Now available in brilliant bright blue, the Yonex Ezone 98 Tennis Racquet will continue to be a favorite of aggressive players who love comfort and control. The Ezone 98 makes use of several new technologies to improve comfort and racquet speed. The new Nanometric DR material provides more flexibility and resilience to the frame to provide a faster frame snapback for improved ball speed, while the Oval Pressed Shaft offers increased flex and stability for added spin and control. Not to be outdone in the comfort area, Yonex’s Dual Shut System places shock-absorbing material in the throat and side grommets and grip to reduce shock by 50% over traditional frames. Adding to the comfort that this series is known for is Quake Shut Gel, which is a unique material designed to filter out unwanted vibrations in the frame before they reach your hand. Isometric Technology varies the depths of the grooves at the sides and tip of the frame to improve ball pocketing and shot response, resulting in a 7% larger sweet spot over traditional round-headed frames. It also produces a stronger shot response on balls hit higher on the face, just where modern players tend to make contact.

The Ezone 98 has a head size of 98 square inches, and strung weight of 11.5 oz (326g). Its head light balance and control-focused 23/24/19mm beam taper allow for bigger, more accurate swings.
