Below is a short video summarising the specs of both rackets:

Strung Weight and Swing Weight

Both rackets have very similar strung and swing weights with the Vcore 100 being no more than five grams heavier than the Ezone 100.

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

Head Size and Racket Length

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


Both tennis rackets have the exact same balance at 4 points head light.

Head light rackets are becoming the norm as players like the maneuverability and control you get with a more head light frame.

Frame Stiffness Rating

Both rackets have relatively high stiffness ratings at 67 for the Ezone 100 and 65 for the Vcore 100.

Beam Width

The Yonex Ezone 100 has a beam width of 23.8mm / 26.5mm / 22.5mm while the Vcore 100 has a beam width of 25.3mm / 25.3mm / 22mm.

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


Both rackets are low to medium powered so you will need good technique to get the most out of them.

If you haven’t quite developed a full swing then the Ezone 100 will be your best option as its 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 x 19 string pattern which helps to generate spin on your shots.


For me, the Ezone 100 is the winner in terms of design as I love the blue color 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 two tennis rackets.

However, I would 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.
