Yonex VCORE Pro 97D Tennis Racket [Frame Only]

With its 18x20 string pattern, the VCORE PRO 97D offers the greatest amount of precision in the range. The 320g weight is the classic one for this range.

The third generation of the VCORE PRO comes with a number of key changes and enhancements which improve the rackets flexibility, feel and power, all while maintaining the impressive control on which the series has been a leading choice in. Players will instantly notice the thicker beam width of the VCORE PRO which allows for greater power potential and vastly improved frame stability. Other key changes to the frame include the newly designed throat area from which players can now expect an improved level of flex and feel. The graphite used in the construction has also been drastically improved with two key additions - Flex Force and Flex Fuse - which combine to form the 'FlexCon System' that brings the all new level of control to the series.

Flex Fuse is a shock-absorbing polymer integrated into the graphite to give the VCORE PRO its improved flex and its soft, plush feel. The improved comfort is a welcome addition for players spending extended time on the court as well as those looking to prevent arm injuries. Flex Force graphite allows the VCORE PRO to flex and snap back quicker allowing for more spin faster ball acceleration off the string bed. Some of the key technologies from the previous model also make a return including the Lock Booster Grommet System, Vibration Dampening Mesh and the iconic Isometric head shape.

Colour: Teal

Product Details

  • FlexCon System - For racket flex and feel. A tapered and elongated box-frame shaft is composed of Flex Force and Flex Fuse graphite for precise control of the ball.
  • Flex Fuse - For a softer feeling. A shock-absorbing polymer is integrated within the graphite’s resin for increased racquet flex and a softer, more plush feeling.
  • 2G-Namd Flex Force - For increased ball-pocketing. Flex Force graphite allows the racquet to quickly flex and snap back for greater spin and faster ball acceleration off the string bed.
  • Thicker Frame Design - Increased power potential. Widening the outer beam of the racquet creates added frame stability and repulsion.
  • Lock Booster Grommet System - Ball-crushing spin. An improved grommet design that promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer and power.
  • Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) - For added touch and precision. A stretchy mesh material is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations.
