Question for Sean or Chris. Yonnex VCore Pro 97 VS Vcore 98

#1
Hi Chris and Sean.
You were both on the test for the Yonnex vcore Pro97 and the new vcore 98. I'm interested as to how you would compare the two?

I am currently demoing the pro97 and the Babolat Pure Strike 16X19. I love the feel of the pro97 and how solid it is. Here, I feel it wins out over the pure strike. I'm hoping the vcore 98 might fall in between.

In other words, a little better feel and control than the pure strike and a little more pop and slightly easier to wield than the pro97.

Any thoughts?

I can chime in and offer my thoughts if you want them. 5.5-6.0 level player, with history of Yonex racquets. DM me.

Although I like the feel from the VCORE Pro 97 310, it feels a little more responsive than the VCORE 98, which has a slightly more modern and muted feel. I think the VCORE 98 is going to give you easier power and spin, but less control than the Pro 97.

I think the VCORE 98 might fall in-between the two, but is definitely closer to the Pure Strike in both play and feel in my opinion. When you get a chance, I would definitely try to demo them side-by-side, as a lot of this depends on your playing style and personal preference. I think the EZONE 98 and the new Speed Pro are worth looking at as well.

Best,

Thanks Sean,
The feel of the pro97 is addicting, as good as the old pro staffs, maybe better. The demo has Prince control multi in it. Unfortunately, they notched and locked up after about three hours of use. My concern is passing power. If the 97 is a 5 and say the pure Aero etc.. is a 10 ..I probably need a 7. Thanks for the recommendations I'll get a demo set together ASAP.

Some parting advice...I think the 97 is abnormally string and tension sensitive. I've found the racquet plays very different with different strings and tensions. If at first you don't succeed, maybe change something up and see how it goes.

Best,
Sean, TW
