About the Brand

Yonex is a Japanese sporting goods manufacturer famous for exceptional manufacturing quality. Established in 1946, they manufactured their first badminton racquet in 1957 and their first tennis racquet in 1968. In the years since their founding, Yonex has developed a reputation for unparalleled innovation and quality. Their reputation has been further enhanced by a sponsorship program that features some of the top players and teams in the world. They are also highly visible as sponsors for some of the world’s top tennis and badminton tournaments.

While most manufacturers focus on sponsoring celebrity athletes and developing high intensity marketing campaigns to convince consumers to purchase new products, Yonex has tended to focus more on innovation and improvement through research and development. In fact their patented isometric racquet shape, first released in 1980, is still considered to be one of the most important and lasting innovations in tennis and badminton. This innovative racquet shape still figures heavily in virtually all Yonex racquet designs.



About the Series

Banner: Ezone Tennis Racquet Series

The Ezone series of tennis racquets is all about generating comfortable power. Aimed primarily at recreational tennis players who are not professional athletes, the Ezone series has an enhanced sweet spot for additional power and enhanced anti-vibration features for additional comfort.

This current version of the EZONE series 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.

Also focusing on comfort, the EZONE has M40X* — a high strength, high elastic graphite in the throat — to improve frame stability and flex. It also features Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) in the handle to filter out unwanted vibrations.



Planned Obsolescence

“Planned obsolescence, or built-in obsolescence, in industrial design and economics is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so that it becomes obsolete (i.e., unfashionable, or no longer functional) after a certain period of time. The rationale behind this strategy is to generate long-term sales volume by reducing the time between repeat purchases (referred to as “shortening the replacement cycle”).” [Wikipedia]

Virtually all racquet brands these days have a plan to make new racquets obsolete long before they even come out. Since planned obsolescence is built into racquets, we believe that customers have a right to know when the racquet that they are buying is expected to become obsolete.

Some brands plan to make their new racquets obsolete less than two years after they are released. Racquet Network considers this irresponsible. While we cannot force the racquet sports industry to do away with planned obsolescence, we can refuse to offer brands with the shortest cycles. For example, Racquet Network does not sell some very major brands precisely because they make new racquets obsolete in two years or less.

Yonex is currently on a 30-month cycle. A new racquet launches. About six months later a second colour comes out. Six months after that a third colour may come out. Then after 30 months, the current generation is replaced by a new generation and the old racquets are considered (by Yonex) to be obsolete.

In this case, the sixth generation of Ezone series tennis racquets was released during the 2020 Australian Open. If Yonex follows their usual marketing cycle, a seventh generation of this series will be released in mid-2022. Between these dates customers can expect one to three new colorways to be released. It is important to understand that these are not new racquets; they are simply new colors intended to provoke customers into buying something new.


Manufacturer’s Description

Ezone Game is for beginners to intermediate players looking for power and comfort.


Our Description

The Ezone Game is a pre-strung, super light weight singles racquet. The weight of this racquet makes it suitable for most ladies and/or juniors. It may also be suitable for some recreational level men. Compared to standard racquets, the Isometric shape of Yonex racquets offers a sweet spot that is at least 7% larger. This shape benefits recreational players who do not play regularly and therefore may not have perfect timing.


Who Would use this Racquet?

This racquet is in our singles tennis category. So we presume it would be used primarily for singles and infrequently (if at all) for doubles tennis. Singles players have to hit the ball long distances more often than doubles players. Therefore singles racquets tend of have smaller heads and heavier frames than all purpose racquets or doubles racquets.

Technology in this Racquet


New Isometric

Yonex New Isometric Tennis Racquet Technology

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 intersecting main and cross strings.

Yonex has improved the ISOMETRIC technology further by expanding the four corners of the new EZONE for longer main and cross strings in the upper frame, resulting in the largest sweet spot in the EZONE series history.



Yonex Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM)

Aero Shape
