You can't always judge a book by its cover, and the V-Feel V8 Pro from Volkl is a case in point. Given this racquet's 18x20 string pattern, our playtesters were expecting a different playability than they encountered. They were surprised to find that rather than more control, the V8 Pro instead delivered quite a powerful response and good access to spin. Maneuverability was excellent from around the court, and our playtesters raved about the nice pop off the stringbed. Drilling with this racquet felt effortless, but when it came to point play, many were longing for more precision to fully swing out with confidence and hit their targets with more accuracy. Overall, players looking for a more forgiving 18x20 racquet that will still allow them to tap into loads of power and spin should check out this V8 Pro.
