The 7th generation of EZONE racquets from Yonex are here with improved power and feel! The EZONE 100SL is a lightweight and softer-feeling modern racquet suitable for beginning to intermediate players looking to improve their game with controllable power and comfort.
At 100 square inches, the average head size brings a balance of power and control. Its open string pattern should allow players easier access to spin and power. The weight, being lighter than average, will provide players with increased manoeuvrability resulting in an easier swinging experience for faster cuts at the ball to increase power and spin while influencing greater stamina over the course of a match to keep you at peak performance for longer. The balance is slighly head-light which maintains a blend between manoeuvrability and stability - great for faster cuts at the ball to improve spin and volleys as well as more impactful strokes for more powerful drives and return of serves. The racquet's flexibility is average which should provide a blend of stability and feel.
On the technology side, for the 7th generation of EZONEs, Yonex has implemented 2G-Namd material technology for improved energy transfer through the frame for a higher degree of "snapback" which brings easier access to its power. Yonex has also slightly increased the beam width to improve on stability and feel.
This version of the EZONE 100SL is great option for improving players looking for a modern frame with plenty of control, generous power paired with forgiving feel. The ease of the swinging experience with this frame is great and paired with the improved plush feel and Yonex's quality of design should mean this will be a popular frame and easy recommendation!
