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.
Once I got to the courts 4S was about what I expected from a geometric poly—spin potential was above average and feel was solid though not as crisp as I typically like. The flipside is that 4S felt very soft and was one of the most comfortable polys I've used in quite a while. Fortunately the soft feel didn't come at the expense of durability. I played past the 12-hour mark with my set and didn't break it though they definitely felt a little dead towards the end. As I've noted in the past I find that most polyester strings go dead and lose tension well before they snap though I'd expect that heavy string breakers may break Black Code 4S before it goes dead or gets mushy.
Racquets (2-4): You obviously aren't getting too far in a match without these. However many people DON'T bring back up racquets in case something happens to the first one out of the bag. Your strings could break the racquet could slip out of your hand and crack your grip could get worn and slippery...if any of these things happen you should always have another racquet to pull out of the bag.
We love tennis. As with anything it isn’t perfect and never will be. We simply need to protect its image enjoy the here and now and ensure its future as it inevitably evolves into something slightly different. Society in general seems to be slipping into a less disciplined and respectful place. If tennis were to go the same way it would be a shame.
