Introducing the 3rd generation of the V1 Pro, Volkl’s answer to the player who wants a light player’s racquet with a plush feel and precise targeting on full cuts. At 11.3 ounces this stick is perfect for intermediates, but it should also work very well for the advanced player who values easy acceleration. Like the previous generation (Super G V1), the new V-Sense V1 Pro balances excellent control with a surprising level of pop. Volkl gives this stick a Precise Power Beam, which features a slightly less rounded profile for a more classic Volkl feel. The layup has been retooled with C3 Material, a uniquely strong tri-carbon matrix that enables a more strategic calibration of stiffness across the frame. From the baseline the V1 Pro feels instantly arm-friendly. It offers plenty of control and feel, but it also won’t make you struggle to keep the ball deep. Although it is not as stable as a traditional 12+ ounce player’s racquet, the V1 Pro feels impressively solid for its modest 11.3 ounces. Like everything else about this racquet, spin comes easy. At net the V1 Pro never feels sluggish, and it gets the job done on reaction volleys, put-aways and touch shots. Volkl has produced a great update to the V1 Pro. With user-friendly levels of power, control and spin, this comfortable racquet should appeal to wide cross section of intermediate and advanced players.
