If perception became reality, every tennis player would never lose a point. Every serve would be an ace. Every volley, crisp and on point. We all imagine and perceive ourselves winning every point, but it's the execution that gets in the way. Yonex has solved that problem with the Percept series for 2023.
The beloved VCore Pro series has been redesigned, and now redefines what ultimate feel and control means to a tennis racquet and player. Embrace your longing for the ultimate players racquet with the Yonex Percept 97D. This racquet will make any heavy hitter salivate at the responsiveness and feel this racquet provides. The 2nd heaviest in the Percept series, the 18x20 pattern gives flat shots unmatched feel and string durability, and Yonex perceives the Percept line of racquets to make you a winner on the court. Yonex has brought back and implemented some new technology and design for the 1st incarnation of the Yonex Percept. Here are some highlights of what Yonex has welded into the Percept line:
The SERVO FILTER reduces unnecessary vibrations faster than graphite without the filter, allowing players to receive more accurate sensory information to create any shot imaginable. A transparent film placed between graphite enhances flexibility when pressure is applied and filters out unnecessary vibration. 60% more flexible and 500% faster vibration dampening than graphite
IMPROVED BALL-POCKETING with the the FlexCon System allows the racquet shaft to flex and extend the ball pocketing duration, making it easier for players to control and place the ball accurately. This results in 15% more flexibility on the racquet shaft
STABLE BALL TRAJECTORY frame advancements of the PERCEPT include an increased graphite composition that stabilizes the racquet face upon impact, delivering a more precise ball trajectory.
2G-NAMD™ FLEX FORCE graphite allows the racquet to quickly flex and snap back for greater spin and faster ball acceleration off the string bed.
STIFF RACQUET FACE DESIGN is an increase of graphite content of the racquet face. This improves ball control by stabilizing the racquet face at impact. This results in more stability on the racquet face
