Comments: Demoed this racquet along with several others from Volkl, Head, Wilson, Babolat, and ProKennex over
the past few weeks. Needed a racquet upgrade due to my age and recent tennis elbow. Purchased this one based on specs,
control, arm-friendliness, TW reviews, and price. Strung it with a full bed of Wilson NXT at 55 lbs. Next time will probably string it
at 52 lbs. or even less as it felt pretty stiff playing this past weekend. Seems to be a pretty string sensitive racquet. Overall,
pretty impressed with touch, comfort, control and good pop on my serves. Really liked the Babolat Pure Control Tour too as it had
more plough through, better pocketing and felt very comfortable on my arm. Went with Volkl though based on current tennis
elbow and Volkl being deemed an arm-friendly racquet. Definitely need longer swings and ability to generate your own power (6"
2", 215 lbs.) with this stick. Will try and post again after stringing adjustment and I welcome string setup success comments from
others regarding this racquet. My NTRP rating is 4.5 and I'm a former college Div. II player; 50 year old.
Comments: Just demoed this racquet. Currently play with the Babolat APD. This racquet was disappointing. It has
solid feel if hit on sweetspot -- but what racquet doesn't? Off center hits were worse than any racquet I have hit since last played
with wooden racquet. Off center hits literally caused the racquet to twist so badly I had a hard time keeping it in my hand! There
are plenty of other racquets to choose from. Avoid this one.
Comments: Bought two of these two weeks ago. Very comfortable racquet, does not generate spin as well as the
Aeropro Drive, but reasonably well still. Strung it at 53 lbs (recommended by seller) that was way to soft, my shots go 2 meters
long. Should still be an excellent, arm-friendly, racquet if strung at around 56 lbs. I'm a 4.5 player.
Comments: Just bought two of these after demoing the C10 and X10 (295g). I came off of playing with the Wilson
PS 85, after a 15 year hiatus from tennis. My arm couldn't stand the stiffness and vibration of that racquet -- it hurt!! I had been
such a Wilson fan so wasn't sure if I would venture out. A friend gave me his very old Vokl Becker to hit with. While it was much
more power and head size than I would be interested in, it gave me a feel for the more modern racquet. I used TW to research
specs, size, reviews, etc and narrowed it down to just only Vokl given the friendly arm nature of the racquets. I was torn between
the C10 and X10 (325g). The specs are identical but the C10 felt just head heavy enough that I wondered if I could play with it for
long matches. I definitely give a shout out to the C10 though as it is a solid and amazing good frame. In the end, I opted for the
X10. Both racquets allowed an amazing amount of control and power. It is definitely a traditional players racquet with new
technology to give an old fart like me the ability to hit with power and control. I was playing 5-5.5 at peak but am starting off at
4.0-4.5. Am happy to build my game back and the X10 is a solid racquet to do this with. Serves are fantastic but the volleys and
groundstrokes are superb!! I may need to buy more before they discontinue this X10 at this price point.
Comments: I've been using this racquet for almost two years now coming from a Volkl PB10 Mid, Volkl Tour 10 Gen
II, and Head Radical MP. The feel is very different to others Volkl 10 series frames that used to be soft an flexible. This one has a
very stiff hoop but the vibration dampening system is excellent and you wont feel any discomfort on your arm. Huge sweet spot,
very fast response from the stringbed in contrast with the long dwell time of the PB 10, great maneuverability for its weight --
350g with strings, overgrip and vibration dampener and incredible precision and control. It requires a low tension string job, my
favorite is Signum Pro Tornado 1,17 at 52-48 lbs, depending on the season and temperature. The frame shines on slices, volleys
and serves. I've improved my serve a lot with it and don't understand the reviewers rating regarding that stroke. If you have a
sound technique you can place the ball on a dime with any spin you want. Of course this is a Volkl 10 series racquet so it is low
powered and requires long and fast swings and developed strokes but you have 350g of mass to crush the ball. I still love the flex
and old school feeling of the PB10 mid but for competition this frame is much better, allows better defense and you wont lose so
many points under pressure. The only issue I had was a cracked grommet after the first string job in one of the sticks, so you
better get some replacement just in case. I played last week with this side by side with my old Head Radical and the later seems
like a toy. So solid this Volkl is. Recommended!
Comments: I've strung this with natural gut (Babolat VS Touch 16 at 55 lbs). This racquet feels completely different
from any other racquet I've played with. It's difficult to describe, but it feels as though with faster swings, there is less energy
transferred to the ball (more obvious on the serve)! When I slow down the swing, there is a lag between the moment of contact
and the ball leaving the string with good power (I guess this true of any racket but never so obvious for me). In my experience,
there is an optimum speed with which to hit the serve as faster or slower swings does not give the same good result! The accuracy
on groundstrokes is second to none and volleys are great. However, I feel a serious lack of plough through (TWU gives 307 as
opposed to the claimed 317 in the specs page). Adding lead tapes to 2 and 10 o'clock has added some punch to the serve and
some plough through but I'm still experimenting with the customisation. Also, although my good old tennis elbow stays in
remission, I've now developed golfer's elbow -- probably as a result of over-exerting on serve. Least impressed by the racquet's
performance on serve!
Comments: So far I think this is a sweet racquet. Does everything well. The best part is that no pros are using it so
it won't be put to pasture when they only start getting to quarterfinals after they have won 17 grand slams. It's a pretty well
rounded racquet, and the deficit with the flat serve wasn't really there for me. My "flat" serve is a version of the American twist
that is geared toward speed more than say the kick serve version. Spin is the basic principal of each, just a different set up, I
guess is the best way to say it. A "flat" flat serve might be a problem cause it might be hard to really go after the ball without a
way to bring it down into the box. Either backhand is fine with this racquet, enough surface and not to heavy to crank spin for the
two hander, and enough weight and headlightness for the one hander. Good job Deutschland!
Comments: I am a Volkl PB 10 Mid user. I just tried the Organix 10 MP and I have to say its great. Better on flat
serves and my double handed backhands. The sweetspot is so big that I didn't hit a single ball wrong in 20 minutes! If you can
handle a 330 grams racquet, this one is for you. Volkl is a great company and some of their racquets are amazing -- PB10mid,
Organix 10MP, Oraganix V1MP and C10Pro.
Comments: This is my first Volkl racquet and it won't be my last. The first thing I noticed was the solid
construction. It's like you are wielding a king's sword at first. Mine weighed in at 12 oz flat strung. I strung it with VS at 53 lbs and
4G at 50 lbs. I had easy access to spin, great control, and impressive plow through. The new technology in the handle is legit. The
racquet is as comfy as they come. My only complaint was that after a few swings the ball hit the top of the frame on some errant
serves - I think my whole body vibrated after those because of the heft of the frame. My hand was sore later on. My PSLtd and
Speed Pro don't have that effect. But it's more on me dialing in my strokes than the frame. Overall, it's a great racquet and I'm
thrilled to have it in my arsenal of weapons.
Comments: Demoed this racquet long with the Tfight 320, Pro One 97, and Vcore Tour97. The Volkl Organix 10
(325) was the clear winner, and by a large margin. My usual racquet is an IG Prestige Pro, but it was a bit unforgiving at times
and became a handful. The X10 was much less demanding while maintaining similar control, with the added benefit of a massive
spin window and a little more forgiveness on off-center hits. The racquet is an easy swinger with a low (for a player's racquet)
swing weight, yet has plenty of plow-through on my overhead and back hands. Accuracy was like a laser beam and I was able to
pick my spots during match play. Serving was also a high point with the giant spin window making huge kickers a common
theme. I cannot say enough about this frame. I was having to force myself to play with the other racquets I was demoing because
I didn't want to set this one down. Absolute bliss. I cannot believe I've gone this long missing out on this frame. The best
I have ever hit with and in my opinion, one without fault. Breaking out the credit card...
Comments: I was playing with Wilson K factor Six.One 90 and the racquet offered excellent control and plow
through. The only limitation being small head size and higher swing weight which hindered my play at the nets. However this
racquet combines the best of both control and swing weight to give a maneuverable racquet which is vibration free and has got
enough plow through to hit the ball hard. The spin potential is also good. Great stick for all court play. I used to own a Volkl
before so I do not mind the grip shape. In fact due to rectangular nature, once you get used it, the grip doesn't slip/rotate while
Comments: First thing that caught me about this racquet was the stunning look, and the balanced feel of the
racquet really sucked me in for a demo. Straight of the bat this thing was something else, coming from Blades I was after
something more solid and this certainly excelled at everything from spin, power and pure feel. After being a racquet junky (and
working in a tennis shop), this is the only racquet that I will use now, the performance is something that I am yet to find in any
other racquet. Volkl user for life.

Comments: Very good power and control, comfortable, very good string from Luxilon.
Comments: I find the Big Banger Ace 18g stiff even at 52lbs. I've tried lots of strings and these are the first ones to
hurt my arm in over 20 years.
Comments: Went to this racket due to the arm friendly nature of it.
After deciding on a very low stringing tension I have really found this
racket is solid in all areas. The racket plays tighter than it is. I
string with natural gut on the low 50s and normally that would be very
powerful but it isn't with this frame. Take your time and find your
sweetspot as far as string with this racket as it is sensitive to string
choice. Very happy with this racket. Really the complete package.
Serves, volleys and groundstrokes are all solid and plow through is
Comments: My first experience with Volkl and after a bit of tinkering with the string setup, I have converted to the
Organix 10 325 after a solid 3 months of use. The power, stability, and spin generation in this style of racquet is second to none.
I'm getting a much more consistent response off the 1HBH and placing the ball with great precision, and volleying is so solid and
effortless with easy depth. This is a pretty string sensitive racquet and found the best performance with a stiffer synthetic or
multi with high quality poly in the mains.
Comments: Absolutely high fidelity racquet. Super precise with low to very high racquet head speeds; you can really
smack the ball and still maintain perfect control. Crisp at lower speed, comfy with big strokes. This racquet does not wobble, zero
vibrations, even on off-center hits. It produces any spin to any amount you want: fast/heavy balls forehand and 1-handed
backhand (as good as my customized voelkl 10 pb mid 372g, 31cm), loopy defensive curved balls (forget those with the mid), cc
tippy rescue backhand slices, real topspin lobs, spin serves...the whole program. You have to have developed strokes, but you
don't have to stay on the accelerator as with the mid. Easier to play than the mid with a wider range of application/possibilities.
No free power, though.
Comments: I am returning to tennis after 17 years. Thinking I needed something extra, I started with two Dunlop
Aerogel 4d 500 Tours. When I got the feeling back the Dunlop's proved to be too powerful. Compensated with high string tension,
but this killed my arm. Have had a pretty bad case of RSI in my arm over the years. Started testing different racquets; Wilson,
Babolat, and Dunlop. After reading internet reviews I decided to try the Organix 10. 4 sessions convinced me that the Volkl was
the one. Now playing with it for 1.5 months and love it! So much control, such great feel! Can take a full cut at the ball or play
touch shots with great precision. Love the heft of the racquet. Racquet feels much heavier in the hand then while swinging. Open
string bed is a guarantee for great spin. So easy on the arm! I love it! You will need to be able to create your own speed, the
racquet is low on power.
Comments: I have tested about 20 different frames from 300 to 340 grams (Wilson, Gamma, Head, Dunlop, Prince,
Volkl, Tecnifibre, Babolat) and this is by far the best frame I've played for a couple of years. It has amazing control, spin, one
handed backhand slice, power serves, great comfort and feel.
Comments: Stringing this racquet at the low end of the tension range with a softer poly produces a nice blend of
power and control with very little shock. Compared to a Volkl Power Bridge 10 325 strung the same way, control and feel is similar
but with greater power and spin and less shock. I'm in agreement with other comments - longer swing styles and are going to be
well suited to this racquet. if you have fast swings with an aggressive play style and arm/elbow problems, give this racquet a
demo at the low end of the tension range (~50 lbs).
Comments: Wow! I playtested this thing today and I got to say, this is one easy to use racquet. I have not used a
racquet that hurt my arm less than this in a very long time. Maybe not the very best out there but all in all, a nice solid stick.
Comments: I am getting back to the game after decades of only playing a few times a year (arm issues, kids, urban
living, bored with playing). I demoed about ten racquets, including the Head Prestige Pro and IG Speed, the Volkl Power Bridge 10
Mid and Power Bridge 10 MidPlus 325. I almost bought the Power Bridge MidPlus, but had no shoulder pain at all with the Organix,
so I bought a couple of them. I played today and wow! No shoulder trouble at all, period. Great access to spin and my serve kept
getting better as I developed the confidence to start ripping them. Many first serves weren't coming back and that was on clay
against a 5.5 rated player. (I hate clay. Serving is the best part of my game and I had no problem with this stick.) Control with the
Power Bridge 10 MP might be slightly better and some of the other racquets may have more "feel," but this racquet allowed me to
elevate my game, not my access to pain. I couldn't be happier with this choice.
Comments: I am between a 3.5 and a 4.0, and the Volkl Organix 10 325 g is as close to perfect for me as a racquet
gets. In the past couple of years, I have demoed 20+ different racquets from 9 different manufacturers, and bought racquets from
two other manufacturers. This Organix 10 325 gm gives my shots more pace and depth than any other racquet I've played with. It
is a control-oriented racquet that rewards footwork, good form and preparation - in return, it gives you power, plow-through and
pinpoint accuracy. Groundstrokes and volleys go where I hit them, and if I decide I want the next one three inches shorter or
deeper, left or right, that's where it goes. I feel like I've found "the frame" - I'm still sifting through string combos and tensions,
but once I find "the string", I will be fine with having left behind racquets from Babolat and Head. For me, they were good, but this
one is better.
Comments: This stick is not for just anyone. Players less than 5 NTRP should not think about it. This is a very
demanding racquet on swing style (must be long and very fast) on footwork and technique. I'm a clear 4.5 player and I couldn't
handle it against good players such as me. This stick is absolutely not for beginners. You have to be a competitive player and
spend lot of time also in gym to handle this racquet.
Comments: I have been playing with this racquet for about 5 months now. I added a leather grip as the active
damping took away too much vibration and feel. I compensated for the extra head light that the leather grip created with some
lead tape at 3 and 9 o'clock. This made all the difference - much better feel now. The 16x19 string pattern needs to be opened up
a little - it feels more like a 18x20 on this racquet.
Comments: This Volkl is like a Ferrari. Without the proper treatment and technique, it will not play for you. It
handles small and soft play very well though, but when you want to step his tail, you'll feel his stiffness, his power, and control. In
my case i had to adapt to a longer
swing. I'm an aggressive player and i think you need to be for this one. If you don't stay in charge with this racket, you will loose
the control the racket has, but only gives it to you with enough acceleration. Stay patient for it takes a while to get accustomed to.
Comments: I played with this racquet for one hour. I normally play with the Power Bridge 10 Mid. Also, I tested the
Wilson BLX 95 Six.One for an hour. The Volkl Organix 10 generated a lot of great spin. I could flick the ball easily over the net.
The balls rarely were long. This brought me confidence. However, the feel of plough through, the feel of control, of the ball on the
racquet was less than my Power Bridge 10 Mid and less than the Wilson. The Wilson gave me more the feeling of control, gave me
a tremendous backhand, and actually all shots were very good. But, generating spin was much easier with the Volkl Organix 10.
Now, I want the feeling of the ball going through my racquet like with the Wilson and Power Bridge 10 Mid, but I want the spin and
comfort of the Organix 10.
Comments: This racquet with fantastic response and flex. It is a real weapon for medium and high level of
recreational tennis. It plays very lively with a lot of control, spin and comfort. It is also very good at net and by slice shots. It
swings very easy for 350 g weight (with string and overgrip). I was very impressed, so I recommend it to anyone who sees it. I
have now better results than with my former racquet PB10 mid.
Comments: The reviews are accurate so far. This racquet is a different breed of Volkl. I hit with a 3.5 player when I
was eager to test it and didn't like the feel at all. Hitting with a 4.5+ player later allowed me to fully evaluate it. It has a large
sweet spot, good access to power, and fair access to spin (with poly) but the feedback was too foreign and muted for me. I wasn't
sure of where I contacted the ball on the racquet. It's a good entry into Volkl for Prince users--probably the marketing strategy
here. This is a BMW with automatic transmission where prior Volkl 10's are manual.
Comments: After 6 months playing with Volkl PB10mid I bought this racket to have it as a second good racket. My
feedback is positive and now I have some doubts deciding what is my preferred one (PB10mid or X10). The Organix 10 is easier to
play, more power, more spin, better at the net (for me) and with more power on the serve. For my level (not so good) PB10mid is
fantastic when I'm in good shape, but sometimes it is so hard to play with it and to always have the best shots. X10 has not the
same control but it's easier also when you're not in the perfect shape. Now I have a good alternative to PB10mid.
Comments: I agree with former reviews, this is a very unique racket, nothing like any other rackets I have tried
before (and I have tried them all basically). The power from this racket is good, and took 20-30 minutes to get used to coming
from a prestige pro (less power). But once I got used to it, it was brilliant, and really controllable. Control is excellent, spin is great
(although I used TCS string, which is a spin monster). Specs are not really reliable as it swings a lot easier and the 98 sq.inch head
feels bigger, large sweetspot. No pain in arm as I got from almost all other rackets except pb10mid. It was a bit stiffer than the
pb10 but still very soft feel. I recommend this to a 4.5 and above, it's great all over the court.
Comments: Bought from TW a few weeks ago. Bottom line, this is an excellent racquet. Coming from a Youtek
Prestige MP, the X10 325 was easier to swing and is very comfortable and solid but still plush but not too soft like the London. It
has more than adequate power on the serve and I could really crank up my serving stroke and my golfer's elbow would not flare
up like it does with all my other racquets. This is my racquet for the next year at least and I'm going to buy another one.
Comments: I had some trepidation writing this review after reading the first two reviews from players much better
than I am who had drastically differing opinions on the racquet.
Comments: Not surprising that the positive feedback here so far is from players with 6.0 and 6.5 ratings. This is a
demanding racquet and I don't recommend it for lesser players. I found the PB 8 (315) to be Volkl's best racquet the past few
years, but even that can't compare with something like the Exo Black. The Organix 10 has adequate feel, average spin potential,
average pop. Grip shape remains an annoyance.
Comments: Currently playing with the pb10 mid and trying the Organix out for a ride did not live up to my
expectations. The racket played too stiff for my liking, I tried it with full poly, a blend and all multi and I could just not get the feel
that I was hoping for. I spent a week trying to like this racket, but my forehands were sailing long and the swing speed through
contact just did not work for me....I don't think I will be switching any time soon.
Comments: Volkl describes it perfectly - "Due to the explosive springboard- effect of ORGANIX material, frames
More DYNAMIC & POWER. ORGANIX material will be loaded up with kinetic energy during ball impact and releases it back again
immediately." Once I played a set and got used to controlling this explosive power, it was pure magic. Hitting flat, penetrating
shots was a breeze. It took awhile to tame this beast with topspin shots. This is a small 98 in. sq., probably to due its somewhat
elongated shape. The feel is something very different - like a biofeedback machine - you know instantly when the ball
enters/leaves the string bed. Yep - German engineering still rules!
Comments: This one didn't work for me all that well, notwithstanding fairly good control -- but what 98 doesn't
offer good control -- it offered middle-of-the-road spin and feel. Volkl used to make more sense than this; the "targeting
system" and point of using cellulose (everyone wants their products to seem earth-friendly, or earth-derived) escape me. Not a
bad racquet at all but Volkl is starting to feel more and more like what everyone else is selling.
Comments: The X10 325 is just a really unique piece of equipment; its feel is really different. It's like a solid ''ring''
of a racquet head, with a string bed suspended in its middle, cushioning and caressing the ball as it plows through contact. It's
crisp, but still has that Volkl feel; you feel every part of the frame, with no vibration. The transfer to the hand feels cushioned, not
harsh, and you feel everything that the ball is doing. The response is very lively, as though driving the ball with a 93in2. Its ball
quality is also similar to the PB 10 Mid's, and since 98s usually have less plow through than 93s, that says a lot. The X10's power
is also greater than it's predecessor's, it has a little more plow through, and hits with more spin. As with all Volkl 10s, the crosses
need to be strung a little looser than the mains.
Comments: Upon unboxing my preview Organix 10 325 test frame early this month, I immediately rushed to my
bag to compare it to the last iteration, the remarkable PB 10 325. Knocking around some groundies was mildly disappointing to
put it lightly. It was apparent from the get-go that the stability, control, and most importantly the smooth nuanced feel of the PB
10 were all gone. Sadly, having played with this frame the past month, it appears Volkl is departing from their traditional roots
and venturing into new grounds. The Volkl feel that many have known and loved is no longer here. Whereas the PB 10 can be
likened to a scalpel, this Organix 10 is a butter knife.
Comments: Will Volkl come out with a organix 10 mid?
