The VCORE Pro 97 (310g) comes with an updated string pattern at 16x19 for more power and spin. The Isometric head Yonex is known for also gives you forgiveness & power on off-center hits thanks to the larger sweet spot. While not as powerful(plow-through) as the 330g version, the 310g offers players the stability needed to play with heavier hitters while remaining much more accessible than the 330g. The Pro 97 has a slightly crisper feel than the previous Pro 97, which is a welcome addition.
During the play test we noticed the stability and precision the VCORE Pro is known for. At the baseline, this racquet performed well. Placing shots was no problem at all and the added crispness gave us better ball feel. The new, more open string pattern (16x19), gave us much better spin-potential than previous generations of this racquet, an excellent choice by Yonex.
At net the stability and maneuverability let us control the frame and put balls away with ease. The Pro 97 shined on the serve. The racquet was precise and powerful enough on serves to put us in charge of the point right away. On returns the racquet performed well but of course lacked the stability of the heavier, 330g, version of this racquet. This of course depends on the speed of the serve and returner! This is something easily fixed if need be(in case you face someone with a heavier serve) with some lead tape! Overall the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 (310g) is a great update & one of our favorite racquets on the market. We recommend this control oriented racquet to higher intermediate to advanced level players.
