The Yonex EZONE 98L Sky Blue Tennis Racquet 7th Gen is for the intermediate to advanced player looking for a lighter racquet to dominate with controllable power and comfort. Being slightly lighter than the Yonex EZONE 98 this racquet offers better mobility. Technology: Isometric - Developed over 30 years ago, the Isometric design increases the sweet spot by 7%. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped Isometric racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. Isometric technology delivers greater control without sacrificing power. Liner Tech - For improved power and comfort. Straight hole grommets elongate the strings to optimize power and comfort on off-center shots. Oval Pressed Shaft - First introduced in 1969 with the T-7000 - Yonexes first aluminum tennis racquet - the Oval Pressed Shaft (OPS) is still incorporated into their most popular racquet series today. The Oval Pressed Shaft is designed to give players more spin, control, and feel. The shaft flexes at impact, increasing dwell time and minimizing vibrations. Vibration Dampening Mesh - First used in snowboards to reduce vibrations at impact, Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) is now used in four Yonex racquet series. VDM is a stretchy mesh material that is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations and improve touch and precision. 2G-Namd Speed - Improved feel and ball speed. A high modulus graphite fibers are bound with a carbon nanotube (CNT) structure, reducing energy loss, which enables to transfer the energy into quick snapback. Aero Shape Design - For a plush feel. An inverted frame design with a thinner frame face results in a softer racquet. Shaft Design - For improved stability and power. A thicker shaft structure with a convex design reduces unwanted racquet torque on off-centered shots for added power. The Yonex philosophy has always remained the same: to contribute to the world through innovative technology and the highest-quality products.
