Strung Weight and Swing Weight

Both rackets have very similar strung and swing weights with the Vcore 100 being around 2 grams heavier than the Ezone 100.

With only a difference of 2 grams, both rackets will have a similar feel in terms of weight in your hand.

The two tennis rackets have the same head size (100in) and racket length (27in).

Beam Width

The Ezone 100 has a beam width of 23.5mm / 26mm / 22mm while the Vcore 100 has a beam width of 24mm / 25mm / 22mm.

From my experience playing with both rackets, there wasn’t much of a difference caused by their different beam widths.

Power

Both the Ezone 100 and the Vcore 100 are low to medium powered tennis rackets so you will need good technique to get the most out of these rackets.

If you haven’t quite developed a full swing then the Ezone 100 will be your best option as it definitely is easier to generate power with this racket when compared with the Vcore 100.

However, the difference in terms of power isn’t huge as both rackets offer easy access to power and spin.

String Pattern

Both tennis rackets have an open 16×19 string pattern which helps to generate easy spin on your shots.

Design

For me, the Ezone 100 is definitely the winner in terms of design as I love the sky blue colour and I have never been a fan of red colored tennis rackets like the Vcore 100.

My Recommendations

In terms of racket specs, there isn’t a big difference between the Ezone 100 and the Vcore 100.

However, I would definitely recommend the Vcore 100 over the Ezone 100 as I felt it has just a little bit more control and it felt a lot less stiff than the Ezone 100.
