Players seeking a thin beam control oriented racket with plenty of weight for plow through need to try the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 HG. Weighing in at 330 grams, 20 grams more than its lighter sibling, the VCORE Pro 97 HG offers plenty of pop, plow through, stability, and feel for players who are able to wield this racket. 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, but if you are able to get this racket moving quick, I assure you the ball will follow suit, think Stan Wawrinka. The Yonex VCORE Pro 97 HG is a great option in the players racket category, and a must demo for anyone looking for a comparable racket to a Head Prestige MP or Wilson Pro Staff RF 97.
