Facts: The Organix technology in this frame surrounds carbon nano tubes with cellulose fibers to create a springboard effect that Volkl claims provides “30 percent more dynamic power and handling.” Black bands at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions contrast with the green head, creating a visual sweet spot. Volkl says this opti-spot feature “forms a visual center, allowing the players eye to focus on the center of the string bed and pay closer attention to the ball.”

Racquet also includes Volkl’s Bio Sensor Bio Sensor grip system—a pin planted inside the base of the handle to actively absorb unwanted vibration.

Impressions: The lime cosmetic isn’t the only striking feature of this racquet. Its 104-square inch head, sub 11-oz. weight, and open string pattern makes power production a pleasurable experience. This is the lighter of two Organix 7 sticks—the 310-gram model is 15 grams heavier and slightly longer (27.3 inches), and is made for stronger players seeking a bit more reach and heft behind their shots.

This racquet's combination of technology of means you won’t harm your arm hitting both flat, hard drives or heavy topspin. Its generous head size and friendly sweet spot makes it a responsive ally on court.
