    Is there any ETA when this new extended model of the ezone dr 98 will be available for demo in Europe?

    Thanks

    It is unfortunate. There's a shortage of flexible extended rackets. I went to the WIlson blade 104 eventually.

    Is it because Yonex know the Americans aren't naturally as powerful as us Europeans and as such need the extra assistance from their rackets?

    Hello everyone,

    we won't get the racket and we can't buy it from the US.
    But when the new collection arrives, we will have this racket.

    Best Regards,
    TWE/ Staff

    Hello,

    we expect the new collection to be here in January 2018.
    And we do not have any information about this racket yet!
    Thanks,

    I contacted Yonex UK and they advised me they had a few which they supplied to tennisnuts. I manage to get one from them. Only grip size 3 and limited only so not sure how many left if any still.

    Got one from the for sales board here

    It is really really plush
    RPM @55

    Not easy switching back and forth from RF97A but then most things would feel very different

    I have a singles semifinals tonight and might give it a go if I am struggling

    It swings easily on the serve and encourages you to swing harder and harder
    Pretty brutal on forehand when hitting reverse cross court
    Definite feeling of cupping the ball

    Everything feels so right about this frame but I am finding it hard to get comfortable with it

    I have used PD+ and they were easier to use in that the firm feel on contact gave immediate feedback. I am still feeling my way with the 98+

    Anyway I think it will be worth it in the end
    The RF98 is heavy going after 3 hours

    Consider using a firmer base grip such as leather, it would add some feedback.

    Any update if this racquet will be available in Europe and when? Will all grip sizes be available too?
