Yonex tennis racquets are growing in popularity on tour and among players on the club and rec level. Let's go through what they have to offer.
Why get a Yonex tennis racquet? There are quite a few players you could ask. The fanbase of Yonex tennis racquets have been growing in recent years and the boom that Babolat had some years ago now seems to happen to Yonex. And the Japanese company has taken a few pages out of the Babolat book when it comes to the simplicity in their racquet offering, while also making sure they offer better quality control than any other major racquet brand on the market.

Yonex Tennis Racquets Explained
Yonex mainly offer three lines:
Yonex Ezone for power
Yonex VCORE for spin
Yonex VCORE Pro for control
They also have the Astrel line, which is more of a budget-oriented family of racquets made for players who need more help from the racquet.
A bunch of top pros use Yonex racquets such as Nick Kyrgios, Denis Shapovalov, Naomi Osaka and Caroline Garcia to name a few.
I have reviewed plenty of Yonex racquets on this website and on my YouTube channel. Most recently the new Yonex VCORE racquets, I also made the switch to the Yonex Ezone Tour for a while (until my arm said no) and I'm a big fan of the Yonex VCORE Pro 97 HD, which was one of the best racquets in 2019.
There are a many good things to say about Yonex racquets, but like with everything else, it depends on who you are as a player. I sometimes struggle with the Isometric head shape (maybe from a more visual point-of-view), while it does seem to expand the sweet spot and create a more forgiving string bed.

Hey Jonas, why do you think they’re gaining so much popularity? It’s clear that they’re gaining traction everywhere over the past couple of years. More money sponsoring players? Better racquets? Better marketing? Better pricing? Better relationship with shops?
Hi Bruno, I think the quality control is a big deal, that they have exciting sponsored pros in Shapovalov, Wawrinka, Kyrgios and Osaka and that they are a bit different with the Isometric head shape. All these factors contribute to their rise in popularity.
Jonas, I was wondering why your arm didn’t gel with the Ezone Tour? The lower RA is supposed to be arm friendly but perhaps that’s not the case?
Just listened to your video Jonah…….I’m going to pass on the Tour as my arm is probably too sensitive. Thanks for the video…..
does it have a bigger sweet spot than other racquets and what weight do they come and head size.
The isometric head shape seems to help, yes
