Yonex VCORE PRO 97HD 18x20 Tennis Racquet (Matte Green) in Grip Size 4 3/8 Strung with Purple Synthetic Gut Tennis String (Best Racquet for Players with a Full Stroke)
The Yonex VCORE PRO 97HD 18X20 Tennis Racquet adds maximum control and feel to the VCORE PRO family. At nearly 12 ounces strung, this stick is weighted for the experienced player who is looking for a stick that doesn't get pushed around when the pace goes up. With its dense 18x20 string pattern, thin 20mm beam, 59RA flex, and compact 97 square inch head, this racquet has surgical precision and phenomenal feedback. For this generation of the VCORE PRO franchise, 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 integrated into the handle to reduce unwanted vibrations for a cleaner feel. On groundstrokes, the 97HD combines a buttery feel at impact with mindless control on full swings. It also has a near 325+RDC swing weight, making it good at redirecting the pace of big hitters or driving the ball through the court. Although it's not the fastest or most spin-friendly racquet in the VCORE PRO series, experienced players will have enough speed for hitting shots on the run or whipping up effective spin. The 97HD comes around fast for the weight to deliver good depth on block volleys. In addition to feeling impressively solid at impact, you'll have the needed touch to hit droppers and sharp angles. On service returns, you'll have the mass to redirect the pace of a big first serve, with enough precision on big cuts to stay aggressive. With the addition of the 97HD to the VCORE PRO family, Yonex has given experienced ball strikers the surgical precision and seductive feel of a traditional player's racquet.
