Offering tons of versatility with a nice blend of attributes, the Organix 8 provides effectiveness from all areas of the court. Using a springboard effect, the lightweight yet strong Organix material in the frame adds more dynamic power and stability. Our TW playtesters found a nice combination of power and control when hitting from the baseline. A headlight balance and 11.4 ounce static weight make swinging this racquet quite manageable, yet remains heavy enough to offer a stable response. At net, the large sweetspot is forgiving, offering good depth with volleys on a consistent basis. The open string pattern allows nice access to spin, creating good kick and control. There's plenty of power on reserve as well when looking for the heater up the "T". All in all, the Organix 8 is a well rounded stick that is effective from all areas of the court, and can be beneficial to a wide variety of player. An excellent choice for the 4.0+ player.
