The Osaka Ezone was designed in collaboration with Naomi Osaka and her sister Mari Osaka. The Osaka Ezone is an added cosmetic to the 7th-generation Ezone series, which is crafted for power and comfort.
The Ezone 100L 7th generation, is crafted with 2G-Namd Speed graphite, which is integrated in the throat of the racket for increased ball speed and improved feel. The Yonex EZone 100L offers a forgiving 100 sq. inch head size, but a lighter frame (285g) than its big brother at (300g) to increase manoeuvrability.
Building upon the EZone family’s easy access to power and comfort, a further improvement has been made with an upgraded Aero Shape Frame Design and Liner Tech, resulting in 16% more flexibility. To ensure racket stability is not sacrificed, a thicker beam width and new shaft design adds power and reduces unwanted racket twisting on off-centred shots.
Yonex are by far the most consistent frames on the market and with good reason! Their quality control and weight tolerance is far tighter than other brands. If you have 2 or more Yonex frames, they will be pretty much identical. If there is a difference, there will be minor differences which are hardly noticeable but can easily be made the same. If you have ever suffered from tennis elbow, then Yonex should be your first choice as they offer a bigger sweet spot and have less vibration that runs through to your arm and been manufactured in Japan, you will not find better made frames.
Please note, that unless a string is selected, this racket will be sent frame only. No head cover is supplied with this racket.
Liner Tech: Straight hole grommets elongate the strings to optimise power and comfort on off-centre shots.
OPS: Shaft corners are rounded for an ideal flex at impact to increase dwell time for optimal spin and directional control.
Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM): VDM is a stretchy mesh material that adheres well to graphite to reduce arm fatigue. Integrated within the grip, VDM minimises vibrations by 30% resulting in improved feel and precise ball control.
2G-Namd Speed: High modulus graphite fibres are bound with a carbon nanotube structure, reducing energy loss, which enables to transfer the energy into quick snapback.
Aero Shape: An inverted frame design with a thinner frame face results in a softer racket.
Shaft Design: A thicker shaft structure with a convex design reduces unwanted racket torque on off-centred shots for added power.
