    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    fwiw my 2 VCP100 are both at 320 pts swing weight. Its whippier (less chunky) than VCore 100. Not sure about Ezone 100, since I havent played with it. My VCore 100 was similar swing weight, but VCP100 is probably less polarized and has thinner frame

    Comparison: Head Lynx Tour vs Mayami Tour Hex

    assuming you tried both Lynx Tour 1.25 and 1.30 - is there a big difference between the two?

    Round poly with low power and good feel and tension maintenance?

    Yeah as I said, I currently play with Head Lynx Tour and like it very much, except the sharp edges, so I am willing to trade some of the ball bite for predictability. So far from looking at the TWU string database the Tourna BH Silver looks the most promising. Only thing puzzling me is that...

    Round poly with low power and good feel and tension maintenance?

    ideal would be round, but as long as the launch angle is predictable, anything goes

    Round poly with low power and good feel and tension maintenance?

    Looking for recommendations for a round(ish) poly string that holds tension well, is low-powered, but not dead-feeling, has low launch angle and good control. The racquet would be Yonex VCore Pro 100 - pretty soft with quite open string pattern, so I would go with 1.25-1.30mm thickness. I like...

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    ok yeah, my VCP100 are both at 320-322 pt swing weight without any lead. At first I thought it wont be enough for a good plow on 2hbh, but the leather grip fixed that problem. I have played my first tournament with this setup and they play heavenly. Had to adjust the serve motion a bit though.

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    so how does the VCP100 play now? I am also currently trying a leather grip on my VCP100. First impression is that it helps a lot with stability on the backhand side, especially when slicing. But serving requires a bit more effort

    Insoles for turf toe?

    thanks for the tips, I since went to see a foot doctor and the diagnosis is merely a hallux valgus combined with duck walking, which leads to overload on the ball. The duck walking is probably due to the lordosis, so I am going to address that first

    Insoles for turf toe?

    Hi all, I seem to be having some sort of turf toe. The motion range is not limited, but there is some pain on active extension and clicking/popping on flexing. The pain mostly comes after playing on carpet. Clay is mostly ok, although I think I got the initial injury after a bad slip on clay. I...

    Yonex VCore Pro 100 (2021) vs EZone 100 (2022)

    just curious, what made you switch back to VCore 98? I have only tried previous all-black VCore 98 and I think the current VCore Pro 100 plays very similar to it

    2021 Yonex VCore Pro Official Thread

    So I have stumbled upon a good deal on the VCP100 and took the bait. I havent tried the Ezone 100, but the VCP100 sits just between Ezone 98 and VCore 100 on the power/control scale for me. Very comfy and whippy, easy to play, with good solid feel. Mine has exact same specs as measured by TW and...

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    I strung up my VCore 100 with the YPTS in the mains and the Pro's Pro Intercept 1.30 in the crosses and it has been perfect during the first hit. Very comfy (for a poly) with very good feel and not too much power. To me its indistinguishable from YPTP. We will see, how long it will last, but the...

    Head Revolt Pro 4.0 vs Revolt Evo 2

    How is the fit of the revolt pro 4.0 versus 3.0? I had the 3.0 and they were just a bit too wide in the toe box. Do the 4.0 fit the same?

    Vcore 100 vs 2022 Ezone 98

    Have both racquet, although my Ezone is the 2020 98L weighted up to the DR 98 specs. Pretty huge difference between those two racquets. Ezone 98 is whippy, requires super fast strokes and has much lower launch angle. The Vcore100 is a lot more stable, has way more plow and larger sweet spot. I...

    Hybrid yonex poly tour spin and yonex poly tour pro

    yeah Zidansek looks like she's also rocking the Ruud setup with PTP x PTS

    Hybrid yonex poly tour spin and yonex poly tour pro

    I used this hybrid combination once, but imho Poly Tour Pro is not the best cross string for us hobby players due to how quickly it loses tension and bags out. But if you can restring yourself after every 8-10 hours of play, surely its one of the best all-purpose setups out there. I for one...

    MSV Co Focus and Co Ultra

    Only tried Co Focus and Poly Tour Pro and they are not similar at all, except they are both round and smooth. Co Focus holds tension way better, but also has the unpleasant dead plastic-y feel to it. Poly Tour Pro has a soft rubbery (in a good sense) feel with very good feedback, but loses...

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    nah, its fine. Head Hydrosorb is heavier than Yonex' stock grip. If anything your Radical maybe underspec. Strings and overgrip surely weigh more than 16 grams
  19. M

    Is this the new Radical pain job?

    that would be funny. I mean Head did go back to the almost exact copy of the G360 Speed paintjob for the Auxetic generation, so there is that.

    Which Yonex is closest to G360+ Speed MP?

    The VCore Pro 100 was impossible to find used and I got a good deal for the VCore 100 and went with that - basically got two VC100 for the price of one VCP100. I am pretty sure Vcore 100 is as close as you can get to the Speed MP. The notable differences: Vcore is stiffer and has a tighter...

    Yonex VCore 98 vs VCore 100

    yeah, with the VC100 you always need the topspin. The transition from Ezone 98 took me few months and I am still not very comfortable when I just have to slap a sitter from around a service line. Will give it more time, because the backhand and second serve is much easier with the VC100.

    Anyone play thick mains and super thin cross?

    Yeah I know, but using it in crosses with a thick round poly in mains should result in a moderate launch angle, no?

    Anyone play thick mains and super thin cross?

    hijacking the thread with almost the same question as OP - I have got almost half a reel of a 1.10mm shaped string from the days when I was playing with a very dense stringbed. Now I have switched to Vcore 100 and would like to use up the 1.10 in a meaningful way - any suggestions what to pair...

    Demo advice

    the last VCore 100 plays very similar to Speed MP 360+ and hits a very similar ball. VCore is a bit more stable off-center, more maneuverable and has more control and less pop.

    Pro's Pro Strings!?

    Had to order a starting clamp from pro's pro, so decided to get their strings too - went for Interceptor (1.30) as a budget alternative to the YPTP. Of course its not even close to YPTP. Its round and soft and the color is similar, but thats it. It definitely does not have the soft but crisp...

    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    yeah, the grip (even different string type and gauge) totally can sum up to 6g difference. Yonex grips are ones of the thinnest and lightest. Besides that, balance and swing weight are way more meaningful indicators of how the racquet plays. If you can measure the balance, you will have a better...

    Tweeners for better players?

    IMO for the tour level hitting you need impeccable footwork both for tweeners and control frames, but as you put it, with tweeners you need it to add shape/spin to the ball and with control frames you need it to get a good depth. It all probably boils down to individual preference of the...

    Very short durability (2 hours) on soft multi hybrids?

    you want to have slick and round string in the crosses to enable mains to slide back and forth. Power Rough is not slick, so it will wear down the coating on the multis quickly, the friction will increase and the stringbed will lock up.

    Hybrid Launch Angle

    I tried all the combinations and to me multifilament in mains with poly in crosses has almost the same launch angle as full bed of poly. Also its almost as comfortable as the full bed of multi, so you can get the best of both worlds. The only downside is durability, but if the racquet's string...

    Yonex Ezone 98 2022 vs Ezone 100 2022

    Tennisnerd got ya: To me it seems like the 100 is a better fit for you ("baselineplayer, hate netplay"), but why not take advantage of the TW testing programm and test them both?
