Yonex Astrox 88S Pro 3rd Edition: Elevate Your Doubles Game

The Yonex Astrox 88S Pro returns with its 3rd edition, continuing to revolutionise the doubles game with its state-of-the-art design and cutting-edge technology. Tailored for the aggressive doubles player, this racket promises to enhance your net play and empower your quick attacks.

What weight?

4U - User friendly, fast swings, responsive, but lacks that cutting edge, with the shaft being shorter the lighter weight closer to your hand doesn’t kick the rotational generator system as fast.

3U -  More powerful, More accurate, More feel, the 88S Pro is designed for consistency and flair, this racket gives you that in abundance. With the emphasis not being on power in this racket, the extra big of weight makes up for the balance and kicks in a much more solid feel.

Expanded Sweet Spot:

The Yonex Astrox 88S Pro Silver/Black 3U4 badminton racquet, with its 5mm longer length and expanded sweet spot area, is designed to provide fast maneuverability and increased precision. Perfect for fast rallies and securing points from front court attacks. Includes free restring and upgrades. * Note 5mm longer length compared to standard racket is 5mm shorter than most Yonex rackets.

Key Features:

  • Innovative Frame: Constructed with high-modulus graphite, the frame is engineered for resilience and forceful shot-making. Accompanied by the Tungsten and CFR make this one of Yonex's most stable and powerful entries yet.
  • Optimal Balance: With its slightly head-heavy configuration, the Astrox 88S Pro provides the perfect balance of power and control, allowing for forceful shots with precise placement.
  • Closer Feel: The 5mm length difference brings your feel closer to your hand, giving you an edge in both attack and defence touch, maximising the effect of the racket being an extension to your arm.

    Advanced Technologies:

    • Rotational Generator System: Achieves the perfect balance between racket weight and rotational speed for fluid transitions and powerful strokes.
    • AERO+BOX Frame: Combines the speed of an aerodynamic frame and the stability of a box frame, ensuring rapid swings and solid shot feel.
    • 2G-Namd™ :   This technology enables quicker shaft flex and snapback, generating explosive power for smashes and drives.
    • FLEX FORCE: Flex Force technology in Yonex rackets is designed to enhance the flexibility and snapback speed of the racket, thereby increasing the power of shots. This technology ensures that the racket frame flexes and returns to its shape quickly, enabling players to hit powerful shots with less effort.
    • ISOMETRIC™:   ISOMETRIC Technology for an Enlarged Sweet Spot: Experience an expanded sweet spot with ISOMETRIC technology, which optimises the intersection of the main and cross strings. This innovation provides greater control and power, helping you take your game to the next level.
    • POWER ASSIST BUMPER:   equipped with a tungsten-infused nylon bumper attached to the racquet, is designed to direct more weight into the shuttlecock, resulting in heavier and more powerful shots.
    • Ultra PE Fiber: Constructed from 'Ultra PEF'—an ultra polyethylene fiber that is both lightweight enough to float on water and durable enough to withstand immense forces—this shaft offers maximum shock absorption.
    • Tungsten: Yonex incorporates tungsten in the Astrox badminton rackets to enhance the precision and stability of shots by optimizing the weight distribution and increasing the frame's stiffness.
    • Super Slim Shaft: minimizes air resistance, facilitating faster swings, increased power, and enhanced maneuverability for players seeking a competitive edge in badminton.
    • Energy Boost Cap Plus: The uniquely shaped cap of this design maximizes shaft performance by allowing flex at the front while its sides' arch-shaped curve stabilises the racquet face, preventing the shaft from twisting.
    • CFR: CFR, or Compact Frame Reinforcement, in Yonex rackets is utilized to strengthen the racket frame without significantly increasing its weight. This technology ensures the frame is more durable and resistant to torsional forces, leading to improved stability and precision in shots.

    Player Suitability:

    • Advanced Dynamics: Crafted for advanced players seeking a racket that complements swift, attacking play at the front court with a focus on precision and agility.
    • Doubles Domination: Its quick handling and power generation make it an ideal choice for doubles specialists who thrive in fast exchanges.

    Maintenance and Care:

    • Stringing: Recommended stringing tension for 4U: 20 - 28 lbs, allowing you to customise the power and control to your playing style.
    • Care: Store in a racket bag away from extreme temperatures, and be sure to restring regularly for peak performance.
