    Yonex Ezone Tour 98

    I just made passionate but uncomfortable love with my new Ezone 98 Tour after watching that video.

    Pasting from my post on the other EZONE thread: I played with my new Ezone 98 Tour for a few sessions now after weighing it up match my regular 305g Ezone. At the same spec of 350g and 337SW, I honestly couldn't tell a difference between the two, I was hoping I could feel the slightly lower RA...

    I played with my new Ezone 98 Tour for a few sessions now after weighing it up match my regular 305g Ezone. At the same spec of 350g and 337SW, I honestly couldn't tell a difference between the two, I was hoping I could feel the slightly lower RA on the Tour and enjoy a softer response, but...

    Yonex Ezone Tour 98

    Got my strung with 16.6g worth of Kirschbaum Pro Evolution (1.25mm). Strung specs: 331.2g, 32.4cm, 321SW. Swingweight is underspec as expected, will likely throw in about 4-5g of weight at the top to make it my preferred 335SW.

    Picked up mine today. There was only one grip 3 from the shop, so I couldn't choose a head heavier one. I just weighed it and it came out to be 314.6g. Kudos to Yonex QC again, will update with strung specs and swingweight later!

    I modded mine way heavier, so I didn't modify my 2020 Ezone to match stock DR as they are quite similar in stock. But if you want to do this, somewhere around 2g at 12 and 3g at handle should do the trick, given their stock differences of ~5g static and ~7SW. But check your specs to be sure.

    For me, same. But I matched the specs to my DR and used the same strings & tension.

    For me, I use TW's tungsten so they come in pre-cut 3 grams. 3 grams at 12, 6 grams at 3+9 snd 12 grams on the grip. This gives an increase of around 20SW and 21 grams.

    I had been a long time DR 98 user since the blue one came out, and really enjoyed the comfort and feel of it. I recently switched to the 2020 Ezone 98, but I did not try the previous generation due to "stiff" reviews, so no comments on that. But feel free to ask me anything about this one vs the...

    Good call. Didn't know the new Ezone is capable of such greatness. See what they say about it below.

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    Strung up my trusty DR98 with a fresh bed of Kirschbaum and tried to smack some forehands with @Bender . Static 357g SW 335ish, 8-9HL. Cant do this with anything stiffer lol.

    Any resemblance to the DR is a plus in my book, and wallet.

    Hell, just use the DR mold, spray on a new paintjob, add some new "tech" to it, and Yonex can see their tennis racquet sales skyrocket for the next year.

    Agree, as most of us were expecting. But even with the new and improved look it won't convince me to go get one. Yonex go back to the DR!

    How to get used to higher SwingWeight

    Usually best practice is to gradually increase SW, I'd say by increments of 3-5. But as mentioned above you'll get used to it as you will be forced to adjust your technique. For a 4.5 you should have decent strokes, and probably want to really drive your shots given the opportunity. I'd say for...

    Same Swingweight, different lead placements?

    Liking all three lol, thanks @bkfinch . interesting mention on twistweight's impact on maneuverability. I ended up shifting half of the weight from 3&9, cutting that by half, then putting it at 12. The new SW is very similar and specs looks like what I want but will have a go with it on Monday.

    Same Swingweight, different lead placements?

    Thanks Irvin, I understand the part about adding weight = SW, and further away from balance point = higher SW. If I may clarify, my question is towards whether there is a difference in maneuverability between adding the same amount of SW to 3+9 compared to adding to 12.

    Same Swingweight, different lead placements?

    For a given racquet, assuming I can maintain the same swingweight but can choose one of the following: - More lead at 12, less at 3+9 - More lead at 3+9, less at 12 1) Will the balance be different if swingweight stays same? 2) Which one will be objectively easier to swing and generate racquet...

    People compare it because it is a natural potential upgrade path for any DR user, and that's what EZONE testers use as a reference point for DR98 users that are still considering or on the fence. I think everyone is free to compare any two racquets in their consideration, let alone a successor...

    Thanks. This seems to reinforce most of TW's and TT's general consensus with the new EZONE vs DR. Definitely sticking to my DRs for the time being. @Yonex, if you created this for DR98 fans, you messed up and you're at least not getting my money until you get this sorted.

    Does anybody know where I could find/buy all white circular vibration dampeners?

    Go to Ama*** (uk), type in Sampras vibration dampeners. First result.

    Grips: MOST are absolute crap. I can't play with anything else than Tournagrip

    OP and the rest of you have convinced me to go try these out, will update how it goes. Been a long time user of Yonex Supergrap and Wilson Pro so definitely in the same alley.

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    I have a gut feeling that is the case because the avid DR98 fans are turned off by the stiffness concerns expressed by TW and TT, so not many 98 users are as keen to go try/buy it. @Yonex, why change if it ain't broke bro.

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    Interesting idea. Never imagined you can achieve that SW at sub-12oz. How many grams did you add at 11-1? And keep us updated on how it plays versus regular DR98 at same SW.

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    After watching the TW video and seeing a lot of mentions for "stiff(er)", it really isn't what I hoped for as well. I, like many of you, am keeping an eye out to see if an upgrade is required, but to your point Casius, I personally don't feel it is justified if we need to adjust string tension...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    Well if they followed the formula from the DR series, it would be a Blue one around this time to winter next year, then followed by a plus 6 months later, so about June 2019 would be my guess. That said, if the Blue plus sold really well, maybe they'll come out with a green plus first 6 months...
