Yonex Vcore 98, 2021
Yonex Vcore 98 has been updated for 2021 and it’s an impressive one.
Who is it good for?
This Racquet is designed for intermediate to advanced players in mind,
In addition to getting updated with a slightly thicker, more powerful beam, Yonex has widened the racquet’s head above the 3/9 o’clock axis, implementing a more powerful and spin-friendly hitting result. For 2021, the VCORE 95 features some impressive technology updates, including Flex Force, which uses a uniquely flexible graphite (NAMD2) in the lower hoop/upper shaft to help the racquet bend more optimally at impact. Yonex has also redesigned the grommet system with String Sync, which utilizes funnel shaped inserts to help the strings snapback powerfully during impact.
Additional technologies include a Vibration Dampening Mesh in the handle for added comfort, along with several aerodynamic features that reduce wind drag for easier acceleration and finishing points decisively.
How does it feel?
On the court the Vcore 98 delivers great ball feedback. The 98 inch head makes hitting balls with precision fairly easy. The 6 point headlight balance and 325g swingweight translate to hitting shots on the run or producing merciless head speed when loading the ball with spin. The Vcore 98 also delivers at net where it feels solid against pace while also moving quite fast under pressure. In addition it packs a punch shooting massive serves to the opposition.
With some impressive updates to the feel and beam construction, the VCORE 98 has become a powerful spin monster.
