I am 16 years old, when I was 13 I bought i pure aero team, now I am feeling way lighter than I would like, so I was looking to buy a new one. As I am a more aggressive and strong player I was looking for a racquet with more control.
I just tested de vcore pro 97(310) and I loved it but I would like to have just a little more power, do you know any other racquets?

This could be a good idea, the demo I tried has this copolymer string called "URAGANO", it is a more control focused string.

So I was thinking now to string it with a multi, which one should I use as I do not string with much frequency I would prefer a more durable one.

The Vcore Pro 100 is a very good racket. Perfect balance of power and control. I haven't tried the VCP97 310 though.

Does it give me more control, that is what i am looking for, i already hit it very hard
I find the control great with Radical 360+ racquets. They don't typically give extra power unless you buy the OS. What I like about Radicals is you can played controlled or turn it up a notch and switch back and forth quickly. Of course I am slightly biased as my previous racquets were Radicals up to the LM Radical. Looking at the other racquets you like and are considering you would likely work well with a Radical.

Basically for head it tends to be (least to most power)
Presitge...Gravity/Radical...Speed Series...Extreme series

The problem with the Radical series was the last few generations were not properly dialed in ... The 360+ plays well and would be what I would recommend to someone who asked what you asked. It is my wheelhouse because you are picking racquets I would ponder using for myself at your age. Basically if it was me I would try Gravity, Radical, Speed series.,Prince Textreme Tours and the mentioned Yonex.

If you need more power in the stick you can throw in just a bit of lead tape at 12. If you need better response on off-center hits, put some at 3&9 area of the hoop as well. Something like total of 3-4g balanced with 5-6g in the handle (or leather replacement grip), acompanied with 2-3 lbs string tension drop will provide healthy power buff while keeping overall racquet feel at similar level.

Look at the standard VCore line. They should have a little more free power to them.

As I said I have never used so many strings
Poly I feel works best when dialing in a racquet. I like Multi when exploring new racquets. Strings have a large impact on various racquets and I find using poly sometimes gives a wrong feel when exploring a new racquet...at least for me. SO I tend to start with Velocity and then explore from there.

Understand, but multi should be strung it at higher tension right?
Like 55 would be good?I was thinking to string poly at 48.

Depends on what you are aiming for and the racquet. I find the middle of the range a great place to start unless you are picking a racquet outside your comfort zone. SO if I am picking a racquet with extra power I might go up 2-4 pounds from middle of its range. This allows me to experience the racquet in a neutral setting. Poly tends to do better at low weight because it needs the boost. Normallly I string racquets for the first time between 52-56 with multi...I will use poly if someone I trust says you should really use poly from day one :)

I liked it but I would prefer with a bit more control with more handle heavier
Try the Yonex ezone 98, and If it’s too light add weight. Also try the pure aero standard or tour, as they are a little heavier and more headlight but will play similar.

And how about yonex Rexis?

Understood, and how about the vcore(red)?
Never tried it but the vcore based off of TW reviews will be more controlled than the ezone with a slightly more open string pattern. Even though it is slightly more open it will be more controlled due to thinner beam overall and low flex.
