Players seeking a thin beam control oriented racket in a manageable weight need to try the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 G. Weighing in at 310 grams, 20 grams less than its heavier sibling, the VCORE Pro 97 G offers plenty of feel, with little negative feedback and shock thanks to the addition of vibration dampening mesh. With its head light balance and thin beam, we found this racket to swing through contact quickly for its weight. Its open 16x19 string pattern offered plenty of spin potential, giving players greater confidence to swing freely. Power does come at a premium however, as this is very much a control oriented racket, so it will be up to the player to generate any extra pop. The Yonex VCORE Pro 97 G is a great option in the players racket category, and a must demo for anyone looking for a comparable racket to a Head Prestige or Wilson Pro Staff.
