Perhaps the most impressive player's racquet to come out of the Volkl stable, the Power Bridge 10 Mid offers exceptional feel and access to spin. The response from this racquet is buttery smooth. It offers that elusive combination of feeling flexible and comfortable yet provides enough mass to also feel solid and stable. The open stringbed offers some nice ball speed off the face of the racquet while also providing excellent grip for spin production. From the baseline our TW playtesters found excellent control. Advanced level players will find they can take a big cut at the ball with this stick and still keep shots well within the lines. The easy access to spin and useful racquet mass results in a heavy, penetrating ball. At net the Power Bridge 10 Mid offers rock solid stability with exceptional feel and control. The soft flex provides a high level of feel on touch shots while the mass helps punch volleys with depth. On serve our testers found an easy swing to produce ample pace and spin. Again, comfort is exceptional and the level of feel helps the server find his or her targets. All in all this impressive racquet is a must demo for the 4.5+ level player even if he/she has not considered a midsize before.
Note: This racquet does not come with a head cover

POWER BRIDGE is an innovative construction that considerably increases the stability of the yoke area of the racquet. This makes the entire racquet more powerful and dynamic. This effect is achieved on the one hand by integrating the high-strength DNX material and on the other hand by increasing the specific material density in the yoke.
DNX is a new unique material structure featuring high-strength micro tube construction that is 25 times stronger than regular carbon fibers. DNX is an entirely new material class whose properties represent the fourth dimension of carbon. DNX has strength characteristics that have never been reached before, a true break-through in material development, now exclusively available in the new DNX Racquet Series by Volkl Tennis.
Sensor Tour Handle System
Includes a two part racquet shaft and TechnoGel surrounded by EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate). This is visible technology you can actually see through the butt cap of the racquet. Designed to dampen vibration without sacrificing touch, playtests seem to verify that the Sensor Handle System does contribute to a more comfortable and forgiving feel.
