New Yonex VCORE Racquets 2021

by TN

The new Yonex VCORE racquets 2021 have been revealed on the Yonex Instagram page. They will be reviewed on Tennisnerd in a near future.

I am waiting for demos of the new Yonex VCORE racquets and I will also be testing the new Poly Tour Rev string. My good friend Henrik sent me a few pics of the new VCORE paint job and I am keen to hear your thoughts.

This is the 6th generation of Yonex VCORE and launches on January 15th. They include technologies such as 2G-Namd Flex Force, String Sync Grommets, Aerodynamic technology, Liner Tech, and Vibration Dampening Mesh.

There will quite a few racquets in the VCORE line-up: 95, 98, 98L, 100, 100L, GAME, FEEL, 26, and 25.

Who is it for?

The VCORE line has quite a broad target group with racquets ranging from 95 to 100 and up to game improvement frames like GAME and FEEL. The tag line is Scientifically Crafted Spin, which means a focus on spin generation from technologies such as the Aerodynamic design and String Sync Grommets.

I have reviewed the previous versions of the VCORE line here:

Yonex VCORE 95
Yonex VCORE 98

The Yonex VCORE racquets are most famously endorsed by Denis Shapovalov and Caroline Garcia.

I am keen to hear your thoughts on the new paint job and what you think about the racquets when you get to try them. More to come as soon as I receive the racquets in hand. If you want the latest updates from Tennisnerd, please consider supporting the mission by becoming a patron.

I’m playing with the previous version of Vcore 98 with leather grip together with Yonex Poly pro tour 1.20 at 22 kilo which I like, will be very interesting to test this new generation and see whether it feels different. The strange thing about the generation that I’m playing is that when I demoed it from TWE, it had great pocketing and feel, and that is not the case with the ones I bought, even though it is the same frame, same string and same tension and I have used them for 6 months.

paint job is fail

Same specs as the latest V Core that was a great racket. Why pay the difference?

Horrible paint job

One of ugliest paint job from Yonex of all time.

Very much dropped the ball on the paint job. Local pro shop owner has apparently tried one and said it played really well. I’m currently playing with the 98 plus so I think I’ll wait on those.

They have given them a Gravity like shape and upped the power on the 95 – but also made it stiffer. Could be promising but the comfort on the 95 previous version was top notch, so you would hope they didn’t sacrifice that. Paintjob is just okay. Would be nice to understand the ‘flexforce’/namd2 tech better.

Hands down the worst paint job I have seen on a racket.

They need to rush the Galaxy edition into production ASAP

I personally prefer the “galaxy black” paint job. I’ve been playing with Vcores since generation one, and must say that this paint job is not attractive at all… last two generations were spot on in this subject. Curious to know how it plays, probably will be very close to my actual vcores 98 from the current generation.

Im switching to Yonnex Made In Japan not buying made in China crap anymore

Anyone have specs on flex ratings and swing weight? Interested in the 98…
