For big hitting players looking for devastating winners. The VCORE Pro 97 (310) remains a very solid option for intermediate and advanced players who want a speedy player's racket with great feel and easy targeting.
The VCORE Pro 97 (310) replaces the VCORE Duel G 97 (310). It sports a relatively compact 97in² head and flexibile 20mm beam, giving it great control and outstanding feedback at ball impact. At 11.5 ounces strung, this racket is not only suitable for intermediate players, but it should also appeal to the advanced player who wants quick handling without having to trade away too much stability. New to this version is a substance called Namd, which is a uniquely flexible carbon material used in strategic locations to optimize the response. The signature technology remains the Isometric head shape, which is designed to feel roomier than conventionally shaped equivalents. This racket also features a Lock Booster System, which features raised ridges in the grommet strip for enhanced power.
From the baseline, the VCORE Pro 97 feels crisp and accurate, and the updated 16x19 string pattern gives it plenty of spin. Although it lacks the plow through and mass-based pop of the 330 gram version, it still feels impressively solid.
At net, this racket offers a nice compromise between speed and stability. It positions quickly but also redirects pace well for a sub 12 ounce racket. Like its predecessor, it will give aggressive servers the needed precision to swing for power, and there is more than enough spin potential to work the ball into tight spaces.
