STIFF FLEX FOR DEEP COURT DOUBLES ATTACKING

CENTRAL SPORTS TESTED:

The Astrox 88D – dubbed the ultimate rear-court doubles player racket. But what does that really mean and how well does it perform? We liked it a lot instantly. Striking colours and a nice feel in the hand give the 88D the classic hallmarks associated with high end Yonex models. And it doesn’t stop there. Once on court, the slight head heavy balance gives great power out the rear-court, particularly when smashing. It has a touch more head weight than its counterpart (Astrox 88S) and enables quick head speed in attacking strokes ultimately justifying its ‘Dominate’ title. If you favour those attacking rear-court shots, this racket will certainly serve you well. Do not worry too much about the ‘doubles player’ label – it is equally as adept on a singles court – but if you play a lot of doubles and favour playing at the back the 88D is well worth a look. It might be pricey, but there’s a definite feeling that you get what you pay for here.

SPECIFICATION

Flex: Stiff Frame: H.M. GRAPHITE/Namd/VOLUME CUT RESIN/Tungsten Shaft: H.M. Graphite/Namd Weight / Grip Size: 4U (Ave.83g) G5 | 3U (Ave.88g) G4 Stringing Advice: 4U 20-28 lbs | 3U 21-29 lbs Colour: Camel Gold

TECHNOLOGY:

Namd

Revolutionary Graphite

A world-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber.In high performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers, but in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.

AERO+BOX Frame

Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.

ISOMETRIC

Enlarged Sweet Spot

ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRICTM delivers greater control without sacrificing power. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD. *Tested by Yonex

Rotational Generator System

Counterbalanced Weight Distribution

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 rapid succession.

SOLID FEEL CORE

Cuts Vibration

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.

EXTRA SLIM SHAFT

Thinnest, Strongest Ever Produced by Yonex

Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.

*** ENERGY CAP PLUS***

Uniquely shaped cap which maximizes shaft performance.The front allows the shaft to flex, while the sides arch-shaped curve stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting.
