Racket review: Yonex VCORE Si 100 LG

Yonex

Yonex have engineered a frame that would not look out of place in the advanced racket test

The Yonex VCORE Si 100 LG was voted best for feel by our testers in the 2015 intermediate racket reviews

On paper, the specifications put the VCORE firmly in our intermediate category - below 300g, wide beam, midplus head size, slight heady-heavy balance - but within those parameters Yonex have engineered a frame that would not look out of place in the advanced racket test.

Designed with spin in mind, the string pattern feels denser than the 16x19 configuration would suggest, making the sweet spot ver sweet, but shots caught away from the middle can be wayward.

If you are used to playing with a pro fram and are keen to drop the weight, take it for a test drive, but for those venturing into the intermediate category for the first time, approach with caution.
