Introducing the VCORE Pro 100 (300), a user-friendly player's racket that does not skimp on comfort or feel.
This racket updates the Duel G version with a slightly more open string pattern (16x19 as opposed to 16x20) along with some minor changes to the composition and feel. At 300 grams, the VCORE Pro 100 is weighted for intermediates, but it also makes a nice option for the advanced player in search of easy acceleration. New to this version is a substance called Namd, which is a resilient 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 heads. This racket also features a Lock Booster System, which features raised ridges in the grommet strip for enhanced power.
From the baseline, the VCORE Pro 100 offers easy targeting on full swings, and the 21mm beam delivers excellent ball feedback. The 317 swingweight draws a nice compromise between speed and stability, and there's ample room for advanced players to beef up the stability through weight customization. The power is controllable thanks in part to this racket's 16x19 string pattern, which delivers the needed bite for bringing the ball down sharply with spin.
At net, this racket feels speedy on reaction volleys, and there is enough control and feel for dropping the ball short.
Ultimately, this is a great option for the player who wants a light player's racket that combines great feel at impact with controllable power on full swings.
