Comments: Very good racquet! I love the dampened feel which is very good for my elbow, no vibration at all. I
usually play with the Power Bridge 10 (295 g version) but often switch to the V1 which is more powerful. I do have to use my wrist
to control the power of the racquet (stringed with multi+mono at 27 kg) but when I get used to that, it's fun.

Comments: This is a wonderful racquet. Light, forgiving, great cosmetic. No problems accessing spin. The TW
video and customer reviews are spot on. It truly is the comfort that sells this stick. It's not all that powerful (compared to the 105+
head size options from Prince, for example) so you'll need to bring it just a bit. Turning down the tension 2 clicks from mid-
tension will help. One minor(non)- issue is that with big grommets there is a different sound - almost a muted rattle - when the
ball comes off the strings. So if you're used to the typical auditory feedback when hitting, your ears will need an adjustment
period. All in all, a solid, dependable go-to racquet to build confidence and keep your arm happy.

Comments: I had the Volkl Catapult 4 Gen II before this. I had always felt the need for a little more Power and
Stability. I had the demo for this V1 Classic and completely fell in love with it. It just gave me what I had always been wanted, more
powerful and more stable. I have been using this racket for 3 months now and can see that my game has improved significantly.
My confidence also increases tremendously. Very happy with my switch to this V1 Classic.

Comments: I have for years now been using the ProKennex 5G & PROKENNEX PSI the later weighing 12.9 oz. These
racquets solved my arm problems but as I got older I wondered if there might be a lighter racquet that would also solve my arm
problems until one day I used a friends VOLKL V1 CLASSIC all I can say is WOW!! And I now have had two for 4 months with no
arm problems at all and once I became used to the lighter 10.8 oz. weight my game IMPROVED. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS
RACQUET TO ANYONE AT WHAT EVER LEVEL.

Comments: I just beat someone I couldn't win a set from in the last year 6-0 and 6-3 with this racket. It's simply
amazing. Stable, comfortable, power, control, and light.
