Yonex adds another chapter to one of their most surgical player's racquets. It's called the VCORE 95 and it has been reengineered with a new beam construction and material technology. With its compact head, sub-325 swingweight and moderate stiffness level, this stick combines the traditional virtues of control and feel with impressive levels of speed and spin. In addition to getting updated with a slightly thicker, more powerful beam, Yonex has widened the racquet's head north of the 3/9 o'clock axis, resulting in a more powerful and spin-friendly hitting experience. For 2021, the VCORE 95 features some impressive technology updates, including Flex Force, which uses a uniquely flexible graphite (NAMD2) in the lower hoop/upper shaft to help the racquet bend more optimally at impact. Yonex has also redesigned the grommet system with String Sync, which utilizes funnel shaped inserts to help the strings snapback powerfully during impact. Additional technologies include a Vibration Dampening Mesh in the handle for added comfort, along with several aerodynamic features that reduce wind drag for easier acceleration. On the court the VCORE 95 not only delivers outstanding ball feedback, the compact head makes it feel like a scalpel on full swings. The headlight balance and low swingweight translate seamlessly to hitting shots on the run or whipping up vicious head speed when loading the ball with spin. This stick also shines at net where it feels solid against pace while also moving quite fast when the pressure is on. With some impressive updates to the feel and beam construction, the VCORE 95 keeps getting better. Experienced players looking for a speedy and surgical midsize racquet with outstanding feel should start here.
