Blast off the new decade with Yonex's 2022 version of the EZONE 98L (285g) racquet. This year's model introduces the 2G-NAMD Speed for improved feel and ball speed. The new tech is composed of high modulus graphite fibers bound with a carbon nanotube (CNT) structure, reducing energy loss, which enables to transfer the energy into quick snapback. Also found in the new VCORE line, the Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM), is a stretchy mesh material wrapped around graphite within the grip, to filter unwanted vibrations. The third new introduction to this line is the Liner Tech system, which is an elongated grommet hole system to optimize power and comfort on off-center shots. The 285 gram weight and slight head light balance are typically used by players with medium strokes, who need their racquet to help generate some power. Intermediate level players love this frame because of Yonex's Isometric shape that provides more forgiveness and a larger sweet spot. With a 98 square inch head, the racquet offers precision and maneuverability that can't be found in larger head sizes. Overall a lovely racquet for intermediate players that are looking for a comfortable racquet with precision.
