The Yonex E-Zone Xi 98, offers the new Yonex Xi technology (Extra Isometric) which expands the sweetspot towards the top of the frame and, according to Yonex, provides a bigger sweetspot and more power with less impact vibration. Also new is the Yonex SD IS Grid shaft. A shock absorbing Grid mesh sheet is inserted into the shaft to absorb the impact vibration between the 2 tubes inside the grip. Yonex also improved the OPS System in the shaft, providing a stable, yet flexible, soft feel. The E-Zone Xi 98 offers excellent power and a flexible, forgiving feel and impresses from all areas of the court. From the baseline the racquet feels very maneuverable allowing easy access to fast swings for power and spin generation. At net the racquet provides the player with all the feedback needed for confident and crisp volleys. There is ample feel for all the touch and finesse needed on drop volleys and angles. On serve the Yonex E-Zone Xi 98 provides some nice power thanks to its firm and responsive flex. The 16x19 string pattern really helped in adding plenty of bite to slice and kick serves. All in all the E-Zone Xi 98 is a great offering in the player's racquet category and well worth a demo for intermediate level players and above.
