New Frame Design And Racket Length

Making the whole frame flexible allows the “ASTROX 88 S” to hold the shuttlecock for accurate control, while the “ASTROX 88 D" has more flex in the upper part of the frame transmitting maximum power to the shuttlecock to break through the opponents. The overall length of the"88 S" is only 5mm longer than the standard racket, which enhances both accuracy and power while the"88 D" is 10 mm longer than the standard racket to enable potent attacks.

New Energy Boost cap

The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “NAMD (more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racket face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control.

Rotational Generator System

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.

Namd

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 rackets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers, but in NAMD, the 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.

New Built-in T-Joint

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

Nanometric

NANOMETRIC improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibers taking racket shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60% thinner than a conventional racket while retaining stiffness, Yonex has created a revolutionary lightweight racket with lightening head speed and control.

NANOMETRIC is the new material that applies the NANOALLOY Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

Where is my order shipped from?

    How long will it take for me to receive my order?
  • The delivery time varies. Here are typical deliver times (ground service) to different regions across continental USA:
  • Midwest: 2 - 3 business days
  • East Coast: 3 – 4 business days
  • Southwest: 4 – 5 business days
  • West Coast: 4 – 5 business days
  • We also have expedited (2-day & 3-day) shipping options available for guaranteed delivery.
  • The Astrox 88S, with more flex in the frame than the Astrox 88D, is still a head heavy racket suited for players who like a head heavy frame. Ideal stringing tension of 25lbs allows for powerful smashes and good repulsion. Overall, the Astrox 88S is good for doubles and can also double up as a singles racket. However, its head heavy frame can be a disadvantage during long rallies. Pros: Excellent power and repulsion Cons: Not ideal for long rallies during singles play.
