Will the Vcore 95 die?

Is Denis Shapovalov’s switch to Ezone a sign of Vcore 95’s discontinuation?

I’ve heard yes from some and no from others, what do you think?

I haven’t heard whether the frame will discontinued but some players have mentioned that they preferred the 2018 version of this frame more than the current version. Looking at what else is available you have the Angell TC 95 , Prince ATS Tour 95 and Phantom 93 P’s and 2021 Head Prestige Tour and Dunlop CX 200 Tour 95 and Volkl PB 10 Mid ( 93). This is what’s left to buy, and they are all beautiful frames, including the Yonex.

I hope not.. plus if you've noticed Shapavalov hasn't been playing well at all after the switch :D

only Giron comes to mind.. who else is using it?
I suppose I should have lead with this.... When I think of high-level, I include good D1 schools, challenger-level players, top 20 kids at nationals, etc.

It's not a popular choice, but there are definitely people using it. The red VCore line in general is popular right now, and I have talked to stringers to verify whether they are using the VCore 100, 98, or 95, and the 95 is a decent chunk of that pie.

This would be in contrast to some other rackets that have more or less completely fallen out of favor in those circles.

Got it, that’s good to hear. Hopefully the demand will keep the racket around

For those who think Yonex will keep the 95 around because it's a "Best Seller", you may want to look at what happened to the 98 Galaxy which was also a best seller. It was DC'd.

It's all just my observation, but the 95 is selling close to the ezone, I never saw that many Galaxy out there, but the 95 is everywhere from 3.5 up to challenger and top high school players, for some reason, maybe word of mouth. I always thought a 95, just the number would scare people off of it.

honestly! shapo is always streaky, but particularly poor with the ezone. that’s what made me wonder if perhaps it was a change from yonex, but i think i’m just overthinking it.

What’s the difference between the Shapo vcore and the Stanimal vcore?
-difference is almost 3oz
-one is a standard y.vcore.95, closer to 10oz weight
-the other is a heavy hitter y.vcore.PRO.95, n the 12oz range
-why they (YONEX) dont release a vcore.PRO95 ill never understand

I actually think the Vcore 95 "is" the Vcore pro 95, the stability is high like the Vcore Pros, the weight is up there above the Vcore 98 and 100, I think it really fits in the Vcore Pro line more than the red Vcore line. The difference in the Vcore 95 and 98 is larger than the difference between the Vcore 95 and the Vcore Pro 310 or D.

-here is a good video from "tennis.nerd"
-that said, i do acknowledge your preference for the new school vcore 95s
-i myself like/preffer more of a 12oz to 13 oz racquet
-my style of swing tends to favor it more (bit ol-school!!)
-stan.wawrinka racquet is on the 13oz range!!

Yeah, I used the 330g and the H for a while, but that new school vcore 95 can do a crazy spinny forehand with more wrist action, even though I am an old school swing path, I like the magic wand feel of that one, move on to the Regna, it's just a slightly beefed up 95, head sizes are visually identical too.
