Yonex Astrox 88D Tour

Product Description:
The Yonex Astrox 88D Tour is a high-performance badminton racket in the Astrox series, engineered for players who prioritise power and aggression in their game. It is especially popular among doubles players who frequently play from the backcourt and rely on smashes and drives.

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, 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.
  • 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.
  • Tungsten: Yonex incorporates tungsten in the Astrox badminton rackets to enhance the precision and stability of shots by optimising the weight distribution and increasing the frame's stiffness.
  • Rexis Shaft: crafted through an original Yonex moulding technique, is a high-performance shaft designed to enhance shot performance and dominate the game by offering precise control and improved playability.
  • Energy Boost Cap Plus: The uniquely shaped cap of this design maximises 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 utilised 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:

    • Skill Level: Ideal for advanced players who excel in aggressive backcourt play.
    • Playing Style: Best suited for doubles players focusing on power shots from the rear court, including smashes and clears.

    Maintenance Tips:

    • Regularly check and replace strings to ensure optimal performance.
    • Store the racket in a protective case, away from extreme temperatures to prevent damage.
    • Avoid hitting the racket on hard surfaces.

    The Yonex Astrox 88D Tour is designed for players who seek a powerful and aggressive style of play. Its head-heavy balance, combined with advanced Yonex technologies, makes it an excellent choice for doubles players who dominate from the backcourt. The racket’s design aids in delivering explosive power without sacrificing control, making it a formidable tool for advanced players looking to elevate their game.
