Yonex delivers an impressive combination of spin, control and feel to intermediate players.
The VCORE Pro 97 (290) swings easier than the 310g and 330g versions, making it great for the rising intermediate who wants easy acceleration. With its thin 20mm beam, the feedback is exceptional. Like other members of the VCORE Pro family, this racket features 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. It also comes with a Lock Booster System, which features raised ridges in the grommet strip for enhanced power. On groundstrokes, the VCORE Pro 97 (290) swings easier than the heavier models, but it still manages to deliver an impressive combination of spin and precision.
The lighter weight will help you execute shots on the run or swing bigger when more power is needed.
The fast feel is also an asset on service returns and volleys where this stick comes around fast to deliver easy targeting.
Players looking for spin, precision and feel without the burden of weight should give this racket a serious look.
