You know that scene in Harry Potter where Harry gets his wand? The camera pushes in on him, wind blows through his hair, and the music swells.
That’s what playing with the Yonex EZONE 98 feels like.
For me, it was a perfect fit, as though this is the racket I was always meant to play with. If you enjoy playing with spin, control, and coming to the net, it might be the perfect racket for you, too.
Yonex EZONE 98 2023 Overview
The EZONE 98 is forgiving and accurate. It’s all thanks to the isometric head design, according to Yonex. With longer head and cross strings, the racket can produce a more responsive feel without sacrificing the ease of use.
Versatility is what makes the Yonex EZONE 98 special. It’s also probably why most people who read this probably know at least one person who won’t shut up about how awesome Yonex is.
I won’t subject you to more gushing about Yonex. Suffice to say, this racket is worth a demo at the very least. You owe it to your tennis game to try it out.
According to the company’s website, the EZONE 98 is for, “intermediate to advanced players.”
That’s probably true, but it depends on your learning style and how comfortable you feel on the court. If you had to pick a 98 square inch racket to start with, this is probably the one you would want to choose.
The isometric head really does produce a better, bigger sweet spot. It’s not just a marketing gimmick.
If you’re already comfortable with this racket size, it might provide the perfect balance of control and accuracy you’ve been searching for.
Thinking a different head size might work better for you? Refer to our list of all the different rackets in the Yonex EZONE family to find a perfect fit.
Yes, if you’re looking for control and power that doesn’t put strain on your elbow, the Yonnex EZONE is a great racket. With lots of models and head sizes to choose from, you can find a model that suite your style and level of play.

Is The Yonnex Ezone Worthwhile?
Everything else about it is pretty average. It’s around average weight, weighing in at 305 grams, unstrung. Strings bring that up to 320 grams.
The body is made from graphite, which is nothing new as far as racket constructions is concerned. Where this racket shines is in Yonex’s design. From the isometric head to the hexagonal beams, all the EZONE 98’s design features come together to produce a racket that cuts through the air at what seems like just the right speed, regardless of your playstyle.
