The Volkl V1 heritage lives on in the Power Bridge V1 Oversize. This latest combines the classic V1 Big Grommets and Power Bridge, Volkl's newest technology. Players feel the benefit of Big Grommets on off-center hits. The strings move more freely through the grommets, allowing for more control when the ball strikes outside of the sweetspot. Power Bridge provides more stability in yoke area, offering more power. This V1 Oversize offers plenty of power with minimum effort from all areas of the court. The oversize head is very forgiving, and even shots outside the sweet spot come off the racquet with plenty of zip. Our TW playtesters found that comfort was not sacrificed for power, and the Power Bridge V1 offered an arm-friendly feel. Power and spin were easily found off easy medium swings from the baseline. At net, punch volleys were easy with a lively response from the stringbed. Overall, this Power Bridge V1 Oversize is a solid choice for a 3.0+ player looking for an arm-friendly stick that offers plenty of power and maneuverability.
