Racket Review: Yonex E Zone DR 100

Yonex E Zone DR 100

This racket stands out from the rest – it looks as good as it feels

In the second part of our 2017 racket reviews our testers put rackets aimed at club players through their paces.

With ambassadors such as Stan Wawrinka, Nick Kyrgios and Angelique Kerber, Yonex is well represented brand of the ATP and WTA tours. In terms of intermediate levels the Yonex EZone DE100 is the racket of choice as it was designed for the all-round player who requires both comfort and maximum ball speed.

In the appearance category Jem described the racket as ‘standing out from the get go’ due to its vibrant colour combination. When it came to hitting with it he and Howard felt it was an effective, powerful and solid racket when they hit the sweet spot.

The new isometric technology was designed to increase the size of the sweet spot but the caveat was if they hit off-centre the ball often landed short. They were, however, impressed with the feel on their serves and volleys which was aided by the 16x19 string pattern.

Tennishead's 2017 intermediate racket reviews were published in the May edition of the tennishead digital magazine.  Download the tennishead magazine app for free to read the reviews in full.
