Vcore 95 vs Ezone Tour

I currently have a Yonex Ezone Tour and like it a lot so far. I’ve heard lots of good things about the VCore 95, namely the control afforded by smaller headsize and 16X20 string pattern. Just wondering how the two racquets compare against each other in groundstrokes, volleys, offense/defense, and serving.

I liked the VCore 95 better. It is a slight downgrade in ease of use, but not nearly as much as a typical 95.

Compared to Ezone 98 Tour, I got better power, better control, better comfort, better precision, better touch shots / volleys, surprisingly similar spin (just a bit less if at all).

The only thing the Ezone T had over it for me was if I was striking the ball poorly, or dealing with an incredibly difficult ball coming at me while off balance. Ezone T has the edge in very defensive situations / reflex shots.

Hope this helps!

For me when I demoed the vcore 95. It had synthetic gut strings. But even with that the predictability and control was amazing. I could put my shots exactly where I wanted. I normally hit with 98sq in and didn't find the smaller head causing massive amounts of misshits.

I personally don't like the ezone tour and I used the dr98 for awhile too. The ezones are too muted for my taste now. But compared to the vcore. Power and ease is the trade off. Vcore I had to play very aggressively. Swing out on all my shots but I had no fear of going deep with the control it provided.

I think you should look up MyTennisHQ on YouTube. The guy literally has a video of him talking about the ezone tour being his main racket. Then a few month later a video why he switched to vcore95.

I only ever hit with the 98 tour briefly but the VCore 95 was my main racquet for a bit. It's an excellent frame that plays so much bigger than a 95 and gives you a good blend of power, control, spin, and touch. The only downside to the current Yonex lines is that they are all very muted and have practically nothing in the way of feel.

The head balance is different, so is the weight.
I'd have a hard time believing anyone who claims or said the 95 head size gives more control over the 98 because if you have a Regna 98, Vcore 98, Ezone 98 or Tour, any of them or go to a shop, lay the Vcore 95 over any of those 98s and you can not tell there is a size difference, it's miniscule and the sweet spots are similar size according to TW racket tool.

I tried the Tour, used the 95 for awhile, my take is if you are a pure pure pure 2 handed backhand baseline basher, you probably would lean toward the tour. If you are a 1 hander who hits flat and topspin and dabbles at the net, you might like the 95 more. There is more "magic" in the 95 as far as stability being good and maneuverability being great, but if you are a baseline basher, not sure how much you get out of maneuverability. Of course many different styles in between might like one or the other, but those are the extreme "types" I would imagine would love one and hate the other.
