An upgraded version of the Yonex Ezone Ai 98 Lite, the all new Yonex Ezone DR 98 Lite will continue to be a favorite of aggressive players who love comfort and control. The DR 98 Lite starts from the same solid base as its heavier brother, its 98 square inch head combining with a manueverable 10.7 oz (strung). weight and head light balance, along with a control-focused 23/24/19 mm beam taper for control of bigger swings. The DR 98 Lite 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.
