    Modifying Vcore Pro 97 310

    I have tested a lot with my vcore pro (310 gr.) frames and I agree with you that it lacks some power and mass in certain situations if you're playing with it in stock form. With the right modifications you will be able to transform it to a really good playing frame, but you have to invest some...

    Yonex Poly Tour Strike

    Have tried the Poly Tour Strike (1.25 mm. > grey version) a couple of weeks ago in both my vcore pro (310) and ezone 98, but it was by far not fulfilling the good expectations I had before I played with it. In comparison to my favorite string (Völkl Cyclone) it was giving me to much power and...

    That's exactly equal to my experiences so far ;) Personally I can't understand the people who are still playing with such a high tension weight on poly strings; it's totally not required with the modern poly strings on the market. Some persons are complaining about a certain lack of control...

    Depending to what type of string you're using I assume that a tension weight of max. 51 lbs will be more than enough for the vcore pro since it generates not much power by itself. I have played and tested a couple of poly strings in my modified 310 version and to me it gives the best playability...

    Received the vcore pro 330 dealer demo today and have just weighed it. Overall static weight (including hybride string - alu power soft/Tecnifibre X-One + original base grip with overgrip) = 349 gram I guess that this string combination has a weight around 17 gram, and the overgrip a weight of...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    Today I will receive a demo vcore pro 330 gr. demo from my dealer and I have some serious plans to test it tonight during my weekly training sessions. Despite the fact that I'm completely happy with my modified vcore pro 310 gr. rackets I was still curious how the 330 in stock form should play...

    I don't have experienced problems at all with the vcore pro (310) after some addition of leadtape at 9/3 position upward to the 11/2 position; it's definitely not sluggish but still whipy and very maneuverable. Have added 4 leadstrips of 16 cm length first and that played well with my...

    The Ultra Tour 97 provide some more comfort (more plush and a higher level of forgiveness) due to the more flexy frame, but when it's going about feedback from the frame and an absolute direct feel to your strokes and volleys the vcore pro is a winner !

    With Wilson rackets I used always grip size L3 (4 3/8) and so I do with the Yonex rackets. I just want to advice you to change the origin base grip immediately because it's a crappy one and it feels also very thin (especially after a few hours of playing). With another base grip the Yonex grip...

    I have played with the Ultra Tour 97 and it was my favorite racket for a reasonably long time. In stock form it's in my opinion definetely missing some weight at the hoop and so lacking some stability, and plow through and mass to hit deep and powerful groundstrokes. On the other side it's a...

    Interesting to read your experiences with the vcore pro. I do not know if you're playing with the 310 or the 330 version, but my (first) experiences with the 310 version were similar to some aspects you indicated. When I played with it in stock form it was not really a ''love at first sight''...

    :D To be honest; Solinco Hyper G was on top of my personal favorite string list for a very long time, but that was related to the period I mainly played with Wilson frames. I just can remember how satisfied and convinced I was about the combination Blade 16x19 CV - Hyper G, but when I switched...

    @Mischko Let me first start to compliment your competence to judge someone's strokes and experiences just sitting behind a keyboard of a pc somewhere....:cool: Secondly I can tell you that in the meantime I have played and tested with several different brands of frames and strings to build up a...

    Unfortunately the Hyper-G did not give me what I was expecting.... I had a heavy hitting session of 3 hours yesterday and was able to fully compare the Hyper-G with the Völkl Cyclone 17 G, which is my favorite string for a longer time. The Hyper-G provided a good amount of power, but it...
