      5.00 XIOM Vega Tour - The Upgraded Vega Pro
      • Grippy TopSheet
      • High Control
      • More Speed

      As the title says. I'm a long time player of the Vega Pro (VP) and after playing the Vega Tour (VT) now for a bit over 30 hours, I will stick to it on my FH.

      The additional speed of the Vega Tour come in handy with the new plastic ball. The new top sheet generates even more spin on touch play (slow FH loops, flicks et al).

      Blocks and drives are consistent and with high control. With the top sheet being thinner and more flexible, the rubber is a bit more sensitive to incoming spin, but that was true for the VP as well, so for players coming from the VP not a big surprise. It needs adjustment during receive (especially side spin) and block (more active blocking required).

      Looking at the specs the new VT comes with all the new "features" of XIOM (Elasto Futura Cycloid and the new carbo sponge) if you believe in these marketing terms.
      With it's 45° sponge, it still plays more like a 47,5° sponge. See my review in forum section to see the different composition.
      A fact to notice is that the VT is lighter (4 grams cut to a Vega Tour Blade) than the VP, which is good if you like your racket not too head heavy.

      All in All a good addition to the Vega Series of rubbers and another example of XIOMs innovative cooperation with ESN.
