It looks mean and plays mean - the super light Volkl Super G 1 packs a serious punch

Racket review: Volkl Super G 1

Originally published on 25/09/15

Twinning the explosive power of its Organix cellulose-graphite construction with the sweet spot recoil of its distinctive free-floating Power Arm, the all-new Volkl Super G 1 was the most powerful racket among those tested – and that’s some feat, considering it was one of the lightest offerings in our review.

Nearly an inch longer than the standard 27-inch frames, the huge head makes framing a shot something of an achievement. Hitting the ball deep is a breeze, while injecting a little pace into your strokes is rewarded in spades if you still plan on packing a punch while protecting your arm.

FEATHERLIGHT AWARD

Volkl Super G 1

When it comes to the Super G 1, less is most certainly more – particularly in the power stakes. The unique Power Arm design simply catapults the ball out of the middle of the stringbed, and while the payoff is a dulled sense of feel, there is plenty of spin potential from that wide open string pattern. It looks mean. It plays mean. This featherweight packs a serious punch.
