Head to Head
The Vcore 100 is the better option in terms of power and spin, with the Vcore 98 being the better option if you want more control and a lower frame stiffness rating.
Both rackets are best used by intermediate to advanced tennis players, with 100 probably being the better option for intermediate players and the 98 the better option for advanced players.
I wouldn’t recommend these rackets to beginners, as I think there are a lot of better options out there.
