The Yonex VCORE 98 Xi continues a player-oriented specification found in previous generation RDiS 100 and VCORE 98.Features new Extra Isometric design which expands the sweetspot and reduces frame vibration, offering improved frame stability, response and spin potential. 3D Vector Shaft design has deeper cross section grooves which increases racquet stiffness and reduces frame twist on off center hits. X Fullerene adds additional stiffness and repulsion power for the quickest response and best face stability ever achieved in a Yonex racquet.

The VCORE 98 Xi remains an optimal choice for the intermediate to advanced player seeking excellent control but in a more forgiving 98 square inch head size and slightly lighter weight than the VCORE 95D. Crisp response from the X Fullerene matrix in the frame itself. Maintains traditional feel, moderately thin 22/21mm frame and open 16x20 pattern for excellent spin potential.

So far so good on this racquet! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting the chance to play with this frame. It has a very solid and crisp feel to it when swinging through the ball. I had been playing with the Pure Drive, but in all honesty this racquet impressed me more. It seems to have more spin, which lets me get extra topspin on the ball for deeper shots. With that being said I found it easy to flatten out my shots and get the added power as well. This racquet continued to impress me from the baseline to the net with great maneuverability and stability. Not to mention the price point on this is phenomenal. You can’t pass this up!

Smooth Japanese Construction

I've used Yonex for nearly a decade because of their racquet construction and strict quality control. This racquet is another example of perfection from Yonex. It has a clean feel when you strike the ball and it has a smooth balance. Lots of spin, control, and maneuverability. Another reason to like it is, once again, is that it is the ONLY tennis racquet not made in China, its made in Japan.
