Comments: I'm trying out the Organix 8 300g. I have arm issues, so I'm not sure if I can play with the frame long
term due to stiffness. I strung it with $3.00 synthetic gut, just trying to see what I thought about the frame, and I love it. It's
probably too stiff for my arm to handle, but I was absolutely bombing strokes. I love the swingweight. It's very stable on
groundstrokes and volleys. I got great spin for the string used. The serve was solid. To just pick up a frame strung with really
cheap nylon and feel like you are playing better tennis than you do with your standard frame and hybrid string of poly / gut tells
you something. This is absolutely a frame to check out. I'll see how the arm responds and then maybe try some type of hybrid
with gut to soften the frame.
Comments: Doesn't swing like a 300g - it feels heftier than that. A very comfortable stick, feels solid
and able to provide lots of power and spin. Performance wise I would say it's on par with Aeropro Drive but Organix 8
is definitely the winner in terms of arm friendliness.
Comments: This thing is so easy to play with it is not funny. The easy pace
and spin is very addictive, with my favorite part being massive kickers especially when string with Savage or Cyclone.
impressive all round racquet.
Comments: This racquet is very comfortable (no vibration), has good directional control(line and cross),
slice and topspin shots. I have tested also another 300 grams racquets (Prince EXO3 Black and Tour, Babolat Pure Drive
AeroPro Drive GT, Head Youtek IG Extreme, Dunlop Biomimetic 500, and Tecnifibre T Flash. I had the best results with
Organix 8 300 grams.
Comments: I demoed this racquet first and it felt good but when my order arrived with my
string it did not play well. I could not control the power of this racquet and when I increased the tension, frame of the
too much vibration that hurt my elbow.
Comments: I demoed this racquet it played nicely even with those cheap strings so I ordered two. That
mistake! I don't know what happened but with my own strings I had a hard time keeping the balls in play. So I increased
tension from 50 to 55lbs to help the control but it did not do me any good as the frame started to vibrate which
aggravated my tennis elbow. I was so mad at myself that I got rid of them both and wasted my money. So new buyers
This racquet has good power but was very difficult to control and if I mishit it, it sent all the vibration to my arm.
Comments: Recently purchased an Organix 8 (300) and have been playing with it for a couple of weeks.

Comments: This racquet was more difficult to control than I'd expected, balls flying long even with the

that's quite good given the listed swingweight. Power is certainly adequate. Of racquets with these specs, I felt I

Comments: Great alternative for baseliners instead of the Babalots or similar
baseline bashing tweener sticks. I found a softer response that surprised me and there's some touch, too. It's great for

Head Extreme. It has a large sweetspot and is very forgiving. The only negative is the slightly heavy swingweight
it has low static weight, so it's easy to lug around the court.
Comments: This is a great modern racquet for today's modern game. My test drive with the stick was
I could hit every shot with pace. The arc of my ball movement was greater but from the baseline my shots landed
they do with my current 18x19 frame. Still, everything felt solid and this is the first Volkl 8 frame since the v-engine
that I like.
That said, it does have a different feel. It is very comfortable and arm friendly but you don't get the same level of
feedback that many associate with Volkl. You still feel the shot and I had my frame strung with VS Tonic @ 58 so I
could hear the
shot too; but the feel is very soft. The new 'thingy' that they place in the handle probably has a lot to do with this. I had
a lot of
fun hitting with this Volkl. It volleys and serves well for me too. Spin is easy and it has good control for 16x18.
Comments: Very comfortable ride, plush, expected from Volkl. I play 4.0 - 4.5 doubles, mostly, and have
using Wilson KBlade 98 for 4 years, but age 40 has me looking for some pop and something more doubles-friendly.
This stick has
plenty of power, yet manageable. Spin comes easy and depth on shot is deep. The Organix material and Bio-Sensor
eliminated vibration to almost zero. Sometimes, it's almost scary to have no vibration (muted?). Rates as a stiffer
racquet, but the
comfort (springboard effect), makes it feel soft. Volleys are deep and easy, good control. Serves have nice control and
again, comes easy with the 16 x 18 setup. The only thing that time will tell for me on this stick will be the 11.4 strung

time to see if
this is in the game plan. Currently, comparing this stick to Wilson BLX Pro Open and Boris Becker Delta Core Pro. Hope
