The EZONE 98 from Yonex is engineered for intermediate to advanced players looking to dominate with controllable power and comfort.
Now the 6th generation of the EZONE series, this edition again improves on its predecessors. Yonex is always innovating and tweaking designs to bring the best quality racquets to the market.
This update incorporates the vibration dampening mesh we saw in the Vcore Pro update, reducing vibration through the handle of the racquet and generating a smoother feel during ball impact. A small change to the grommet system called Liner Tech has adjusted the sweetspot for a denser string configuration increasing touch and control while widening the outer grommets for reduced vibration. The last new technology is M40X, an elasticated graphite built into the throat for better frame stability while maintaining the low flex of the racquet that contributes to its growing popularity.
If you’ve been watching the tour you may have seen an increase in players using Yonex and it’s mainly because of this racquet. Kyrgios and Osaka are the main advocates of this advanced frame, the smaller sweetspot and increased weight generate fantastic touch and precision from all corners of the court. At 305 grams it’s not as heavy as other ‘players’ racquets on the market but that is part of why we love it, the maneuverability and quickness on serve returns, volleys, or fast reaction shots really make this racquet shine. For competitive players that like to power through every shot and chase that perfect sweet spot feeling, the Ezone 98 is a must try!
