Comments: If I already wasn't in love with my good old Wilson 7.3 Hammer Ti racquets, this Yonex would be my
go-to racquet. The feel was absolutely crisp, friendly on the arm, and not very jarring if you missed the sweet spot. Plow through
was excellent on all my strokes, especially the volleys. The player provides the proper technique, and the racquet does the rest of
the work for you. I was amazed at how easy it was to hit the ball, even those coming at me at rocket speeds. At 11.1 oz it was
right in my spec range. As of this writing the price is more than I'm willing to pay, but I'll definitely keep my eye open on this
racquet. Enjoyed it!
Comments: Love this racquet! Great combo of power and spin. Also very easy on the arm. I decided to try this one
when my Head Youtek Extreme cracked. Will be ordering another one soon!
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.
