Does anyone have any information on this racket? I wanted to try the Vcore 95D but never managed to find one. Is the new SV 95 likely to be a similar racket?
Thanks, QF

The New VCORE SV: Spin it to the Limit
Date
22 July 2016


The latest addition to Yonex’s powerful VCORE line of tennis racquets is here—the VCORE SV.

Research shows that modern-day tennis demands players dominate in long rallies from the baseline. The ability to keenly keep in control during these long rallies and break down the opponent’s defense is essential to winning matches. To do so, players require consistent high trajectory and ball spin. The new VCORE SV—Spin Vortex—does exactly this. The racquet has been specifically designed to cut down on air resistance, deliver faster swings, produce powerful serves, and generate ferocious spin.

Angelique Kerber started using the new racquet this week at the Ericsson Open in Bastad, Sweden, and is currently in the second round.

The VCORE SV goes on sale worldwide in early September.

New Aero Fin Technology



The VCORE SV boasts a 16% decrease in air resistance and a 2.9% increase in swing speed thanks to its New Aero Fin Technology. The new technology features fins along the inner-area of the frame top and on the outer area of the frame at the 2 and 10 O’clock positions. This makes the VCORE SV exceptionally aerodynamic, especially on areas of the racquet which typically have the most air resistance. The end result is improved spin, higher trajectory and faster ball speed.

SV Frame


The VCORE SV’s innovative SV Frame design allows players to get a firm grip on the ball and launch it effectively. The inside of the upper portion of the frame has been equipped with our new NANOMETRIC XT carbon. Boasting greatly increased flex over typical carbon, NANOMETRIC XT improves ball pocketing, gripping the ball for 4% longer than conventional racquets. Meanwhile, the aero shape of the racquet frame shoulder provides extra torque, improving repulsion by 2%.

This new technology is enhanced further by the huge sweet spot via the Yonex ISOMETRIC frame shape, resulting in a powerful racquet fit for today’s tennis.

Spin it to the limit with VCORE SV.

Thanks! It looks like the 95 will be a really spin friendly players stick.

Yeah the technology is pretty gimmicky, but sometimes YY intros real tech, like the isometric head shape or the Micro core weighting - which does seem to give the frame a little more power.

we will see, not sure about the spin on spin - but if you like the yonex feel and their control....demo the puppy...
I'll definitely demo it, I liked the yonex I had. I won't be switching from the pro staff but it's always fun to have a few different rackets in my bag.

310g, 21mm beam, 310mm balance 16/20

From what I can tell the Vcore Tour were meant to be successors to the 95D while the Xi and Si follow more after the 98D and 100S. The SV 95 is harder to line up, it is 16x20 instead of 21, so like Si may have eaten Tour F, it has the strung weight and balance of the Tour F 93 & 97 and a head size right in the middle. I wouldn't expect a RA below 64 and a swingweight around 315 or so.

Just put it out there that you are looking for a 95D. I mentioned it in a thread or two and someone messaged me saying he had 3 available with 2 being new. Bought one... wish I bought two

Well the 95D was in the same line as the 98D, so I'm just guessing they will be similar to prior releases. Never can tell with Yonex.

You never know with Yonex's updated line.
Most of racket companies make different paint job or lightly changing spec for updated version but Yonex often makes completely different racket than previous version.

What I was getting at above...

when the 95D was discontinued it was replaced by two models, the Tour 89 and Tour 97, those two models were replaced by the Tour F 93 and Tour F 97.

the 95D was 320g, 310mm replaced by:

Tour 89 was 325g, 310mm and the Tour 97 was 310/330g and 310mm
They replaced the 95D by going heavier and lighter as well as bigger and smaller
replaced by:

Tour F 93 were 310g, 310mm and the F 97 was 290/310g and 310mm
These replacements were lighter to be distinct from the Tour G
possibly replaced by:

The SV 95 is 310g, 310mm so it retains the weight and balance while returning to one head size and dropping the light version. The mold is different than anything previous, it has fins like the F and the shaft has a new shape. Basically they appear to have somewhat similar specs and marketed at the same playing style as the models before.

Hopefully it does well and opens the door for a Duel G 95 320

I like the modest increases. Like Wilson will say 3000 more RPMS!!!! OH MY GOD. This is an honest 3-5% increase which is totally reasonable

The yonex isometric head shape has a 7% larger sweet spot.
The VCORE SV boasts a 16% decrease in air resistance and a 2.9% increase in swing speed thanks to its New Aero Fin Technology delivers 6% more serve speed. NANOMETRIC XT pockets 4% longer. Meanwhile, the aero shaft improves repulsion by 2%. Together it delivers a 5% increase in spin and 11% increase in trajectory height.

If every generation improves at this rate in a few years I'll have to slice everything just to hit flat. ;) I think its the superlatives that makes their marketing funny for me, exceptional spin, revolutionary micro core technology...

I don't mind silly marketing because the frames are consistently good from Yonex and some of the tech is actually real. They have to sell frames and new PJs so this stuff is to be expected.

It's a different racket looking at the mold, the throat and lower hoop bridge flares are totally different from the 95D. The head shape looks diff as well in these pics, had a few of these to compare.

Yeah it doesn't seem to be something that Yonex do. Who knows, it might be better than the legendary 95D!?

I doubt it but we'll see. Take a look at the Yonex link that moon-shot posted. If you can find where Stan has his racket, hat and shirt advertised, do a close up and you will see the original 95D paint jobbed.

but it is a good thing if yonex does release a good sub 60ra 95sq inch frame... sill for sll these companies to dump their 95's

If Yonex knew in 2012 what the 26 year old who had been hanging around 14-30 in the rankings would do 2-3 years later I'm sure they would have done more to get him in a frame they could keep in the market. By the end of the year it was already discounted so they probably had it planned at the time he started playing with it.

I doubt they will do the RA that low. The 95D was listed at 63RA but feels stiffer to me. Flexs a little in the throat at times. YY makes some solid consistent frames. Not all brands have dumped the 95 though. #feelcrusher

Agreed. The Ai98 is very soft, mostly due to the OPS shape of its 19.5mm throat. I can't think of anything with a 3D vector shaft that is softer than 63, and on top of that the 'repulsion shoulders' sound like stiffness to me.

If you were only merging the Tour F 93 (64) and Tour F 97 (67) to make a 95 you'd still end up 65ish unless they went in a totally new direction.

Ohh I read the article from yonex in japanese using translate,they are combining Tour F series and Si Series to one "ultimate Vcore version".
The Vcore SV 95 is meant to replace 95D & Tour F 93 while the SV 98 is meant to replace the Tour F 97 and Si 98.
The SV 100 is meant to replace the the Si 100
Apparently in the japan article SV series will also have the Si hybrid grommet technology but the bottom special grommet is remove after improvising. The aero fin now will also be on top and bottom of the tip of racquet's head making it a improved version over Tour F.

Meanwhile interestingly they put exceptionally emphasis on the vcore SV 100S, they say its "magical" and the new thing. If you check the yonex website the SV 100S has an additional technology compare to the rest.
The SV 100S is lighter because it is 0.5inch shorter(26.5") and it is claimed lab and professionally player tested to give me more control, significantly less chance of hitting out (due to the shorter length) and the lighter weight itself allow you to hit more racket speed (more for modern forehand technique).
They say the isometric head(larger sweetspot) of yonex will make the shorter length less of a noticeable effect however players might need to fine tuned the timing. It seems to be priced a little cheaper than the above 3 but it sort of being specially mentioned like a flagship racquet(longer review and long explanation is given).
