    It's now on the Yonex Website! VCORE Pro EMERALD

    I'd say it could be a combination of string as well as technique. I know the EZONE is off topic but I didn't have arm issues with it. Could easily provide a video of me hitting soft tosses.

    Wawrinka's Grip and Over Grip.

    Must be a PJ. :laughing:

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    It was discussed again at this year's Open. The commentators mentioned that Norman had changed Stan's approach from trying to blast everything to just getting the return in play. It's funny how some professional players' returns mirror those of junior players and vice versa. He still needs work...

    Mine came in... Ordered the correct grip size and it came in small. Great. I was REALLY anticipating this frame. This is killing me.

    I'm going to take what you say with a little uncertainty since you're a Liverpool supporter. I guess I'll believe you, though. ;) Getting mine today and I hope the rain passes so I can hit a few balls tonight after my team's match.

    Mine is coming in on Wednesday from my shop. Getting it strung with RPM Blast Rough. I've always wanted to test this string out and since I'll have that string in a VCP 330, I'm going with it at the same tension to give a direct comparison. I'm damn excited.

    Love hearing about the success players are having with flat shots. That is my bread and butter and I cannot wait to get this racquet. I think it's one of my most anticipated frames since the Tour G 330 when I switched from the Ai98. I've had a lot of good play with the Tour G and VCP 330 but...

    Struggling with Vcore Pro 97 310

    Right now I'm using a stock VCORE 98 but I do miss the VCP feel and plow through. I left the EZONE racquets shortly after demoing the VCP330. I'm about to switch to the new VCORE Pro HD. I typically use Poly Tour Pro but since Poly Tour Strike came out, I've been using that. I just picked up...

    This is why I think the HD is such a winner. With what seems to be the perfect amount of weight, slotted between the 310 and 330, I would have liked to see the 16x20 return to this series. 18x20 will do.

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    I'm currently playing mine stock with Poly Tour Fire at 54lbs.

    Placed my order through my shop. Should be able to get hitting next week. I'm thinking of putting Poly Tour Drive at 50lbs and maybe adding leather.

    Luxilon ALU Power appreciation thread

    For me, it seems like silver is more lively and blue is more dead, like in all areas. I actually like silver when it loses tension.

    This is exactly what I was hoping to hear after a short trial with the RF97. I've been using the VCORE 98 for a while but I already left one for my wife to use and then sold another to one of my players. I hope to use this racquet this week.

    Alu Power vs Poly Tour Strike

    What's the verdict here from you guys? I feel as if the latter plays similar to Alu but with a bit more longevity.

    Hyeon Chung Updated VCP

    Has anyone else noticed Chung using what looks to possibly be the real updated VCP? The paint against Verdasco looks to have a matte finish and not a glossy overcoat that most PJs have over a different frame. Might just be me but maybe he switched to the new version. Also, is he using Poly Tour...

    The HD had me intrigued at the start and even more so now. I loved the VCP330 but I would get lazy and it wouldn't benefit me when I wasn't as into my match. When I was, watch out. I know the weight difference isn't huge but it's a small increase to the 310 and it might just be the middle ground...

    Yonex SV 95 (Shapovalov frame)

    I had the SV95 for about 8months and only got ride of it because the paint was chipping horribly and it got to the point where the frame was starting to wear too much. Loved it and I'm hoping the VCORE95 will be a bit better. On the 98 it seems like the paint holds more. I gave my 98 to my wife...

    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    I just got the Black/Orange colorway. I got them straight from Adidas since there was a bit of a wait to order on here. I'll be wearing them to my team's dual match this afternoon. From the initial feelings, I am glad I'm back on the Adidas train. These wrap around my foot similar to Barricades...

    Yonex vs Babolat

    What are you looking for in a racquet? I don't have much experience with 100sqin Yonex frames but I know how good Yonex frames feel in comparison to Babolat. Not knocking Babolat frames but in my experience, they are typically stiffer than most Yonex frames. I'd say that the characteristics of...

    To all (happy) owners of VCore 95!

    I've got the 98 but I've been tempted to get the 95. I've now "officially" switched to a OHBH and I've heard nothing but great things on this frame and its ability to produce sweet goodness on that wing. I am okay with the 98 and miss more 2HBH than I do OHBH, hence the switch. I'm so torn...

    It's now on the Yonex Website! VCORE Pro EMERALD

    I think that this (HD) may be that middle ground some have been looking for between the G and HG versions of these types of rackets. I'm pretty excited to give it a go and see how it handles against the navy VCP 330.

    I'll probably go with the 18x20 and if I don't like it, I'll sell it to one of my players.

    Usually, a gloss finish will indicate the player is using a different mold under the paint. The racket looks to be a matte finish, like the Tour G, Duel G, VCP, and now Emerald. Hasn't been a Tour line in gloss since the red VCORE Tour before the Tour G.

    Yep. I think on the Yonex site it even states 8/23.

    I wish the VCORE Pro would go to a 95. Something about the 95 in the isometric head shape is just right for OHBH; just ask Stan and Shapo. The lineup could be something like this: 1. 97 at 320 with 16x20 2. 97 at 305 with 16x20 (low weight for customization) 3. 95 at 315 or 320 with 16x20 4...
