Racquet of choice by Stanislas Wawrinka, the VCORE Tour G (330) has impressive stability, plow through and precision. Advanced players who swing big will be able to hit a heavy, spin loaded ball with this one. Even more impressive is this stick's accuracy on full swings, a fact that should enable aggressive ball strikers to step on the gas and close out points. While the overall feel is crisp, Yonex adds some arm-friendly flexibility to the shaft with its Neo CS Carbon Nanotube material. From the baseline plush and very stable against pace. Even the upper hoop feels solid thanks in part to the addition of Micro Core technology, which strengthens the racquet at 10 & 2 o'clock. Not only does the racquet have enough plow-through, pop and spin potential to satisfy the modern power player, it's also solid enough for the grinding counter puncher who likes to redeploy incoming pace with relentless consistency and placement. At net this one is rock solid and unfazed by pace. It has enough mass to keep defensive stabs deep, with plenty of "put-away power" for those who punch the ball with authority. Serving with this one is all about control. However, for those who can get the mass moving, there is definitely some heat to be had. All in all Yonex has produced another stick that will give 4.5+ players everything needed to play at a very high level.
