Comments: Having the V-Core 100s, RQIS2 Tour and S-Fit 3 in my stable, I finally added the E-Zone 100. Probably as evenly balanced as the S-Fit with more dampened control. Extremely easy to get through the hitting zone. What really put me over the top was to add a hybrid 17L string job of VS gut on the mains at 55 lbs and ALU power at 53 on the crosses. Super enhances the spin and control of the frame. Great directional control.
Comments: I switched to this after playing with the heavier Yonex RDX500 MP and
RDiS100 MP for the past couple of years. Getting older and coming back from ACL surgery has taken its tole so was looking for a racquet that could do more of the work for me. I really liked this racquet on slice serves and topspin shots. Power was effortless on groundstrokes and volleys had nice touch. Flat serves really moved through the court and my backhand has never been better. Originally, I was concerned that the stiffness would take some getting used to but really liked the crispness.
Comments: I have been using RQS 11 and RQiS10 for a few years now and they were great racquets. But it was nowhere to compare to the EZone100 when it comes to control. It took me a little while to adjust with the heavier weight but once I got used to it, I appreciate what this racquet has to offer. It offers better control. And more "real" feeling on contact. Even its headlight balance and shorter than RQiS10, it offers a lot of power, probably due to the weight itself! It is great on serve; good at both top spin and flat groundstroke from bothside. When it comes to control, it is better all around compared to RQiS 10. Drop shot and volley are easy to execute even with the heavier weight. Serve, volley and slice are more stable. And definitely better and more accurate in smashing ball away both at net and baseline. I love this racquet a lot. It does look and feel like a RQS11HG with a thicker and more stable frame. I am getting one more of this so I can finally put my RQS 11 and RQiS 10 to rest in the cabinet as collection items :D!
Comments: I tried E-Zone in its original form (300gr), it was OK. I agree with most people with its performance but it seemed it lacked something, so I modified it! Now the racquet is 335gr. (11.82oz), balance point 31.8cm (12.52inch , 8 points headlight). Now it plays much better, it is more stable, spin is much heavier, slice is excellent and the flats work much better with this modification. A worthy try if you can handle the weight. Even without modifications, give it a try. I have played most of the YONEX racquets, but this one is different. It reminds me of the Super RD Tour(with mods)!
Comments: I demoed this for two weeks and really liked it a lot. The racquet is light and quick. I get effortless power from fast swings and plenty of spin to keep the ball in. Off-centered shots were the most forgiving of any racquet I've tried and the racquet never wobbled. Having a 2HBH, I felt very comfortable slicing with one hand on the run (normally one of my many weaknesses). The paintjob is great and pretty flashy for a predominantly black racquet.
One main reason that I didn't switch to this is the power level. It's great when you're tired and your swing slows down toward the end of three sets. But I feel like I over hit when I slow down my swing and don't impart enough spin on the ball when I'm fresh in the first set. The
thicker frame also creeps up on me sometimes for my less than perfect slicing technique (but the big 100 headsize helps to offset that).
Comments: This racquet feels like Babolat Pure Drive, but without vibrations. If you plan to use stiff poly string you have to give it a try.
Comments: I liked the E Zone 100 pretty much from the first stroke. It is fairly forgiving for off-center shots. The light head made the racquet feel lighter than it really is, but I felt no loss of power or control for either groundstrokes or serve. I was able to swing through with more racquet speed and handle those higher paced shots. I'm an old guy and so far Yonex seems to be the only brand that provides at least one model that mimics the good old flex and feel of the old wood racquet. I would recommend this racquest for anyone seeking a racquet that give a feel to hitting and not just a point and click shot.
Comments: This is a great racquet. Off-center hits are stable thanks to the Quad Power System that extends the sweet spot.
Comments: I am a big fan of this racquet. It offers a great blend of power and control. It kind of reminds me of the Babolat Pure Drive. This racquet is at it's best with a hybrid or full poly set-up. I tried a set-up with a multi, hybrid and full poly, and ended up going with a full poly for optimum spin and control. This is a very forgiving racquet as well, with a HUGE sweet spot. Serving with this racquet is very easy and volleys are easy to put away. My groundstrokes have more power than ever, while maintaining control.
Comments: I played with the RDX 300/103 sq/in and next the RDiS 300. I have "dialed in" the E- Zone tension at 55 lbs with NXT 17 ga. (originally strung one racket at 58 lbs - too much stiffness.
Comments: EZONE is an excellent racket, I just demoed it with Yonex Super 850 Pro (good string as well) at 60/58.
Comments: I found on a different website that flex of this racquet is only 60 and on this page is written 68. Why we have so big different? I am thinking about buying it, but I would prefer flax till 63 (YONEX RDiS 300), because of some arm issues. So which is real flex rate? Thanks.
Comments: I got two demo racquets. The e-zone 100 and the rdis 300. The E-zone 100 for me had too much pop and felt a little boxy to me. I didn't feel like I had the control that I did when I hit with the Rdis 300. Sorry for lack of technical terms, seems like others have really liked it, I guess it just wasn't for me! If you're looking for power, should be a good fit.
Comments: I tried this racquet today, and it amazed me from the start!! It's very light, but with very fast headspeed, so sometimes I didn't get so good control, but my backhand and serve was just so good! I could get late on some hits, and still get good returns! I have to adjust my forehand a little bit, because it felt like I used too much power on that side. The volleys are also very good, and very good on high topspin balls too. Only thing is the power on my forehand, and the feel when I'm trying to hit straight ahead (on the lines or something) then you have to push your body really far and your legs far ahead to get a good enough shot to get a winner. But the crosses are brilliant! I REALLY RECOMMEND this racquet to everyone! SIMPLY ONE OF THE BEST RACQUETS I HAVE PLAYED WITH!
Comments: My demo racquet weighed just under 10.5oz and not 11oz as posted in the specs. It has a soft buttery feel and is very arm friendly. It packs good power and spin for groundstrokes but not enough velocity on serves. Hopefully increasing the weight with lead tape will solve this.
Comments: I played with the RQS11 for several years and decided I needed a standard length frame that was little heavier to help with tennis elbow problems that developed this summer. This is the first 27" standard length frame I have used for many years and I am very impressed with its maneuverability, solid feel and power. At first I was concerned about the width of the frame but that is a non-issue. Even though it is a little stiffer than other frames I have used in the last 15 years, it is very comfortable and not a problem at all with my elbow. I am still experimenting with strings and tension (currently using Luxilon Big Banger Ace 18 in the mains and Babolat Addiction 17 in the crosses). An excellent frame that is another fine product developed by Yonex.
Comments: I really do not care for racquets that have wide beams but this frame is very different. You usually associate a wide beam racquet with lots of power and zero control but this Yonex has the perfect combination of both. The forgiveness is also very good. I have an all court game with lots of spin, touch, and power and this racquet does it all. Also, this racquet gives you a very soft response, not harsh whatsoever. Best racquet I have tried in years.
Comments: I demoed this racquet just last week and was shockingly surprised at a frame of 11 oz, it played extremely light. TW says 10.5 oz swingweight and it played like it, if not even lighter. Being 6 points HL really took the mass out of the head. I couldn't get much plow through on shots and harder hit shots really moved the frame around. It felt more like a serve and volley type of frame versus a baseline hitting frame. You should definitely get into that mindset if you decide to demo it. Stiffness wasn't bad at all, not extreme feedback on the string bed.
Comments: I just got my demo of this racquet today and I loved it. The
amount of power it offers compared to other Yonex rackets is impressive,
it helps generate spin, but the best part is it's forgiving if you don't
hit the ball right in the center. I love this racket and will buy it
when I send back my demo.
