A great option for the intermediate player seeking all-around playability in a very light package, the VCore Xi Team updates the VCore 98 with high density urethane in the upper hoop. The result is improved stability and easier access to power. From the baseline the light weight translates into faster swings, allowing for easy depth and spin. Our TW testers found this racquet to offer exceptional responsiveness and control on slow to medium paced exchanges. The open 16x20 string pattern is not only lively and comfortable, but it also supplies all the bite needed for hitting effective spin. Finesse players will have enough feel on shorter strokes to execute touch shots. At net this racquet feels lightning fast, making it a great option for those who like to serve and volley. On serve there's easy spin and pace to be had thanks to how swiftly this one propels through contact. All in all this is a great all-court racquet for intermediate singles and doubles players in search of maneuverability and easy stroke production.
