POWERFUL WITH A PLUSH FEEL
Garnering worldwide accolades after launching in January 2020, the EZONE series delivers unmatched power and comfort for beginners to the world’s best athletes. The desirable combination of power and flex with a plush feel is achieved through M40X graphite and an aero-shaped frame design, resulting in 2.5% more ball speed and 7.9% more shock absorption*.
The 6th-generation EZONE features the largest sweet spot in the series’ history. By widening the racquet at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions and varying the angles of the aero-shaped frame, there is a plush, more comfortable feel at impact, even on off-centered shots.
FOR INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED PLAYERS LOOKING TO DOMINATE WITH CONTROLLABLE POWER AND COMFORT.
The EZONE 98 is the 2020 Editor’s Choice for having the “Most Universal Appeal.” Play testers reviewed 23 racquets across eight brands for Tennis Magazine, the longest-standing and most-influential publication in tennis.
“Ground strokes were so routine, it almost felt like cheating,” said one of the testers.

Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRIC™ design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC™ racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRIC™ technology delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
- Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM)
For added touch and precision
A stretchy mesh material is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations.
- Razor Frame
By reducing the upper part of the frame by 13% and the lower part by 15.1%, when compared to conventional thin-frame racquets, air resistance is reduced by 9.3% in the upper portion of the frame and 11.5% in the lower. The Ultra Slim Shaft adds to the aerodynamic properties of the racquet.
- New Aero-Shaped Frame
For a plush, comfortable feel
By varying the outer angle of the aero-shaped frame, the middle and upper hoop are plush, while the lower hoop is stable.
- Shockless Grommets
Shockless Grommets are integrated at the side and bottom of the frame to minimize muscle fatigue and provide a soft feel at impact to protect the wrist, forearm, and elbow by absorbing shock.
- Oval Pressed Shaft (OPS)
Increased spin and control
Shaft corners are rounded for an ideal flex at impact to increase dwell time for optimal spin and directional control.
- Liner Tech
For improved power and comfort
Straight hole grommets elongate the strings to optimize power and comfort on off-center shots.
- Super Cushion Grip
The cushioning performance of the grip helps minimize vibrations to protect the wrist, forearm, and elbow against shock-induced injuries.
- VDM Vibration Dampening Mesh
VDM, is a stretchy mesh material rolled with the carbon to reduce unwanted vibrations.
Power with a more flexible frame
A strong, elastic graphite is added in the throat to improve frame stability and flex.

- Isometric Expansion
Enhanced Sweet Spot
An updated square-head frame that is wider at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions creates the largest sweet spot in EZONE history.
