We’re taking a first look at the brand new Yonex VCORE Tour F 97. Due to be released early February, this is the next evolution of the popular VCORE series. With ambassadors Borna Coric and Sabine Lisicki already backing it, the VCORE Tour F 97 looks set to be a hit.
Yonex’s latest offering promises smooth swings with a 6% increase in serve speed thanks to their new Aero Fin Technology, which involves a unique frame construction that equips fins at the frame head. When tested against traditional frames, the VCORE Tour F 97 was found to have 14% reduced air pressure at the top of the head.
A new 16/21 string pattern also offers increased power and better control, while a 3D vector shaft extending from the grip up into the frame create a superior amount of face stability and more efficient power. Plus using black micro core technology consisting of carbon and graphite elastic particles, face stability is increased even further and with better vibration dampening.
