Yonex Vcore 98 305 gram 2021 Tennis Racket
Players looking for a spin-friendly, control based frame will love this latest iteration of the Yonex VCORE 98.
In addition to providing more control than the VCORE 100, this stick has a tad more mass, resulting in greater stability when plowing through the ball.
The Yonex VCore 98 features a fantastic new cosmetic and some new technology updates. This 2021 model has seen the racquet head widened above the 3/9 axis and the frame stiffness reduced giving players a more comfortable feedback on ball contact.
New technologies include Flex Force, which uses a uniquely flexible graphite (NAMD2) in the lower hoop/upper shaft to help the racquet bend more optimally at impact. Yonex has also redesigned the grommet system with String Sync, which utilizes funnel shaped inserts to help the strings snap back powerfully during impact (think spin). Additional technologies include a Vibration Dampening Mesh in the handle for added comfort, along with several aerodynamic features that reduce wind drag for easier acceleration. On groundstrokes, the VCORE 100 not only packs surprising power, it also has enough spin-potential to bring the ball down hard.
