Yonex Vcore Pro 97 - 320g vs 310g? Assuming you've tried both

if i was going to buy a yonex vcore pro for doubles, which would you recommend?
320g is the 18x20HD version​
310g is the lighter 16x19 version​

i figured the 330 was a bit too heavy. the SW and stiffness of the above 2 racquets are pretty different.
I was thinking the 18x20 would be more interesting since i already have the vcore and ezone.

I've had both, for doubles i prefer the 310g, 16x19, since i served way better with it, and found it more maneuverable than the HD at the net. It is less stable though.

The HD is easy to swing and very whippy, and for singles, i liked it better, since i found it more stable and better for groundstrokes. One thing i felt is that it plays stiffer than its 59RA rating.

@JoaoN you try the new ezone or vcores? wondering how you would compare either to the 310g pro in terms of best in comfort for someone worried about wrist and elbow pain. cause i dont think either ezone/vcore are super friendly but not the worst either.

I tried the new ezone 98 and the galaxy black vcore 98, Ezone has better comfort, but i found it hard to control, i liked the vcore 98 better, the best setup i found with the vcore 98 was, hyper G 1.20 on the mains and solinco vanquish 1.30 on the crosses. Zero issues with comfort.

Since we are talking yonex, for me, the best of the bunch is the vcore 95. It is comfortable like an Ezone and has a lot of control and feel, and in my experience, more power than vcore 97 310g.

What is your racquet history?

Coming from Wilson 6.1 18x20, heavier Head Radical MP from the 90s, and other such player frames the HD is a easy transition and less taxing to do many things. If you are coming from the 310 or ezones stock you may find spin and maneuverability to be lacking compared to your past experience but if you are able to motivate it efficiently then you may find the bump in stability, precision, unique feel, and power (when swung fully) to be worth it.

Not sure if this might help, but here's a thread for the 320g version
