The update to the EZONE DR 100 G, the EZONE 100 G includes a few new technologies that enhance feel and comfort, but also retains the racquets great blend of power and control.
Like its predecessor, the EZONE 100 G should appeal to a very wide range of different types of players. From intermediate to advance players that are looking for a racquet with lots of pop and spin potential and is still arm-friendly.
One of the technological updates to this the EZONE 100 G is an update to their Isometric head shape to create an even more generous sweetspot. Yonex has also updated the grommet system introducing a new technology called Micro Offset Layout, which is designed to allow the grommets to absorb more shock and vibration at impact. This results in a slightly more comfortable and plush feel. Another new addition to this update is the inclusion of Hyper Modulus Graphite (Hyper-MG) in the racquets upper hoop. According to Yonex, Hyper-MG helps to limit frame bending at impact and results in more energy transfer into the ball. It also results in a slightly firmer feel than its predecessor which translates into a touch more pop.
A maneuverable, spin and arm friendly racquet the EZONE 100 is sure to garner some new fans as well as those fans of the previous versions.

ISO (Isometric Square Head Shape): This exclusive Yonex innovation results in a sweet spot up to 48% larger than a traditional oval head shape. According to Yonex, it ensures more power and control with fewer off-center shots.
Quake Shut Gel Air: With this technology Yonex adds 3 layers to its Quake Shut Gel handle technology. The result, according to Yonex, is an increase in vibration dampening by 16%.
Micro Offset Layout: Yonex reshapes the grommet holes and redesigns the grommet structure to reduce string on racquet friction. This enables the strings to move more at impact, which enables them to soak up greater impact vibrations (think comfort)
Hyper MG: Yonex uses an ultra firm hyper modulus graphite to reinforce the upper hoop. The result is less frame bending at impacet, which puts more of the stroke's power into the outgoing shot rather than having it be absorbed by the racquet's deformation.
