Head Size

The most obvious difference between the two rackets is their head size with the Ezone 98 having a 98in head size and the Ezone 100 having a 100in head size.

Racket Length

Both tennis rackets have a racket length of 27 inches.

Strung Weight and Swing Weight

The Ezone 98 is 5g heavier than the Ezone 100 but as the Ezone 98 has a more head light balance, there is only a 1g difference in the two racket’s swing weight so you are not going to feel a huge difference between these two tennis rackets.

Strung Balance

Both tennis rackets have a head light balance with the Ezone 98 (6 pts HL) being slightly more head light than the Ezone 100 (4 pts HL).

Stiffness Rating

The Ezone 100 is the stiffer of the two rackets with a stiffness rating of 67, compared with a stiffness rating of 65 for the Ezone 98.

Power Level

Both tennis rackets would be considered low to medium-powered tennis rackets with the Yonex Ezone 100 being the more powerful of the two rackets.

String Pattern

Both tennis rackets have a 16 x 19 open string pattern which makes it easier to generate topspin on your shots.

Racket Recommendations

In my opinion, neither of these two tennis rackets are suited for beginners as they are far too heavy.

To get a lot more out of these tennis rackets, you need to have a full swing and be able to generate your own power so they will be more suited to an advanced tennis player.

An intermediate player could play with these rackets but I think most intermediate players will be better off going with a lighter tennis racket like the Babolat Pure Drive or the Wilson Clash 100.
