The blue part definitely seems very off. Seems like the designers messed up, if that is indeed the final version. Personally as long as the racquet is great, I can live with it. But still, a racquet should also be appealing. The current red version looks great.

Hopefully that is paint and not that rubberized coating they had on previous gen. We've had three racquets start to bubble and peel on that model.

That is a strange paint scheme, I’ll still buy the 95 though! Looks like matt finish in the video, might have had more pop if was gloss and hoping I’m wrong on this Matt finish observation :)

-in the picture i have, the candy red and the blue really pop
-maybe its the lighting from the picture, but it looks that way to me
-i did not get to hold it, i just got a picture of it
-but thats it!! in a smaller 27" standard playable version :laughing: (y)

I wonder why it always seems like matte finish frames have less pop than gloss finish frames? And it really is always the case.

Head shape seems more rounded at the top of the hoop which they said is a change in the video.

Other changes they mentioned is (rough summary):
-the use of more namd in additional parts of the frame/layout.
-Bites the ball better better in this version. Think this is related to more spin than ball pocketing as reviewer mentions that feels like more spin than the previous version.
-Grommet holes in the Head and throat are thinner/tighter but instead there's a bit more room in the drilling so theres a bit of a gap between the grommets and frame to still allow for ample string movement...

Paint job color is called Tango Red.

Fukky/Lafino released their impression video. I'm surprisinlgy okay with the blue accents.

Do you know whether it has liner tech? And how about VDM?

i'll be honest... not a fan of the updated look. ezone 2020 was definitely a step up in terms of looks from the previous version (which didn't look bad).
the previous vcore didnt look bad either, but this new version is a downgrade on the design/paintjob. i don't mind the blue.

I always wonder why brands think they should go with crazy color combinations and weird details. Like as if a racket is not interesting and as if it's not going to sell if doesn't look like a crazy candy cane.
Because if it does not stand out in the store, people tend not to go for it.
You have to realize that most people don't care about string patterns, 300g or 305 g, 98 or 100, 31 or 32 balance...they play with what looks good to them because most are not into it to be good but to just have fun.

As much as I'm not a big fan of the paint job, looking at how much I really don't like the new Radical makes me realize I can definitely live with the new Vcore.

New Vcore 95 beam width 21,5-22-21 compared to previous model 21-21-20 and if the upper hoop is wider. New Vcore 95 twistweight and stability is most likely better compared to previous version.
Where did you see the specs?

I just got the new Vcore 98 and 100 and the design is.... different! The blue really makes them look like a christmas ornament, as a good friend to me so nicely put it. Very very very strange choice and i dont really understand the idea behind that blueish part of the frame. It´s a very bold move by yonex to make it like this on the Vcore, but they actually had a similar designelement already on their Ezone Ai frames:

I don't think it's bad at all. The light blue is not the predominant color and it's not that much of an issue. Would I prefer maybe black instead of blue? Sure, but I can live with it. The new Radical however, ouch.

I’m glad I’m still using the Yonex VC SV98. That glossy paint job! :love:
The blue/red on these new Vcores are definitely growing on me over time, but the SV98 glossy finish is probably my favorite PJ of all time, and the lite version is a fantastic platform frame. Bummer that Yonex seems to have abandoned the glossy PJ altogether. I'm debating on just picking up a couple more SV98 lites on the auction site over the new Vcore while they're still out there at a discounted price, and I've also been eyeing the Cool Black PJ in Japan while they last as well.

Ugh! They changed the mold on the 98...AGAIN! Why!?!?!? Beam width used to be 22-22-21, now its 22.5-23-21.

As the Sharks say...and because of that, I'm out.

Because it's black underneath which makes it more stylish

-you dont think a thicker frame would make these sticks more stable??
-IMO these (old vcore line) were too light on their own!
