Yonex’s growing success continues into 2020 with an update to the EZONE line. The latest iteration of the EZONE line comes in the form of the EZONE 98 Tour. This racket continues to be a go to option for players seeking a balance of control, power, and comfort. Updates to the layup of the racket including Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM), and a new graphite composition (M40X) allow for a softer more flexible feel compared to the previous version without sacrificing any of the power.
We found the EZONE 98 Tour to be fast swinging through the air weight while offering a more solid feel from the baseline compared to the lighter EZONE 98. We also found this racket to most closely resemble the much beloved Yonex DR 98. This racket is best suited for players able to generate their own power and are looking for some added control and plenty of feel.
