Yonex Vcore Pro 97

I am a bit let down by the PJ shown above. Going off the original hoop pics that were leaked it had more of the current navy blue in it, and the PJ was more matte. I was hoping for just a 'green instead of red' of the current PJ but oh well. Also Tiafoe's sticks have the semi-gloss PJ out of personal preference and that the retail sticks have the more matte PJ of the current line.

25 years without a recession and a massive commodities boom that has tapered off. That’s why. Everything is expensive in Australia.
Check tennisonly you can now get x2 VCP97's for $150 ea and with a 10% code it comes to $135 ea for 2 rackets. I daresay that's a great deal!

HK is not in SEA but yonex prices there is reasonable. get them unstrung or with a packet of strings. Since air pressure will kill the string tension.

Yea, definitely won't get it strung since I wouldn't be able to get the racquet for a few weeks anyways. Will have to keep an eye out on TW prices since it seems like they may drop too.

Tiafoe's racquet is a Duel G under the paintjob which has shared holes, so if you're baseing it off that it might not be correct.
ooh, in that case all is not lost. :)
I didn’t realise they were Tiafoe’s sticks. Was at the shops and didn’t have my reading glasses on.....just saw the pics and it was a struggle to read much at all!

From what has been mentioned, I think it will be the same frame as the current model (16x19 version), just with a PJ change and also perhaps some more dampening in the handle.

The 18x20 version is a total mystery though.

I thought the original leaked pic had the VCORE written in a sort of like green instead of gold. I wonder if the 330 or 18x20 will have a different pj.

I'd like to start to talk about economy but I don't want to go off topic, so I'll not say anything

Despite Argentina's challenging economic condition, it has managed to produce many top tier tennis players compared to its neighbours. Obviously Tennis Argentina is doing something right.

It's just pure heart and guts, I guarantee you.
Despite all the bad things about this country (socially and economically speaking) the good thing is that we are prepared for almost anything .
We live in permanent crisis, so we deal with it daily, we are already ready for situations of pressure.
However, I think tennis as structure is getting better, at least a bit.
 
So turns out I can get a VCore Pro 97 in HK for pretty cheap, about $100 new. Or I can get a VCore 95/98 for about $160.

I am leaning towards the VCP just because of price alone. I'm basically looking for a more arm friendly racquet, most notably something that won't put as much stress on my wrist during top spin in comparison to my RF97A. The VCP97 should be the right pick right? Or is the VC95 going to be the better option?

I ended up becoming a member of this group as well. Ordered a used VCP 97 310 from the bay but the seller mistakenly sent me a 330gr one. Thought that I wouldn't like it and would return it but I actually really like it. Great control and comfort. Needs a bit more power but that can be fixed adjusting string tension.

Definitely a keeper.

For reference, in my bag I always have a 2015 Blade, IG Radical MP and Pro, DR98 Lite and a G360 Speed MP.

Yeah, it is. I’ve been spending a lot of time with a Clash 98 lately and am finding it to be a fantastic racquet. Even more comfortable which my ailing shoulder likes.

Does the 2015 Blade give you shoulder pain?

I am glad you like the Clash 98. I played with the 100' head version and didn't gel with it. Almost too soft and unpredictable. Have to try the 98' I guess! :)

The 2015 blade gives me some wrist aches and shoulder pain.

The Clash 98 IMO is better than the 100 in every category except it has a little less power. Still love the 100 though. The 100 is more of a stick I pull out when I’m hitting casually. The 98 I can use to play matches.

Very. It'll be my next frame 100%

Love the 320g unstrung weight. Dark green and gold PJ is gorgeous and 18x20.
Jupp. I can pretty much say the same thing. Just don’t hope they make the 18x20 too dense. Angell TC97 18x20 is cutting it close for me in that regard. Biomimetic 300 tour and Wilson ultra tour are perfect 18x20 patterns.

I would think the 97 in isometric head should allow for a nice 18x20 pattern. Nothing too crazy tight.
