With the 2022 EZONE 98L Yonex gives intermediate players the tools to hit with power, spin and accuracy. For this update, Yonex adds 2G NAMD Speed to the graphite layup, resulting in increased pocketing and better ball feedback. Yonex has also retooled the beam construction, adding a thicker, more convex cross section in the shaft (for stability) along with a thinner frame face (for a softer response). Other technologies include Yonex’s time-tested ISOMETRIC head shape, a unique design feature that makes Yonex racquets feel more generous and forgiving than conventionally shaped equivalents. Rising intermediate players looking for total command over the ball should start here.
