i recently purchased a yonex ezone xi 100 after what seemed to be a positive demo and reading the great reviews. i want to like this racket but find myself shanking a lot of balls (far more than usual!). i see in the reviews that this is common and that there is an adjustment period, but if you like this racket, how long did it take you to stop having this problem? i also saw in the one of the reviews that someone suggested that the racket plays smaller than 100 sq in. so i'm trying to figure out if i just need more transition time or if maybe this racket isn't for me.
