VOLKL Organix 4 with Catapult Effect Tennis Racquet Review
So just how good is the VOLKL Organix 4 with Catapult Effect Tennis Racquet? You know that if it is made in Germany then it must be good. Volkl is a German sporting goods company known for their skiing and tennis equipment, having been making tennis racquets since 1972. Volkl’s trademark technology is DNX. Volkl DNX is a revolutionary material developed in the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany. DNX is made of carbon nanotubes that are both lighter and 25 times stronger than standard carbon fibers. VOLKL tennis racquets with DNX are able to resist twisting better, and increase the stability on off center shots. Volkl tennis racquets with DNX provide maximum stability and power without sacrificing any control.
In Volkl’s continued cooperation with the renowned applied research facility, Fraunhofer Institute, the new Volkl Organix 4 with Catapult Effect Tennis Racquet is the successor to the popular 4 series, combining power, stability, comfort and maneuverability. With an oversized head, and extended length, this update provides good power, while retaining classic Volkl comfort. Numerous changes have been made from the previous PowerBridge 4, with the most significant being the addition of the Organix material. This material utilizes the carbon nanotubes from the DNX lines with a cellulose additive, which provides both stability and comfort. The VOLKL Organix 4 with Catapult Effect Tennis Racquet features a new system of visual cues called the Optispot system, which uses contrasting colors along the inside hoop area of the frame. The idea behind this is that contrasting color ensures that one focuses on the difference, forcing the eyes to focus at the intersection, in the center of the stringbed, which results in more shots hit in the sweetspot. The popular Sensor handle system has been replaced by the Bio Sensor system. Offering 15% more dampening than the Sensor Tour system, the Bio handle is designed after the mass dampener pendulum design that provides protections for skyscrapers during hurricanes and earthquakes. By adding a weighted pin to the end of the handle, a counter vibration is created, effectively decreasing the strength of the incoming shock. Designed for players wanting an extended length racquet with excellent power and stability without sacrificing comfort, the very advanced and versatile Volkl Organix 4 with Catapult Effect Tennis Racquet will perform best in the hands of players with moderate swing speeds.
