Good to see Yonex maintaining its base as an eastern european chick stick!
They have one of the best players sticks right now too, at least in my opinion. 97HD is an awesome stick.Good. The Aero and Pure Drive lines are lower quality frames and it is nice to see the tweener category be taken over by better products not just the reigning brand.
They have been since the AI/DR days. I see a lot of Yonex sticks at my club now. Have played a few guys using/trying the new VCores, and have seen quite a few guys with EZones. Although these would be more "tweener" or "modern players" i guess. Then there's me with my 97HD, although it's currently sitting in the bag.Find Yonex making inroads in the American market for mens player sticks (and many pro men play them) but they seem non-existent for rec women in my area.
I hear a lot about this QC but have yet to see it myself. I’ve had several Yonex that were just as off as any Babolat I’ve ever had.Well a brand with great QC, only a few lines of models but with a clear dna so the customer know what he’s buying, made in Japan production, less technology gimmick and great PJ: reminds me of Head when they were still in Austria. You can’t go wrong with such a good and honest formula
My VC95 came in spot on for static weight/balance as published. Yonex doesn't publish SW but I have 2 more on the way and I'll see how close they are. When I bought my new VCP 97 310 I checked a few in the store using their RDC and they were all very close in all measurements.I hear a lot about this QC but have yet to see it myself.

There’s threads on these boards with the new Vcore line having swingweights close to 20 grams off.
These Yonex racquets feel at home in Jpan where they are produced.Vondrousova still plays the E Zone with the (lime and black) 2018 graphics, while Bencic has the newer (blue) E Zone paint for the women's final. There's a chance Yonex will sweep the WS podium as well.
I realize I'm late to the party on this, but those threads are misinformed as 'officially' there is no spec from Yonex for swingweight. It's only a measured average that places like TW do as a courtesy to us. Posted specs by manufacturers are normally limited to static weight, flex, and balance.There’s threads on these boards with the new Vcore line having swingweights close to 20 grams off.
