Yonex Astrox 88S Play Badminton Racket 4U5, with a stiff, 5mm longer shaft and head-heavy balance, has been designed for the Skillful, front-court player. This longer shaft attribute gives a fantastic balance between reduced air resistance and extra power, resulting in the perfect racket for those who like to attack from the front. The racket also features Yonex’s new Energy Boost Cap, which provides a boost in energy transfer from the player to the racket by way of flexing the shaft in a single direction, reducing torsion of the shaft and energy loss. Combined with the new and innovative Namd graphite technology which produces extra flex and snap-back, this racket gives additional power without the loss of control. The point of flex on the Yonex Astrox 88S is at the bottom of the frame, near the T-Joint, which enables the string-bed the ability to hold the shuttle for longer giving the player more acceleration and agility. Please note, where applicable, we will relogo the strings on rackets which have been restrung.

NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.<br><br>*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
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 a rapid succession.
The new carbon material combination used in the primary composition creates a different ‘Flex point’ in each racquet.
From the initial movement of the player to the impact, the new dimension graphite is difficult to harden, and the shaft extends and accumulates energy due to the speed of the fast swing. Since the follow-through of the swing is smaller after direct impact with the shuttle, the swing speed drops and the new dimension graphite regains hardness and strengthens the resilience of the shaft, allowing the energy to explode rapidly before returning to its original state.
