Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 Tennis Racket Review
If you were a fan of the Tour G, then we suggest that you give the Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) a test drive.
Like its predecessor, it offers exceptional heft and a feel that’s perfect for experienced players, though the performance of the Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) comes with subtle improvements.
For one, The VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) made us feel more connected to the ball as it launched off the strings with pop, thus giving us a more responsive feel and allowing us to execute feather touch shots and rip topspin shots with relative ease.
The racquet’s hefty-style frame also allowed us to drive the ball deep into the court, giving us an avid appreciation for the topnotch control and razor-like precision that the VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) offers at contact.
From The Baseline:
Already a fan of heavier racquets, we were immediately comfortable with the VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) and felt right at home with it.
It took no time at all to adjust to the weight of it and we noticed the improvements over the previous Tour G version right away.
We loved the rock-solid stability and connection we felt with each shot and how well this racquet allowed us to flatten out our groundstrokes to get them moving through the court.
Volleys At The Net:
Even with it being a sub 12-ounce racquet, shots hit out toward the tip of the stringbed were effective as long as we got the racquet into position.
Because of its heft, we had our hesitations when it came to serving with the Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 (330g), but as it turned out, this racquet continued to impress us during this part of the test as well.
We can’t stress enough how its power, stability, and accuracy made a difference. We were hitting 120 mph regularly with our serves and were getting amazing slices and kicks when going after second serves.
In conclusion, we were more than pleased with the feel and responsiveness of the Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) and recommend it for both experienced players and anyone else who’s serious about the game.
