Who is Yonex EZONE 100 racquet for?
Yonex Ezone 100 is a great choice for players who are looking for a good amount of easy power with good maneuverability without having an ultra-light racquet in mind.

Yonex EZONE 100 Specs
Liner Tech Technology
The vertical string eyelets on the outside of the frame have a special angle that lengthens the strings.
This is to increase the size of the sweetspot (comfort zone for hitting) and to make it easier to pick up the spin.
In addition, with this technology, the strings in the center are tighter than those on the outside of the frame to provide control and at the same time comfort and forgiveness on off-center hits.
M40X is a graphite-based material used in the racquet’s core to improve the racquet frame’s power, stability, comfort, and feel.
Mesh for vibration damping.
Material has been added to the handle to filter vibrations and provide comfort.

The power of the Yonex EZone 100
Powerful players who need control may get too much power with the Yonex Ezone 100.
However, it is important to differentiate between the Yonex Ezone with a head size greater than or equal to 645 sq cm, which is powerful, and the Yonex Ezone with a head size less than 645 sq cm, which are control-oriented (for example the Yonex Ezone 98 305g).
Here is a ranking to help you place this racquet in terms of power compared to other racquets, from the most powerful to the least powerful:
The spin potential of the Yonex EZone 100
I got a good feel for the chopped backhand; despite the relatively high power of the racquet, I had good control.
As far as topspin is concerned, the feel was good as well; with a 645 sq cm head size and 16×19 string pattern, access to topspin is very good.
I didn’t feel any difference in terms of access to the net compared to the older version of the Yonex Ezone 100, so for me, the feel is very similar in this area.
It should be noted that the access to the lift is quite decent but not extreme.
If you’re looking for a racquet that is very much geared towards lift play, the following models may be more suitable:
Head Extreme MP
Head MXG 3
Prince Textreme Premier 105
Wilson Burn 100 S
Comfort and forgiveness
Yonex racquets feature Isometric technology, which is a slightly rectangular head shape specific to Yonex, designed to increase the tolerance of the racquet.
Generally speaking, Yonex racquets offer good forgiveness, and this is also the case with this version of the EZone 100, which is quite forgiving on slightly off-center hits.
I found the racquet to be very comfortable, with good vibration dampening but not a very muted feel.
The balance at 32cm and swing weight of 322 give the Yonex Ezone 100 quite a bit of maneuverability.
There’s a little bit of head weight but it’s very light, enough to contribute to power without reducing maneuverability too much and losing some swing speed.
There will be less maneuverability than with similar racquets with smaller head sizes, like the Yonex Ezone 98 305g.
With this new version of the Yonex Ezone 100, we find sensations very close to those offered by the old model.
The power is still there, interesting for players who do not have an extremely powerful game.
The access to the lift is perfectly correct without being excessive.
Handling is also very satisfying, as well as comfort and forgiveness on off-center hits.
