The Astrox range are Yonex’s most attack orientated rackets and have super seeded the out-going Voltric range. Astrox rackets are known as ‘counterbalance’ frames. This means they will offer a more precise weight distribution throughout the grip end, frame top and joint, thus increasing the rotational power the racket provides.
The Astrox 88S Pro is designed to complement the evolving, faster style of doubles play, which requires even faster take backs for continuous powerful attack shots. New advancements are made through the introduction of the Volume Cut Resin, a groundbreaking resin that provides powerful adhesion with less material and weight. This resin is highly versatile in that it can increase durability and strength or reduce weight without compromising strength.
Distinguished by the Rotational Generator System, Yonex’s intricate weight distribution technology designed with the counterbalance theory that allows head-heavy rackets to recover faster between shots. By employing the Volume Cut Resin, the new 88S model has a further refined Rotational Generator System where intricate weight distribution can be taken to the next level. The frame structure is evolved with a larger sweet spot made possible by the strength-reinforced Isometric head shape. The grommets are improved with a new pattern that uses larger, strategically placed grommets, a technology that allows more string movement at impact and ultimately increasing shuttle hold for assertive shot-making.
The 88S Pro model, designed for front-court players, will have longer shuttle hold for precise net 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: Utilising high quality Namd graphite throughout the frame produces more flex with a faster snap back, unleashing dramatic steep power.
Extra Slim Shafts – An ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot
Energy Boost Cap/Plus – Uniquely shaped cap which maximises shaft performance. The front allows the shaft to flex, while the sides arch-shaped curve stabilises the racket face by preventing the shaft from twisting
Isometric – Increases the size of your sweet spot
New Grommet Pattern – Single pass grommet holes for reduced string stress, maximising performance
Solid Feel Core – Reduces vibrations travelling down the shaft for improved comfort
AEROBOX Frame – A combination of faster swing speeds and a solid feel
Volume Cut – A powerful lightweight adhesive, for enhanced counterweight balance across the grip end, joint and frame top.
