Comments: Received the YONEX Ai 100. Overall impression: Very high quality construction and finish. Excellent
plow through rivaling my Babolat PD Roddick plus. Unlike the Babolat though, there are few, if any trade-offs. Comfort is quite
high, stability is excellent, great feel. Plenty of spin potential. The only downside was easily remedied: The stock grip is very thin
with no cushioning. I had that replaced for $5.99 and the racquet is great in all aspects. I strung it with Volkl 17 Gauge Psycho
hybrid, 54 lbs in the mains, 52 lbs in the crosses crosses.
Comments: Great racquet in the same class as the Warrior 100, Wilson Pro Open, Prince Warrior 100 or APD. Softer
feeling than it's 68 rating. Nice solid 330 swingweight. Plays nice out of the box. I swapped out the thin Yonex grip for a Wilson
Sublime and it added 5 grams. Lots of power but it's easily controllable with the right poly and tension Cyclone at 55 lbs is a
great starting point. Really does everything well -- groundies, serve, slice and touch and feel is great for a high stiffness racquet.
Headshape on the Ais is less square than in year's past and that's a welcome change IMO. If you like powerful 11-11.5 oz. semi-
players frames, you should give this one a try. It really has no downsides.
Comments: I have been deciding on which racquet that would suit my game between the Yonex AI 100 or Head
Prestige Graphene MP. The Head racquet is a very good solid control racquet but you have to generate your own power (Players
racquet). It hits very nice, good for the arm and shoulder, but it is a heavy racquet. So your reaction time will be a bit slow. The
Yonex AI 100 is a very powerful, light racquet, good for the arm and shoulder. It excels in all areas except slicing -- it is very
terrible when trying to execute a slice. However, since I play a lot of doubles, the Yonex fits my game style. Very good racquet for
Comments: I've used Yonex for years. I am a bit of a racquet tester and have hit many of the new sticks that are
out. I think this one has something for everyone comfort, power, spin, and swingweight. Much better than the AeroPro Drive.
Comments: Big fan. I have been demoing several racquets since November. I tried the new Princes and liked them
(100 Tour, orange and yellow/98) and decided to step out of Prince and try Yonex for a while. Just really impressed with the
feel/weight of this racquet. Fits me well.
Comments: I picked this up because I'm still looking for that 11.2 oz/5 pts headlight stick that I can say is perfect.
I take a big cut at the ball, big topspin. And I like Yonex sticks, but they haven't had many in this weight category that could be
considered a players racquet. Mine weighs 11.4 oz, added only an overgrip, and is 5 pts headlight. But the balance of this one
makes you feel it is lots lighter, and very fast. Which is good. Quickness is really apparent on returns where this is really good.
Serves also, while not the most spin I've had, it certainly feels controllable. Groundstrokes are very controllable but I'm still
looking for that string that will pull it back about a foot or so. Tourna Big Hitter Blue 17 at 53 lbs is just a little too big hittery.
Am going to try Weiss Cannon Black Edge at the same tension and hopefully that edge will grab a bit more and pull the ball down.
All in all very happy, my go to stick and I have lots of sticks.
Comments: I've been hitting with Yonex raquects now for over a decade and this Ai version of the EZONE is
just recently switched to this version from the EZONE Xi 100 and couldn't be happier. I did add quite a bit of lead tape around the
frame to add more weight. The thinner beam in the throat allowed me to swing faster and therefor added more spin to my ground
strokes. I was more accurate with angle shots as well. Strung with Yonex Poly Tour strings. This stick gives me the confidence to
all out with my shots!
Comments: I put 5 grams of lead tape in the head and tried it, it's a real weapon! I tested all the 100s square inch
racquets on the market, but this stick beats them all. It's very easy to use, extremly powerful but also very controllable due to the
enormous spin. This stick reminds me of a blend of a Pure Drive (power) and an AeroPro Drive (spin), but with much more touch.
Also, it is very comfortable on your arm -- I can't find any mistakes! I strung it with Solinco Tour bite at 24/23 kilos.
