Yonex VCore 98 Tennis Racquet
SCIENTIFICALLY CRAFTED SPIN
The 6th generation of the VCore Series focuses on spin and speed.
A new frame design shifts the widest part of the racquet towards the upper hoop for more string movement where players make contact with the ball most often. The frame thickness in the upper hoop is also reduced for greater racquet head speed.
The innovative design features and materials combine to produce a vicious racquet flex, heavy ball bite and faster racquet head speed, resulting in 5.3% more spin and a 3% steeper drop angle compared to the previous model.
The VCore Series is endorsed on Tour by Denis Shapovalov
Made in Japan for the ultimate in manufacturing standards and quality control.

ISOMETRIC™ - Yonex's signature technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRIC™ design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRIC™ racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings and delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
Aero Fin Technology - Aerodynamic fins that were first featured in the VCORE SV have also been upgraded and positioned towards the bottom of the VCORE’s frame. The new Aero Fins are strategically carved out sections that allow for improved handling.
Aero Trench - To achieve faster racquet head speeds for increased spin potential, the new Aero Trench reduces drag by uniquely hiding the grommets located at the top of the racquet frame.
Liner Tech - Straight hole grommets elongate the main strings by making the entry angle for the string more vertical, resulting in a horizontal sweet spot expansion and increased string movement.
Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) - A stretchy mesh material is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibrations. Improves touch and precision.
2G-Namd Flex Force - Unlike conventional graphite, Namd, incorporated into the upper throat and lower frame, is able to maintain its flex even when a load is applied allowing the racquet to quickly flex and snap back for maximum spin potential.
The new Flex Force graphite features a carbon nanotube (CNT) structure that binds the graphite together, which reduces energy loss. Due to its resilient properties, the material quickly returns to normal after the initial deformation.
String Sync Grommets - Unique to Yonex, a thin grommet nozzle is inserted into a larger frame hole at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions to allow the grommet to move in sync with the main strings to increase string snapback speed for extra bite on the ball.
