Unlike the Astrox 88D which is 10mm longer, the Astrox 88S badminton racket is only 5mm longer and is ideal for setting up decisive kills for the backcourt partner with precise drops, taps, and drives.
The Yonex Astrox 88S badminton racket is perfect for the frontcourt specialist. The 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 a bad option for backcourt players who typically are responsible for high power smashes to finish long rallies. Perfect for any players who love attacking the net and playing up front during doubles.
Yonex made the “ASTROX 88 S” entire frame flex allowing the player to hold the shuttlecock for accurate control and placement.

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.
