Introducing the fourth generation of the Volkl V1 Pro. Like previous versions of the V1 Pro, this update is defined by its great feel and easy targeting. At 11.3 ounces strung, this racquet moves faster than a traditional player’s racquet, while also offering decent stability for its weight class. Compared to its immediate predecessor, this version of the V1 Pro packs a slightly higher swingweight, making it a tad easier to redirect pace or get the ball moving through the court. The signature technology is called V-Feel, which is anchored by a substance called VCell, a light and strong cellulose material added to the layup for improved feel and responsiveness. Volkl has also updated the butt cap with a more advanced dampening compound, along with retooling the VSENSOR handle with a material called REVA for greater shock absorption. On groundstrokes the V1 Pro feels comfortable, solid and slightly muted at impact. Full swings feel precise and predictable, and there is enough spin-potential to bring the ball down effectively. The light 11.3 ounce weight combines with the solid 323 swingweight to help players easily generate pace and depth. At net, the V1 Pro comes around fast to deliver good touch. It also has enough pop to close out points. Aggressive servers will find the needed precision and spin to paint the corners with pace. Ultimately, with this impressive update, the V1 Pro continues to be a solid option for experienced players who want a light player’s racquet with great feel.
