The September issue of Australian “Tennis” Magazine ran a feature titled, “The Ultimate Tennis Racquet Review,” and the YONEX VCORE Tour 97 was selected as the best performing racquet.
The experienced team at Tennis World, Melbourne Park carried out some extensive racquet testing on the racquet’s performance—which is suitable for social to experienced players. The coaches and players completed a set of drills with each frame, and individually assessed each racquet’s performance based on the following criteria: Power, Control, Feel, Spin, and Ease of Use. All criteria were rated out of 10, and racquets were given an Overall Rating at the end.
The VCORE Tour 97 was described as a solid choice for advanced players in search of a precision frame, and received the following scores.
Power: 8, Control: 8, Feel:7, Spin: 7, Ease of use: 9, Overall: 8.5 (by Coaches)
Power: 8, Control: 9, Feel: 10, Spin: 8, Ease of use: 9, Overall: 9 (by Players)
