Comments: Really liking this frame. I have played with the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick for the last 7 years and was
looking for something new with similar specs. This racquet is very maneuverable. I'm a 4.5 aggressive baseliner with a topspin
serve. I can serve and volley, but tend to work my way to the net with ground strokes. Spin production is very noticeable and I play
with a lot of topspin anyway, but this took it to the next level. Seems very controllable -- especially on my 2 handed backhand.
Still working on the forehand side as the lighter swing weight (from PDR) is taking a little time to adjust to and I might add some
lead, but debating this as the racquet feels great in your hand without and I'm hesitant to change the balance. Volleys are a joy
and serves are good as well. The red with bright yellow graphics looks super -- one of the best looking racquets I've seen in
awhile. Stiffness rating is high, but it doesn't feel stiff and there is no arm issues. I strung mine at 52 lbs with Cyclone and took
the dampener out -- in my opinion it doesn't need a dampener as the built in handle system seems to do the job just fine. Also,
without the dampener I got great feel. Will play test this a while longer to see if it works for my game, but overall I'm impressed.
Comments: I have been playing with Babolat Pure Drive for the last 8 years. I got a tennis elbow in the last months
and the Volkl Organix 8 Super G (315g) was recommended to me by the guy at the club pro shop. I demoed the racquet and found
a lot of similarities with the Pure Drive with a very clean sensation when hitting the ball. It is a Pure Drive with more power
especially on topspin and slices. I feel that it is slightly less forgiving than the Pure Drive when you hit a ball that is not centered.
Smooth on the arm as I felt less pain after playing than with the Pure Drive. All in all this will be my future racquet.
Comments: I have been playing with the Volkl Power Bridge 10 Mid the past 4 years, but I am now 47 years old 5+
player and my vision and eye-hand coordination isn't good enough to handle the fast pace of the heavy hitters I often face; so in
past two years I have being hitting a lot more frame shots than usual and I have being trying to block a lot more balls, which is not
what the 10 Mid is for. One of the pros in my club told me to go for a racquet at least 98 in. with an open string pattern and after
quite a bit of research I bought this Volkl Organix 8 Super G (315 gr). I have it string at 55 lbs to let the racquet do the talking, but
with a soft and control oriented string since the frame is rated as stiff and powerful. All can I said, after just a month playing with
this racquet, it is a game changer; you can hit with power, control, top-spin, slides and even propel some nice flat shots, it does it
all. The only thing you cannot really do is go all the way full force with the flat shots like I do with the 10 Mid, but you can go for
control flat shots to change the pace and then rip a top spin in your next one and see the face of surprise from your opponent
it. I have been tempted to increase the weight but I don't want to mess-up the near perfect balance; and to tell the true, I played
with a couple of heavy hitters and none have made a dent on the racquet, I block balls back effortlessly and kept them in the back
the court, so this frame needs no additional weight. I will come back in 4 to 6 months to comment about this racquet after I can
really get used to it, I am also planning on reducing the string tension a notch or two since the control is amazing taken in
the power it has.
