TOKYO, Japan — The 6th-generation EZONE series has already achieved global recognition since launching in January 2020. With a focus on easy power and unmatched comfort, the EZONE series features the largest sweet spot1 in Yonex history through ISOMETRICTM expansion and was developed for players of all levels.
Now, the power-oriented series has added three new specs to its line-up – EZONE TOUR, EZONE 98+, and EZONE 100+ – targeting intermediate to advanced players.
Added for the first time to the EZONE series of racquets, the EZONE TOUR features a 98 sq.in. head size and is the heaviest EZONE available, weighing 315g / 11.1oz and comes with an added boost compared to the EZONE 98. With the balance being 5mm more and the base composition being softer, the EZONE TOUR has more power and control for experienced players.
For the EZONE 98+ and EZONE 100+, a half inch is added to the current EZONE 98 and EZONE 100 for baseliners looking for greater reach and more power. In comparison, the long-body frames are more head heavy compared to the standard length EZONE’s (27in.), resulting in more pace on the ball.
The EZONE 98+ and EZONE 100+ will launch on May 22, 2020 while the EZONE TOUR will launch on July 24, 2020. For availability, please check with your local Yonex representative or authorized retailer.
Enhanced Sweet Spot
A new frame shape that is wider at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions creates the largest sweet spot in EZONE history.
New Aero-Shaped Frame
For a plush, comfortable feel
By varying the outer angle of the aero-shaped frame, the middle and upper hoop are plush, while the lower hoop is stable.
Power with a more flexible frame
A strong, elastic graphite is added in the throat to improve frame stability and flex.
Oval Pressed Shaft (OPS)
Increased spin and control
Shaft corners are rounded for an ideal flex at impact to increase dwell time for optimal spin and directional control.
For improved power and comfort
Straight hole grommets elongate the strings to optimize power and comfort on off-center shots.
Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM)
For added touch and precision
A stretchy mesh material is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations.
