The New EZONE+ For Power and Reach

20 April 2018

Yonex is thrilled to unveil the newest addition to the EZONE series. The EZONE+, which is the update to the EZONE DR+ and Tennis Magazine’s 2017 Editor’s Choice for the “Best Baseliner Frame,” is launching today, April 20th.

The EZONE+ features a frame that is a half-inch longer than standard EZONE to give players added power and stability without sacrificing feel. This long body racquet includes the same ISOMETRIC technology to increase the sweet spot by 7%, as well as HYPER-MG graphite for explosive power and MICRO OFFSET LAYOUT for unmatched comfort.

The racquet of choice for WTA player Nicole Melichar:

I love the racquet. The extra half inch definitely makes a difference with my reach, and I am able to get extra power, especially on the serve. It’s also more fluid on groundstrokes, and it’s easier to create spin as well. 

ISOMETRIC: Enhanced sweet spot

Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRIC design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing intersecting main and cross strings.

Yonex has improved the ISOMETRIC technology further by expanding the four corners of the new EZONE for longer main and cross strings in the upper frame, resulting in the largest sweet spot in the EZONE series history.

HYPER-MG: Explosive Power

Embedded within the inner portion of the upper frame, HYPER-MG (Hyper Modulus Graphite) material dramatically enhances frame snapback speed, increasing repulsion power and ball speed. Upper frame flexural strength is increased by 5%.

MICRO OFFSET LAYOUT: Unmatched Comfort

Precise engineering of grommets holes provides straighter alignment of main and cross strings for more power. Greater string contact within the grommet reduces and absorbs harsh vibrations from impact for unmatched comfort
