I switched to the VCore Tour 97 (330) in July 2012 from the Ti-80 and have not looked back ever since. Compared to the Ti-80 in stock form, it is a lot stiffer and heavier so it did not allow me to customize to my desired specifications. However, after adjusting to a different specification that I liked, the racquet immediately clicked in. The 16X20 pattern provides a more consistent stringbed that compliments the Isometric headshape and the 3D Vector shaft, which rounds out the outer part of the throat makes the racquet feel thinner than the Ti-80, which is a huge plus. At first, I did not expect myself to switch to this racquet when it first came out because it was stiffer than the Ti-80, but I think the Yonex engineers adjusted the layup very nicely to provide a firm playing frame that absorbs harmful shock and provides a clean feel.
