this is due to the high launch angle. you guys that hits a huge ball, could string it tighter around 54-55 lbs, you might not have an issue.

Power was pretty good, I would say slightly above average. Not as high as Alu power or RPM blast. but in par with Cyclone, perhaps slightly more powerful than cyclone.

Feel. this is where I have some issues. I didn't expect a really great feel from Square shape string, that's just way it is. but much better feel than Ultracable. Feel is better than it should be cause string's ability to pocket the ball well.

Vibration. this is also the place this string really shines. Very soft and almost no vibration off the string bed. If any of you guys with arm problems looking for a soft poly, you should definitely check this out.

Thanks! Just bought some 18g but I need to write a review for this new Diamond back sidewinder string so it will be a few weeks until I string it up. I’ll probably hybrid it with ghostwire in the crosses since that’s what I’ve been doing for a while now.
