Yonex EZONE 100 (300g) Racquet Review

The EZONE 100 is built for intermediate and advanced players who want a maneuverable player’s racquet with easy targeting. Like its predecessor (the DR version), this racquet’s controllable power provides a recipe for aggressive and confident ball striking. According to Yonex, this model features an expanded sweetspot thanks to an updated Isometric head shape. Yonex has also retooled the grommet system with its Micro Offset Layout technology, which enables the strings to soak up greater vibration at impact (think more comfort). Additional updates include the use of a hyper modulus graphite (Hyper-MG) in the upper hoop and shaft. The upshot, according to Yonex, is less frame bending at impact, resulting in greater energy transfer to the ball. According to our playtesters, this racquet feels firmer and crisper than the previous generation, especially on balls contacted in the upper hoop. From the baseline, the EZONE 100 is more powerful than the EZONE 98. Spin comes easy, and there’s enough heft for driving the ball effectively through the court. At net the EZONE 100 moves fast and delivers enough pop for finishing points with authority. Aggressive servers should love the combination of speed, spin and power. Ultimately, with some impressive updates to the construction and grommet system, Yonex has added an impressive chapter to the EZONE 100. This is a must demo for those who want a lively and spin-friendly player’s racquet.

Hi TW, Did you prefer the Yonex Ezone 98 or the Yonex Ezone 100

SuperSnorkelDuck says:

Benjamin G says:

What strings would you recommend for a lighter frame like the pro staff 97ls?

Rben Ulloa says:

TW team,
What’s better for spin,control,power
Lastest Wilson Blade 98
Wilson Ultra serena ( light blue and dark blue)
Latest Babolat Pure aero
Latest Babolat Pure drive
New Yonex EZONE 98
New Yonex EZONE 100
Wilson RF97 97

The Chairman says:

Fab reviews Brittany and Team. Seems like you had a better time of it during your playtests than the 98 bunch. They reported much more concern with the stiffness issues than you guys which is exactly the reverse of what I would have expected. Very strange.

Brandon Ortega says:

Would this racket be a good choice for someone like me who plays with a flatter style(eastern forehand)? If not what would be some other good recommendations?

Cameron Hylan says:

Hi, I am looking at changing racquet to either Ezone 100 or New Pure Drive, currently playing with Aero Pro Drive 2013. Which of those racquets has more control, I tried the new Pure Aero but had trouble with too much power, is the new Pure Drive similar to the Pure Aero, with the open string pattern that cause the ball to fly on you?

Saaand Har says:

I currently use the RF 97 and If I wanted to switch to this racquet I need to add weight to it, how much and where should I put the lead tape to get them to be similar?

Rben Ulloa says:

Te team,
I want to buy the new yonex ezone 100
Is the 100 version is like the Ai
Is the 98 like the Nick Kyrgios

Njoy Ever says:

only in lime cosmetics? not in blue version?

Leandro Guimarães says:

Good afternoon. What is better for a flatter style? Pure drive or Ezone 100? I had tennis elbow? What is most confortable in a long game?

Minecraft-skywars says:

TW I would like to know top rackets in your opinion I would like them to help with spin I don’t really care about the weight thanks for your help

Marcin Gaczor says:

Hi TW Team

Which of the recently launched updates You found the most solid overall?
Wilson Ultra 100CV, Babolat Pure Drive or Yonex EZONE 100?
I’m currently using Yonex DR100 300g and planning to upgrade soon.

Yukisan123 says:

What happened to Gran?

Los Sol says:

Hey TW! Are you guys going to review the lighter version of the EZONE 98 too? The 285 grams?

Sour Lime says:

The yonex website says that the DR100 is made in Japan.
The yonex website does not say where this racquet is made….

I’m assuming China?


Hopefully the Blue DR100 stays on sale/in the product line for many more months. Superior paint job and probably better quality control than this new one

Tommy Wiseau says:

Chris looking like someting outta star wars

seth makechnie says:

Britany, what tension and strings are you using in the Pure Drive Tour 2018 test right now?

Senator Seth says:

Brittany- It looks like you’ve chosen the Ezone over the PD 2018. What put it over? I know you prefer the serve with PD, was the return better, the feel? Have you played with the PD Tour yet, what are the specs, and the release date in January of 2018?
