Stringing information for Yonex VCORE Duel G 97 (330g) (Wawrinka) Racquets: Tension range 50 to 65 pounds, optimum 57.

Developed with input from Stanislas Wawrinka, the VCORE Duel G 97 (330) is a very solid player's racquet. Like its predecessor (the Tour G 330), this stick is perfect for experienced ball strikers who want the rock solid stability and ball crushing plow-through of a traditional player's racquet. This model also features Yonex's new Tough G Fiber, a uniquely resilient material added to the frame's midsection to help the racquet return more energy to ball. Other updates include Yonex's new Lock Booster System - a technology that features tighter spacing between the upper cross strings as well as ridges in the grommet channels to minimize string movement. The result is greater control (and confidence) when attacking the ball. From the baseline the Duel G 330 does not get pushed around. Big hitters who can deploy this racquet's mass will be able to drive the ball powerfully and accurately through the court. Thanks to Yonex’s time-tested Isometric head shape, this racquet’s compact 97inČ head feels generous without sacrificing an ounce of precision. At net this stick plays fast for the weight, and there's easy depth to be had on block volleys. Finally, the Duel G 330 remains wonderfully steady when redirecting the pace of big serves. With this update, Yonex has delivered a formidable weapon to advanced players and strong intermediates. With its stable feel, easy targeting and ball-crushing momentum, the VCORE Duel G 97 is a very solid player's racquet.

*This racquet is compatible with the Sony Smart Tennis Sensor.

ISO (Isometric Square Head Shape)
This exclusive Yonex innovation results in a sweet spot up to 48% larger than a traditional oval head shape. According to Yonex, it ensures more power and control with fewer off-center shots.

3D Vector Shaft
Deeper groover in the shaft to improve racquet stiffness and reduce twisting. The result is an increase in power and precision. Please Note: Yonex updated their V-Core Technology starting with the 2014 fall/Winter VCore line. The updates include grooves that extend all the way from the grip through the throat. Also, the Lower throat section was built up to add stability.

Micro Core
Reinforced areas at 10 and 2 o'clock provide greater stability, power and spin in the functional areas of the upper hoop where many advanced players make contact. Yonex adds carbon graphite and elastic particles to increase face stability and vibration dampening.

Tough G Fiber
A highly highly resilient material applied to the racquet's midsection to facilitate frame snapback

Lock Booster System
Tighter spacing for the upper crosses coupled with a grommet/bumper system that locks the strings into place.
