Volkl Organix Super G 8 (315g) customization

#2
Not sure against what level of opponents you play against or what are you missing currently. I used it stock (3.5/4.0 play). Weight at 3/9 and leather grip will be my suggestion if you just want to add weight/swing weight. It's plenty powerful so I would not go crazy with weight at 12.

I regret selling it, great racket.

How did you like serves with this racquet? What do you use now and how does it compare? I have 2 of these and trying to decide between them and my Rf97 as my main stick.

You're pretty much comparing apples and oranges. My suggestion would be to play someone two sets. Play one set with the RF 97 and one with the Volkl 8. Which racket did you perform better with? You can gauge that by the scores. I did the same thing when evaluating the C10 and C10 OS. I loved the way the C10 OS hit, monster spin. But, I win more easily with the regular C10 playing two sets against the same guy.

My serves were "Consistent" with SG8. I could hit very good serves (decent pace and spin) but never monster serves.
I had it as my backup racket after I started using extended length racket. After you have had long break from tennis, SG8 (in stock form) is just super easy to play with.

I now use PK 7G (Have been using extended length for almost 2 years). PCG 100 LB, PK 7G, PK Q+5X Pro all hit better serves than SG8. Part of it is because of extra length.
Out of all extended length rackets I tried PK Q+5X Pro hits the best serves (heavier with more pace -- confirmed by my regular tennis partner). Its swing weight is in 340s.

I would suggest you to get SG8 swing weight up to say 330 and then compare multiple set play against RF to decide on your main racket.

Would a Gamma leather grip and overgrip boost the swingweight to 330 or do i need lead in the hoop?
