Yonex VCore 98 (2023) Tennis Racquet
THE ART OF SPIN
With its redesigned beam and softer feel, the VCore 98 2023 continues it's reign as one of the game's most well-built players' racquets. Like previous versions, this is a speedy spin monster with great ball feedback.
The VCore 98 is recommended for intermediate to advanced players looking for spin and speed.
The Yonex VCore Series is endorsed on Tour by Elena Rybakina, Caroline Garcia and Angelique Kerber.
Made in Japan for the ultimate in quality control.

ISOMETRIC™ - Yonex's signature technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRIC™ design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC™ racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings and delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
New Throat Design - 'T' and 'H' cross-sections provide 'torsional resistance' to help stabilize the racquet, reducing power loss.
Enlarged Frame Top - A wider frame at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock position increases the ball contact area, which produces a higher launch angle.
Silicone Infused Grommets - New silicone oil infused within the grommet allows the racquet to quickly flex and snapback into its original position.
String Sync Grommets - A thin grommet nozzle is inserted into a larger frame hole allowing the string to move together with the grommet for faster snapback.
2G-Namd Flex Force - Incorporated in the upper throat to the lower frame, new Flex Force graphite allows for the racquet to quickly flex and snapback for maximum spin potential.
Namd is technology developed by Nitta Co., Ltd. to uniformly disperse carbon nanotubes in carbon fiber composites.
Aero Fin - Aerodynamic fins have also been upgraded and positioned towards the bottom of the VCore’s frame. The new Aero Fins are strategically carved out sections that allow for improved maneuverability.
Aero Trench - To achieve faster head speeds for increased spin potential, the Aero Trench reduces drag by uniquely hiding the grommets located at the top of the racquet frame.
Shaft Design - A thicker shaft structure with a convex design reduces unwanted racquet torque on off-centred shots for added power.
Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) - A stretchy mesh material is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations. Improves touch and precision.
Liner Tech - Newly engineered straight hole grommets allow more string movement on off-centered shots.
