Added length and some useful mass makes this both a powerful and spin-friendly Volkl offering for the intermediate through advanced level player. Our TW playtesters enjoyed the healthy sweetspot of this racquet from all areas of the court. At the baseline, both depth and pace were easy to produce. With plenty of bite from the stringbed, finding lots of spin was a snap. At net the racquet feels maneuverable but packs enough mass to punch volleys away. The added length increases performance on stretch and defensive volleys while adding some additional pop to overheads. On serve this racquet offers excellent access to both power and spin. Our testers found some added zip on flat serves and some nice hop on spin deliveries. Best suited to 4.0+ level players.
