Yonex EZONE LITE Tennis Racquet (Smash Pink) (Model #EZ17LTPK)
YONEX EZONE LITE PINK PERFORMANCE TENNIS RACQUET
The Yonex EZONE Lite Pink Performance Tennis Racquet is a medium-thick beamed (24mm/26mm/22mm) frame geared towards beginner to intermediate players with an already competent game, who are looking for a pink stick that soaks up unwanted vibrations and shock. This stick provides access to ample spin and decent power (Rule of Thumb: The wider the frame beam, while looking at it sideways, the more power it will provide), while still maintaining control on groundstrokes and volleys. It comes loaded with technologies that will be discussed in-depth below.
The strung weight of the EZONE Lite Pink Performance Tennis Racquet is 10.1 ounces, and the lightweight frame gives it great maneuverability on groundstokes and at the net; and keeps your arm from tiring going into the 2nd and 3rd sets. It will also help with arm issues, and especially shoulder issues while serving.
The 295 point swingweight, 1 point head light balance, and super spin-friendly 16x18 string pattern are all geared towards spin, which has become very popular these days, and for good reason. The 16x18 string pattern is such because it makes for much larger squares in the string bed, allowing more of the ball to be gripped, which ‘bites’ into it when brushing up and imparting heavy, heavy topspin or slice.
The wider range of string tension than on most frames, 40 to 55 pounds, gives the player more variance on whether or not they need more power and spin, or more control. Another rule of thumb is the stringbed works like a trampoline, and the lower tensions allow the strings to bend more, which slingshots the ball forward - just like a trampoline. The lower tensions allow the cross strings more movement, and the resulting snapback propels the strings upward on whippy shots, and this imparts even more spin, yet. Tighter stringbeds, conversely, have more control and tend to keep the ball inside the baseline, even on imperfect swings and volleys - do not swing on your volleys - just punch!
This racquet performs best in the hands of beginner to intermediate players with compact-medium strokes.

New EZONE Technologies:
| || ISOMETRIC ENHANCED SWEETSPOT: The iconic Yonex head shape, aka Isometric Design, increases the sweetspot 7% over that of a traditional, rounded head, because of the longer mains and cross strings towards the top of the frame. |
| || MICRO OFFSET GROMMET LAYOUT: The conventional design creates pinching or pressure points between strings and grommets, whereas the new straightened design allows for more string movement and a smoothed response. The result is more power with less unwanted vibration and shock. |
| || QUAKE SHUT GEL AIR: Simply put, a shock absorbing gel, aka Quake Shut Gel, has been added to the handle to reduce unwanted vibration and shock, leaving you with more ball feel and energy going into the 2nd and 3rd sets. It is a noticeable competitive advantage that must be felt and experienced to truly understand. |
| || SHOCKLESS GROMMET SYSTEM: The grommets at the bottom of the head have Quake Shut Gel embedded, which even further reduces shock and vibration. You can play multiple matches per day with these frames, and your arm will feel less fatigued, and certainly less sore the following day. |
