Facts: This racquet’s near even balance, dampened feel, and spring-board effect provided by Organix technology is designed to create “more dynamic power” and “better handling,” according to Volkl. Its extended length and controllable 331 swingweight delivers benefits on both serves and smashes. The brand’s Bio Sensor handle is constructed to eliminate vibration and enhance playability. Volkl says its OptiSpot paint job—yellow sections at 3 and 9 o'clock that contrast with the predominantly black frame—uses contrasting colors to create a visual sweet spot, helping "the eye focus on the hitting zone."

Impressions: The Organix 3’s open string pattern, thicker beam, ample sweet spot, and extended length should provide plenty of pop and spin potential for players with slow to moderate swings. Stability and maneuverability create a racquet that ought to compete from the baseline, transition from topspin to slice at midcourt, and perform effectively at net.

Versatility, a helpful sweet spot—meant to be extremely forgiving on off-center hits—and smooth response from all areas of the court are among the appealing qualities of the new Organix 3. It’s the tennis equivalent of a luxury sedan ride that can pick up the pace when necessary; a comfortable stick providing controllable power. A classy black-and-gold cosmetic creates a sharp-looking racquet that reverses the yellow-and-black color scheme of prior Volkl classics.
