The Curated Take
The Volkl V8 Pro is designed for advanced players. It is a highly maneuverable racquet with a tight 18x20 string pattern and offers control and a surprising amount of spin. Its 317RDC swing weight facilitates quick groundstrokes and serves with ample power. Despite some inconsistencies with the sweet spot and reduced comfort due to a lack of V-Cell dampening, its customizability with lead tape makes it adaptable for varying playing styles. The V8 Pro is suitable for players seeking a blend of speed, power, and control.
- Great maneuverability
- A big boost on both first and second serves
- Lots of room to customize
- String bed is a bit inconsistent with some hot spots
