Yonex EZONE Xi 98 Tennis Racquet

Yonex EZONE Xi 98 Tennis Racquet
Description
The Yonex EZONE Xi 98 offers an new player-oriented specification in the EZONE series and will be used by Ana Ivanovic in 2012. Features new Extra Isometric design which expands the sweetspot and reduces frame vibration, offering improved frame stability, response and stiffness. New wider/deeper frame cross section at the 4 corners on the frame and NeoFade dampening material along the sides of the frame for improved stability. Updated Oval Pressed Shaft cross section optimizes flex at key points of the beam.

The EZONE Xi 98 is optimal for the intermediate to advanced player with a faster swing looking for an excellent control oriented stick. Extra forgiveness from the 98 square inch head without diminishing the feel thanks to a thin 23/24/19mm tapered beam. Solid, damped feel thanks to the NeoFade dampening material, as well as crisp response from the X Fullerene and SD Grid matrix in the frame itself. Maintains the feel of a larger sweetspot than its 98 square inch headsize would suggest, feeling solid yet forgiving. Heaviest offering in the EZONE Xi series.

    After demoing 8 racquets, this ezone xi98 won! It feels like 75% babolat aero pro drive and 25% yonex rdis200. Great spin & power but with more control than other pure drive types. Perfect racquet for big hitters that want spin and flexy feel.

    took a bit but love it

    Felt unstable at first, using poly and 52 tension. Almost shelved it. Then switched to multifilament at 59 and it is completely different. Super stable on hard service returns, baseline, and volleys from all angles. Replaced my rdis200 racquets with two of these. Love the open string pattern at 16x19.

    Excellent Racquet......!!!

    I have tested Yonex racquets in the past and I never had the feel for it. I have been playing with Wilson Pro Staff 90/95 Six-N-One model. The racquet gives you good power and control. However, after I have tested Yonex Ezone Xi 98, this racquet gives you a nice feel and comfort all around (server, ground stroke, short game and net game). I just purchased 3 of them.....!!! You should give this racquet a try and make sure the demo has the right string tension for you...

    I Like It!
