In the zone - Yonex eZone
by Dominic Pedler
June 2011

The Japanese masters of super stylish equipment return with the premium eZone series whose flagship drivers come in a choice of 450cc and 420cc heads, both with a classy traditional pear shape and a centre of gravity aligned exactly in the centre of the clubface (unlike so many rivals where the sweetspot can be particularly high in the face).

The standard shaft is Yonex’ new Nanopreme model developed in collaboration with a US nanotechnology company to provide more power from a highly elastic form of graphite and more control and stability through impact. Guide: £299 (£349 with Yonex Rexis shaft).

The eZone irons continue the theme of precision CG placement, starting with the lavish Composite iron which now lowers the CG dramatically with a cleverly concealed 20g tungsten sole weight within an L-shaped cavity construction that effectively hottens up the sweetspot across a larger area of the maraging steel face.

While visually far sleeker than a typical hybrid-style set, the Composite still delivers an ultra forgiving performance helped further by the same Nanopreme shaft (£999, 5-SW).

The eZone range also includes two top-end forgings: the Forged Type PB, a moderate ‘Pocket Back’ cavity that comes standard with the excellent Nippon 950 lightweight steel shaft (£999 4-SW); and the sumptuous MB Muscle Back which Japanese whizz kid, Ryo Ishikawa, is already playing.
