Features and technologies

The EZone range offers the most powerful rackets and the VCore Pro range the least powerful rackets.
The Vcore 95 has a lot of technologies such as :
– Isometric: Isometric frame shape to optimize the sweet spot and therefore the forgiveness and power of the racquet.
– 2G-Namd Flex Force: Technology that modifies the structure of the graphite in the racquet for greater flexibility and quicker return for better spin.
– String Sync Grommets: Yonex’s proprietary grommet structure provides more vertical string movement and faster return for improved ball striking.
– Aero Trench: A reduction in the size of the grommet at the top of the racquet to improve air penetration and spin
– Aero Fin: Aerodynamic fins located on the edges of the frame to improve air penetration and maneuverability
– Liner Tech: Increased string entry angle on some strings for a bigger sweet spot and string movement.
– Vibration Dampening Mesh: This material is placed in the neck and filters out 30% of the vibrations caused by hitting to protect your arm, but also to offer you more touch and comfort.
