Hi rigth now im using a prince exo3 tour team, i like a lot this racquet but i need a racquet with more weigth. Im looking for a yonex racquet that can give me a similar performance but more stable, pls can help me?.

My playstyle is a baseliner game, i like To play 2-3 steps behind the baseline but at the same time play with a lot of power and dictate the point.

My main weapon is my backhand that is very powerfull and very consistent, now im in a phase of reconstruction of my forehand that is like a mix of a thiem and kyrgios forehand.
I dont like go To much To the net only for finish the point pls help me with this

Any reason why you prefer Yonex? One option missing is probably the VCore Pro 97 (310) from your list.

If you want to stick with Prince, the latest version of Textreme Tour with Twaron are reportedly firmer than previous iteration and not super soft. Many good reviews on the TT100 (310g) version, and one of the TTW playtesters have switched to it.

Lastly also try out the Wilson Clash or Clash Tour. You might like it.

Your stock EXO3TourTeam100 is pretty evenly balanced, 100 head size and fairly thin beamed. So if you want the closest Yonex to your EXO3, I’d suggest first demoing the VCORE Pro 100 (300). It has the 21mm more traditional beam, 100 sq inches, and is only 4pts headlight. The regular VCORE 100 (not the Pro) has a thicker beam that you sound like you want to stay away from. So if you want to keep the even balance, try some lead on the VC Pro at 3&9 to even the balance and take the final weight to around 12 ounces and see how that plays for your heavier desired weight. The Yonex probably won’t feel as soft as the EXO3, but if you’re convinced you like the Yonex feel, give the VCORE Pro 100 a whack. Second Yonex demo could be the regular VCORE 98. If you’re used to the 100 head, it may be a bit psychologically tough to go down to a 97 or 95. But the 98 may not be even noticeably smaller, given Yonex’s iso shaped heads.

id say vcore galaxy...yonex came out with their own ‘countervail’ lineup...its supposed to jus be different paint job but it definitely feels softer, lots of power/comfort/spin

Wow. Thanks for that interesting observation. I just switched to the red VCORE 98 before the Galaxy black came out. Now I’m going to have to demo the galaxy because I’m not yet in love with the little extra stiffness of the red 98. The extra “crispness” doesn’t feel like it’s translating to any extra control. I’ve played with many weight modifications to my red 98 and think I’ve found the best feeling setup for now. But if the galaxy black seems more comfortable I may like that more. What model(s) of galaxy blacks have you hit? And did you switch or are you still in a year-long demo/search for a holy grail stick like me? Kidding about grail. I should really take lessons rather than buy new sticks but ...
