Yonex VCORE Tour 89 Racquet

Yonex VCORE Tour 89

Players do not have much choice of racquets below 95 square inches anymore. The trend has been to increase the racquets instead and many are now around 100 square inches. These racquets give you excellent control and feel, but requires an enormous amount of precision. You really do not have much leeway in the timing and execution of the shots. They have to be full swings with good racquet speed in the middle of the racquet. Anything outside the middle is going to be very near the frame and is going to be the cause for some inconsistency.

This is not suitable for players with heavy topspin, as that easily causes some shots on the frame itself. However players that likes to minimize the distance that the tennis ball has to travel and therefore give opponents less time to react, will benefit from the control and power that this racquet provides. Players at the 4.5 NTRP level and above that are looking for great feel and control on aggressive swings are going to like the VCORE Tour 89. X-Fullerene technology in the 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock positions improves the stiffness and stability.
