Sneak Peek: Yonex VCORE Tour F racquets


rs-2

In March 2015, Yonex introduces the latest update to their most precise-feeling racquet line. Used by ATP and WTA pros Borna Coric and Sabine Lisicki, the VCORE Tour F series features Yonex’s new Aero Fin technology – a unique frame construction that places little “fins” at the top of the frame that decrease air resistance and increase swing speed. The racquets fly through the air as easily as a shark cuts through water! In addition, a 16×21 string pattern is used to improve control while preserving power and dwell time.

Three new models being introduced will be available for pre-sale at Tennis Warehouse on Monday, March 16.

Jason made the switch to the Yonex Ezone Ai 100 this year, making it his No. 1 racquet for 2014. Brittany did as well.

Brittany: “After spending a year looking for my new racquet. I was finally able to end my search with the Yonex EZONE Ai 100. It has the perfect blend of control and power for my game. I love the Yonex feel and the sleek black/green cosmetics. It has a little less power than my two previous racquets, but this allowed me to take fuller, faster swings and receive more stability.
