    Interesting, thanks. On the flex though.. the blade 104 (2015) is 66 stifness and the VC98 is 65..

    Control strings and setups for Yonex

    Right thanks. On confidential full bed then.. which tension would you use then if you were to move from a Blade 104 tight 18x19 pattern with VS/4G at 53/51 to a Yonex VCORE 98+... ?

    Control strings and setups for Yonex

    I'm moving from a Blade 104 18x19 pattern with VS/4G at 53/51 to a Yonex with 16x19 and I want to be confident that all of the sudden all balls are sailing long on flat shots, which I can easily hit with my own power as I can generate a lot of it.. so comfort and control over power, definitely

    Control strings and setups for Yonex

    Would VS Touch mains at 53 and 4G crosses at 51 be a good option to control high(er) launch angles from a Yonex VCORE 98 which has a 16x19 open string pattern? What has been your experience with control oriented setups on Yonex ? Full beds of RPM Blast, Solinco Confidential, Tecnifibre Red...

    Hi guys! Wanted to hear your thoughts as Yonex fans and heavy-users... so long story short I'm moving away from Blade 104 and Blade 102 to a 27.25 strung at VS Nat Gut 53/Lux 4G 51 (I really like the control of 4G with the softness and power of VS Touch, including how do both keep the tensions...

    Seriously considering Yonex

    Many thanks, you just read my mind so that's what I'm going for and.. good platform to build up for increased HL or stability, if needed. Coming off of both SW 102 and SW 104 strung at VS Nat Gut 53/Lux 4G 51 (I really like the control of 4G with the softness and power of VS Touch, including how...

    Overgrip

    Do you guys know which Yonez overgrips are most similar to Wilson Pro overgrips ?

    Seriously considering Yonex

    @David Le Ezone 98+ - SW is 334, so very close to the 339 of my current SW102.. Vcore 98 + - SW and RA is even higher than ezone 98+ Extended Galaxy VCORE Galaxy Black 98 (305g) LB to 27.25 - SW 332, RA 65 (6 HL) Extended Galaxy VCORE Galaxy Black 98 (285) LB to 27.25 - SW 323, RA 65 (3 HL)

    Seriously considering Yonex

    Cheers. So some folks as well as the TW racquet specialists told me to look into the Yonex extended versions so 98+ and 100+ which I'm really considering... but I want to make sure that whichever I buy I don't end up feeling the same way as the modified SW 102 i.e. too difficult to swing...

    Seriously considering Yonex

    Yes, in the past few years I've been using Wilson 104 and also 102. I guess a typical Yonex 98 could feel / be effective as a non-Yonex 100 frame ? And a 100 like a 102-ish ?

    Right, yes - I guess I'm looking for the "right" extended yonex.. +comfort +maneuverability with +control +stability - not easy task I guess....

    Seriously considering Yonex

    Hi Yonex fans :) so I'm in a little bit of a debate here, sp hopefuly you can help as you all seemed to have had some experience with Wilson and some of the Blades and the less stiffer Clash... So I'm a 45 yrs old club level player, 3.5-4.0 NTPR. Double handed forehand and backhand, aggressive...

    Can I pick your brains please :-)

    @golden chicken I’m finding it much harder to sustain the level of comfort and maneuverability after 30 minutes or so. The racquet feels stiff, cumbersome and only feels okay in the volleys and overheads. When I’m required to put more timing into the shot, on the run etc I always find myself...

    Can I pick your brains please :-)

    The folks at TW recommended the Ezone 98+ .. I’m still a little bit concerned that the swingweight of the Ezone 98+ is 334 (I checked it in here http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage-YE98P2.html - is the 334 the SW figure for the racquet already strung?). Based on my experience with the...

    Can I pick your brains please :-)

    I did that at one point.. the result was that it became too cumbersome, similarly to the experience I'm having with the sw102

    It has a S340 SW so that would be too much? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage-VC98P.html

    EZONE 100+ has 335 SW and 70 stiffness.. the Ezone 98+ 334 / 64 ... compromises, I know... Based on all you guys have been recommending I shortlisted 3 for ptential demo.. Yonex VCORE PRO 100 (300) - I wonder if the 0.5 decrease will actually make any difference in terms of reach, given the...

    Can I pick your brains please :-)

    If it helps, I don't necessarily feel that my arm hurts when playing with the sw102 (nor with the blade 104); I just feel that the sw102 is too heavy and stiff even after being modified; the blade 104 just didn't have the control and stability (which the sw102 has). I can generate a lot of pace...

    Thanks so much.. would there be any Yonex you'd suggest, which I could also take a look at? I was just browsing through what Yonex has on TW and the stifness, sw and headsize (considering how a tad larger it is because it's a Yonex) of this one, looks attractive.... Yonex VCORE PRO 100 (300)

    The Blade 104 I've been playing is this one - I find it a very good racquet, great controlled power, sometimes a little unpredictable if you can generate your own power easily. In terms of flex it's fine, you don't really notice any stiffness, overall a great easy racquet to play with. I played...
