Yonex VCore Pro 97 – 330
It should be no surprise that this model is the heaviest of the VCore Pro Series! However, I can’t stress enough the need to demo this racquet and feel what the weight will do for your game!
Of course not everyone will want a racquet of this weight but just trying it will give you some idea of what weight can do for you. Maybe not 330 (unstrung) but a little added weight nonetheless.
That makes the 310 (unstrung) version of this racquet a “standout”, and you can see the review here.
About this racquet, Yonex says “for intermediate to advanced players looking to play aggressively with control and feel”.
To achieve this combination Yonex has incorporated a “lock booster” grommet system that promotes string contact for effecient energy transfer”.
Namd™ graphite fibers are incorporated into the throat area allowing the racquet to flex even under the heaviest of hits!
To top it off Yonex has added a vibration damping mesh in the grip pallet area to filter out unwanted vibrations.
All said, this thin beam (20.0mm) racquet with a 16×19 string pattern is a players dream! So, don’t dream about it…demo it and decide for yourself!
