Yonex introduces the lightest and fastest member of the VCORE Pro family. Named the VCORE Pro 100 (280), this model replaces the Duel G Lite. Like its predecessor, this racquet is ideal for intermediate players who want easy acceleration, controllable power and great feel. It should also work for the strong beginner or rising junior who wants a racquet that will reward continued improvement.
In addition to an updated 16x19 string pattern (the previous model had a 16x20), the VCORE Pro 100 is built with a substance called NAMD, which is a resilient carbon material used in strategic locations to optimize the response. This racquet also has an Isometric head shape, giving it a more forgiving feel than many of its conventionally shaped competitors. The racquet also comes with a Lock Booster System which features raised ridges in the grommet strip for enhanced power.
From the baseline, the VCORE Pro 100 (280) offers easy targeting, raw speed and great feel. Thanks to an even balance, this stick has decent mass in the head, making it quite stable for its weight class. Finally, the combination of speed, spin and precision make this an easy serving racquet. With minor changes to the string pattern and feel, the VCORE Pro 100 (280) continues to be an obvious choice for the intermediate player who wants the responsiveness of a player's racquet minus the bulk.
