Volkl Comp Series C9

Volkl is well known for fabulous snow skis.  Anywhere there is snow there is Volkl!  Over the years Volkl has also became a big player in the tennis arena.  For good reason!

The Volkl technology has always been state of the art and maybe a little ahead of the times.  One of the technologies is the “big grommet” system.  This simply allows the string to move from a longer point essentially making the hitting area larger than the graphite head size.  While, I believe, Volkl was the first to incorporate this system there are many others doing it now.

The Volkl “feel” is apparent in this racquet and represents the consistency players expect from Volkl racquets.  “The feel”.  This is a description applied to a few racquets like Volkl and the Head Prestige Series.  “The feel” is hard to quantify but you know it when you feel it!

This racquet incorporates the very comfortable multi component grip pallet system that damps out high frequency vibration adding to the “feel”.

The Volkl Comp Series C9 is the text book straight, thin beam design at slightly more than .830 along the entire length of the racquet.
