well the thing with this is weird vibrations I get from hitting the ball. It might appeareafter re-stringing to solinco revolution, now I have high-pitch frequency sound after the contact, so I decided to look what could have caused it.
Well, then either remove it (but this will cause a change in weight which might be significant - and therefore has to be rectified), or fill the other side if the racquet is still not heavy enough.

One last thing, before you start digging the stuff out... check that none of the grommets are busted or that there are no cracks in the frame.

Hope you solve it and the racquet plays well for you.
 
anybody know a place where I can still get the 2018 version of this stick?


this one. I was rather underwhelmed with the updates; dampening felt mushy, wider beam not to my liking, the list goes on.
 
spec wise looks good thanks. but what about feel/playability? I usually don't like it when they put these new age super duper dampening technologies in it.

it's the identical carbon frame in a different colour, with a thin vibration dampening mesh added to the handle, so the feel is slightly different, I find it better, but the racquet is esentially identical. here I'm speaking of the dark green/gold one, compared to dark blue/orange, I'm not talking about the newest 2021 one. however, since I played for many years with RF97A, and then with dark blue/orange VCP 330g for a year or so, I can easily say that this new 97H is better in every way than both, a fabulous racquet

thanks for the input, appreciate it. slightly different as in more muted? less?

probably, but more muted doesn't mean "muted", just not as direct, and sometimes jarring as the dark blue/orange one. I hit hard, and those frames have stiff hoop and some flex in the throat, so they absolutely don't like higher tensions, they become jarring to off hits. so for me, and most I'd guess, the addition of VDM to the handle is totally welcome. but if you don't hit as hard, and play it with a softer string - nat gut hybrid for example, your experience might be different

new 97H is still better in every way..

I have a 2018 and 2019 version of the vcp310. I can move between the two seamlessly. Some people find the vibration dampening mesh makes a difference in feel, but I really don’t notice it. I often use gut/poly set ups, so I tend to be on the softer end of things anyway. Maybe if I was using a full poly set up, a difference in dampening would be more noticeable.
