What is NAMD Technology?
NAMD technology is a proprietary material technology developed by Yonex. It stands for "Nano-Advanced Material Development" and is a type of carbon nanotube material that is used in the construction of badminton racket frames.
NAMD technology is designed to enhance the flex and snapback of the racket frame, providing players with increased power and speed on their shots. The technology works by creating a stronger bond between the carbon fibers in the racket frame, which allows the frame to flex more and snap back quickly, generating more power and speed.
According to Yonex, the use of NAMD technology in badminton racket frames can result in a 7% increase in repulsion performance, a 14% increase in stability, and a 20% increase in shock absorption compared to rackets without NAMD technology.
Many of Yonex's high-end badminton racket series, such as the Astrox and Nanoflare series, incorporate NAMD technology in their construction. The technology has been well-received by professional players and is considered to be one of the most innovative material technologies used in badminton racket manufacturing.
