NEW VCORE PRO: Crush with Control

Date
22 July 2019

TOKYO, Japan — Yonex is proud to announce an update to its most advanced racquet, the VCORE PRO. Equipped with Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) to filter unwanted vibrations, the VCORE PRO is designed for heavy-hitters looking to crush with control.

Through extensive research, Yonex found the overall length of rallies and ball speed increased at the professional level. As matches become longer and more demanding, top players depend on a racquet that has a unique balance of ball-crushing power, control, and comfort.

The VCORE PRO incorporates Namd*, a revolutionary graphite that maintains its flex at high swing speeds, into the throat of the racquet for heavy drives. The improved throat design that features optimum torque coupled with a grommet structure that promotes efficient energy transfer for ball-crushing spin results in 4% more spin, 2.7% more speed, and a 10cm higher bounce***.

The most innovative feature to the new VCORE PRO is the VDM wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter 30% of unwanted vibrations**. In addition to reducing fatigue, this stretchy material adheres well to graphite resulting in improved feel for precise ball control.

Three-time Grand Slam Champion Stan Wawrinka (SUI), who won Grand Slams in three consecutive years after switching to the VCORE series, will begin using the new VCORE PRO at the Rogers Cup in preparation for the US Open. Frances Tiafoe (USA), debuted the racquet at the BB&T Atlanta Open last week.

 

Innovation

ISOMETRICTM
Larger Sweet Spot
Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%** Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing intersecting main and cross strings.

Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM)
For added touch and precision
VDM is a stretchy mesh material that adheres well to graphite to reduce arm fatigue. Integrated within the grip, VDM minimizes vibrations by 30% resulting in improved feel and precise ball control.

Namd*
For heavy drives
Incorporated in the throat of the racquet, this revolutionary graphite maintains its flex during fast swing speeds so you can overpower with heavy drives.

Lock Booster
For ball-crushing spin
An enhanced grommet design promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer and ball-crushing spin. The strings ‘lock’ against the ball, resulting in more surface area of the ball hitting the string bed. At contact, there is greater opportunity to fire-off aggressive, attacking spin.

*Namd is a technology developed by Nitta Corporation to uniformly disperse carbon nanotubes into carbon fiber composites.
