Hit the Ezone Tour and the Blade Pro side by side today. Both strung with Tour Bite 1.20 at 50 lb. The EZT outperformed the BP in every category. I think the softness of the throat and shaft of the EZT help with string longevity since the frame absorbs a lot of the ball impact which seems to put less strain on the strings. Well done Yonex.Has anybody else noticed super good string life with the 20 ezones compared to most 16x19s? The spacing is fairly middle of the road, but I've got this gut/poly job with about 30 hours on it that I topspin the heck out of and its still not that close to breaking.
Maybe the modified isometric shape does a good job of distributing the impact more to the outer mains? Wasn't a Yonex person before getting the 20 EZ but man does it keep impressing me.
