This impressive racquet from Volkl offers lots of appeal for both advanced and stronger intermediate players. We found an excellent blend of stability and maneuverability with this one. There's plenty of feel and feedback for advanced players to groove on and our testers found a good connection between player and ball when hitting with the DNX 9. Spin production is both healthy and predictable, allowing for aggressive and confident hitting from all areas of the court. Our testers were equally happy exchanging groundstrokes or charging the net with this stick, making it an ideal choice for the all court player. Players who generate good racquet head speed on serve will find excellent access to topspin and slice, as well as some controllable pace on flatter serves. All in all, this one is well worth a demo for players at the 4.0 to pro level.
Note: This racquet does not come with a head cover
