The Yonex Astrox 88 Skill badminton racket has immense power in the front for quick taps, drives, net kills, and defense. This is not to say it is an inferior option for backcourt players who typically are responsible for high power smashes to finish long rallies.

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 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 provide powerful 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.

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.

  • Since its introduction in 2017, the Astrox 88S and 88D have become quite popular with players at all levels. The introduction of the Astrox 99 has changed that a bit but still, the Astrox 88S/D rackets have a loyal customer base, especially among those who love playing doubles. The Astrox 88S is a front court player's delight. With its flex frame and stiff shaft, it allows for extremely quick racket speed, taps and sharp drops at the net. Badminton Warehouse invited Peter Sidorczuk, an expert doubles player in the Chicagol and area, to try out the Astrox 88S and provide feedback. Peter is loyal to the HL brand and is particular about his racket preferences. Yet, as you can see from the video below, he is quite surprised with how the 88S felt.
