    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    I don't even know how it's possible to get elbow pain from this racquet. It's got a 61RA and VDM in the handle. It's about as soft as you can get.

    Totally understandable. My ideal VCP would be 320g with a 16x20 pattern and no VDM. Yonex, you better hop to it! lol

    I hate VDM in any Yonex racquet. The main thing I don't like about the new VCP is the lack of feel because of it. But that ship has sailed it would seem.

    Take those review scores with a big grain of salt. That kind of data is completely subjective.

    The gut/poly thread

    I'm planning to try a Klip Legend/Ghostwire hybrid in my VCP 97H pretty soon. Since GW is a soft poly, are you guy stringing it at a higher tension to compensate? My usual hybrid setup is Klip Legend 1.25 & Max Power 1.20 @ 58/55 lbs.

    Gamma RZR Tac is a lot more tacky feeling than regular Yonex Supergrap. It doesn't feel at all the same, at least when fresh. Pretty sure it's slightly wider as well.

    My current favorite overgrip is Gamma RZR Tac. Does this new Yonex grip feel like that?

    What's the best Yonex string?

    PolyTour Strike (Iron Gray)

    Increase grip size?

    Tends to get slippery and cause blisters.

    Stan Wawrinka Racquet

    Are you genuinely shocked that pros endorse things they don't actually use? The paintjob thing has been going on in professional tennis for a long time. You might also be shocked to hear that even the shoes top pros wear are often different than what they actually endorse. Pretty much everything...

    Stan Wawrinka Racquet

    I love Stan, but could never play with his actual racquet. The thing is an absolute beast. https://tennisnerd.net/gear/racquets/pro-player-racquets/stan-wawrinkas-tennis-racquet/3069

    My wife needs a New Racket - I suspect you fine people can get me some good options.

    Whatever you do, do not get her a Pure Drive. That's only going to make it worse. All things considered, I think a Wilson Clash would be a good choice for her. Also, strings make a huge difference when it comes to TE. So, definitely don't use full poly in any racquet. If you have to use poly...

    Replacement grip to drop a grip size

    To drop a full size Kimony Techni Leather will do the trick. Just be aware it will make your grip very firm.

    Yeah that’s super low for the 97D. I just demoed one from a local shop and the strung SW on that one was 335. I have to admit Yonex QC has disappointed on this release. Really hope they get it sorted out. I know SW is hard to get exact, but there should be an industry standard tolerance of +/- 5...

    What was the SW on yours before adding lead? Seems like swingweights are all over the place on this line. The VCP97 I demoed had a strung SW of only 308 which is crazy low.
