This fast and spin-friendly weapon gets updated with a new frame geometry for 2023
For 2023 Yonex redesigns the VCORE 100 but keeps the raw speed and easy spin of the previous generation. Compared to the VCORE 95 and 98, this model is more powerful and forgiving, but it still delivers more than enough control for aggressive targeting. According to our TW playtesters, this update has better pocketing and improved feel, with higher launch angle for easier depth. For 2023 Yonex reengineers the frame's geometry. In addition to redesigning the shaft and making minor tweaks to the beam width, Yonex has widened the hitting area of the racquet's upper hoop, resulting in a more stable, powerful and spin-friendly hitting experience. Other new features include SIF Grommets, which deploys a silicone oil infusion to reduce the friction between the string and grommet. The upshot is greater string movement for increased snapback and more vicious ball rotation. Like the previous generation, this racquet benefits from 2-NAMD FlexForce Graphite in the upper shaft and lower hoop, enabling the racquet to flex optimally through impact. Ultimately, with some impressive changes to the beam and feel, this update checks all the right boxes.
