Description

The Percept 97D is a flexible and relatively compact frame suitable for advanced players looking for a heavier racquet to provide great precision, feel and force for an aggressive and dynamic game.

The headsize of this racquet is slightly smaller than an average racquet, providing a tighter sweet spot for increased precision and control for those that can consistently hit it. The weight is on the heavier side of average so its got plenty of stability and punch for powerful shots and strong volleys. The balance of this racquet is head light which will provide great maneuverability for quick net play and faster swinging for increased spin potential. The dense string pattern influences less power from the string bed allowing bigger swings for an even greater ability to control the ball on any stroke.

Yonex's frame technologies continue to evolve and enhance their racquets for impoved performance and feel. For the Percept series, Yonex continues to infuse their racquets with the ISOMETRIC head shape for a larger than expected sweet spot to enhance overall playability. Vibration is reduced with Yonex's Servo Filter for a more comfortable experience by reducing unwanted shock and vibration. Flexiblity and ball pocketing is enhanced with an elongated shaft design to allow a greater degree of control over the ball. Yonex has stiffened the racquet face to enhance the stability and overall power of this frame.

With the key technological features and raw specs, the Percept 97D is designed for advanced players looking for a racquet with pinpoint precision, feel, and flex.

  • Head Size: 97 sq. inches / 626 sq. cm
  • Length: 27 inches / 68.58 cm
  • Weight: 11.3 oz / 320 g unstrung
  • Balance: 10 pts head light / 310 mm unstrung
  • Swing Weight: 328 strung
  • Beam width: 21mm / 21mm / 21mm
  • Flex: 62 RA
  • Tension Range: 45-60 lbs / 20-27kg
  • String Pattern: 18/20
  • Year Introduced: 2023
  • Style #: 01PE97D
  • Colour: Olive Green
  • ISOMETRIC: 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 the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRIC technology delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
  • SERVO FILTER: A transparent film placed between graphite enhances flexibility when pressure is applied and filters out unnecessary vibration. 60%* more flexible and 500%* faster vibration dampening than graphite.
  • FLEXCON SYSTEM+2G-NAMD FLEX FORCE: A tapered and elongated box frame shaft is composed with 2G-Namd Flex Force and SERVO FILTER. This system helps the racquet to flex and extend the ball pocketing duration at the impact. 15%* more flexibility on the racquet shaft.
  • STIFF RACQUET FACE DESIGN: Increase the graphite content of the racquet face. This improves ball control by stabilizing the racquet face at impact. 3%* more stability on the racquet face.
  • Lock Booster for Ball-Crushing Spin: An improved grommet design that promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer and ball crushing power.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.

Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.

Grip Size Length
L0 (4") 4" (4 inches)
L1 (4 1/8") 4 and 1/8" (4.125 inches)
L2 (4 1/4") 4 and 2/8" (4.25 inches)

L4 (4 1/2") 4 and 4/8" (4.5 inches)
L5 (4 5/8") 4 and 5/8" (4.625 inches)

To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
