Beginning and intermediate level players looking for an easy-swinging, powerful frame will love the new Yonex Ezone DR 108. With the same frame size and weight as its predecessor the Ezone Ai 108, this 108 square inch oversize head combines with a wide body 26/29/24 mm tapered beam to provide power and stability, while a low 9.5 oz. strung weight lets you swing it effortlessly. An extra ¼ inch of length and open 16x18 pattern allow that little bit of extra leverage, power and spin. The Ezone dr 108 sports 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.
