Gear Review

The Powerbridge 2 is the ultimate one-up-one-back doubles racquet, whether you and your partner aspire to make the nationals with your 3.0 league or just want to keep the ball in play to maximize your workout. Its great maneuverability, rare for a frame this huge, will have you staving off attacks at the net with the agility and nimbleness of a fencer. While you’re up there, you’ll also find it remarkably stable for an oversize, thanks to its light weight and the strong DNX carbon fibers that Völkl has placed at the sides and bottom of the hoop. The backcourt player will appreciate the racquet’s extra length, which will add leverage to groundies and provide a nice assist on wide shots. The Powerbridge 2 generates controllable pace that will allow medium-length strikers to keep the ball in the court, while the Sensor Handle System does a good job of dampening vibration.

Bottom Line: Its power and maneuverability double the fun of playing doubles.
