Question for Chris and Sean

Hello!

You were both on the playtest of the VCore Pro 310 and the Touch Prestige MP. I'm considering both as my new racket. How did they differ in feel? And what were the other major differences and similarities?

Hope you could help me with this.

Best regards,

Frans

Hi @Frans Bleker,
I think the feel of the two racquets is fairly similar, although I would say the VCORE Pro 97 310 is a little livelier and the Graphene Touch Prestige MP is more deadened due to the graphene touch dampening technology. They are both versatile and maneuverable frames, and I think the biggest difference is in their power levels and launch angles. The 18x20 string pattern on the Prestige MP lowers the launch angle pretty significantly, which isn't a problem, you just really have to work hard and swing out to produce depth out of the racquet. I would also contend that the Prestige MP has better control and is more string sensitive. Conversely, the Vcore Pro 97 310 offers the same manueverability with more "pop." I think the tradeoff is between getting a little more control out of the Prestige MP, or a pretty significant gain in depth and ease of use from the Pro 97 310.

Both are great racquets and, if possible, I would highly recommend giving them a demo before purchasing. Hope I could help!

Best,
Sean
