Comments: Just demo'd this racquet Aug 2012, against 5 other mid rackets to replace my
Babolat Aero Drive 105. I had no clue how old any of the models were or even what the cost
for each racquet was, like a blind test. This racquet had insane control, superb feel, and just the
right amount of release from the frame for well hit shots. The only con is the grip is not very
good. It feels like a rubbery garden tool handle, but fortunately there is a selection of over-
grips that will remedy that. Going to buy 2 for the price of $119.00.
Comments: Very maneuverable and comfortable frame. In my opinion, it feels like there is more available power in
this stick compared to the wonderful but muted Volkl V1 Classic. Had to reign in forehands and backhands at the baseline. This PB
V1 MP also packs a wallop at the net. Will
probably keep my string tension high and go with something like the Head Intellitour string.
Comments: I picked up this racquet and fell in love in about ten minutes. I usually demo dozens of racquets and
then narrow it down to three. I knew right away I was buying this racquet after ten minutes though it is a little pricey for me. I did
notice my elbow liked it much better after a few months though I would have continued to use this racquet regardless because it
is such a well rounded racquet. Meaning, it's great for the net, my serve, forehand, and both topspin and slice backhand. Love it!
Comments: I switched to this Volkl 18 months ago as it was gentle on my tennis elbow. I don't know if it was the
racket or what but I have not had tennis elbow now for the last 10-12 months.
Comments: Although the reviews seemed positive, the racquet had little pop. I felt as if I was hitting with a piece of
wood. Maybe it was just the strings, but it felt awful.
Comments: I took a 18 year break and have just begun playing tennis again. My former rating was 4.5 and played
in a 5.0 league for a while. I played with Dunlop Maxply growing up and Wilson Kramers as an adult. I started playing at 10 and I
am currently 67. I lucked into a Volkl Power Bridge V1 at a local tennis shop and bought it after hitting with it for 10 minutes. It
is an extension of my arm and is very gentle on my elbow and shoulder. It is a solid racket and I think it is the best I have ever hit
with. I highly recommend it. By the way, I tried a demonstrator of Federer's racket (Wilson six-one BLX Tour) and almost
immediately had pain in my elbow. I guess it was too heavy for me. I have the strokes to use it, but it did not work for me.
Comments: Due to recent shoulder overuse soreness, I decided to look into a lighter weight stick. I am 52 and no
longer have the stamina to 'work hard' for every point and my swing is slowing down a little. That being said, I decided to demo
this Volkl from TW. I have to say I was skeptical of a frame this light, but I am pleasantly surprised! This is remarkably stable and
solid from all areas of the court. While this Volkl may be a power-oriented stick, the control was actually quite decent as well
(assuming decent swing form). And despite the hugely wide hoop and beam, I was actually getting some nice feel from the string
bed as well. The swing weight felt great for me in my present condition. Price is a tad steep (not sure why-- maybe the gold-tone
paint?) Even so, it seems worth it for the niche of player that I am apparently becoming. I will be ordering one soon! Nice work
Volkl as usual.
Comments: I am amazed at the control and feel of this racquet. I have had no tennis elbow issues and it feels like a
scalpel in my hands. I have played with Wilson Pro Staffs all my life. I am 54 and can't wield the Pro Staff weight like I used to. I
highly recommend you give this racquet a try.
Comments: I switched from Babolat Pure/AeroPro Drive to this one and I have to say this racquet is wonderful. A lot
of power with incredible stability and great control for this kind of stick. I recommend PB V1 Midplus for any club players who
want to enjoy play tennis!
Comments: I LOVE this racquet. Was looking for a racquet that would be more forgiving on my elbow and this was
the perfect fit from the first forehand. Wow, what a difference. Tried many others and this has everything I was looking for and I
have finally retired the brace for my elbow.
Comments: Over the past 2 months I demoed a lot of midplus mid power/mid control racquets--including the
newest Wilsons, Heads, Princes, Yonexs and Babolats. I chose the Volkl Power Bridge V1 Midplus primarily for the dampening,
comfort and ease on joints (I'm 54 and have had bad tennis elbow in the past). Other brand racquets had better pop, feedback and
performance--but along with that came vibration and elbow twinge on mis-hits. The Volkl is a compromise, but it has worked
great for me. (I previously had a Volkl Quantum V1 that I broke and played an oversized Head i.11 for years.) Don't get me wrong-
-I can still get some pop and performance--it's just a bit muted compared to the others. It is excellent at the net for doubles.
(Next time I re-string, I'll likely try a little higher tension--58 lbs?) If you are looking for comfort and ease, include this racquet
among your demos.
Comments: I am a BB V1 mp user and this stick is an excellent upgrade; especially in the comfort and precision
department. If you are having any arm issue (i.e. wrist, elbow) this racquet is for you with no doubt. This baby is my new partner
on the court and I hope it will be for a long time. Maybe I need to rise the tension a bit, just a personal need.
Comments: This is a very reliable frame. I use to play with the old Quantum V1, and it has the "Volkl" comfy feel.
Just seems to be even better with the new technology. I currently use the Wilson KBlade, which I like, but as age is catching up
along with tennis elbow recently, I'm looking to going back to the familiar feel to the V1. Great access to spin, plenty of pop, no
vibration. Great volleys, perfect for dubs, which is pretty much all I play. Control is precise as well. Wonder what some lead tape
would do to this?
Comments: I'm 50, formerly a 5.0 and clawing my way back after a 15 year hiatus. I chose this racquet as the best
compromise of power, head size, weight, maneuverability, and importantly, elbow friendly characteristics. I was having elbow and
wrist pain with under 10 ounce range racquets from Dunlop, Wilson, Head. Tried ProKennex Ionic, but did not like the balance
with its 27.5 inch length. Seems to have larger than average sweet spot. I am very satisfied with its performance and how it feels
on my joints. I'm interested to see what
other players have to say about this new racquet.
Comments: Nice racquet! Demo for a week, did not want to send it back! I liked the oversized better than the
regular even though there is not much difference in sizes. I have used the Catapult 3 and DNX 8 for 2 plus years when I decided I
wanted more power, have been using the V1 Classic for 3 months. Really like the updated model as well. My husband and I both
prefer Volkl racquets over other models. Will definitely consider the new V1 for my next racquet.
Comments: This is a wonderful stick!It is basically a nano version of the Classic V1: very solid and very cushioned. It
is actually more cushioned than the Classic V1, and it
also plays more solid and is more cushioned than the BB V1. Basically,
it does what the Power Bridge 10 did for the DNX 10 and it's
predecessor, the Tour 10 V-Engine; it combined the best attributes of
the two, mixing the DNX 10 with the T 10 V-E--same soft feel, but
better playability. Also, if you are accustomed to a smaller head
size, this will plow-through the ball just as well, which is
undoubtedly owed to the DNX and the Power Bridge tech.
Most importantly, for anyone having any wrist, elbow, or rotator cuff
issues, this is the best stick out there to be able to play totally
pain free. This stick combines the best attributes of the DNX V1 and
the Classic V1 and it is VERY PRECISE. Plus, like the PB 10 Mid
update, you can short-hop balls like Federer and handle high balls
without adjusting your swing!
