Strung up my 2nd one w/ the exact same setup as my first, but added a leather grip.
  • Stock w/ Yonex Super Grap, Yonex dampener, RPM 17 = 347g/12.2oz
  • Leather grip added = 356g/12.55oz
Will hit w/ the leather grip one tonight. Doesn't feel overly heavy when swinging through the air, but definitely came in higher than I expected. Was expecting around 12.4, like my modded Prestige MPs
I kind of was in the same boat, decided to just use putty in the butt cap for the time being. Might change to leather grip later, we'll see.

(Posted this in the string section earlier, don't know if it is OK to post it here as well, but thought it might be of some interest to readers considering to buy this stick.)

Had my first hit with the 97HD yesterday, thought it was absolutely wonderful. I had it strung with Yonex Poly Tour Pro, the black color, at 46 lbs, gauge 16L. I'm not trying to contribute to the hype of this racquet, but I had a whole amount of power. Spin was really, really good as well. Suprised me a lot. But I was getting good swing speed. No discomfort during play or today. The racquet with that setup feels like the way to go.

I usually need a week or two before I start to like a racquet, but this was great from the beginning. I am coming from Pacific X Tour Pro (weighted up at 3 and 9, leather grip), with alu power rough. Before that RF97A with CC, and before that the Ultra Tour with CC. Never could get along with the Ultra Tour, the frame felt way too weak, even weighted up. The 97HD felt much more solid and powerful, but with great depth and directional control. Played it stock and can't imagine I will change anything (and I usually put a leather grip on all my racquets).

So yeah, I'm a fan.

Finally got a chance at hitting with this racquet yesterday evening. It wasn't the best of sessions but I got to get a feel for this stick and see how it performs for a bit.

This thing is smooth. It's flexible and produces a very good feeling at impact. It's almost DR smooth IMO but has a bit more flex to it. I've currently got Poly Tour Drive in it, and it feels very good in this frame. It lacks a little power but with the extra SW, you get the plow through to help put balls away.

Keep in mind that I'm coming from using the VCORE 98 for a few months.

For an 18x20, it can produce a good amount of spin. Hitting slice and touch shots is great with this stick. You can put your weight behind it and hit low slices with some pace to keep your opponent on defense, hitting it short for you to attack. When I wanted to impart topspin, it handled well. I wouldn't knock this frame for being unfriendly in the spin department. People have to realize the type of frame this is and how it manages spin. After all, it is an 18x20 racquet.

I want to see how the 330 and 310 work in comparison to this stick. I enjoyed the feel of this frame but I am really curious to see how the others stack up against the HD. I will keep you all posted and maybe even provide a short video of me hitting and talking about these racquets. I've never been able to hit with the 310 of the Tour G, Duel G, or VCORE Pro. I have a feeling I've been missing out since I enjoy the 310 weight but like to have a fair amount of control compared to the EZONE and VCORE 98 frames.

That's basically the same setup I'll be going with. YPTP black 16L @ mid to high 40s. Glad you like that setup.

So the 310 ain't bad. It's quite stable for being the lighter one in the 97 bunch but I think the 330 wins in that department due to simple physics. The more I kept playing the more I kept going back to the 310. I have a feeling it's because I am so used to the weight of the VCORE 98 but I also liked the feel at impact. The demos are brand new with PTP. I am assuming these are at mid tension or maybe a touch lower.

The 330 is of course a good feeling stick with the plow through to wear down your opponent. It's got a little more pop than the HD but I feel it's due in part to the 330 having a 16x19, more mass, and slightly less flex. The 330 is a beast of a racquet. I had a small stint with the RF97 but it was a bit too cumbersome to wield for two out of three sets. I don't play as often since I coach mainly.

I'm still unsure on the HD. I'm not at all saying I'm unsatisfied but it's going to take some time to get used to. I almost feel like I should have gone with the 310 and then demoed the HD and 330. I'm really enjoying the feel at impact but I feel it's too soft with the current string and tension. I'm a bit surprised at how the PTD plays in the HD. The 330 and 310 have PTP.

The 310 does a lot of things well and my timing was on. I could alter from 2HBH to 1HBH and time the ball well to continue to rally with my opposing hitting partners. I really enjoyed hitting with it. I'm going to keep messing around with these three but I'm actually quite surprised at how much I enjoy the 310. I thought the HD was what I have been missing out on but it seems the 310, which I've never hit with, has been the stick I've been missing.

Unfortunately i'm a 5'8" skinny guy. 20g more weight is too much unless I switch to a flat slower paced game.
I want a stick that allows 3 straight sets of top spin game at 90%+ effort.
Even my under spec TT100 310 is annoying me since I can't get the same RHS and timing vs. my stock VCP 310.

Demoing all three, HD with multi is ok, but with a gut/poly hybrid might be a serious challenger to the Blade v7????

A bit random but I see on twitter that Yonex partnered with Darren Cahill. Have a feeling he might like the 97HD.

And +1 for slice backhands with this stick btw. Played a match last Friday and that shot was mvp for me. Stronger opponent would have handled it better, but I was impressed with how low I was able to keep the ball.

Backhand slice is an important shot for me as well.

4 weeks in and I'm still loving the HD. This is all anecdotal, but I feel like I'm serving bigger, with more spin and accuracy. My kick serve occasionally even kicks a bit sometimes. Might just be improvement overall, but the racquet ain't hurting me. Same goes for all shots really. I'm hitting many more forehand winners, and it's a joy to volley with and hit overheads. I dropped the weight just a touch, so am now at about 350, and that seems perfect. Still trying to figure why some say the sweet spot is small. I haven't experienced that.

I also had great sucess with the bachand slice using the HD. The ball launched back with pace and some nasty spin. Forehand drives became my second favorite shot.

I'd be interested to buy one or two of the HDs, perhaps, but I live in Sweden. The shipping would make it pointless.

It's up now.

Pretty much have it narrowed down between the HD and 330. Just gonna have to demo both. I had a duel g 330 and loved it. Excited to demo the HD.
That was my dilemma. Same 2 choices. i went with the 330. Probably because I have been playing with the 2018 Version for a year and love it. I tried hard to love the HD but i just kept going back to the 330. review is spot on though.

I demo'd the Vcore Pro 97HD today. I own the 310g Vcore Pro 97 for comparison.

No way is the 97HD 59RA. To me it feels exactly the same as the 310g which is 64RA. By no means are either stiff racquets, just the 97HD is not as flexy as the 59RA suggests.

Does anyone else have the same experience?

Anyway, I really like the 97HD. The 10g extra weight I am enjoying and it doesn't feel too heavy. I felt like I had great control with the 97HD. It came strung with Yonex PTP.

I have the racquet for a week so I am going to restring the demo as well as one of my 310g with the same strings at the same tension to get a better comparison.

The thing is, the HD swings so fast that you could probably beef it up quite a bit and not notice a drastic difference in how quickly it comes through.

I have my gut and ptp coming in on Monday, so my plan is to restring with that and see how it feels. Depending on how that setup feels I may or may not add more weight to it.

I have had the same experience regarding the feel. To me it feels slightly softer than the 330/310 which are around 65RA. Initially I was a little disappointed by the feel just because I was expecting a much softer response with the 59RA, however after hitting with it more since the first outing I am actually starting to really appreciate the HD, it maintains the overall feel/response of the VCP 330 which has been my go to frame for the last two years, but adds some additional traits. I find it easier to flatten the ball out and the backhand slice is awesome with the HD, I had no issues with the slice using the VCP 330, but the HD takes it to another level. I hit the backhand slice quite a bit having a one handed backhand, and will probably switch to the HD for that shot alone.

Curious, has anyone managed to get their HD on a RDC to confirm the 59RA?

I haven't added any lead to the frame, I did add a leather grip. I am around 350 grams strung with over-grip and dampener.

I also found the frame to have surprisingly good pop, my first string job was Yonex PTP 1.20 @ 42. I have now restrung it with Yonex PTP 1.25 Graphite @ 46. I think I actually preferred Yonex PTP 1.20 @ 42. Only had one outing with the Graphite setup, had 4-5 sessions with the 1.20 setup. I think the 1.20 setup had more spin, bite and pop overall.

Overall I am really impressed with the frame. I now need to decide which frame I like more, the Blade v7 or the HD.

Regarding the flex, I would say HD feels pretty flex-y. It's no noodle, but I can feel it the flex when hitting the ball, not as much as with something really soft like the Head Elektra (sub 50 RA), which is a bit like a slingshot, but definitely more flex than my Ultra Tours.

I think the HD has a fair amount of flex to it. I honestly feel it's too flexible in comparison to the 330. I think the 330 feels smooth but has that beefy feel at impact that the HD lacks a little of. IMO the HD is an interesting frame due to its specs and how it plays. I actually had another go with it last night and I think I'm going to up the tension.

Just picked up my demos excited to try them out after reading all your feedback. Let's see if one of these pull me away from my DR.

I have demoed both. I liked the pop and comfort of the v7 Blade, but found it sluggish. The HD had less pop, no matter the spec sheet, less comfort, but it was far more maneuverable. I could get more action on serves with the HD, but the flat and body serve with the v7 Blade... so, it depends on what you want from the racquet.

That's a pretty darn good review - in alignment with my experience so far.
can someone tell me, their review is based on average of all scores correct?
to me, the power is a bit subjective some prefer; less some prefer more, e.g. 93p power is less so I think that brings down the average.
am I right?

Here is my take on the HD, 330, and 310. I give my thoughts and after, you'll see me hitting with each of them.

Great hitting and video... much appreciated. It's always harder to hit BH when the ball is coming towards your body at that angle so you did a great job. Looks like the OHBH is going well.
 
@achapa8807. Thanks for uploading the video! Just from your video, I could certainly tell the 330 just seemed to hit a bit heavier ball compared to the HD and 310. I was wondering if you felt like the HD 18x20 launch angle was any different than the 16x19 on the 310 / 330? It appeared that the HD string pattern wasn't noticeably more dense than the 16x19 pattern on the other frames.

Was the HD noticeably more flexible than the 330? The stiffness ratings are very different for the HD and 330, but most people have commented that the HD seems to play stiffer than its stiffness rating might imply. Would appreciate your thoughts.

I play with a 320 gram (unstrung racquet). I can handle it and swing it fine, but I certainly can't do flick shots like I can with a more maneuverable frame. I have hit with the 310 and found it swung very easily. Did you find that the HD swung noticeably easier than the 330 or anything of note you can recall? Does the 330 feel sluggish by chance?

I appreciate your reviews. I hopefully will get my demos in this week. I'm slated to try all 3 of the same racquets you just demoed, and I hope to make a final decision soon. My elbow is certainly looking forward to a softer frame.

Thanks! I did that purposely to make myself adjust to the ball. I do this with players as well as feed from behind them to get their weight shifting through the ball. It is a work in progress but I am enjoying that wing much more now. I suffered from the 2HBH for about 14 years and I had enough.

The 330 definitely seemed beefier and more solid than all three. It doesn't flex as much as the HD does and the HD does feel softer. You still get the mass behind the ball with the HD but it is almost like having a 310 weighted up with more flex. I personally feel that the HD is noticeably more flexible than the 330. The latter feels like a tank, just completely solid. I could easily game the 330 due to having played the previous generation before trying out the VCORE 98, a racquet I've been using since selling the VCP 330.

I'd say that the HD is pretty maneuverable. Honestly, all three are but the 310 being the best due to weighing less. I don't think the 330 feels sluggish in any way but again, that is probably due to the fact that I know how it plays and feels. I did have a small stint with the RF97 and that frame is definitely more sluggish than the 330 IMHO. Thanks for the feedback!

I cannot deny that I hit the ball harder, with more accuracy, and consistency with this racquet than I ever have. I do think that part of it is that I'm coming off a plateau and actually improving as a player, so it's not all racquet, but I really love the feel on contact, and I can swing freely and keep it in the lines, which is pretty awesome. So much good action on the serve, and I've always struggled with that (good kick or slice). I notice it most with my weekly doubles group, which has a good mix of strong 4.0 and 4.5 players. In the past, I always felt vulnerable against the 4.5s, especially when serving, but that's starting to change. syngut mains with poly crosses (50/46) is working beautifully.

So I might be imagining things, but I was also thinking that I've hit some of my biggest forehands ever with this stick.

Take this from a low 4.0 player though.
 
So I finally received my demos of the 3 various iterations of the VCore Pro 97 (310, 330, and HD), and I was able to hit with all 3 tonight. Here are my thoughts and experience so far with the frames.

The 3 frames all feel very similar- you can definitely tell they are part of the same "family". Differences between the frames are fairly minor, and are more a product of the weight differences between the frames than anything else in my opinion. If I had to describe this family of racquets, words such as comfortable, stable, consistent, and easy to swing all come to my mind. I would characterize these frames as low powered and control frames, but do not let this deceive you- these frames can all hit the ball with pace and spin- they will put out what you put into them, but they aren't going to give you a lot of free, easy power like you might get from a Babolat frame. The three VCore Pro frames I had were all strung up with a multifilament. I put an overgrip on each and a babolat vibration dampener and weighed each one. The weight for the VCore Pro 97 (310) was 334 grams, the HD was 344 grams, and the Vcore Pro 97 (330) was 354 grams. I was not able to balance them but they all felt similarly balanced and swung very similar. Specific thoughts on each frame are below.

VCore Pro 97 (330)
I probably have the least to say about this racquet, but this should not be taken as knock on the frame. This racquet is absolutely solid. It's a tank. The extra weight just provides a noticeable level of stability even above the other 2 frames. The frame did not feel stiff, but I did feel like it was a smidgen stiffer than the 310 model (which is consistent with the stiffness ratings that TW posted of the 330 being slightly stiffer). Despite the weight, I felt like the frame did swing easily. However, I just was not able to generate the same racquet head speed that I wanted and experienced with the other two frames. This is not a knock on the frame, though, as I'm just not enough of a man to yield this beast. For those players who can swing it, I have no doubt it would reward them.

VCore Pro 97 (310)
This frame felt easy to swing, and I could generate a bit of extra racquet head speed. The frame is solid, but does seem to be missing a little something. I added about 2 grams of lead at 10 and 2 o'clock, and that seemed to help provide the frame just a little extra oomph that I was missing. This racquet is obviously the most maneuverable of the 3 frames due to its lower weight, but I still felt the frame hit solid on all strokes, including volleys. I actually liked serving with this frame a little bit better than the other 2 frames, but that is probably more a result of the racquet head speed I was able to generate with this frame versus the other two

Vcore Pro 97 HD (18x20)
This probably turned out to be my favorite frame of the 3. The weight was less than the 330 model, which was just too much for me. The extra weight of it versus the 310 gave it that much more of a solid feel, so much so that if I switched back to the 310 I would instantly miss that extra weight of the HD. Regarding the string pattern, I did not feel like it was an overly dense string pattern. In fact, if you hold the 16x19 and the 18x20 to each other, the spacing seems extremely similar. However, I did notice the 18x20 gave me a more controlled launch angle and provided even more consistency. I have a very steep forehand swing path, and I am prone to really launching some forehands with too high of a launch angle off the strings. Thus, I actually really appreciated the 18x20 string pattern, as it helped to mitigate that issue for me on the forehand side. I think the 310 frame is probably a little bit easier to generate spin with, but I would not say that spin is hard to come by on this frame (or any of the 3 for that matter). The HD feels only slightly less stiff than the 310 and 330. In fact, I would never have believed someone if they had told me the RA stiffness rating on this racquet was a 59 (I would have thought is was like a 62 or 63). None of the 3 frames play stiff or harsh, but there were shots from time to time where I did feel the extra flex in the HD frame versus the other two.

Other random thoughts
I think all three of these frames can hit spin, but I think they really excel on flat hit balls (not sure why exactly). I really loved hitting a flatter forehand up the line with this frame. Flatter type serves seemed a bit easier to hit as well (but certainly no problems hitting topspin or slice serves with the frame). Groundstroke slice shots were smooth and buttery as well.

I am really curious to see how these frames might play with my normal string set up. I sometimes use a hybrid of poly mains and synthetic gut crosses, but I have been using natural gut mains and poly crosses for several months now. I think a natural gut main with a poly cross might give me that bit of extra pace and spin that I can't quite generate from a multi-filament string. If I were to go with a poly hybrid set up with poly in the mains or a full poly string job, I'd recommend keeping tension on the lower end (under 50 lbs for sure, probably start at 45 lbs and see how that worked).

For reference, my current frame is ProKennex Ki 5 (320), strung with natural gut mains at 58 lbs, ALU power soft poly crosses at 54 lbs. My racquet strung with overgrip and dampener comes in around 349 grams, so I was surprised the few extra grams on the 330 frame was enough to push me outside my comfort / ability to swing. Previously, I used the Babolat Pure Strike Project One racquet, but I gave it up when it started aggravating my elbow last year. I play at a 4.5 NTRP level, baseline player with top spin (counter puncher type style), strong semi-western forehand grip, one handed backhand.

I hope my review helps. I wanted to post my thoughts, as I know I appreciate all the other posters who take time to share their thoughts!

I am going to get my hands on all 3 demos so I should be able to provide some insight this week. I had the Vcore Pro HD but it came over spec'd and felt sluggish so hoping the demo comes in at the right SW. The Vcore Pro HD would be my second choice behind the Blade v7.

What it does well is plow, stability on volley, and great on defense. It is just so solid even when I had both Blade v7 and Vcore Pro HD at same weight and balance.

I have played with the HD and the 330. I sold the HD and am sticking with the 330. I feel i generate more spin with the 330 and i like the added weight. The new 330 definitely has a more "muted" feel than the previous model but i actually prefer that feeling. Both are nice racquets and it comes down to personal preference. Both volley really well.
