Yonex Astrox 88 D Badminton Racket

Endorsed by a respected double specialist, Lee Yong Dae

Legendary Korean doubles player Lee Yong Dae, the Beijing Olympic Gold Medalist and former BWF World #1, tested the racquet several times during its development and gave the following feedback: “I’m really impressed that Yonex managed to improve the performance every time I tested these unique racquets. The “ASTROX 88 S and 88 D” have become racquets that maximize the performance of both the front and back court doubles player positions.”

The “88 S and 88 D” also feature the Rotational Generator System technology that is unique to the ASTROX series and is already performing for the world’s best. By precisely distributing the weight throughout the entire racquet it prevents a loss of follow-through power and allows quick fire attacks by creating a smooth transition into the next shot.

Technology:

New Frame Design and Racquet Length

Making the whole frame flexible allows the“ASTROX 88 S”to hold the shuttlecock for accurate control, while the“ASTROX 88 D” has more flex in the upper part of the frame transmitting maximum power to the shuttlecock to break through the opponents. In addition the overall length of the“88 S” is only 5mm longer, which enhances both accuracy and power while the“88 D” is 10 mm longer to provide powerful attacks.

 

New Enargy Boost Cap

The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd[1](more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control

Rotational Generator System

By applying the counterbalance theory, weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. The transition to the next shot can be performed smoothly with a rapid succession.

nanometric logo

NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.

*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
