Stringing information for :

The V Core Team offers many of the successful attributes of the V Core 98D, but in a more mobile package. Using a 3-D Vector shaft, V Core technology reduces twisting for better stability, helping deliver better control at impact with more ball bite, according to Yonex. This in turn helps produce a livelier ball and better ball placement. Coming in at 10.4 ounces strung, this lighter weight Team version allows an ease of swing with its excellent maneuverability. The 98 square inch head size with an open string pattern is very dynamic, allowing for a good amount of power. Our testers noticed a nice combination of mobility and forgiveness when hitting groundstrokes. A large sweet spot and open string patterned allowed good access to spin. At net, the maneuverability comes into play helping frequent the racquet into proper positioning. This also helped with more consistent solid volleys. All in all there was plenty of variety offered from all areas of the court, and those players looking to add weight will find this one a good candidate for customization. This racquet is a great option for the 3.5+ player.
