As previously discussed in our Yonex racket guide blog, Yonex is a brand that takes pride in their meticulous eye for detail and unparalleled quality control. This pursuit of perfection has led to the creation of two new VCORE Pro rackets that have been astutely refined into extremely versatile players frames. The VCORE Pro line is the control oriented range from Yonex with the VCORE rackets tailored for spin and power, and the EZONE rackets sitting somewhere in the middle. If you’re an advanced player who values control, then the 2021 VCORE Pros are a must try.
With enhanced flex and a slightly thicker beam, the new VCORE Pro 97 has more access to power then previous editions of the VCORE Pro. That said, it does still retail the excellent touch and feel that the VCORE Pro line has become famous for, some say it rivals the legendary Wilson Pro Staff! The new VCORE Pro line comes in an updated colour scheme with a stylish matt finish.
Despite its relatively heavy 310g weight, this racket still feels whippy though the air thanks to the 310mm balance point, this head light swing weight further adds to the precise feel you get when hitting with this frame.
We’d recommend this racket for advanced players who feel comfortable finishing points off at the net, we found this racket to really excel when hitting attacking volleys.
Endorsed by Stan Wawrinka, the 97H is a heavier version of the 97 frame. Coming in at 330g, the VCORE Pro 97H is more suited to advanced players who hit with a lot of pace and are looking to control it. This racket will also absorb pace well from the back of the court with its increased stability and control. The amount of precision you can achieve with this racket is further enhanced by the dense 18x20 string pattern.
We’d recommend this racket for advanced players who hit a heavy ball but who also value touch and precision.
