As the latest entry in YONEX’s ever-popular VCORE series, the VCORE 98 has a lot to live up to. This new revision is more focused on spin than ever, with every section of the racket having been adjusted to suit a spin-based game. The most noticeable addition is that of extra Aero Fins on the side of the frame – small grooves above the throat that encourage air flow in those crucial areas, making the racket more aerodynamic and thus faster through the swing. Continuing the focus on reducing air resistance, there’s also a new Aero Trench along the top of the inside of the hoop, a clever idea that has the effect of sinking the grommets into the frame, making the racket 11% more aerodynamic. The grommets themselves have also been adjusted, now being straight-hole, rather than angled off, to allow more string movement and increased ball pocketing, further improving spin potential. The VCORE 98 also now boasts a 16/19 string pattern – another boost for players who like to put action on the ball. Finally, this latest generation has been updated with new 2G-NAMD Flex Force graphite, which maintains greater flex under load for reduced energy loss and rapid snapback. If your game’s all about spin, the VCORE is a racket you don’t want to miss.

Measuring Your Grip Size

Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.

Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:

Grip Size
USA (inches)
4 1/8
4 2/8
4 3/8
4 4/8
4 5/8

Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
