    Best suited racket for Advanced (4.5-5.0) aggressive baseline player

    No, my backhand slice is great with any racket, I can slice with a clash if I have to, it's just automatic. There is something puzzling about wanting lead from these decent swig weight sticks if it is for a slice.

    Did you buy a new racquet in 2021!

    Hey, let me know what you think about the D, I'm using it now and going to buy a Regna 98 as I mentioned. One tip, if you use poly in the D, go under 50 lbs, there's long discussions about this in the HD thread and I think the D has the same string characteristics as the HD.

    Did you buy a new racquet in 2021!

    Yes, I might be buying from them, maybe some Aussie magic will come with it, I love Australia so if I do that I can enjoy thinking about my times there while playing, bonus!

    Nice! I play so often I only have clean hitting days, really, so this might be a great experience.

    :). all in good fun, just thinking about the self-rate singles players in southern sectionals, would beat most of the essential tennis crew, MEP and Ian included. And yes, Ian and MEP are 4.5 players, but the self raters are 4.0. There are multiple tennis "worlds".

    Schmke, this is truly bizarre. I'm sure you know without re-writing how southern was one of the main sections mentioned in the self-rate threads. I hope this graph is a compilation of hundreds of players. If only a few players in each section moved up and down, USTA really missed the...

    2021 Yonex VCore 95

    For sure you know what is best for you, but basically that makes a different racket in a way, not a fan of the Ezone/Ezone tour, blades, or other more head heavy sticks?

    2021 Yonex VCore 95

    I'm not sure, most testers and regular players describe this stick as super comfortable, I do too, but it's not more or less comfortable than the vcore pro line to me (2021), what is getting beat up?

    You guys are waiting to see if you got bumped aren't ya, and you don't want to go up? Come on, go to sleep, play up and for the sake of the integrity of tennis don't appeal. Unless something tragic happened to you health-wise and for that, thoughts and prayers.

    2021 Yonex VCore 95

    I'm a curious cat, for those weighting up this stick, are you sure you are needing this, to me it seems like changing the overall goal of Yonex, the most maneuverable yet stable frame they have, and especially the maneuverability comes through on 1hbh. The 4.5 and 5.0 guys I know don't touch...

    2021 Yonex VCore 95

    Yes, the 2021 is improved. There's a boost in power about 5% that is most noticeable on serves. Personally I didn't experience any compromises despite this increase in power. I only ever carry 2 rackets anyway, so, 2 new 2021 would be cheaper than 4 2018 :)
