    Yonex Polytour Spin mains Polytour Fire crosses

    Hello fellow tennis friends! I'm seeing a very good deal for polytour spin and I wonder if this string would be a good string to hybrid with polytour fire to allow that extra bit of kick from my shots. For context I string a full bed of polytour fire 1.20 at 50/48 in my vcore 95 and I'm...

    Yonex Grip Sizing - Size Down?

    I'm looking at a VCORE Pro 100 (2021) after years using Volkl / Prince / Wilson (all in 4 3/8, or L3). In hand, the Yonex 4 1/4 (L2) feels and looks like a 4 3/8 (L3). I've also read online that Yonex comes with thinner synthetic replacement grips (1.6mm vs a more standard 1.8mm or 1.9mm). If I...

    Pros actually using Yonex Percept or just PJ?

    Press announcements said Tiafoe and Stan both switched to the new Percept, but are they actually using the new mold or is it just a PJ? I can see Tiafoe switching since he's been using a very similar mold, but Stan's been using the 95D for the last ~10 years and I find it hard to believe that...

    Saw a video on Twitter I believe of Kyrgios training which looks recent. He was playing with a blacked out racquet which has to be a Yonex. Seemed very squared off at 11 and 1 o’clock but wondering what it might be and by the sudden testing of a new frame

    Strings fornYonex Vcore 98 2023 and Ezone 98 2022

    Hi There, Any recommendations regarding the strings for these two rackets? I usually tend to overhit and to overpower so i would like something like a good compromise and balance between effortless power and control. Not too much control yet because i can get quickly tired and this is not my aim.

    Hello! I just switched to the 2023 Yonex Vcore 95 and it plays pretty amazing. A racket that feels like an extension of my hand. Ground strokes are great and so much pop on the serve. The only thing that needs some fixes is the volley. It's not as stable on the volley thus I was going to put...

    What sounds like a smarter choice, VCore 95 or VCore Pro 97 (HD/Standard)?

    I've recently gotten back into the game, and have gotten into some racquetholism.
