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.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
2. Energy Boost Cap
The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd (more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control
3. Advanced 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.
4. Revolutionary New Graphite Namd
By utilizing high quality Namd graphite throughout the shaft and frame of both models more flex is produced with a faster snapback, unleashing dramatic steep power. The material stays flexible even with increased swing speed, bending when swing speed increases and restoring its original hard shape at the end of the swing. The ability to bend even further and snap back rapidly, produces stronger shots and greater smash speeds.
5. Built-in T-Joint
‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
