Originally launched in 2011, the VCORE 100 continues to evolve for the modern game. With its lively and spin-friendly response, this racquet is great for playing aggressive tennis. At 11.3 ounces strung, the VCORE 100 is weighted for intermediate players, but it should also appeal to the more advanced ball striker in the market for speed. In addition to widening the head above the 3/9 axis (where most players make ball contact), this update has a lower stiffness rating than the previous two generations, giving it better feedback than its predecessors. 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. In addition to delivering above average stability for a light racquet, the VCORE 100 is great for scrambling on defense or hitting shots on the run. It also offers enough spin and pop on serve to keep your opponent off balance. Ultimately, with subtle updates to the feel and response, the VCORE 100 continues to be a great option for experienced players who want easy power and spin-friendly precision.
