Volkl Tour 10 V Engine

Of all the Volkl racquets I have used, and that is plenty, this model is still my favorite.  I have four (4) now so I don’t need anymore but I am always tempted!

When customers come into the shop and state  “I can not play with a heavy racquet” I put this one in their hands.  This is not going to change anyones minds since there is not enough room in the shop to hit balls but it makes it clear that heavier racauets do not need to feel bad!  In fact most people think this racquet feels really good, as I do.

The combination of weight, swing weight, flex, and grip components make this a very easy racquet to play with for any level, believe it or not.

The “V” in the V Engine is the slightly elongated head.  That little “V” creates longer main strings which will contribute to slaightly greater power potential while the narrow shoulders create control potential.

Take a look at data below to see what I mean.
