Yonex VCORE PRO 97 (330g) Tennis Racquet (Matte Green) in Grip Size 4 1/2" Strung with Green Synthetic Gut Tennis String (Best Racquet for Baseline Players with a Full Stroke)
Yonex is has updated one of the most popular frames on the pro tour with the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 330g Matte Green Tennis Racquet. The racquet shifts to a matte green color scheme from the previous version's dark blue. The manufacturer placed a new technology in the handle of the VCORE Pros called Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM). The stretchy mesh material bonds well with the graphite under the grip to minimize vibrations by 30%. Namd returns in this version of the VCORE Pro and enhances the flex of the racquet throughout the throat for a powerful and dynamic response. The Lock Booster system is an improved grommet design that promotes string contact for better energy transfer and spin generation. At contact, the strings "lock" against the ball for aggressive, attacking spin. The engine of the VCORE Pro is the Isometric head shape, which enlarges the sweet spot for more forgiveness on off-center hits. The VCORE Pro 97 330g is just over 12 ounces strung and features a 16x19 string pattern stretched over a control-oriented 97 square inch head. The head-light balance is fast through the hitting zone, and the thin 20 mm beam adds a high level of mobility. If you were a fan of the previous version, the new VCORE Pro 97 330g greatly enhances the comfort and feel. This model is endorsed on tour by 3-time grand slam champion Stan Wawrinka and is the most stable racquet in the VCORE Pro family.
