The EZONE 100 (285g) is the lighter, faster version of the standard EZONE 100. Like its DR predecessor, this racquet is ideal for intermediate players who want a fast swinging racquet that delivers easy access to pace and spin. It's also the perfect weapon for improving junior players who are ready to move into a heavier racquet.
According to Yonex, the EZONE 100 (285g) comes with an updated Isometric head shape, resulting in an even bigger sweetspot. Yonex has also updated the grommet system with a Micro Offset Layout technology, which enables the strings to soak up greater vibration at impact. Additional updates include the use of hyper modulus graphite (Hyper-MG) in the upper hoop. According to Yonex, this enables less frame bending at impact, resulting in greater energy transfer to the ball.
On groundstrokes the EZONE 100 (285g) offers impressive stability for its weight. It manages to feel comfortable and dampened without compromising the crisp and connected feel so crucial to control. The mobile feel and easy acceleration not only translates nicely into pace and spin but it will also help you flick the ball deep when defending.
Offering a crisper and livelier feel than the previous generation, intermediate player who is looking for an easy swinging racquet with great feel and playability should give this one a try.
