The Astrox range has been developed for players looking for power and a strong smash. The badminton rackets in this range are equipped with NAMD technology, which allows the nanomaterial to be attached directly to the graphite fibre so that the shaft can store energy and redistribute it at impact. The result is a more powerful and explosive strike. Get more attacking power with the Yonex Astrox 88D Tour (3U-G4) racquet and its powerful offensive profile! Stiff and head-balanced, this racquet offers unbeatable hitting power. The stiff shaft will increase the aggressiveness of your shots. The Rotational Generator System (RGS) is the flagship technology of Astrox racquets. It eliminates the sensation of head balance while providing maximum offensive power through the application of counterbalance theory. In addition, a new process has been introduced to slightly increase the sweetspot and allow greater string movement while promising durability and lightness: Volume Cut Resin. In terms of frame shape, this Yonex racquet continues to rely on the Aero+Box Frame for the perfect combination of feel and aerodynamics, while the Solid Feel Core process will reduce vibration for greater comfort. In the shaft, the slim Extra Slim Shaft acts on the repellency and aerodynamics of the racquet for maximum efficiency.
Inside the shaft, Namd Technology and Rexis material (made in Japan) tightly bind nano-materials to carbon fibres to improve power and feel. Finally, the Energy Boost Cap Plus allows you to adapt the performance of the shaft according to the type of hit you are making.
On the one hand, it increases the flexibility of the shaft for total power, on the other hand, it guarantees a very good control of the wheel by stabilizing the shaft. The Astrox 88D Tour is a powerful shaft that is ideal for doubles players who prefer to play from the baseline. It is a perfect match for the Astrox 88S Tour with its more versatile profile for those who prefer to play at the net and in the forward area.
