The Yonex Percept 97 is a thin beamed, flexible racquet for players seeking precision and feel. This racquet is well suited to players who have well-established swing technique and prefer a more traditional, smaller head size for less bulk and more accuracy.
Technologies in the Yonex Percept 97
ISOMETRIC 7% LARGER SWEET SPOT
SERVOFILTER: 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 (*Yonex tests)
FLEXCON SYSTEM: A tapered and elongated box frame shaft is composed with 2G-Namd™ Flex Force and SERVO FILTER. This system helps the racquet to flex and extend the ball pocketing duration at the impact.
2G-NAMD™ FLEX FORCE: Flex Force graphite allows the racquet to quickly flex and snap back for greater spin and faster ball acceleration off the string bed. Results in 15%* more flexibility on the racquet shaft (*Yonex tests)
