Volkl updates the Organix 8 (315g) with an even softer and livelier feel but manages to retain the maneuverable and ultra spin friendly response. New to this version is Volkl's Super Grommet System ("Super G") which deploys a uniquely pliable material called V-Sponse. This material, which is also used in the BioSensor Grip Pin, does a great job softening the harsher vibrations from off center impact. It also helps optimize string movement so that the ball can be dispatched with a little extra juice. From the baseline this one plays fast and delivers a lively response. Our TW playtesters found it very easy to control the power with spin. This is one of those racquets that will allow aggressive topspin players to hit well placed spin-loaded balls that jump off the court and make trouble for any opponent. At net the maneuverability shines, making this a great stick for fast exchanges and powerful put aways. On serves this one provides some serious pop and spin on fast swings. Players who like to hit penetrating slices and/or big kickers will not be disappointed. All in all this is a fine update that ups the pop and comfort without compromising the precision of this very spin friendly racquet.
