The Yonex Percept 97 is defined by raw speed and spin-friendly targeting, perfect for those who want a user-friendly tennis racket with great feel. Notable features include an elongated shaft to enhance pocketing, flexibility and control, along with a stiffer racquet face for extra stability and power. To help with comfort, Yonex adds a Servo Filter, which utilizes a thin elastic layer in the shaft to filter out harsh vibrations. Similar to its predecessor, this racket's graphite layup is enhanced by 2G-NAMD Flex Force, a material technology that enables the frame to flex optimally upon impact. Ultimately, the Percept 97, with its seductive combination of speed, spin and feel, is a great option for those who want a light and spin-friendly player's racket with impressive control and feel.

Colour: Olive Green


  • Isometric - Enlarges your sweet spot by 7%. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped Isometric racket optimises the intersection of the main and cross strings
  • Servo Filter - A transparent film placed between graphite enhances flexibility when pressure is applied and filters out unnecessary vibration. Allowing for 60%* more flexible and 500%* faster vibration dampening than graphite
  • Flexcon System - 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
  • Stiff Racket Face Design - Increase the graphite content of the racquet face. This improves ball control by stabilizing the racquet face at impact. Resulting in 3%* more stability on the racquet face
  • Lock Booster - An improved grommet design that promotes string contact for efficient energy transfer and ball crushing power
