Comments: Update #2 -- I wore out the PB4 racquets which I loved, switched to the Super G 4 and like them.
It took me a short time to adjust. They seemed a bit stiffer and with a more rectangular grip, so I customized the grip and
loose fed my strings a bit, and now I really enjoy them. I'm a 5.0 player.

Comments: My husband and I had an experience very similar to Alan's. We've had three Organix racquets
crack -- all in the same spot. One was an Organix 4 and the other two were the 4G model. In two cases it occurred during
stringing by our club pro. In all cases the racquets were less than 3 months old. I love the feel of this racquet and have
always played with a Volkl, but now I am looking for a new racquet. Any suggestions? The extended length is not critical.
I'm a 4.0 player that enjoys both doubles and singles.

Note from TW: I am going to go ahead and let Volkl know about these issues and hopefully they get it resolved. As for a similar racquet, we would suggest giving the Prince Premier 105 ESP a try and see what you think! TW Staff
Comments: In response to Alan's frame cracking, I am a former All-American and Futures competitor and still
train with D1 and tour players. This does not seem like a racquet I could use but I have a bad shoulder and have been
using it for a year. I am coming from the Radical OS which is why I went with a 105. I cut it down to 27" and have a ton of
lead on it to a final weight of 340 grams. I train hard and hit big and I have not had a crack so I am not sure what is going
on with his racquets. This racquet has a lot of feel and is absurdly arm friendly.

Comments: I purchased the predecessor of this racquet (Organix 4) for my girlfriend and within 2 weeks the
frame broke at the spot where the glossy finished "OptiSpot" met the matte finished part of the head. I sent the racquet
back and it was deemed defective. Unfortunately the racquet was being phased out so they replaced it with the updated
version (Super G 4). Within the first 5 minutes of using the new racquet it also broke - in the exact same part of the frame. I
again returned the defective racquet. Before receiving the replacement I spoke with Tennis Warehouse and asked if they
had any information that showed this racquet was more likely than average to be defective. I've been playing tennis for
nearly 30 years and have never had a frame snap in this way. Two in a row seemed an unlikely coincidence. The TW rep
assured me that all info they kept showed that this racquet was not more likely to be defective than other racquets. So I
replaced the defective Super G4 with another of the same kind. It has now been just over two weeks more than a year
since receiving the latest replacement racquet. Today I was stringing my girlfriend's racquet and heard a loud noise as I
pulled a cross-string tight. I thought I had snapped the string but instead found that the racquet frame had cracked where
the "OptiSpot" meets the rest of the head. The same spot as the two previous breaks. What was before an unlikely
coincidence is now an impossible one. There is something wrong with either the design or manufacturing execution of this
Volkl racquet. Although my girlfriend liked the way the racquet played when it was intact I would recommend looking
elsewhere (different frame) for your next racquet.

Comments: Just purchased the Super G 4. Took about three matches to totally get the feel. Now that I have, it
is the best purchase I have made. Serving is great due to the excellent control. Lots of power plus control on
groundstrokes. Very arm and shoulder friendly. I would highly recommend it for any level player. I love Volkl racquets.
From: Phil, 5/15
Comments: I'm a 4.0-4.5 player and I have been long overdue to transition into a modern frame. I was using
original Prince Graphite 107 for a couple of decades, and the newer versions of the frame were not quite the same. In order
a matching pair of frames, I had no choice but to move on. Demo'd everything, from Yonex to Babolat in the 100-107 size.
Yonex Ai series were similar, but I had a very difficult time hitting shots out of position. Until I tried the Volkl Super 4G. The
frame and lighter weight in comparison to my previous frame, made up for some of the lesser physical abilities I used to
my serve. Forehand feels effortless and controlled with good power avail, same can be said for the one handed backhand.
definitely accented more with this frame without depth sacrifice. This frame offered extras to my previous with the least
of adjustments. I'm so glad to have found a comfortable frame that I can probably use for the rest of my life.

Comments: Update: I loved the demo but the swingweight of the racquet I bought was much higher, and the
was inconsistent. It does feel a lot like the Organix 4. I'd like it better if it had a lower swingweight.
From: Carolyn, 9/14
Comments: I have been playing with the Volkl "4" racquets for 11 years. I currently play with the Volkl PB 4.
Organix 4 was ok, but I am demoing the Super G 4 and love it. Very quick through the air; light swingweight, and a little
power (I think, maybe, my 5 year old PB4s are dead). I will be swittching. I'm a senior player at the 5.0 level.

Comments: I completely agree with Anon 2/14. This racquet does exactly what it says on the tin. I have the
and now this one but much prefer the 4. There is more control and better spin by comparison. The power is down which is
better. Don't really notice the smaller 105" headsize compared to the V1's 110". Feel is better yet at the same time less
Volleying and groundstrokes are great. Good kick on topspin and drops well into court. Will try some lead tape but pretty
far -- comparable swing weights. Quite light but not noticeably different to the V1 OS. It's probably that is got more
under the hood than the older V1 OS which just makes it more playable. Suits my attempt at an all round game. Although
is no TW review, Chris Edwards mentions how it performs in one of the TW video blogs on YouTube. I'm a 4.0 using hybrid
-- Tecnifibre Ultimate at 54 lbs mains/52 lbs crosses which provides a good mix of control/power.

Comments: This racquet is exactly like the Organix 4 that came before it. The only difference is in a change
white paint to red paint. This isn't a bad thing since all the Volkl 4 series are very arm friendly, great playing, plush feeling
racquets. The Regular Organix 4, now at half price, is a much better bargain. The Volkl 4 series is a very popular racquet in
Atlanta and is seen at almost every tennis practice.

Comments: Great stick! I normally play with an Organix 8 and really like the Super G version of the 8 (315g). A
of mine convinced me to try the 4 and I'm glad he did! The overall weight is a little light for my taste but the swingweight is
really matters and the one I hit was 312, not too far from the 315-320 that I normally prefer. I've been considering using an
extended length frame for some time as I no longer generate the heaviness that I used to (Note: 47 years old, 5.0 Nationally
player). The thing I've always had a hard time adjusting with the extended length frames is the sluggish feeling getting
hitting zone. The lighter weight of this racquet solves that issue. Extemely solid on forehands and has helped my OHBH
increased my pace noticeably. Serves were the brightspot here; absolute bombs with tons of control. The open pattern
of spin to keep my groundies in the court and the stiffness of the frame was just right. I felt like I could take even the
balls from my opponent and stay offensive with my reply. For those of you at the 4.0-5.0 level give this one a try and I
won't be disappointed! This racquet is not just for senior pushers!
