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* 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.
*approximate measurement when compared to a conventional racquet shaft, tested by YONEX

“TOUGH G FIBER” is a mixture of Carbon Nanotube and Glass Fiber which has approximately 3 times the elasticity of conventional material. This new technology is utilized in the frame of “ASTROX 66” to enhance flexibility and maximize repulsion power which provides a soft shot feeling and increases the flight distance of the shuttle. This badminton racquet delivers the shuttle to the back of the court creating further advantage in the game.
