Comments: This is an excellent racquet that provides the spin of the Babolat AeroPro Drive without the harshness. It suits my counterpunching game just fine. I'm a 4.0 player with a semi western forehand and a two handed backhand.

Comments: I needed to add half an ounce at 6 o'clock to get more stability and plow through. With that weight set up, strung with Tecnifibre Black Code 17 in the mains at 50 lbs and Gosen AK Control 16 at 56 lbs in the crosses, I find it to offer power, spin, comfort and forgiveness. Control also improves because I don't mistime my swing as much. Topspin production is very good and the slices are much better than I expected for such a light racquet. Finesse shots (drop shots and lobs) are also good because of the higher swingweight that enabled me to execute the strokes better. Volleys improved a lot with the extra weight I put. I found it a bit unstable in stock form. Serves also improved with the customizations. There was more power without compromising spin and placement. In stock form, I got good spin and placement but only average power. Overall, I find this to be a very good racquet and it should appeal to juniors and smaller-framed players like me.

Comments: Yonex EZONE Xi Lite is the ultimate racquet for intermediate to advanced players. It's a very smart choice for women who play regularly. My first serves are strong and baseline strokes more solid overall. I didn't demo the racquet but I did check out the stick at a shop to test the handle comfort and racquet balance. I'm really pleased with my purchase and results. It's an upgrade from my Head Titanium which I've used for 3 years. I'm sure my new racquet will last just as long if not longer!

Comments: I have fallen in love with this racquet. I am a college tennis player and have played with the same discontinued Babolat AeroPro for years. My sister in high school ordered some demo racquets, so I thought I'd give them a go for myself last night. Never in my life have I felt as comfortable with a racquet as this one. The racquet is an extension of my brain - the maneuverability is unsurpassable. I love hitting with LOTS of spin without sacrificing pace. Serving was more difficult for me, transitioning from my Babolat. Serves have always been my forte, so I believe I only need to time to adjust. Can't wait to order some Yonex demo racquets for myself! (Wanting to try the Yonex EZONE Xi 100, not the Lite for myself) Also, I have had problems with repetitive stress fractures and strains over the years in my wrists and forearms - this racquet was so light and comfortable, I can envision myself playing for hours on end without limitations. Highly recommend getting a demo just to try out this very unique racquet for yourself!

Comments: I absolutely love this racquet! I've demoed/ordered it four times in a row while comparing it to other racquets (to name a few, Babolat AeroPro Drive GT, Wilson BLX Blade 98, Babolat Pure Drive Lite, Wilson Juice 100 and Steam 100, etc) and after every demo week, I came to the conclusion that this was the racquet for me. I'm a dominant baseline player with little finesse for slicing and net plays. However, my boyfriend has said that my baseline shots have never been as heavy or as precise as they have been while using this racquet. My serve has gotten a lot of pop on it and I've even shocked him with how much better I've gotten at the net. I've been playing tennis for 7 years and I've never been able to slice and/or slice well, but this racquet has changed it all! The racquet weight is very comfortable and it's not stiff at all. The frame size gives me more control without sacrificing power (something that I lost completely with the Babolat AeroPro Drive GT--not to mention that I thought my shoulder was going to pop out of place). Its cosmetically an attractive looking racquet. And to be just as honest as the first reviewer, I initially only demoed this racquet for the sake of taking advantage of the maximum amount of racquets to be demoed at a time. I never knew that this would be the racquet I'd end up with and I'm proud to be the only Yonex owner I know!

Comments: This racquet is amazing, my husband bought it for me. To be honest, at the beginning I wanted a Yonex just by the way it looks, but now once I tried it, loved it. This racquet have everything, perfect balance, not so light not so heavy, good sweet spot. It helped me improve my game all around, looks very pretty also. I recommend this racquet to anyone.
