Featuring Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM), the new VCORE PRO 97 HD absorbs unwanted vibrations to give you more accurate feel and control over your shots. VDM is wrapped around the graphite in the grip section of the handle, reducing vibrations by up to 30% in the key area of the racket nearest to the hand. In addition to the performance benefits, VDM also minimises stress on the arm, limiting fatigue and helping to prevent injury.
The VCORE PRO also boasts YONEX’s trademark ISOMETRIC frame shape, increasing sweetspot size by 7%, along with NAMD graphite in the throat of the racket, which maintains flex during fast swings for supercharged power. Lock Booster grommets enhance energy transfer by encouraging greater string contact, resulting in huge spin potential for aggressive forehands.
The HD edition of the VCORE PRO 97 features an 18x20 string pattern for concentrated power, and weighs in at 320g – an ideal weight for confident players who enjoy hitting clean winners.
Please note that YONEX VCORE rackets do not include a protective head cover.

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