THE GOOD Yonex has improved the VCORE to become an even more spin-friendly frame. They’ve made some big updates adding key technology pieces to the racquet — including new 2G NAMD flex force & VDM, The all-new 2G NAMD is incorporated in the upper throat to the lower frame, all-new FLEX FORCE graphite allows for the racquet to quickly flex and snapback for maximum spin potential. To help achieve faster head speeds for increased spin potential, Yonex’s Aero Trench reduces drag by uniquely hiding the grommets located at the top of the frame. This allows for easy maneuverability.
Nate Walroth: This stick provides a ton of control and spin. If you're able to square upon contact, you can drive balls with a lot more precision. The weight distribution of the racquet allows you to get through the ball quickly.
THE BAD It's hard to find a bad thing to say about the Yonex VCORE 95, other than the fact that this is truly a racquet for intermediate to advanced players. If you are unable to generate energy with your stroke, you will find it difficult to play this racquet. Lastly, the VCORE 95 places an emphasis on power over control, so if you are a player really looking to prioritize control in your game, you might want to look elsewhere in the Yonex racquet lineup.
Nate Walroth: If you aren’t the cleanest of ball strikers shots die well inside the baseline. This racquet is geared for players who can consistently find the sweet spot from the baseline.
THE BASELINE With it's an emphasis on new technology, control, and spin this racquet is a great upgrade to the 2018 version. The racquet feels more refined and muted, still powerful, more comfortable, and a true weapon in the hands of the right player (you need to play with a lot of topspin for this one). Add in the 95 square inch head, 11.4 ounces strung weight and a unique 16x20 string pattern; the VCORE 95 is the ideal mid-sized frame for the advanced player seeking a user-friendly stick that has excellent feel and pin-point control on groundstrokes.
Nate Walroth: This is a racquet for advanced players. The control based frame and string pattern make it easier to hit out without airmailing balls (unforced errors). The V Core also has enough weight to get juice behind a kick serve.
