    Most powerful and comfortable thinbeam (20-21) rackets

    Yes, definitely. Before Vcore 95 I was using a blade 2015 and I didn’t have any noticiable miss hits or off center shots when I switched.

    Most powerful and comfortable thinbeam (20-21) rackets

    It’s a tradeoff for sure going for comfortable racquets you will lose some power. Having a healthier arm for a long period of time is major. Blade V8 16x19 and Vcore 95 16x20. I really like the Vcore 95 and would demo that. It’s 16x20 like the PAVS, still a bit firm but somehow pleasantly...

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    Yup definitely, I’m stringing 3 pounds higher (55 vs 52) with the 97 but I knew I had to string higher before comparing it because of the open pattern. 16x20 on the 95 is actually more dense than blade 18x20 for example. Once you string higher control will be similar. To put it in context from...

    2021 Yonex VCore 95

    For Yonex it’s a bit far off by 4 grams. And since stock its slightly unstable (but not like its predecessors) those 4 grams its lacking could make it feel a bit more flimsy. In any case, I would add 3 grams 3/9 to compensate. Once you add lead its night and day at least in my experience.

    Battle of the 95' - Help me out!

    I would go with the Vcore 95 hands down. It’s much more forgiving than any other 95.

    Which generation of Blade is the best?

    2015 is the best IMO

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    Yup I do, someone mentioned 1 gram increases SW by 5.5 points on this racquet but it isn’t exactly the case for me, but close. Already measured with SwingTool and of course a calibrated machine. Surprised how accurate Swingtool, it’s was off by 1 point in all my measurements. Anyways, with the...

    I mean of course for some it needs more stability but I think it’s already stable enough, just needs plow.

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    Updating my experience between VC95, VCP97 and 97D and adding to @Tranqville’s post: For me it’s not a clear winner between VC95 and VCP97 they both are great so it’s difficult to chose one (I can’t keep both). I’m switching to the VCP97, I’m just in love with the plush feel. Having said that...
