Yonex EZone 98+ vs Yonex EZone DR 98+

#1
Chris I know the DR 98 + was a favorite of yours and Andy’s
So if had to play a tournament and only options were the old DR 98+ or the new EZONE98 +
What would you pick and why

So TW Upcoming match and need to restring , today
An answer on preference would be appreciated
I know individual choice but go back and forth and not a lot of playing time with newer EZone
So play testers experience and comments would be greatly appreciated

While both racquets offer excellent power potential, the main difference is the feel of the two frames. The DR98+ is softer and more plush, and the Ezone 98+ is more modern and crisp. I think the EZONE 98+ plays better in stock form, and since you have a tournament today, I think it's the obvious choice.

Best,

My son has two Ezone 98+ frames one strung with big ace micro @ 52 lbs the other with volkl cyclone tour red 18 g @ 54 lbs and there is no harshness even on hits at the very top of the frame. It's light but very comfortable and stable with the swingweight (332-334). The stiffness is mid range but yonex has done something perfectly and it feels lower than 64-65 with a great mix of power and control. Sorry, no personal experience with the dr98+
