Mdr c'est pas censé être la même ? 😆. Mais oui effectivement ça pourrait expliquer les différences.

Oui c'est sensé être la même et rien ne dit qu'il y a une différence...
Mais dans le cas de la clash y'a eu pas mal de ttémoignage sur la déception des gars qui avaient testé la version proto "blanche bariolée" puis la version "verni a ongle de pied"... Alors, pour Yonex, j'en sais rien, mais voilà, ça expliquerait (et ça ferait bien chi.r .....) !
Autre explication tangible : les ricains sont des bourrins qui ont besoin de jouer en 18/20 de 350g min en mono tendus à 27kg... Et donc là... Forcément...

Ouais c'est clair, tous les gars de l'équipe Tennis Warehouse USA jouent avec des modèles Tour/Pro, rallongés etc. Avec des mono assez tendus vers les 24 ou 25kg.

Eux semblent rester sur leurs premiers ressentis du modèle proto par rapport à cette version finale et disent à peu près la même chose que ça leur fait un peu penser aux  modèles DR avec ce "plush feeling" même si l'indice de rigidité a augmenté.

Release des nouvelles Ezone sur TWE !

Vu à l'instant en fouinant ;-) 

Nb : J'ai supprimé le screenshot car je ne sais pas si c'est autorisé de faire ça...

Effectivement j'avais vu que le look était différent mais il y a peut être des différences effectivement entre la version finale et la beta. Du coup on va retenir l'impression d'adoucissement venant des USs avant de pouvoir tester (la version australienne semble aussi être le proto)

Hâte de tester ça en tout cas. Mon pro shop ne les a pas encore reçu mais c'est pour bientôt je pense !

 

La Ezone 100 285g semble être assez similaire niveau specs. Léger affinement du coeur de 0,5mm. Mais niveau équilibre, SW, rigidité c'est la même (rigidité de 68RA). 

Pas checké les autres version. 

Mais on voit que la forme fait un peu moins "carré" et un peu plus arrondie, et ajout du VDM etc. A voir si ça apporte beaucoup de différences.

Même système que la dunlop sx300. Corde plus dense au milieu pour le controle et plus d' espacement  sur les côtés pour reduire les chocs sur frappes décentrés. Peut être en faisant ca, ils ont résolu le problème de rigidité sur la partie haute du cadre.

J'ai déjà ça sur ma Pure Drive Team 2015 le plan de cordage resserré au niveau de la zone de frappe. Par contre ils l'ont enlevé sur la nouvelle (2018). En vrai je trouve ça bien. Ça donne un petit côté contrôle supplémentaire qui n'est pas désagréable sur ce genre de raquettes assez puissantes. Bon après je pourrais pas dire dans quelle mesure c'est efficace, la PDT est également tolérante 😆. Après y a d'autres facteurs qui rentrent en compte notamment la forme du cadre, les sections etc. Pour les œillets de forme modifiée sur les nouvelles raquettes je sais pas vraiment si c'est très efficace. Rien à voir en tout cas entre un petit oeillet allongé et les trous de la technologie O3 de Prince où on sent vraiment la différence en terme de tolérance au delà de plans de cordages ouverts.

Ou alors je vous copie l'truc :

La 100 :

Ezone is the most successful line for Yonex and attention that the company places on these rackets is absolutely top notch. Already in the transition between Ezone DR to Ezone, in 2017, it was felt the desire to Yonex offer a service not only satisfactory, but also rewarding, and today we are in the presence of the new line Ezone 2020 , in which Japanese engineers have wanted to merge the "plush" feeling of Dr series with the high performance of Ezone 2017. Ezone 2020 series, which I've tried from 305 grams to 100 grams from 300 national premiere in 98 versions, here the anticipation, At first glance seems a very similar to the previous frame, without major external changes, but presents many new, inside and out, that still raise more performance and sensation. We will see, in a complete, how it behaves Ezone 100 2020, which, as we say now, will place high up in the overall TennisTaste.

Yonex Ezone 100 2020
 

Headsize 100 inch2
Weight 300 g
String Pattern 16 × 19
Balance 320 mm
Swingweight (strung) 322 kgcmq
Stiffness 68 RA
Profile 22-26-23.5 mm
Length 68.6 cm

The aestheticsof Ezone 100 2020 was a real surprise, because Yonex has accustomed us to lime green as the official color of the colors Ezone line, with a second exit in blue after a while. By 2020, however, the racquet is already realized in electric blue, with a scale of colors, until the blue, on a basis of geometric effects to prominence. The frame is shiny, very, and also original in his new role, which identifies it immediately. The paint is satin, usual well realized with many overlapping steps, so as to also ensure a degree of abrasion resistance. All serigraphs are made of silver, sparkle and stand out much, but overall I am sober and help create a solution of continuity with the blue / blue, while the real element of rupture is an indication, in orange, the presence of the VDM, reported on the left leg, while a fine line of the same color peeps in the inner part of the plate, to emphasize the transition between blue and blue. With theVDM , we open the chapter of the changes, more or less visible, remembering that it is, as already seen on the VCore Pro series, mesh inserted in the graphite mesh, to cushion the impact and reduce vibration. Going forward, to the heart of the frame of a new material has been inserted MX40 , which makes it the most flexible stems, while the chassis frame has been renewed on two fronts: the plate is wider at 3 and 9 o'clock , while it is varied the front beam that becomes thinner and slightly more angular, to search for more aerodynamics and greater connection with the ball, by virtue of a higher bending. To top it all, there is also a new pattern , with a different spacing, housedpassacorde entirely new , made so as to "drown the ropes inside them and hold them. To handle no surprise, however, with the usual form Yonex and green cap, where he proudly displayed the "Made in Japan". Unique item worth mentioning is the grip usually thin, which creates a bit 'of stairs in the windings. There those who like it and those who, like me, prefer a smoother surface.

 

Yonex Ezone 100 2020

In the fieldEzone 100 2020 got a two fundamental characteristics: it is arrogant in the push and is very precise. The chassis, with the evolution, the result of the maturity of a successful project, has gained much power and now there is no uncertainty in push, which places this 100 at the top of shoe boost, not only easy, because the frame has mass and stability to sell and chasing the ball away so easily, but also understood as maximum power, where you can appreciate the ability to do evil even from long range. In addition, Ezone 100 earns a more progressive, more sensitive too. In fact it is not the power to impress more (is always a 100-inch profiled and 300 grams) but it is the combination of control, high and at the top of the category, and the sensitivity, which is usually sore point between the profiled. The frame is much softer than the version 2017 and 69 RA points declared, 68 detected on the DRC Babolat, seem even less and the new shape of the stem gives a feeling not too dissimilar to than does the sister of 98 inches. The competition between the two is tightened, with advantages and disadvantages, because stability, power and control are also accompanied by a handling a bit 'below the industry average, with a frame from the massive feeling in motion, without a bet head, and an output capacity on the spin certainly natural, but not overwhelming. Yonex here has sharply operated to divide more clearly its range, leaving the role to spin machine to VCore 100 and greater propensity to power and control for Ezone 100. However, the Ezone 100 is not at all stops with the rotations, indeed, only that it is more naturally inclined to explode frontally, even donating a heavy ball, but more for the output speed for the ride. In terms of feeling with the ball, then, Ezone 100 is one of the few that comes to the level ofPure Aero , but, as seen, with a very different character. The ball feels really well, controlling well and the frame gives a great confidence in the shots, with a general feeling of mastery of the situation, even more so because the dish is widened a little 'forget the inertia to 322 points and allows very regular in the large sweetspot impact response.

From the baseline, With one arm gracilino does little, it would be good to look at the 280 grams version, but with a minimum of training and technique, Ezone 100 pulls really strong and gradually reacts to stress. Salt regime with great control and knows how to counter the ball with a great impact sweetness, which in addition to protection and comfort, even foments the general feeling of connection with the ball. From the bottom it is at home, offers much margin tolerates off-center, knows how to change pace and, while preferring the little indoor shot, can offer a good dose of natural spin to change style. Despite the great power, it is a frame that also focuses on the control, that provides security and concreteness on closures, provided you do not want to imitate Nadal with its banana-shot, because forcing much spin, do not get as much as desired. Best suited to break through the front, he does understand after a while ', because the relaxed feeling of impact does not immediately understand what pushes, then you hand and takes measurements and makes the most of his talents. The general maneuverability is not bad, but to enter in through the frame should be put in the budget greater how demanding than the average, a bit 'more, for example, with respect to the VCore 100, but like the previous Ezone model 100 2017, compared which, however Ezone 100 2020 has not only rebuilt the trick, but changed his engine!

 

The back is great. It handles with ease and there is an easy matter at medium speed ball out. There is also a good margin on the rhythm and you can push so, the frame holds it low and very row. The side-spin is discreet, it should be worked on and researched, but responds concretely.

 

At net , Ezone 100 there is pretty good. It is Superior maneuverability, requires to move a bit 'before and search space, but it is very real and definitive on flat volleys, while the cut is embroidered with ease. It is also powerful in response on the stresses do not provoke, but maintains control shown in the other areas of the field. The smash is a cannon, also impacting powerful fluency.

Serving the strike plate is remarkable. Scrolls always fast, gives rhythm and intensity margin and is always pretty accurate. A strike plate to the classic frame-level, well above the average. The slice is faster and lower than curved, but it offers a discreet management of the lateral spin and always moves a bit 'after the rebound. With the slice becomes much, it is a very malleable solution and while forcing the frame remains buttery impact. MI would have expected a kick irrelevant and, instead, even though some do not speak of a monster-kick, the ball rotates and rises in a satisfactory manner, especially working with the substance, while with the tear gets less. The kick is working well especially when maneuvering and in defense.

Ultimately , Ezone 100 is renewed for 2020 with a combination of technology and solutions that make it better than its previous versions, to feel and performance. Yonex has decided to give her a very defined character to the power and control, giving up a little 'spin up than the version 2017, but adding a nice soft and cushioned feel. Ezone 100 is among the very first class of 300 grams and among the leaders of the market frames for effectiveness, completeness, character and overall feel. The thinner, more flexible, more powerful and more connected, a great job by Yonex.

Pour la 98 :
Yonex-Ezone-98-2020-racquet-678x381.jpg

Ezone 98 was the first "hybrid" frame of success with its shooting in mid-proportions between a classical and a mounting racket. For 2020 Yonex, as well as for his sister Ezone 100 , it predicted a big renewal, looking for better feeling with the ball and many other solutions that go, once again, a good project and convincing. Let's find out what, many, innovations, and how's the new Yonex Ezone 98 2020.

Yonex Ezone 98 2020
 

Headsize 98 inch2
Weight 305 g
String Pattern 16 × 19
Balance 315 mm
Swingweight (strung) 316 kgcmq
Stiffness 64 RA
Profile 19-24-23 mm
Length 68.6 cm

The aestheticsEzone of 98 for 2020 is already in electric blue, color usually proposed as a second "special" exit after a few months. It is not just blue, it has a scale of colors, to the blue, on a basis of geometric effects to prominence. The frame is shiny, very, and also original in his new role, which identifies it immediately. The paint is satin, usual well realized with many overlapping steps, so as to also ensure a degree of abrasion resistance. All serigraphs are made of silver, stand out much and shine, but all in all are simple and help to create a solution of continuity with the blue / blue, while the true element of rupture is an indication, in orange, the presence of the VDM , reported on the left leg, while a fine line of the same color peeps in the inner part of the plate, to emphasize the transition between blue and blue. With theVDM , we open the chapter of the changes, more or less visible, remembering that it is, as already seen on the VCore Pro series, mesh inserted in the graphite mesh, to cushion the impact and reduce vibration.

To top it all, there is also a new pattern, With a different spacing, more dense in the center and wider towards the edges, housed on grommets entirely new , made so as to "drown the ropes inside them and hold them. To handle no surprise, however, with the usual form Yonex and green cap, where he proudly displayed the "Made in Japan". Unique item worth mentioning is the grip usually thin, which creates a bit 'of stairs in the windings. There those who like it and those who, like me, prefer a smoother surface.

Yonex Ezone 98 2020Yonex Ezone 98 2020

In the fieldEzone 98 offers of the substance changes in the character of the frame, that the report to a more essential performance, easier in general, but with a less nervous impact behavior. In fact, in its 2017 version Yonex had given her a more responsive character with respect to the sly DR 98 and this had broken a tradition of flexible frames, to which the audience was really fond of her. Well, Ezone returns to be softer, more flexible, more connected to the ball and even with a greater level of control compared to 2017. The feeling is very pleasant and, also thanks to the thinner section of the front beam, it is more sensitive. The work on the stem section has given a good result in this regard and, if you add to the fact that the frame also has a more intimate, wider shape to the flat ropes, there is also an easier ball out. What is lost, however? Something less than the 2017 model and there is first of all speak of power. I have personally used for a whole year Ezone 98 2017, with great satisfaction, because of its lively power and very reactive response, which gave a ball output mixes fairly modern and quite charges rotations, although not accentuatissime, whereas today model 2020 relies entirely on the precision and feeling, with a moderate spin and power more to come up with the speed of execution. Not that the frame is stationary, indeed, but the setting is more likely to give the arm to the free space rather than power, because Ezone 98 is even easier to handle and the head less heavy, while it is more full the stem. On the one hand it is a very positive thing, because less tiring and easier on even Ezone 100 2020, which leaves plenty of room for an experienced arm that wants to manage the racket in toto and also opens to a level of less trained users, but on the other hand always imposes a concreteness and substance swing. It's really fast and easy to swingare, very balanced Superior maneuverability in its 305 grams. When the ball is thrown, restores energy, especially in the front line, but who's counting to put arm "half" or stop the executions, will be disappointed and will have to expend more. In a sense, the 318 points betray real competitive placement of a frame that began as a precision instrument with a sweetspot not common between the 98-inch, wide and very smooth.

Yonex Ezone 98 2020Yonex Ezone 98 2020

From the baseline, Ezone 98 20202 is based on two fundamental characteristics: accuracy and ease of ball outlet. Although there is not the power of the 100-inch sister, there is a greater simplicity of accelerating the tool to harness the power of the arm, with a considerable tolerance on decentralized. The response frame is clean, smooth on the whole plate and Ezone 98 is a frame that gives a great confidence when aiming at small targets or you have little space to perform a passerby. When you switch to using extreme rotations, the frame is immediately understand that there is no history, it does not make too much when you stamp spin and lose effectiveness, but the shots covered there is no problem, just have to be marked more brushed and the current "lap" is safe. In terms of thrust, even if the frame is shown more flexible and soft, there is no real loss and the arm rotates quickly and easily, finding a trajectory always quite tense and deep output. In fact, the structure becomes less effective in large part the air, not only the different setting. The intensity variation is well managed by the frame, which results in the gradual release of the power and never betrays the force exerted on the shots. The speed with which it moves and the sweetspot create a remarkable combination of ball in terms of output, if there is a bit 'of arm to hold up the whole. On closures, no problem, the ball flat walking and you see, but do it from a distance requires physical, and, with his foot in the field, you can not beat better permanently, even if it does not hold at all. finding a trajectory in always rather tense and profound output.

The back is very tense, classic, a real razor which is useful especially in attack, but that is also played with confidence and decision, while the defense should be contained and controlled more sparingly. There is the side-spin, is exploited, but should not be exaggerated, Ezone 98 makes it better on a back clean and maintained.

 

A network is fast and responds very well, whether it's shot up, even with the edge, both on volleys sank. A network manageability offers a very interesting flexibility, aided by an ability to advance that remains intact on demi-volleys. It is this aspect, highlights how the Ezone 98 is a stretching frame or to the network, however, that is intended for a very varied game. Interestingly smash it is accurate, but above all comfortable and even stomping strong, the impact with the ball is still soft and comfortable. The yield is there and there is room to handle the power on smash, to place it or break.

At the service , an excellent strike plate, fast and rigorous by a directional point of view, it is accompanied by an interesting slice for good grip of rotation and a very low output characteristic. Both solutions allow margin and should not be squeezed to be effective, especially the strike plate, which is also in the progressive power delivery. How to Kick, it does a little 'harder to give a very parabola curve, but there is room for a blow up or placed defensive, while the Kick ripped does not make it better.

 

Yonex Ezone 98 2020Yonex Ezone 98 2020

Ultimately , Ezone 98 2020 renews the insignia of sensitivity and accuracy, with a more welcoming flat and smooth, but designed more to the strike plate that the spin. A complete racket, effective but not complex in its management, that manages to give satisfaction to a fast arm, though not very strong, involving him with a nice connection with the ball and a sweetness very appreciable impact. Power is not surprising, but there's substance to complete the picture of a precise and not severe competitive chassis. A little 'less hybrid, a bit' more classical, Ezone 98 stands especially for precision handling and feeling, would not spoiled, however, more general power, but it is also true that would not be so quick to move. For everything else, there is the custom!

Pareil pour moi ! Je joue Pure Drive depuis 15 ans, et le dernier modèle Pure Drive (2018 sauf erreur) manque à mon sens de sensations.
Et pour le bras ça reste pas ce qu'il y a de mieux.

A ce que j'ai lu, le confort est carrément mieux avec l'EZ 100 2020 (même si rigidité élevée), la puissance est là, le contrôle plutôt bon.
D'après les tests publiés pour le moment, il semblerait qu'il y ait en revanche le lift qui est en retrait par rapport à la Pure Drive. En même temps, le plan de cordage hyper ouvert de la Pure Drive apporte du lift, mais ça échappe assez vite en longueur si on fait pas attention :mellow:

Rapidos, la EZone 100 est un peu mieux ressortie que lors des précédents tests. La fermeté n'a pas été relevée en vrai point négatif. C'était plus nuancé.

Cet exemplaire était à 67 RA cordé, 324 kg.cm² & 320 g avec surgrip.

Par contre la Dunlop SX 300 a été jugée plus tolérante et confortable, et un poil moins maniable.

Les testeurs étaient entre 15/1 et 3/6, en mode avionneur...

Et les specs de la dunlop ? Pas vu perso de différence de maniabilité entre les 2. 100% d'accord pour la tolérance et le confort de la dunlop par rapport à l'ezone 100. Meilleur toucher également mais un peu moins puissante que l'ezone.

Petite précision je parle de comparatif entre l'ancienne ezone 100 et la nouvelle dunlop sx300. Pas pu essayer la nouvelle ezone encore
