The VCORE is not as flexy or as controlled. Much better feel with the K7 for me and yes open pattern does give easy spin. I like the k7 red more in all aspects but the Vcore does give a bit easier powerThis is question is for you or anyone else who might know or has hit both, but I'm curious how the VCORE 98 305 and K7 Red compare. The Lime was a little too much frame for him, but he loved the feel. Considering how wide open the spacing is on the VCORE 98, the Angell 16x19 might be perfect for him. He likes his Yonex frames, but I'd like to see him with an Angell.
