Like my visor? I got it at the U.S. Open last week.  Now I know what you’re thinking, dogs are not allowed at the U.S. Open; why do you think I’m in this Babolat tennis bag?! It pays to be small… and powerful. Besides, I figured if Pierre Djokovic can hitch a ride on his human’s coat tails and go to Wimbledon, I might as well give it a shot, right? Good news, it worked!!

The simple reality of the thing is that only a gifted player with genius hands and feet is going to be able to maximize the design and features of this racquet. In my humble certainty; there is a very small main market for this racquet. I am sure that with that start, all will be surprised that, this is basically a rave review coming up.

When I was a novice player taking lessons in college, my first racquet was actually a gift. Let me rephrase that; it was more of a hand-me-down. But hey, I thought it was so cool, my first tennis racquet. That was in 1998 and they have come a long way, even since then. I still have that ol’ thing and have used it as a benchmark when reviewing or shopping for others up until the latest and greatest left my little guy in the dust.

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

August 15th, 2012 by Andy

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

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.
