Racket Review: Volkl VSense V1MP
I couldn’t miss at the net with it
This model is light and effortlessly powerful
In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces The VSense V1M was not aesthetically pleasing to our testers, Jem and Elliot, given that its grey appearance lacked ‘wow’ factor.
However, if we take a look at the on-court characteristics, ‘effortless power’ was a term banded about by both Jem and Elliot. Given the sizeable head size at 102 square inches, it allowed the testers to generate extra bite on their shots whilst being able to maintain consistent control.
While Elliot was pleasantly surprised with the model being light, forgiving, balanced and less bulky to hit with than it looked, Jem raved about his net play. He said: “I couldn’t miss at the net with it. I hate coming to the net but I don’t mind being at it with that racket!”
Both testers were impressed with this model highly recommended it to intermediate players as they felt it ticked many boxes.
