Love it, light weight and good for aggressive play.

Farrukh Raghib
Finest Racket

Extremely satisfied with the quality, weight and balance. The strings were also done exactly the way I wanted.
My game has improved with this. I recommend this to everyone.

Fantastic racket , great price.

Absolute great racket, great balance , very easy to maneuver.
Only thing i felt is the shaft may have a little more diameter than my other rackets.
But absolutely not a deal breaker, this racket can easily take on any $200 racket any day.
Very happy with the purchase.
Thanks a lot Team Volant.

Game changer

I got Rouge-1 and had chance to playing with it. Very light wait, good for hard hitter, hybrid (aggressive and defensive) play and stylish.

Fun, easy to use racket. You won't be disappointed. (4u)

I ordered the racket to be shipped to Toronto, Canada. It was shipped through expedited Australia Post and arrived 12 days later. I paid a small duty and handling fee ($27 CAD). I'm very happy with this outcome as some 3PLs will charge huge brokerage fees when importing goods. It comes with its own sleeve case as well as a Volant stencil.

I'm in my 40s now and my heyday has long passed. I'm trending towards friendlier, less demanding racquets to reduce injury. More importantly, I believe these types of racquets are more fun to play with.

The racquet feels and looks great. As an intermediate-advanced social player, mishits are pretty forgiving with very little vibration in the racket. This might be due to the cushion wrap I used under my overgrip, but I also think that the thicker shaft (7.2mm) helps with this. Either way, my tennis elbow says thank you.

The 4u racquet is very fast. Out of the box it weighed 87g.

I've played about 2 hours (2 matches + warm up, nylon and feathered shuttles). Clears, drives and net play were excellent. The 4u racquet plays a mean front and mid-court game. There is a "cap" to the amount of power you can generate, but I found the power is "sharp" and acceptable to me.

The price / performance for a "Made in Taiwan" racquet is very good with the S1 Rogue. Even more important is that the price includes custom stringing. Many racquets at this price point still come with low quality, factory strings at low tensions (19-22 lbs). I strung it with Exbolt 65 @ 26 lbs to give it a bit more "oomph" to my smash. In Canada, this would have been an additional cost of ~$30 CAD.

I only have good things to say about this racquet. If there is anything, I'd think if you were an advanced player you'd probably have your own racquet preferences. If you play a doubles backcourt game, you'd want something with a higher power cap.

Fantastic job Volant.
