Technology Used:

Dual Optimun System

The Yonex Duora Strike is embedded with Dual Optimum System. For forehand smashes, the Duora Z Strike badminton racket gives you pinpoint power and an increase in hold and repulsion, also providing you with instant repulsion on drives. Consistent shots and more solid control are enabled with the enlarged sweet spot.

NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon material developed by Yonex based on our unique NANOSCIENCE technology. Created from a material originally developed for next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racket industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.

Solid Feel core

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.

Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.

Compact Frame

The Duora Z Strike badminton racket is one of the first rackets, from YONEX with a compact frame. The smaller frame size further reduces unwanted air resistance and improves feel.

The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.

New Grommet Pattern

The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.

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.

Aero + Box Frame

The AERO+BOX Frame combination produces the solid hitting feel and quick swing.

DUORA Grommet

The new DUORA Grommet design features 8 linked grommets made with differing thicknesses on either side of the frame. When hit on the box side, thicker and harder grommets on the aero side result in a stiffer string bed, ultimately increasing launch power on the shuttlecock.

A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off center shot.

NANOMETRIC improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibers taking the 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 which applies the NANOALLOY Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

Control Support Cap

The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racket for easier gripping, fast follow-through, and the sharpest maneuverability.

YONEX has designed a new grommet pattern called the HORIZONTAL-A CONCEPT that has helped to create the smallest frame in the history. The pattern anchors 4 strings horizontally to allow greater flex in the string bed and to create an enlarged sweet spot at the top of the frame. So, even off-center shots can be powerful.

    The Yonex Duora ZStrike badminton racket is the flagship model from Yonex in the Duora series. The Duora series allows for huge forehands and quick backhands using its revolutionary technology. An even balanced frame coupled with an extra slim shaft makes the Yonex Duora ZStrike an ideal frame for players looking for a maneuverable badminton racket. We tested the 3U4 version which seemed to add power to smashes and clears. The extra stiff frame provides adequate control. The Duora Z-Strike feels like an extension of your arm and feels comfortable to maneuver from all areas of the badminton court. It is the racket of choice of Victor Axelsen, World Champion 2018.
    Smash - 9.2
    BW experts found that Duora ZStrike badminton racket generates no less power than a heavy head racket. That is what makes the racket intriguing. An even balanced frame with a slim shaft providing ample power on smashes. Overall our BW experts gave 9.2/10
    Drop- 8.5
    The Duora ZStrike provided sufficient control and feel for the drop shots on the forehand and the backhand. The drops were precise and clean. The compact head was not much of a hindrance for our experts who tested the racket. The BW experts said it took less time in mastering the drop shots with the Yonex Duora Z strike.
    Clear- 9.0
    It is easy to hit clears with Yonex Duora Z strike badminton racket. Having enough weight on the head has resulted in distinguishing the Yonex Duora Z strike badminton racket from the rest in the category of evenly balanced or light headed rackets.
    Drive- 7.5
    Our BW experts felt the Yonex Duora Z-Strike badminton racket lacks in swift countering of the attacks of the opponents. Though the racket has an extra slim shaft and is maneuverable the drives were not as crisp. The response from the forehand side is slightly different from the backhand side. It certainly would take some time getting used to the frame before achieving a high degree of sharpness and thrust on your drives.
    Defensive Lift- 8.2
    The Yonex Duora ZStrike is good at defensive lifts. Strong hands are recommended for defensive lifts with Duora Z strike racket. The Duora ZStrike racket is not the fastest in executing the defensive lifts but has managed quite well. Our BW experts gave 8.2/10.
    Net Kill- 8.0
    The majority of the BW experts experienced delivery of great touch because of the solid frame for net kills. On the whole, the BW expert team gave 8.0/10 for the Yonex Duora ZStrike badminton
    The BW experts had a great time testing the Yonex Duora Z strike for a good six weeks. The racket is good for advanced players who like power, control, and placements. Even the intermediate player will find the Duora Z-Strike an intriguing option. As per BW experts, the torque of Duora Z strike is absolutely rock solid. The racket is as good as the Voltric LD Force. The Duora Z strike has a tighter feel in comparison to Lin Dan Force racket, which is considered as a standard size head. The concept of Duora system is a unique concept from Yonex. Overall the Duora system helps with providing ample power on the forehand and more precision on the backhand. In our opinion, it might be the perfect singles badminton racket, even better than the ZForce 2.
