Flex your control with the all-new 2021 VCORE Pro from Yonex! The 3rd generation VCORE Pro comes packaged with great new technology updates perfect for players looking to take control to the next level.

What's new within the VCORE Pro? Yonex has thickened up the frame design, widening the outer beam of the racquet which creates added frame stability and repulsion. Yonex adds in an all-new FlexCon System for the racquet flex and feel. The tapered and elongated box-frame shaft is now composed of Flex Force + Flex Fuse graphite for precise control. The Flex Fuse technology gives a softer feeling thanks to the integration of a shock-absorbing polymer integrated within the graphites resin, resulting in increased flex and a soft more plush feel. The Flex Force graphite is perfect for increased ball-pocketing, allowing the racquet to quickly snap back for greater spin and faster ball acceleration off the string bed.

The all-new VCORE Pro continue the use of VDM Vibration Dampening Mesh within the grip for added touch and precision. The racquet comes with Yonex's signature technology, a square-shaped Isometric design generating a 7% larger sweet spot. Yonex also continues the use of the Lock Boosters grommet system that promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer and power.

The Yonex VCORE Pro comes packed with a 97 square inch head, a hefty 12 ounce strung weight and a dense 18x20 string pattern that adds up to a players frame that offers excellent feel and flex with adequate control.

A Civilized Hammer
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

While I have and love my VCore 95’s, I wanted to see how much I could get from a heavier racquet directly from the factory. I’ve modified my 95’s which was great, but there’s no comparison to the weight and feel of the VCore Pro. Also, many of the racquet “nerds” who talk about the power a racquet has tend to ignore potential energy. Yes, this racquet is more flexible than the 95 and has a tighter string pattern. But there’s no design engineering that eliminates good ‘ole physics. This racquet is more powerful than the 95 because of that weight, and feels much smoother to boot!
