-im not so mad about the 310 and/ or 330 stick options
-thats what lead tape is for!, small incrmental changes
-all my 310s have a bit of lead here and there to nail the weight i want
-i hated having to add so much lead to a y.vcore.95(RED), that it felt like a "lead racquet" instead of a heavy PRO solid racquet
I don't like adding lead weight to my frames. Prefer to play them stock with an overgrip and dampener.

I like VDM, it's noice! Besides, even if you don't like it, you can't say you lost a match because of VDM, at least I hope not.
i think VDM makes sense on the vcore pro line, since it is more comfort oriented. the newest vcore IMO got dampened a little too much, even though overall i like them better than the previous model

Wow the PJ looks very retro. Reminds me oh older Wilson frames. I think the sledge hammer 3.8 has similar paint scheme. Eager to see them in shops and get more details on tech upgrades

I used t think that way, but now I'm in @!<-_->! 's camp, especially since most manufacturers have wide ranging tolerances. Granted, it's not as bad w/ Yonex as other brands, but they can vary +- 2g, and if you get two on the opposite ends of the spectrum, that can be a huge difference.

With the VCOREs 98 +s at 305, and I prefer my frames in 315g range, it allows me to adjust for tolerances.

Well then you are limited to what the companies offer and could be just fine... but you are leaving a lot on the table. Especially considering a "315g" racket hardly ever comes out as actually 315g.

Plenty of frames that fall in my wheelhouse without modifications, more than I have time to try and I've tried A LOT.

Right. I am simply saying instead of hoping Yonex will substantially change a line of sticks you otherwise like and that have not been really changed in the better part of a decade, you could modify the only part of it you don't like which also happens to be the easiest part to modify.

-agree
-why wont they make money, with the stuff he ,(stan wawrinka) actually uses!!?? ala RF!!
-some of us here seem to be asking for the same thing
-a solid 320g, vcore.PRO! weight, 95", 16/20 frame
-why is this so hard for yonex to understand
so WHY is the vcore 95 that Shapo is using with great results not good enough? i think such small head sizes dont sell very wel in the first place so therefore Yonex has only one 95 inch size to choose.

old is fine you know.... especially just 1 generation. If you like the colors that much just pull the trigger
Well,

just remember to get spare grommets now —that pretty much goes for any frame, any time, but doubly so before any model changes.

i see nothing new here in tech. No new space age material to make you play better or increase power and swing speed and better control with bad form and so on
