As the lightest and fastest member of the VCORE PRO family, the VCORE PRO 100 (280) is perfect for the intermediate player who wants a maneuverable point and shoot weapon with great feel at impact. It should also work for the dedicated beginner or strong junior who wants a solid performance racquet that will help them keep more balls in play. Although not quite as stable as the VCORE PRO 100 (300), this racquet's speed will enable you to react quicker when under pressure from an attacking opponent.
For this update, Yonex implements an Improved Throat Design, which combines a thinner and longer shaft with a lowered throat, resulting in more torque, dwell time and spin-potential. Also new to this series is a Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM), which is fully integrated into the handle to reduce unwanted vibrations for a cleaner feel at impact. Like the previous generation, this update benefits from a material technology called NAMD, which is a uniquely flexible carbon material used in strategic locations to improve feel and increase energy return to the ball.
The VCORE PRO 100 (280) is fast, spin-friendly and accurate, with a comfortably solid feel at impact. The quick handling will not only help you scramble on defense or execute shots on the run, but you'll also find it easier to react quickly at the net and on service returns. All in all, with its great combination of speed, control, and spin, this comfortable racquet is a must demo for rising intermediates who want to add more control and feel to their game.
