I cant test. The best I can do is buy and return and get 75 percent of original price from TW. Its a shame as I would like to demo. Anyway, I will venture with this 97 as I have tried many of the recent Yonex rackets and have an idea what to expect. I was tempted by the Head Extreme Pro and the Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Tour but that is an unknown territory for me. I demoed an Extreme Microgel about 5 years ago and played briefly with a Dunlop 100, thus little experience with those brands. So I went with the Vcore 97 and its advanced technology and quality, we will see.
