Yonex has a real winner on its hands with the VCORE series ...
The VCORE 98 G 305 Tennis Racquet is a terrific players racquet. Its 305 gram unstrung weight is a great balance between providing good stability but also providing good maneuverability.
Compared to the VCORE SV model it is replacing it provides better access to spin, more forgiveness and a softer more comfortable feel.
The extra spin comes from the slightly more open string pattern. The VCORE 98 is 16x19 stringing pattern compared to the SV series which was a 16x20. That one less cross opens up the string bed just a bit allowing the ball to sink in just a bit more to provide that extra bit of spin.
The slightly more open stringing pattern also helps with forgiveness. Yonex's new Namd technology also helps in this department. Namd provides a bit more flex to the racquet in key areas which allows it to respond better.
That slight bit more flex provided by Namd also make the feel of the Yonex VCORE 98 just a bit more comfortable on contact.
As always Yonex's Isometric head provide a larger sweetspot than traditional heads do making them just a bit easier to play with.
If you are looking for a tennis racquet that has a great balance of stability and maneuverability take a serious look at Yonex's VCORE 98 G 305 Tennis racquet.
