For all-around players looking for a light, flexible racquet with precision and feel
With the VCORE PRO 100L (280g), Yonex serves up some impressive speed and precision to the intermediate player. This racket swings easier than the VCORE PRO 100 (300g), while also offering impressive stability for its weight class. For 2021, Yonex tweaks the shaft geometry to help the racket bend more effectively during impact. Yonex also adds 2G-NAMD (Flex Force) to the graphite layup. This is designed to help the frame snapback more effectively during impact. Other material updates include Flex Fuse which utilizes a soft polymer in the layup for added comfort. Yonex’s signature technology remains the ISOMETRIC head shape, which creates a larger sweet spot and a more forgiving feel. As with the previous generation, this update includes VDM (Vibration Dampening Mesh), a handle technology used to reduce harsh impact vibrations. On groundstrokes, the VCORE Pro 100L (280g) offers a seductive combination of speed, precision, and feel. It also feels more forgiving than the VCORE PRO 97s. With its lightweight, this racket makes it easier for less advanced players to generate the stroke speed required for effective pace and spin. The speed also comes in handy at the net where this racket will help you react quickly and stay active. Ultimately, this is a great option for the intermediate player who wants the benefits of a great control racket without the burden of weight.
