The VCORE Tour 97 is optimal for the more advanced player looking for an excellent control and spin oriented frame in a more forgiving 97 square inch head size. Crisp response from the X Fullerene matrix in the frame itself, and added forgiveness on shots hit near the frame tip. Excellent feel, thin 19/20/22mm frame and open 16x20 pattern for excellent access to spin.

I like head light balance, feel and control. Spin is easy generate. The sweet spot is very generous. The specification states that static weight of 12.30 oz and swing weight is 334g. But it feels a lot lighter than what it says.
Absolutely great frame. Heavy of course, so quite demanding, but really comfortable and tons of power if you swing hard and hit cleanly. Super stable--does not get pushed around. Serving--unbelievably great, groundstrokes--great, volleys--really good, though this is where it feels the least maneuverable to me. Just note that it's not easy to swing and it takes a while to get used to the weight if you're not already playing with frames this heavy. So worth a demo, and I'd probably expect an adjustment period.
Great all around performing frame. Like most Yonex frames, spin is super easy to produce. I found that it has just enough mass to be super stable, yet headlight enough to be quick at the net. I also like the large sweetspot, especially on returns. Definitely worth a demo.
