Racket Review: Yonex VCore SV95

Yonex (1) (2)

We put the Yonex VCore SV95 to the test

The Yonex VCore SV95 was included in tennishead's 2017 racket reviews for advanced players and it's not suited to those seeking extra pop on their shots.

At 95 square inches the head size of the Yonex VCore SV95 is at the smaller end of our advanced rackets. The vibrant red and black look was a positive element from our testers.

Unfortunately, the testers couldn’t pull off a Stan Wawrinka ripper of a backhand with the VCore SV95 with it providing just an average amount of power and a lack of spin. Elliot said: “I really struggled to generate any spin with this racket, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t generate any speed.”

It ranked better at the net as the narrow beam provided greater control but the lack of feel from the back of the court and the general stiffness of the racket left the testers less than impressed.

Tennishead's 2017 advanced racket reviews were published in the April edition of the tennishead digital magazine.  Download the tennishead magazine app for free to read the reviews in full.
