Comments: I normally play with a thin-beamed racquet with better control and maneuvability. And I also tried the
PD/APD and loved them for the spin and power, with the trade off of versitility. With recommandation from a Yonex user, I got
this one tapping my inner power/topspin tennis. I think this racquet is close to the APD for spin. After some experiments I placed
lead at 2 and 10. It has good spin and power for both baseline strokes and serve, and decent volley. I find myself hitting heavier
drives with a slightly lower ball trajectory. The feel is stiff but comfortable. In its stock form the swing weight is low and has a
sense of hollowness. This may be a unique Yonex racquet feel need to adjust to. One feature I do not enjoy is the handle. It feels
firm and at least half size bigger. But the original grip is so thin that it is very hard to downsize. Also, I hold forehand grip very
low, and find the small butt cap really uncomfortable. Overall it is a good topspin racquet with a different feel from Babolats.
However, if you are sensitive to grips and buttcaps you probably have to customize it instead of keeping the stock form.
Comments: I tried this racquet for few days as a demo. My main racquet is the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick. I quickly
noticed both have almost the same feeling. Great balance with a free feeling of hitting through the balls. I would say the Yonex
VCORE Xi 100 has a slightly smaller sweet spot (or different shape of sweet spot than the Babolat) so it is more unforgiving for
off-center hits especially on the volleys. I felt hitting close to the sideline seems slightly easier than with the Babolat. It might be
due to the shape or thickness of the frame, hitting a slice spin serve felt a bit difficult. I love the dark red and white color.
Comments: I have been playing with the older version of this frame and had added about half an ounce onto the
frame. I ordered this VCore Xi 100 and played some doubles today. I found the racquet was a great doubles racquet. It has some
serious pop when volleying and I could generate great spin and power on my ground strokes. I was expecting to have a little bit of
an adjustment learning curve serving but the racquet was excellent hitting the corners and delivering kick serves. I love the frame
and would recommend it to any 4.0 to 5.0. who wants to improve their punch and maneuverability up at net.
Comments: I have played with the RDIS 300 and then the VCore 100s. The XI 100 gives you more power, with
control. A little stiffer than the 100s, but much more solid, specially on the upper side of the raquet. The 100s I had to add weigh
get the stability I wanted The Xi has a more solid feel, and stands better against hard shots. I'm using AluPower Rough, 16, 24Kg.
Comments: This is the racquet. I'm a former user of the Babolat AeroPro Drive, and I switched to the Yonex Vcore
S and it was a whole new world of difference. Now I'm playing with the Vcore Xi 100 that was my Christmas present, as I got 2 of
them. This is what I call a real Christmas present, because this racquet is just much better than the older one. It feels a lot more
solid with more control and power. Basically everything else is the same, but it plays a lot better which surprised me. I'm also
Yonex Poly Tour Pro that goes really well with this racquet. I play second class tennis here in Brasil.
