Some of the game’s current players are incomprehensibly wonderful ambassadors of the sport. They are unlikely to vanish once they hang up their rackets.

Today the world’s leading tennis players are transitioning into a faster-paced game. For quicker points they strike the ball early from inside the baseline to aggressively overcome opponents. To meet the needs of our transitioning game the VCORE PRO incorporates a revolutionary next-generation graphite “Namd1” which allows players to grip the ball and fire-off aggressive attacking spin with its unique graphite properties. Coupled with the new LOCK BOOSTER grommet system that reduces energy loss the VCORE PRO is designed to increase spin by 4% 2 speed by 2.7% 2 and post-hit bounce height by 10 cm2 enabling players to deliver heavy accelerating spin shots to overpower the opponent and dominate points.
