In this article, I will look at the specs of both rackets to see how they compare to each other.
Ezone 100 vs Pure Aero Comparison
For the below comparison, I have used the 2022 version of the Ezone 100 and the 2023 version of the Pure Aero (or “PA”).
Racket Specs Comparison
Main Differences: The Yonex Ezone 100 has a slightly lower swing weight (317 vs 322), a higher frame stiffness rating (67 vs 65), and a thicker beam width (23.8mm / 26.5mm / 22.5mm vs 23mm / 26mm / 23mm).
Similarities: Both rackets have the same head size (100in), racket length (27in), strung Weight (11.2oz), unstrung weight (10.6oz), balance point (4pts HL), and string pattern (16 x 20).

Head to Head
The Ezone 100 is best for power, with the Pure Aero winning in terms of control, spin, and arm friendliness.
However, the difference between the two rackets isn’t huge as they both have very similar specs.
These rackets are best used by intermediate to advanced players as I think they are too heavy for most beginners to play with.
If you are a beginner and you still want to get one of these rackets, then the Ezone 100 will be the slightly better choice as it offers more power.
