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.
Although not made in Japan, the Astrox 88S Tour has all the benefits and qualities, of that of the Pro model. It is designed for the front to mid-court player, who is looking to dominate the court with a skilful, attacking game. Featuring an extra slim rexis shaft, which will cut through the air quicker, allowing for a stronger, more intense shot. A new lightweight adhesive, Volume Cut Resin, brings an enhanced counterweight balance across the grip, t-joint and top of the frame. It also features a new energy boost cap, which is uniquely shaped to maximise shaft performance, whilst also helping to stabilise the racket face by preventing the shaft from twisting. The 88S Tour has a higher flex point which allows the shuttle to stay on the string bed longer, increasing your acceleration and power through the shuttle.
Please note, that no head cover is supplied with this racket.
Namd: Utilising high quality Namd graphite throughout the frame produces more flex with a faster snap back, unleashing dramatic steep power.
AEROBOX Frame – A combination of faster swing speeds and a solid feel
Isometric – Increases the size of your sweet spot
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.
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
Volume Cut – A powerful lightweight adhesive, for enhanced counterweight balance across the grip end, joint and frame top.
Rexis Shaft: Rexis is a high-performance shaft precisely designed through an advanced moulding technique with high-quality performance graphite.
