This is the season for racquets releases and I just saw some interesting new racquets from Volkl including the Volkl C10 Pro Evo!
You almost feel like it’s Christmas if you’re a racquet nerd! There are so many releases of new frames: Aero, Tfight, Extreme, Wilson Night Session, Osaka Ezone, the ProKennex Ki 10 and now also new racquets from Volkl. The Volkl racquets include a lighter version of the legendary C10 Pro called C10 EVO, which I’m sure will interest many tennis nerds.
There will also be a new C10 Pro and a C10 Pro 25th anniversary edition (only a 1000 made) with the same specs.
We will also see a V1 EVO and a V1 Classic 2022.
Here is an overview:
As I wrote above, there is currently loads of reviews going on. But I’m extra curious about the new EVO racquets, which aim to evolve the legendary Volkl racquets into something more modern. Especially the Volkl C10 EVO is interesting. Let’s have a look at the specs:
|Head Size: 98 in / 632.26 cm|
|Length: 27in / 68.58cm|
|Strung Weight:11.4oz / 323g|
|Balance: 12.99in / 32.99cm / 4 pts HL|
|Beam Width: 20mm / 20mm / 20mm|
|Power Level: Low|
|Stroke Style: Full|
|Swing Speed: Fast|
|Grip Type: Volkl Synthetic|
|String Pattern: |
A true player frame with a 20 mm beam and a low-ish stiffness. The question is if it will have enough power at that swing weight and thin beam profile. On the other hand, there is room for customization. Similar racquets would be the Blade 98 V8 16×19 or the Tecnifibre TF40, but they have slightly thicker beams for a bit more free power.
I’m curious about this one, but the V1 Classic is also a legend with its 102 sq inch head size and good power level.
What is your opinion of the current Volkl frames?
