The ASTROX series will help you take the point to your opponent with devastating smashes and steep attacks. Developed for aggressive play, ASTROX racquets are designed to dominate every match. It starts with the application of counterbalance theory to racquet design. Our Rotational Generator System distributes the weight throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control, enabling you to transition between shots smoothly, in rapid succession. Namd, a graphite that produces more flex and faster snapback, lets ASTROX racquets unleash dramatic power. Innovative design like the new Energy Boost Cap maximize Namd’s advantage, giving you more flex on the front of the shaft while helping to stabilize the racquet face on every shot. The original ISOMETRIC frame has also evolved into a more ISOMETRIC shape, expanding the sweet spot. Designed for reduced power loss from off-center shots, the 2.9% larger sweet spot increases power. Seize the moment on court and overpower the competition with ASTROX series racquets.
Carbon nanotubes with high bonding strength are evenly attached to carbon fibers, dramatically improving interfacial adhesion with resin. By adopting a new carbon material for the shaft part, which has the property of not becoming hard even if the swing speed is increased, it produces a rapid restoring force from a tough bend over impact and gives explosive smash power.
Yonex’s unique square frame shape “Isometric” realizes a sweet area that is wider in the vertical and horizontal directions than a general circular frame by equalizing the lengths of the vertical and horizontal strings. Born from Yonex, this technology was the first badminton racket in the world to be installed in the Isometric 500 released in 1992 after winning numerous titles with top players in tennis. Since then, it has been popular with many players as a world standard.
Rotational generator system
The new weight distribution design enables smooth racket work and realizes high deciding power with continuous smash.
Solid Feel Core
By incorporating a foaming agent inside the frame, harmful vibration during hitting is cut.
Aero + box shape
A quick swinging aero shape and a box shape that stores power are used in the right place.
New built-in T-shaped joint
By combining epoxy resin and foaming agent, surface stability is further improved and controllability is improved.
Super Slim Shaft
The slimmed shaft cuts air resistance and enhances operability
Energy Boost Cap
The shape that makes the shaft easier to bend and suppresses twisting transfers the energy accumulated by bending to the shuttle without loss. In addition, surface blurring is reduced and controllability is improved.
Vibration Dampening Mesh. A special mesh-like vibration absorbing material is built into the grip. By using it in a wider range than before, vibration absorption is increased and a comfortable shot feeling is realized.
