The Astrox range are Yonex’s most attack orientated rackets and are known as ‘counterbalance’ frames. This means they will offer a more precise weight distribution throughout the grip end, frame top and joint, therefore, increasing the rotational power the racket provides.
An all new and improved Astrox 99 where decisive power is accompanied by extended shuttle hold for enhanced defensive shot-making. The Astrox 99 Pro is a head-heavy power racket, boasting the heaviest swing weight in the Astrox series. It’s known to generate a single, powerful smash, often too heavy to recover from.
It is equipped with the Power-Assist Bumper, a tungsten-infused weighted bumper installed at the top of the frame transferring additional weight to the shuttle for more powerful smashes. To enhance defensive shot-making, Wide Diameter Grommets are strategically placed on the frame sides, allowing strings to shift at impact for emphasised shuttle pocketing. The iconic Isometric frame has been modified by strengthening frame corners to adjust the shape and expand the sweet spot.
By employing the Volume Cut Resin and Power-Assist Bumper, the new ASTROX 99 models have a further refined Rotational Generator System, where intricate weight distribution can be taken to the next level.
Please note, that unless a string is selected, this racket will be sent frame only. 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.
Solid Feel Core – Reduces vibrations travelling down the shaft for improved comfort.
Super Slim Long Shaft – The slimmest racket ever produced by Yonex, vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
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.
New Built-in-T-Joint – The lightweight T-Joint increases stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximising power and control.
Power-Assist Bumper – Attached to enforce heavier, increased power by configuring the weight directed into the shuttlecock with a tungsten-infused nylon bumper.
