The VCORE 100, now in its 7th generation and with even more spin than before, is suitable for a wide range of players who are looking for a racquet to maximize spin and power that stands up to an aggressive full-court game. This racquet is easier to handle than the VCORE 98 and so will appeal to a wider range of players.
The headsize of 100 square inches will provide easier power and access to spin than the smaller head size variants (95 & 98). The weight of the frame at 10.6 ounces, being slightly on the heavier side of average, has the heft to redirect strong volleys and return of serves and the plow-through will enable great depth and power from the baseline on full swings. It's head light balance means there is minimal sacrifice to maneuverability which will help to achieve maximum spin. The open string pattern will also enable greater spin potential, additional power and a more forgiving sweet spot. The racquet's frame and throat design has been updated from the previous edition to improve the frame's stability and power generation.
With the 2023 edition, Yonex has updated their technology set to improve spin, power generation and overall comfort. The Silicon Oil infused grommets reduces friction between the strings and grommets thereby improving snapback of the strings which increases spin potential even further than before. Yonex has further enlarged the top of the frame which combined with the usual ISOMETRIC shape brings an even bigger sweet spot especially at the top of the string bed which allows players to make proper contact at the extent of the frame for even greater swing speed and ball spin as well as improving overall power generation and comfort that comes with a bigger sweet spot. Another key improvement is the new throat design that helps to stabilize the racquet for reduced overall power loss especially on imperfect contact with the ball. Yonex has retained the 2-NAMD FlexForce Graphite for optimized flex and snapback of the frame which provides excellent overall frame response for maximum spin potential.
With the 2023 edition of the VCORE 100, the improved response, spin and comfort should elevate this racquet as a top contender for intermediate to experienced players who want a racquet to empower their dynamic and aggressive game.

NEW THROAT DESIGN:
New for 2023, Yonex has engineered a new throat design which helps stabilize the racquet, reducing power loss.
ENLARGED FRAME TOP:
New for 2023, a wider frame at 2 o’clock & 10 o’clock position increases the ball contact area, which produces a higher launch angle.
SILICONE OIL INFUSED GROMMET:
New for 2023, Silicone oil infused within the grommets reduces the friction between the string and the grommet resulting in greater snapback for improved spin and string response.
Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC racquet generates a 7% larger sweet spot that delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
2G-NAMD FLEX FORCE:
Incorporated in the upper throat to the lower frame, Flex Force graphite allows for the racquet to quickly flex and snapback for maximum spin potential.
Aero Trench and Aero Fin Technology reduce air resistance for easy maneuverability and added spin.
Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
