Originally launched in 2011, the VCORE 100 continues to evolve for the modern game. With its lively and spin-friendly response, this racquet is great for playing aggressive tennis. At 10.8 ounces, the VCORE 100 is weighted for intermediate players, but it should also appeal to the more advanced ball striker in the market for speed. In addition to widening the head above the 3/9 axis (where most players make ball contact), this 2021 update has a lower stiffness rating than the previous two generations, giving it better feedback than its predecessors.
Yonex adds another chapter to one of their most surgical player's racquets. It's called the VCORE 95 and it has been reengineered with a new beam construction and material technology. With its compact head, sub-325 swingweight and moderate stiffness level, this stick combines the traditional virtues of control and feel with impressive levels of speed and spin. In addition to getting updated with a slightly thicker, more powerful beam, Yonex has widened the racquet's head north of the 3/9 o'clock axis, resulting in a more powerful and spin-friendly hitting experience.
Experienced players looking for a spin-friendly weapon with outstanding feel should love this update to the VCORE 98. In addition to providing more control than the VCORE 100, this stick has a tad more mass, resulting in greater stability when plowing through the ball. For 2021 Yonex re-engineers the beam, giving it a thicker cross-section in the head for added power and stability. Yonex has also widened the upper portion of the hitting area, making for a more spin-friendly and responsive contact zone.
