The 6th-Generation VCORE
Scientifically Crafted Spin
TOKYO — Yonex Co., Ltd. is proud to announce the launch of the 6th-generation VCORE racquet on Jan. 15, 2021. With a focus on spin and speed, the VCORE features a toolbox of spin waiting to be unlocked – heavy spin, attacking spin, topspin, backspin, side spin.
A new frame design shifts the widest part of the racquet towards the upper hoop for more string movement where players make contact the most. The frame thickness in the upper hoop is also reduced by 3% for increased racquet head speed.
2G-Namd Flex Force2, a transformation from the previous graphite used, is incorporated in the upper throat to lower frame, allowing the racquet to quickly flex and snapback for maximum spin potential.
Unique to Yonex, String Sync Grommets at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions move in sync with the main strings to increase string snapback speed, producing a ball that bites.
Now incorporated into all four of Yonex’s main racquet series, Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter out unwanted vibrations.
New designs and materials are crafted to produce a vicious racquet flex, heavy ball bite, and faster racquet head speed, resulting in 5.3% more spin and a 3% steeper drop angle1.
Three-time Grand Slam Champion Angelique Kerber (GER) and Denis Shapovalov (CAN) will debut the VCORE in early-January to begin their 2021 season.
The Yonex Stringing Team recommends pairing the new VCORE with these Yonex strings:
