Facts: This is a slightly longer and heavier (15-grams, to be exact) counterpart of the lime green Organix 7 295-gram racquet, which flips that stick’s cosmetic as a predominantly black frame with green accents. This version will work best for players who are a bit stronger, or whose swings are a little longer than the lighter model.

Organix technology surrounds carbon nano tubes with cellulose fibers, creating a springboard effect that Volkl claims provides “30 percent more dynamic power and handling.” Volkl’s Bio Sensor Bio Sensor grip system—a pin planted inside the base of the handle—actively absorbs unwanted vibration providing comfort.

Impressions: You can wield force with feel in this new, 310-gram frame. All courters, doubles specialists, or players with all-court aspirations will get the most from the Organix 7. If you have the swing to whip its 11.5 oz. weight through the strike zone, you should find that this racquet generates easy power, and its open string pattern offers plenty of spin potential.

The distinctive Volkl grip system is more rectangular than some brands, which can help you locate the right grip when transitioning from baseline to net. The extra length can help generate a bit more snap on serve, extend the reach into the doubles alleys, and enable quick players to make defensive stabs. The racquet is responsive from all areas of the court.
