Racket Review: Yonex V Core Duel G97


A solid reliable frame that ticked all the boxes

Boost your power with the Yonex V Core Duel G97

Following the trend of impressive model names, the V Core Duel G97 was the frame Yonex put forward for our advanced racket testing.

Both Sarah and Howard talked about how easy it was to generate power, with the former especially benefiting on serve, she revealed.

Both also said that control wasn’t too much of a problem but one of the more challenging elements was its weight. All in all, a solid reliable frame from the Japanese manufacturer that ticked all the boxes.

“It did appeal to me,” said Sarah, “but was maybe just a little too heavy for me.”
