Used by players such as Caroline GarciaAngelique Kerber and Denis Shapovalov, the new Yonex V Core Flame collection lets you hit with a lot of spin and power to overcome your rivals. Start hitting balls with extreme amount of spin. 

Player benefits : Control - Manoeuvrability - Spin

The Yonex V Core Flame 98 racket is for players seeking control while keeping a light, manoeuvrable racket. With a  632 cm² racket headthis racket lets you place the ball where you want and move your opponent. Despite the small racket head, the Isometric shape increases the size of the sweet spot for decreased uncentered strokes. 

The 285 g weight along with the 32.5 cm balance allows you to accelerate the racket more quickly for more speed and spin on the ball. 

The 16x19 string pattern is perfect for this racket because it provides spin and more power. 

Player types:

- Mid-level players seeking control and spin


Isometric : isometric frame shape to enhance the sweet spot, along with tolerance and power
Namd : the technology modifies the structure of the graphite for more flexibility and an ability to return quicker into its' original position in order to provide better spin
Aero Trench : reduced grommet size on top of the racket for better air penetration and better spin 
Aero Fin : aerodynamic fins on the framer for better air penetration and maneuverability
Liner Tech : Increased entry angle of certain strings for a larger sweet spot and more string movement
