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.
The Yonex Astrox 99 Tour is designed for the back court player, who is looking to dominate the court with an attacking game, whilst being a more affordable option compared to the 99 Pro version due to being made in Taiwan, rather than Japan.
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.
Please note, that no head cover is supplied with this racket.
Nanomesh Neo – Ensures a stronger more flexible frame, while increased shaft flex creates maximum 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.
Energy Boost Cap – The new shape allows the shaft to flex and stabilises the racket face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control.
Built-in T Joint – Increases strength between the frame and shaft eliminating head twist for more control.
Power-Assist Bumper – Attached to enforce heavier, increased power by configuring the weight directed into the shuttlecock with a tungsten-infused nylon bumper.
