Yonex updates the VCORE SV 100 G and puts even more emphasis on aerodynamics and spin as well as enhancing the racquet's feel.
There are plenty of 100 square inch head-size racquets that weigh 300 grams on the market, however, there are very few that possess the same levels of spin potential and feel as the VCORE 100. Boasting a few new technologies, this update is even more aerodynamic and spin friendly than its predecessor - the VCORE SV 100. The addition of more Aero Fins, now at the lower portion of the head as well as the upper portion of the head reduces air resistance as does Aero Trench technology that recesses the grommets along the top of the racquet's head. Thanks to these new technologies, Yonex claims this latest VCORE series of racquets to be the highest spin producing racquets in the company's history.
Also new to this racquet is Yonex's Namd technology. One complaint about the VCORE SV 100 was that it could feel a little jarring at impact. Especially on off centre ball strikes. The integration of the extremely flexible Namd material into strategic areas of the racquet's layup allows the graphite carbon to create more snapback; producing more powerful shots, but also better feel as well as more spin potential. Though this racquet has a similar flex rating (68 RA) to it's predecessor the VCORE SV 100, it does feel noticeably softer and more forgiving thanks to the Namid technology. Another new technology that enhances this racquets feel is Liner Tech. By dramatically reducing the angle at which the string enters the grommets on select main strings acts to extend these strings and produces a larger more forgiving sweetspot as well as more ball pocketing at impact.
Though it going up against some stiff competition in the 100 square inch head category of racquets, the VCORE 100 likely offers a more forgiving sweetspot than most of its competitors thanks to Yonex's patented Isometric head shape that increases the sweet spot by 7% for greater control without sacrificing power.
Thanks to the increase in spin potential and improved feel, the VCORE 100 is definitely a welcome update to the VCORE 100 and should create plenty of buzz in the crowded 100 square each head and 300 gram segment of the market.

Created by YONEX in 1980, the ISOMETRIC head shape is a unique and evolutionary breakthrough technology in racquet design. In conventional racquets, the sweet spot is located where main strings and cross strings meet. The YONEX ISOMETRIC head shape allows us to increase the number of main and cross strings that meet in the centre of the racquet to produce a sweet spot which gives a 7% more effective hitting area for you to make match winning shots.
3D Vector Shaft:
The throat grooves of the 3D Vector Shaft improve racquet stiffness, generating supreme face stability and giving players more efficient power.
New Aero Fin:
The VCORE SV boasts a 16% decrease in air resistance and a 2.9% increase in swing speed thanks to its New Aero Fin Technology. The new technology features fins along the inner-area of the frame top and on the outer area of the frame at the 2 and 10 O’clock positions. This makes the VCORE SV exceptionally aerodynamic, especially on areas of the racquet which typically have the most air resistance. The end result is improved spin, higher trajectory and faster ball speed. 2018 VCORE racquets also have Aero Fin at the lower portion of the head.
A flexible carbon material that works in a graphite matrix to produce optimal frame snapback at impact. Producing better feel, more power and greater spin potential.
Recessed grommets to reduce wind drag and create greater racquet head speed.
By dramatically reducing the string entry angles in select grommets, the outer main strings are elongated to produce a wider sweet spot, providing greater snapback. With added string movement, players can grab the ball to apply extra spin.
Dimensional Weight: 1.0 kg
Dimensional weight, also known as volumetric weight, is an estimated weight that is calculated from the length, width, height and actual weight of a package. It also takes into consideration oversize/fuel surcharges. It is not representative of the actual weight of a package. We use this estimated weight as the basis to our shipping rate calculations.
