New Stability Weight Distribution

The Yonex Astrox 88D Pro badminton racquet offers enhanced stability during swings, maximising smash power and effectively breaking down defences during back-court attacks. Its added weight distribution on the frame's sides provides an expert level of control and accuracy. Includes free restringing and upgrades.

Product Overview:

  • 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.
  • Responsive Shaft: The high-modulus graphite shaft delivers increased flexibility and rapid response, allowing for swift stroke play. Adding   2G-Namd™, FLEX FORCE, Ultra PE Fiber to the shaft adds a new dynamic producing a shaft that's been engineered for doubles.
  • Dynamic Balance: A head-heavy racket tailored for thunderous smashes and commanding drives, perfect for the attacking doubles player. Accompanying the rotational generator system to enhance the powerful shots without compromising usability.

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.
  • POWERASSIST 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.
  • Ultra Slim Shaft: NANOPREME has been incorporated into the shaft, providing a 10% increase in stability compared to traditional racquets. The Ultra Slim Shaft rebounds almost twice as far as a standard racquet within the same 0.018-second timeframe.
  • 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 Players: The Astrox 88D Pro is designed for seasoned players who demand a racket that can keep up with their power and precision.
  • Aggressive Style: Ideal for the rear-court dominator in doubles, delivering relentless attacks from smashes to clears.

Maintenance and Care:

  • Optimal Stringing: For 4U, a tension of 20 - 28 lbs is recommended, while 3U players can go up to 21 - 29 lbs for that perfect blend of power and control.
  • Storage: Keep it in a racket bag away from extreme temperatures and humidity.
  • Inspection: Regular checks on the racket’s condition will ensure peak performance during matches.

Conclusion:

With the Yonex Astrox 88D Pro, elevate your doubles game to pro levels. Inspired by electrifying play, this racket promises to enhance your on-court prowess with every smash, drive, and clear. It’s more than just a racket; it’s a symbol of power and precision, designed for those who lead the charge and inspire with their play.
