    Well, good to hear they weren't a complete disaster straight off the bat! :)

    I must say I am enjoying the 'thud' with the Volkls and not missing the OTT power that seemed to have me sending at least one or two a set into orbit..

    Serving is hilarious, isn't it? WHOOSH, BANG, CRIKEY!!

    What are your favorite string setups for the 95s?

    Can anyone compare the 95D with the Wilson BLX Pro Staff 95?
    I'm currently enjoying the BLX but looking for a little bit more power while keeping this awesome control and touch I get with the Pro Staff.
    People suggested the 95D might be what Im looking for?

    In my opinion the 95d is crushing the ps95 in every category

    Agree with you. which model is Lisicki using ? 2nd Serve ACE on match point at 108 MPH. That is ridiculous. I know top college players in D1 that doesn't hit their 1st serve that big. WTA, 2nd serve at 108 MPH. That is Huge.

    Yes, surprisingly enough Kirilenko and Lisicki made to the quarters.

    It's time for TW to put kerber and Lisicki on Yonex page now, specially kerber, the best player Yonex has a.t.m

    Thanks syke, but i don't have the PM function. :(
    If you were to send it to jeremykohmy@gmail.com it would be very much appreciated.

    i feel the ps95 stock has a lot less power and pop than the 95d. but if you're willing to lead it up, it has lots of potential. i've read many reviews from people who have customized theirs. i don't particularly like fiddling with lead, so i'd pick the 95d.

    The Ps was a solid attempt by Wilson but I have to say that the 95D rocks it in almost every category. My biggest issue with the new PS is the quality control. I've picked up 3 or 4 of them and every one has felt like a different frame even when compared side by side.

    Moving past that, I think there's more stability and free-power in the 95D. Spin is debatable. The PS is a little more user friendly (imo) because it's a little more accepting of strings. I'm starting to find that the 95D is a touch more picky but given the right combination it's great. Stability and Serving would be the two categories I'd say stand out most for my game.

    If the PS were a touch heavier I think it would have been a better frame. As it is, it needs a ton of lead to make it player-worthy

    Pure Greatness of Yonex Vcores. Did you guys see all those shots by Lisicki and Kerber with topspin that just went inside the sidelines and baseline for clean winners. those shots would be impossible with any other rackets.

    I couldn't take it any longer. I found a used 95d on TW and had to order it. It just came in. Weighs 12.2 ounces / 345 grams. However the previous owner put a wilson kgrip on it, so that probably accounts for the additional weight. My crude balance measurements (ruler and edge of table method) showed around 8pts hl. Does that sound right? It feels light. I would have guessed 11.6 (not 12.2). Swings super easy and manueverable (in the office). It feels like it has a lighter sw then my apdgt and my heavier then norm pd. Plan on taking it to the courts tonight. Very excited. Love the weight, balance and looks.

    95s are saved from the sell pile! Tourna products play VERY well in them. I was really skeptical at first because whatever combos I was putting in mine were good but not great. B7 takes the cake. Played a 4.5 match with it last night strung at 48 and was very happy.

    My new (3) Vcore 95D's

    I've been experimenting lately with these racquets and as well as the Yonex RDiS 100MP. Ultimately, these have won out. Thought I'd add my set up and experiences to the thread. Mine are all matched (to the 1/10th gram), then a TW 1.3mm leather grip is added, Wilson OG, and between 5-9 grams of lead added (still experimenting).

    Also still experimenting with strings set ups. My most recent one is VS gut mains with Flex Infinity 1.20mm (white) crosses (52/48). So far so good! I liked RPM Blast 16g at 52/48 as well.

    I can see that one on top has quite a bit of lead tape on the hoop. Is that one out of spec compared to other two? I thought qc was very good with Yonex.

    No, they were all within 1.2 grams of each other and .3cm in balance in stock form. That one with the lead tape was simply the first that I added lead to as a counter to the leather grip. The others received the same (or similar) amount of lead after the photo was taken.

    I'd be interested in hearing what weight you get quoted as the yonex qc is pretty awesome in my experience.

    Hi all. I'm about 90% sure I'll be playing with these in the fall (always need to leave myself an out:)). Love the serve and vollies with this stick which is paramount for me since I primarily play dubs. I'm also a terrible slicer and I can actually slice pretty well with these. The only quibble is I do wish groundstrokles were a little tighter. I do have a few fly long (particularly when I'm on the move) that I don't see see happen in more controlled oriented sticks. This just could be nature of the beast and, of course, user error. I've tinkered around with tensions and have had arm issues in the past, but have been playing well with full bed VS Team 17G at 60lbs. I also put 2" of lead on both sides at 10 and 2. I suppose I could remove the lead to tame the groundstrokes, but it really adds some nice sizzle on serve. Love to hear any suggestions. For reference, I'm an average 4.0 with a poor man's all court game. Love the net, but run into the problems transitioning from the baseline.

    hey 95d owners, i have my 95d with a YY leather, OG, bab square damp, 3g of lead in total, and it weighs 364g. doesn't that seem rather heavy? actually its even heavier than my 89t with 4g of lead (but no leather).

    read this thread again and meags had his 95d with leather and 8g of lead and his came in at 361g. am i missing something here?

    Bab square damps are heavier than Bab O's, yy leather v head leather weight???, I only had half an overgrip ala Stan, Guasquet etc......Im also sure I dropped the weight in the hoop to about 6g too so all in all that seems about right Mykoh.

    hmm head leather's 23g compared to yy's 20g.. will do a weigh of the rac without grips just to see if it comes in heavier than normal. finding the grip shape to feel a lot larger than the tours.. just minor annoyances that is making me like the 89t more. :D

    Unfortunately not. Not too much of a problem for me as I never leave my bag in the car and it's not exactly baking hot in the North East.

    I really do like the bag though. Made of quality materials and has some nice details up close. Keeping it nice and white might be a struggle though. I guess I'll find out.

    Awesome bag. I have the black and red one. No therma guard but I haven't even thought about it. I think therma is overhyped in my opinion.

    Came home with this from the US OPEN. Nothing too special but it's a nice thing to collect as a Yonex fan and keep pinned on my racket bag

    Wouldn't know about the effectiveness of thermaguard to be honest. Never had a bag equipped with it and more to the point, never felt like I've needed it.

    Well, to be honest, I don't think they do much.
    But the boardiness of the thermoguard lining does keep the bag sturdy and upright. Without it, I worried the bag wouldn't keep it's shape.

    We live in the UK. Waterproofing would be more appropriate than thermaguard. :)

    You really are the worst passive aggressive troll I'm seen on these forums. 32,000 posts under your previous Fedace username, a permanent ban, a re-registering under a different username, and yet you deliberately continue to post spam and nonsense.

    I have it for a demo now but so far no where near as nice as my Wilson Tour 95. Is there a club for that racquet, keep getting error on search? I thought id get more depth from it but didn't work. I'm sure it's my form. I agree it's arm friendly. I think 63 is a good stiffness rating if you are arm sensitive.
