This old fellah bought this racket after a demo. As with most Volkls, this one is arm-friendly and works all around the court with no weaknesses. If you have the stroke, the racket will help you with a bit of pop and reliable control. Works really well with a medium-speed stroke and you can run them to death. It's also fun to hit at their backhand foot with pace - do not tell a strong young opponent about this racket.
