Comments: I have been playing with this stick for 2 years now, putting it
back, but always coming back to it. This racquet is a monster with its
100 square inch head size and 16x18 string pattern it simply rips through the ball. I just wish it was a little heavier cause returns of big serves are not ideal. As someone else mentioned it does play stiff and it is not that easy on the arm. Still it is a fun racquet to hit with.
Comments: I got this along with some other demos from Tennis Warehouse and this was the only stick of the bunch I really hated. Unlike most Volkl and/or Boris Becker frames that are renowned for their comfort this stick plays very, very stiff and did not feel arm friendly in the least. This is only made
worse by the relatively light weight and only slightly headlight
balance. I would only suggest this stick if you're looking for
something similar to a Pure Drive or want to lead it up heavily, otherwise I would stay away.
Comments: This stick is sick! With the right tension and string setup, this baby rocks! Combination of weight distribution, stiffness, and beam size makes the plow through in line with 12+ ounce frames. Topspin kicks high and slices penetrate low. Volleys and serves are nasty good. For an open pattern, control was not a problem. Little customization is needed if at all necessary. VIt is very underrated and unnoticed stick because the marketing is not there like the big names. I highly recommended for a demo or purchase before it's discontinued.
Comments: Good frame in stock form but a little tweaking and the racquet shines! Added lead to the 3 and 9 positions and stability and plow are amazing. Balance is about even so good technique is needed to whip it on a short low ball. I had textured poly in the mains and soft multi in the crosses to increase control and soften things a little. Spin is wicked with topspin and slice. Serving was great but takes a little adjustment if not used to even balanced frames. I was really surprised the control this frame gave considering the string pattern and stiffness. Overall, frame is good in stock form but a little customization is needed to take it to the next level.
Comments: I ordered this racquet last year to replace my Boris Becker 11 but it
has too much power for me, I tried to string it with a tension of 55 lbs, and then 60lbs with Head Rip Control string and I still find it too powerful causing my shots to go out. Besides that, the racquet has nice feel, a good weight (it feels even heavier than the Boris Becker 11) and it rips on serve.
Comments: Great racquet. Has the low to medium power I need and wonderful feel especially at the net. Overall it was a close choice between this one and Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour, but I felt this racquet has more feel than the Dunlop frame. I am extremely happy with the purchase.
Comments: Kind of disappointed with this stick, was expecting a little more since it's part of the Volkl family. The feel was comfortable, but didn't care for the balanced weight and shots came off quite awkward at times, lacking control. Very mushy feel. Liked the Volkl Organix 8 better, more controllable power.
Comments: You often hear about how your racquet should feel like an extension of your arm. I had never experienced that before, but I have now since switching to the Delta Core Pro. Previously I'd been hitting with Babolat Pure Storm GT - a very stick but the BBDC Pro has considerably more power. Like others have said, BBDC Pro offers an ideal balance of cushioning and pop. My all-too-frequent mis-hits do not cause twisting or shock vibration - great frame design technology here. I do agree that it plays best when strung to the high end of the tension range for better control.
Comments: Just tested this frame and I have to say I loved it. I have been testing a lot of frames to try and replace my BB10 and this one was the best of the bunch (Babolat PDGT, Volkl PB 8, Head YT Extreme, Pacific XForce). The flex was just about right, not too stiff and much more cushioned than the previous version. I added a leather grip and the swingweight also felt great. I will probably add a bit of lead tape at 9 and 3 to add a touch of stability but I really did not have any complaints with this one.
Comments: This racquet has everything I need. I really, really wanted the previous
version to work for me, but the frame is just too stiff and when I caught a hard shot out of the sweet-spot, it was murder on my elbow and wrist tendons. I returned the '09 Pro (Thank you very much Tennis Warehouse for your generous returns policy) and got this one instead. It is SOOO much better. Very nicely balance of stiffness and vibration management. I have played with it once and I smiled the whole time from how this racquet behaved. Has the Low-medium power I needed (my favorite racquet is the Babolat Pure Storm GT, but it requires more power than I can develop on some games - great for a playing against a strong hitter or when hitting with the wind at my back). They reduced the stiffness just enough to get a beautiful balance of control, power and vibration damping.
There is still room for refinement, but not much. This is close enough for me to be very happy playing with this racquet. I compared this to the Babolat Pure Drive GT, Prince EXO3 Black & Black Team.
Comments: I tried the Becker Delta Core Pro. I had a few rackets here
to play with, and I was quite impressed with this frame. WAAAY better
than the previous version, much more cushiony feeling on contact, and
although I would seriously have to re-game to play with a 100, in an
off-the-shelf frame, this or the Dunlop 500 Tour would be in a close
I did like the new Roddick+, but I just couldn't keep enough in the
court (my frames are TGK237.2's), but again, demos and string and lead
can change a racket from okay to wow!
The Dunlop - so far - is the only larger frame I can pick up and
basically just play, little adjustment. The new Becker Pro would take
a bit of adjustment, but I have a suspicion I might end up liking it
more than the Dunlop.
What I did like was the ability to get away with some shots that would
normally be very tough to make. I could pull a rabbit out of the hat
with the Becker. The string wasn't too bad in the TW Demo, but I could
see this strung up a bit tighter (take away some power but gain the
control) with my Solinco Tour Bite hybrid (and a touch of lead), and
it might dial right in. No idea what was in this one - clear with
silver and blue threads, if I remember right? Nice, soft feeling, good
pocketing, and I also wouldn't mind re-trying it with the same string
strung up 4-5lbs.
A very nice frame, leaving the harsh, older version in the dust. Crisp
and solid, good feel, and actually not a bad swingfeel, even though
it's on the light side.
I'm beginning to see that I'm liking a racket only 2 or 3 points HL,
as my TGK's and former MGPP mids are extra-weighted to heavy up the
head a bit.
Well worth a demo.
