    Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD review...

    I'm starting to gel with this racquet more and more. I've now got it strung at 57/55 lbs with PTD and I just added a leather grip to it (Gamma) and man, did it make a difference. This added some more weight to it and you can tell. The grip is also a little bigger than the stock grip that comes...

    Lynx is a bit softer than Hyper-G, just look in the TW University...186 vs 219 stiffness rating. I never got on with Hyper-G and found it to be plasticky in every frame I played it in.

    I feel as if this frame has the flex when there is a lot of force through one's swing. I'm not saying other people here hit soft by any means but heck, even my wife, who was just bouncing balls, could tell it was flexible. I almost wish the 330 had this amount of flex. Flat ball hitters should...

    Wawrinka's Grip and Over Grip.

    You could also trim the end of the grip like you would to match the main grip. I do this and it looks very clean.

    The 330 definitely seemed beefier and more solid than all three. It doesn't flex as much as the HD does and the HD does feel softer. You still get the mass behind the ball with the HD but it is almost like having a 310 weighted up with more flex. I personally feel that the HD is noticeably more...

    Thanks! I did that purposely to make myself adjust to the ball. I do this with players as well as feed from behind them to get their weight shifting through the ball. It is a work in progress but I am enjoying that wing much more now. I suffered from the 2HBH for about 14 years and I had enough.

    Here is my take on the HD, 330, and 310. I give my thoughts and after, you'll see me hitting with each of them.

    I think the HD has a fair amount of flex to it. I honestly feel it's too flexible in comparison to the 330. I think the 330 feels smooth but has that beefy feel at impact that the HD lacks a little of. IMO the HD is an interesting frame due to its specs and how it plays. I actually had another...

    My HD may be up for sale here shortly. I'm really enjoying the 310, y'all.

    So the 310 ain't bad. It's quite stable for being the lighter one in the 97 bunch but I think the 330 wins in that department due to simple physics. The more I kept playing the more I kept going back to the 310. I have a feeling it's because I am so used to the weight of the VCORE 98 but I also...

    Finally got a chance at hitting with this racquet yesterday evening. It wasn't the best of sessions but I got to get a feel for this stick and see how it performs for a bit. This thing is smooth. It's flexible and produces a very good feeling at impact. It's almost DR smooth IMO but has a bit...

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    I think that was my issue with the DR. I was using PTP and not a firmer feeling poly. I ended up selling it like a dummy.

    I'll definitely post my thoughts about all three models and do some head to head comparisons.

    Yonex VCORE Pro 97HD... Strings???

    Putting Poly Tour Drive in my HD tonight. I'll let you know how it plays. I'm also planning on trying PTS and PTP in this frame at similar tensions.

    Logo on Fed's shoe is....?

    Cloud X or Cloud. I've got a few pair of these shoes and love them for when I'm coaching on court.
