Yonex Vcore Xi 98 pics

Yonex truly makes the best racquets .
but why cant they do a better paint job ?
Why not blue or purple colours ?

This is confusing. I thought the Xi went w/ the Ezone lines? Why are they cross-pollinating sticks?

tistrapukcipeht 09-15-2012 12:59 PM

Vcores with Xi shapes??

Success to happen, because the Ezone Xis are very good, I liked the Xi shape much better, just bigger sweet spot, I liked the Xi 100 over Vcore 100S, Xi 98 was very nice too, but felt very heavy.

VCore Xi 100?? I'll be on the line to try this one.

I agree, blue it had to be.

I didn't like the VCores paint job, I love the vcore tour though, that is very beautiful, and I like the Ezone Xi.

I was about to buy the RDiS 200 Lite ( I think it is beautiful) but I will have to wait for the vcore 100 xi, or whatever they call it.

Hi,

how does the racquet play compared to the 98D? Is the mold the same?

tennisdj 09-15-2012 05:08 PM

What about the stiffness?

The mold isn't the same, the mold has the Xi shape now, the pics show it, obviously they will play differently because it also has the micro core, but we have to see how much different.

I will be looking at the VCore 100S Xi .

What are the specs of this and when will it be for sale...?

Based on this thread (pics more importantly), a little research shows this 98D's specs is exactly the same, only difference being the introduction on Xi and Micro Core, I'm already expecting they to play differently. My interest will be on the 100S

Yonex told me they would be considered minor uodates when i emailed about 2013.

right, the pics shoe micro core and Xi head shape, specs still the same.

people are raving about the micro core on the Vcore tours, now it will be on regular vcores with Xi, as I thought the xi was better than vcore, vcore+xi = me demoing at least and then deciding. :twisted:

The 95 will be interesting with the squarer frame.

I'm not sure I read TWU data correctly but it seems to indicate the usual Yonex hoop has a rather narrow sweetzone.

edwincen 09-15-2012 07:21 PM

WOW, hope there will be a 95 Xi

sargeinaz 09-15-2012 07:33 PM

Cant wait to see and demo the 95.

wrainsberger 09-15-2012 09:43 PM

Wow, nice looking racquet! Let us know how it plays.

Peter Szucs 09-15-2012 11:42 PM

Its team champs time here, i try to avoid testing new racqs. I only hit with this frame for 5 mins.. All i can say is that it feels flexy, has lowish power and good feel of the ball. The sweetspot felt big and consistent.

mirceam 09-16-2012 10:34 AM

how does it play ? is there a huge difference between the Xi 98D and the 98D?

crism54 09-23-2012 05:00 AM

thickness?

Then how come the old two-tone grommets fit the new ones?
