    Can anyone give me their thoughts for the different variations of the Volkl V1 as a frame that can be used effectively for a 4.5 male player that likes to swing away? I've been using the Becker London for a couple of years, and elbow / wrist problems have kept me from using stiff frames like the Pure Drive. I've read lots of good comments about the various V1's, but the light weight and power level leaves me with concerns. Anyone using it that swings with power and still able to hit with consistancy? Sounds like it is very easy on the arm, in spite of the stiffness level.

    Stew, I put a 4.0 mixed partner in this racquet because of unresolved arm problems. I string it with Tecn X-1 16 at 55lb and she has been playing with it almost 10 years. It has always been known as uber arm friendly and fun to play with. I don't consider it a Tweener and it could very well be a borderline, at best, choice for you in terms of control/but who knows.
