Item Code: AX9
Frame: H.M. Graphite/Tungsten
Shaft: H.M. Graphite/NANOMESH NEO
Weight / Grip Size: 4U (Ave.83g) G5
Stringing Advice: 4U 20-28lbs
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.
New dimension graphite Namd
A world-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber.
In high performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers, but in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.
