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.
