Volkl V-Feel 8 (100) 300g

Manufacturer Part# V18802
SKU: MVVF3
Price: $199.99

The Volkl V-Feel 8 300g really opens up the 100 sq. inch head size with an old-school 16x18 string pattern. The frame weighs 10.6 oz unstrung, and the head-light balance keeps the whippy-fast feel, but at a little beefier weight than the V-Feel 285G. The frame features the tried and true Super-G grommet system to increase energy return.The V-Feel 8 has a slimmer profile than that of the V-Feel 6 with a cross section of 22-24-22 mm. One of the new features with this line include Revolutionary EVA technology which has 35% more resilience, 15% more lateral stiffness, 35% more torsional strength and 25% more shock absorption. V-Cell is a new addition to this racquet which enables more feel and higher frequency. V-Tex is a silicone polymer based butt cap that increases the dampening in the racquet handle while resisting cracking or shrinking in higher temperatures. The V-Feel 8 300G has the makings of a spin machine. The thinner beam cuts through the air with ease, and the 16x18 pattern really grabs the ball. Players who generate their own power, and those that are addicted to topspin will find a great fit in the V-Feel 8 300G. For chronic string breakers who love an open string pattern, we recommend at least a 16g string. Check out the popular Volkl Cyclone string lineup.

Finding Your Tennis Racquet Grip Size?

Fromuth carries tennis racquets with grip sizes ranging from less than 4" for juniors to 4 5/8" for the largest adult hands. This might not seem like much of a range, but the difference even 1/8" makes is surprising. Too large a grip can strain your hand, and prolonged use of too small a grip can injure your hand, wrist, and elbow.


The most commonly used method for finding your exact grip size is as follows: On your dominant hand, note that your palm has three main creases. Hold your hand flat, with the fingers alongside one another. Measure from the middle crease of your palm, up the line between your middle and ring fingers, to a point equal to the height of the tip of your ring finger. For the average woman, this measurement will fall between 4 1/8" and 4 3/8", for men between 4 1/2" and 4 5/8 ". Juniors will usually measure less than 4".


Generally, if you're between eighths when you measure, you'll be better off going with the larger grip. A grip 1/16" too large will be comfortable, while a slightly small one might not. On the other hand, a slightly small grip can be fattened up easily with an overwrap, whereas a too-large grip would have to be shaved down which is not always possible. Overwraps can't fatten a grip effectively more than 1/8" though, because each layer of overwrap adds to the rounding off of the bevel edges on your handle.


For Junior Racquets, exact size matching can be difficult. Often, the best you can do is to get a racquet that's fairly close. For juniors, a grip slightly large is preferable to slightly small both for the reasons stated above, and because they will grow into it.
