New for 2021, Yonex updated the 2018 with an all-new VCORE 98.

Yonex has improved the VCORE to become an even more spin-friendly frame. They’ve made some big updates adding key technology pieces to the racquet — including new 2G NAMD flex force & VDM.

The all-new 2G NAMD is incorporated in the upper throat to the lower frame, all-new FLEX FORCE graphite allows for the racquet to quickly flex and snapback for maximum spin potential. To help achieve faster head speeds for increased spin potential, Yonex’s 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.

The new VCORE features Yonex’s signature racquet technology, Isometric Shape which generates a 7% larger sweet spot for great control without sacrificing power Yonex also improved the damping of the frame by including a stretchy mesh material wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations. .

With a 98 square inch head, a slightly lighter 11.2 ounce strung weight compared to the 2018 version and an 16x19 string pattern, the VCORE 98 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.

I loved the Vcore 98 2021 model because it's easy to spin, control. Maneuverability, durability was great. And I finally found a friendly stick that can save your elbow & shoulder.

Magical racquet

Such a great racquet – the best I've ever hit with. Not super powerful, but a great balance between ultra-control and strength. Lower the string tension a bit and it's a perfect racquet. Feels great with my rotator cuff issues. Wish I could buy 3 of these!

I have found this racquet to be a little stiffer than my Wilson but the transition has been fun. I have plenty of power and control. I have had several people ask to borrow it and they also liked the way they hit with it. .
