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 99 is the only frame that has ‘Namd’ graphite throughout the whole frame, doubling the contact time with the shuttle. As a result, this helps generate you more power as the racket returns from flexed to straight at the end of your swing. As is with all Yonex rackets, this features their famous Isometric head shape which will increase the sweet spot on the racket. Therefore, even if you are hitting slightly off centre, you will find it a lot more forgiving compared to a conventional head shape. In addition, a stiffer shaft on the Astrox 99 will allow to control where you want to the shuttle to go, but your timing will need to be better to do this and a super slim long shaft increases the feel from the racket.
The Astrox is an attack-orientated model which can take the lead in a high-speed game with a design that can deliver powerful, steep smashes, allowing you to dominate the court.
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.
New Full Frame Namd: The Astrox 99 has adopted Namd in the entire body of the racket, including the frame, doubling contact time with the shuttle. This results in an explosive shot as the racket returns from flexed to straight at the end of the swing.
Energy Boost Cap – The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of Namd (more flex and faster kick-back graphite material) and stabilizes the racket face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control
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
New Built-in-T-Joint – The lightweight T-Joint increases stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximising power and control
Nanometric – Tightly bonded fibres enhance the rackets strength and minimise twisting during impact. Nanometric is a material which applies the Nanoalloy technology of Toray Industries Inc
Super Slim Long Shaft: The slimmest racket ever produced by Yonex, vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
