Endorsed by Stan Wawrinka, the VCORE Pro 97 (330) is a rock solid player's racket with exceptional control and outstanding feel.
At 330 grams, this racket is weighted for experienced players. It not only provides impressive stability at impact, but it also has enough mass for driving the ball powerfully through the court. This racket replaces the 2015 Duel G version with a slightly more open string pattern and minor tweaks to the layup. Like its predecessor, this stick feels wonderfully stable when trading heavy balls. New to this version is a substance called Namd, which is a flexible carbon material used in strategic locations to optimize the response. Other technologies include Yonex's time-tested Isometric head shape, which is designed to provide a larger, more forgiving hitting zone than conventionally shaped equivalents. Like its predecessor, the VCORE Pro 97 (330) includes a Lock Booster System, which features raised ridges in the grommet strip to enhance power. On groundstrokes the VCORE Pro 97 (330) does not get pushed around when the pace goes up.
Players who can fully deploy this racket's mass will be rewarded with a dangerous combination of precision and pace. There's also plenty of spin to had, which bodes well for those who like hitting heavy balls that drop hard and explode off the court.
At net this racket redirects pace with ease, and there is more than enough touch for dropping the ball maliciously short.
On service returns the VCORE Pro holds steady when blocking big first serves, and it rewards the aggressive returner with piercing depth on full swings.
Players looking for a solid player's racket with great feel should give this racket a serious look.
