    I just love that paintjob^^.
    Could you tell me if it has a constant beam width or does it gets thicker at the top like the tour 97 or ai 98? And do you know the stiffness of the tour g?

    Also looks like you have Yonex PTP 125 in there, have you hit with it at all yet?

    Edit: I just saw a side-by-side in another thread, and the the new VCORE & old VCORE do look different:

    You think this is what is supposedly making the new VCTG more flexible?

    It'll probably flair out at 2 and 10 because of the MICRO Core technology. And the G is supposed to be more flexible - that's Yonex's marketing claim for more spin because you have more dwell time. Marketing spin.

    I have no idea, but after giving the old one a go last spring, only to give up after 4 months, I sure am interested.

    Overall, I enjoyed the VCORE Tour (310), but just could not dial in my forehand, so I went back to my old frames. 8 months later, I'm looking at it again. I feel like an abused wife...

    As well as the split bumper, look closely at the black grommet under the throat just below the Yonex font.
    On the retail Tour G count the mains running through the black part of the grommet below the throat and you'll see there's 8 of them:

    Now count the number of mains running through the black plastic on Stan's actual racquet and you'll see there's 6 mains running through it:

    Stan is using the 95D.
