    Yonex EZONE 2020 AO

    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...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    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...

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    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...

    how many racquets do you carry in your bag?

    Two of the same. Second one as a backup or when the main racquet loses too much tension. I have no problem with people wanting to play around with different sticks for fun, but for me, once I find the right specs, I make sure i have two of them, and just focus on my technique and game play...

    Interesting to see that the 100 has a higher swingweight than the 98!

    I've won against top 100 in my city but if that's 3.5, then either the tennis players in my city of 8 million people are all terrible, or I'm just a 2.5, haha.

    Haha i would agree, at least 4.0. Solid strokes, stable footwork, good directional control and placements. They are quite obviously holding back their power for the sake of the video, testing the ezone, and just goofing around and having fun.

    They've historically been (and still are) focusing on and making money with their Badminton line. Call me biased, but I do think the popularity of the DR98 (which started from the AI98) is a factor in their recent increased interest towards investing more in Tennis. As a consumer, I love to see...

    Agree to your agrees. I guess then we should expect a smexier blue one in November-ish?

    As a super-fan and user I've been so looking forward to this, honestly a bit disappointed on the PJ, 6.5/10 for me. You can tell they made a really good product with the previous DR since they didn't change a thing in terms of specs. I'm now hoping that the real thing looks much better than the...

    THE MIGHTY PRO STAFF 90 THREAD

    Even at 365g strung? Totally agree on giving consumers more accurate info, I think all manufacturers or retailers should do this. When I visited Japan, I went into a shop where each racquet had a card on it that showed all specs (including static, SW, balance, stiffness) relevant to that...

    THE MIGHTY PRO STAFF 90 THREAD

    @Bender, the one I gave you is actually from a pair that I got from them. No major issues except being off-spec as you know, extremely low SW and very head-light. But for my case, Wilson is the one to blame on that one. Grip sizes were correct for me. Guess I just got lucky...

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

    Any news on the next DR? The teaser its not enough and its killing me. Seems like a black + green PJ perhaps? If that's the case, would look sick with a full bed of Hyper Gs.
