VCORE PRO HD vs VCORE 95

Hi,

...just curious... How does the VCORE PRO HD compare to the VCORE 95? I have been using the 95 for the past 6 months and have been really enjoying it . I have it with 2g of lead at 10, 12, and 2 (6g total) with leather grip and overgrip. I'm using Weiss cannon redghost 17g string strung around 48lbs.... I hit a OH backhand SW forehand.... mostly baseline game but I'll come in when i can/if i have to....
I think the VCORE 95 is the perfect platform racquet for me but was wondering if this new VCORE PRO HD is worth a look at all (I was coming from a Redondo 93 then to the Vcore pro 310 then the 330 then the Duel G 330).... Or should I just get back to business with the 95?

Thanks,

If that's your game, I'd give the HD a shot, man. It's a dang good frame. I've got mine stock weight but with a leather grip. Love it.

I play with the 95 as well. If you have a pretty whippy forehand you will probably like the 95 more. The HD is sweet on BH slices and more old school "stable wrist" forehands. It really felt like the weight was depolarized.

I'm not sure what you mean by stable wrist forehand... like a flat eastern forehand ? i hit with fair amount of spin... why didnt you make the switch to the HD? how do you have your 95 setup ?

Like Easter forehand hand or a semi western with more old school technique. My fh is pretty western and snappy so the weight distribution and soft flex in the head of the HD doesn't work for me. I wouldn't say it's about spin generation, it's more about how violently you lag your wrist.

I have 6 grams under the bumper and a leather grip. I prefer a pretty polarized set up.

I had short demo with both and I play a leather, lead 3-9 orange Vcore 330. I still prefer the new Vcore Pros but I am undecided between going to HD or not. Definitely a more penetrating shot. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in your game? I don't know if HD would give you more control since you already have a 95.

I think I’ll probably just stick with the 95 and maybe check out the new VCORE 95's or any other 95 Yonex comes out with if/when they come out ... I’m just curious if I could get a tad more power and maintain the same control ... but I'm probably just focus on fitness and technique as the VCORE 95 seems already powerful, accurate and comfy.

I would say get rid of the leather grip for something lighter that will make the racket more head heavy as it already is very head light stock. That'll sort you for power. Oh and a gut/poly hybrid.
