Volkl Tennis Racquets, Known as the the Tennis Elbow Racquets for Good Reason

Volkl tennis racquets feature some of the most advanced technology in tennis today, as well as a line of racquets that that covers all skill levels and other preferences.  Volkl’s have always been known as the “tennis elbow” racquets, because of their prevention in arm injuries due to technology that softens and dampens shock, vibration, and other feedback.  It begins with their DNX technology, which is a super-light as well as extremely strong carbon fiber material that you can find in all of their current racquets.  These fibers are created to withstand maximum force applied at all angles, giving every shot the same feel.  Having this feature in a tennis racquet means you’ll have a consistent touch with every shot, allowing your game to groove to whatever shots you’re hitting.  The DNX technology has recently been improved on, leading us to the current generation of racquets, the Volkl Organix line.
