Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD
Have you ever wanted to play with a Yonex Pro racquet but really want a 18 x 20 string pattern? Well your want’s have come true! The new Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD is that racquet and it is here!
The great new green and gold cosmetic creates a “menacing” tool for your game. This is a “thin” beam racquet measuring 20.0mm through out the length which results in a flexible racquet. That flex combined with the “mesh” material in the grip area should make this a comfortable hit with just enough feed-back to be helpful.
The 18 x 20 string pattern, thus the “HD” designation, makes this a control oriented racquet allowing for massive strokes for increased ball rotation. The “HD” should contribute to extended string durability but if this raacquet suits your playing style string durability is not top on list of considerations!
Yonex says “For advanced players looking to play aggressively with added precision, feel, and stability”.
