Yonex EZONE

Yonex refers to its EZONE frame as The Easy One. Yes, it’s a play on its name, but it’s just as indicative of its performance. The franchise has become the company’s most popular thanks to its effortless power, comfortable response and user-friendliness. It’s one of those racquets you can pick and play with almost no learning curve.

For its 7th generation, Yonex has sought to refine the elements that players have come to appreciate in the EZONE. The Aero Shape design and Liner Tech grommet system have been updated to increase flexibility (up 16%) to improve feel at contact. The 2G-Namd Speed graphite in the throat and Vibration Dampening Mesh in the grip eliminate unwanted feedback more effectively than the outgoing model. To make sure stability and power aren’t compromised the beam width has been thickened slightly and the shaft given a more convex design.

As there are many members of the EZONE family, Yonex is embarking on a staggered launch. The 98 and 100 models will start things off in January. Players interested in the Tour and extended models will have to wait until summer. Here’s a look at the schedule, with dates subject to variability depending on market.Yonex refers to its EZONE frame as The Easy One.
