    It looks like Monaco is swinging around a new PJ of these Yonexs.

    PS.: AFAIK only a PJ update like the one for the RDS 001s way, way back.

    The paint job or camera angle makes it look more square than the old one, or maybe it is more square like the tours?

    The color-blocking lines remind me of a RDiS 200, but with red instead of orange.

    Vcore 95 was one of the best yonex's ever produced IMHO - hope they don't screw it up this time around

    Will that be in the U.S. for outside the country ? Yonexusa has been mum on the new rackets.

    source?

    Do you know anything else?

    Perhaps if the 95D will be changed to a 94sq" following 98-97 & 90-89 difference?

    Do you know what Moncaco is holding? Doesn't he play with 98 and should switch to the 97...

    It's facebook of Japanese tennis magazine. I guess they heard it from Yonex staff at Toray PPO

    Thanks for the info.

    Why would they come up with a range with racquets 1 sq" difference, released 4 months apart...

    Is there any information regarding the update to the 95D?

    ^^^ Not that I can tell by any of the links that I have found for information. It appears that they're just making changes to the 98D & 100S. The 98 is going to have several configurations and the 100 is going to have a lightweight version. That's just strange because I already consider it pretty light.

    I wonder if they're going to drop the 95D, as it isn't listed with the other Vcore's? That would be a travesty, hear a lot of positive reviews of that frame.

    They're on two branches of the VCORE line. One is heavier with more tour-like specs. The other is a friendlier, easier racquet for the club player.

    You may want to demo the 97T first. It's weight is significantly different from the 98D.

    Remember there will be a difference in rackets made in China and Japan. I generally purchase rackets made in Japan. It's their better line of rackets. Just my feeling.

    If you check their website they let you know which rackets are made in Japan and China. The top models are made in Japan.
