330 is definitely more demanding and it takes a strong player with great technique to use it.
My demo 97 310 stick was freshly strung at 52lbs with Babolat Pro Hurricane. The string did not slide back and acted more like a synthetic gut, while my 89t had Golden Set Snake Bite 16g and behaved just like modern polys. The tension on the 89t was 52lbs too.
The Vcore 97 310 was not difficult to use; however, I was able to hit more winners with the 89t in a match compared to the Vcore 97 310. I think the string was what ruined the playtest, so it was not a fair comparison.
