Description

The Yonex VCORE Pro 97HD is a racquet for experienced players looking to maximize control. The updated VCORE Pro series has added vibration dampening mesh in the handle of the racquet, leading to a better feel and a more arm friendly frame.

Coming in at 11.3 ounces (320 grams) unstrung, the 97 HD is on the heavier end of the players racquet spectrum. The mass provides lots of impact stability even when faced with powerfully struck balls. The weight also means there is plenty of power on offer to those who can generate the racquet head speed with this weighty stick. The 10 point head light balance (310 mm balance point) ensures the racquet still has a good level of maneuverability. The 97 square inch head size coupled with Yonex's tried and tested Isometric head shape, makes for a larger sweetspot than most racquets in this class which can come in handy especially since it has a denser string pattern. The 18/20 string pattern will assist in improving the overall control performance of this frame allowing for even bigger swings for powerful drives and precise volleys.

Yonex has delivered another frame sure to please experienced players looking for a classic frame feel with all the modern updates you'd expect from today's racquets.

  • Flex: 59 RA

  • String Pattern: 18/20
  • Year Introduced: 2019
  • Super Cushion Grip:
    The Super Cushion Grip minimizes vibration. The cushioning performance of the grip helps protect the wrist, forearm and elbow against shock-induced injuries.
  • Black Micro Core:
    New carbon graphite and elastic particles are added to Micro Core technology for increased face stability and even better vibration dampening.
  • 3D Vector Shaft:
    The throat grooves of the next generation 3D Vector Shaft are extended, generating supreme face stability.
  • Isometric:
    Isometric design increases the sweet spot by 7% according to Yonex. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped Isometric racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. Isometric delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
  • Namd:
    Overpower with heavy drives. With Namd graphite's unique flex and fast frame snapback, you can grip the ball and fire off aggressive, attacking spin.
  • Lock Booster System:
    Crush the ball. An improved grommet design that promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer an ball crushing power.
  • Vibration Dampening Mesh:
    VDM is a stretchy mesh material that adheres well to graphite to reduce arm fatigue. Integrated within the grip, VDM minimizes vibrations by 30% resulting in improved feel and precise ball control.

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.

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.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

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.
