Yonex VCore Pro 97 – 310

Yonex continues to introduce upgrades to the most popular racquets they have produced recently and these new VCore Pro series is a great example of positive changes.

This series continues to be made in Japan and it is obvious in the consistency of their racquets.  The deep Forrest Green and Gold graphics creates a “strong” looking racquet which will appeal to players.

This model is the 310 gram (10.9 oz) version (unstrung)which gains about a ½ ounce when strung and presents a very usable 315 kg/cm² swing weight.  Right out of the box this will suit a lot of players.  Of course a little customization can be done if required.

When looking at racquets it is clear that this Yonex Series all look alike!  A closer look at the head will give you the weight and head size.

The 16×19 string pattern in the Isometric Head Shape creates a large “comfort zone” area and long main strings near the edge of the racquet face which contributes to that “comfort”.
