New for 2018, Yonex updated the 2016 Spin Vortex version with an all-new VCORE 98 Lite. Yonex has improved the VCORE to become an even more spin-friendly frame. They’ve made some meaningful updates adding key technology pieces to the frame — including new Aero Trench & Linear Tech.

To help achieve faster head speeds for increased spin potential, Yonex’s new Aero Trench reduces drag by uniquely hiding the grommets located at the top of the frame. This allows for easy maneuverability. Further adding to that spin potential, Yonex engineered straight grommet hole grommets that allow for more string movement on outer areas of the racquet.

This new VCORE features Yonex’s signature racquet technology, Isometric Shape which generates a 7% larger sweet spot for great control without sacrificing power.

Yonex has added N.A.M.D to the bridge of the frame -- this new graphite which was also featured in the VCORE Pro frames allows for more flex and torque at ball contact. Yonex has tested and reported that the VCORE's are 7% more flexible than the SV.

This new VCORE 98 Lite features updates to the Aerodynamic fins — that were also featured on the SV. Yonex added fins positioned towards the bottom throat area of the VCORE frame to allow improved maneuverability. The Aero Fins remain along the inner & outer areas at the 2&10 o’clock positions — producing a fast, aerodynamic racquet that allows easy access to spin.

With a 98 square inch head, a lightweight 10.7 ounces strung weight and a 16x19 string pattern; the VCORE 98 Lite is an excellent option for the intermediate to advanced player seeking a fast, aerodynamic racquet that allows easy access to spin.

For Optimal String Performance Yonex Recommends:

  • Durability: Yonex Poly Tour Strike
  • Playability: Yonex Poly Tour Pro

If selecting tension "Below Range", please note at checkout within the comments field your desired tension value.

Very arm friendly racquet with a lot of stability for its weight. Super precise but off shot hits will be just that...however that will hopefully make you a better tennis player in the long run...at least that is what I tell myself. The racquet really flies through the air during serving and overheads. As for spin, well, that is in the arm of the user, no? Enjoy!
