New for 2019, Yonex updated the cosmetic to the Red VCORE 98 with a Galaxy Black cosmetic.

Yonex has improved the VCORE to become an even more spin-friendly frame. They’ve made some significant updates adding key technology pieces to the frame — including new Aero Trench & Linear Tech.

To help achieve faster head speeds for increased spin potential, Yonex’s new Aero Trench reduces drag by uniquely hiding the grommets located at the top of the frame. This allows for easy maneuverability. Further adding to that spin potential, Yonex engineered straight grommet hole grommets that allow for more string movement on outer areas of the racquet.

The New VCORE Black features Yonex’s trademark racquet technology, Isometric Shape which creates a 7% larger sweet spot for great control without sacrificing power.

Yonex has added N.A.M.D to the bridge of the frame -- this unique graphite was also featured in the VCORE Pro frames, allows for extra flex and torque at ball contact. Yonex has experimented and reported that the VCORE's are 7% more flexible than the SV.

This new VCORE 98 Black features updates to the Aerodynamic fins — that were also featured on the SV. Yonex added fins positioned towards the bottom throat area of the VCORE frame to allow improved maneuverability. The Aero Fins remain along the inner & outer areas at the 2&10 o’clock positions — producing a fast, aerodynamic racquet that allows easy access to spin.

With a 98 square inch head, 11.4 ounces strung weight and an updated 16x19 string pattern from the SV's 16x20 string pattern; the VCORE 98 is an excellent option for the intermediate to advanced player seeking a fast, aerodynamic racquet that allows easy access to spin.

For Optimal String Performance Yonex Recommends:

  • Durability: Yonex Poly Tour Strike
  • Playability: Yonex Poly Tour Pro

I ordered this racquet after playing with the Wilson Blade 98 prior. I had it strung with Babolat Power 17 gage string at 53 lbs. I love this racquet it gives me everything I was lacking in the Blade, the feel and touch is superior, the power it generates with so little effort, the ease to access spin by dropping the racquet head below the ball, and I am serving lights out with it. I usually play 3 hours a week and I am planning on ordering another one. I highly recommend this racquet.

Great racket for advanced players who generate their own power. Great control for those bigger hitters. Only downside is with the thin beam we have had several crack.
