Isometric technology maximises the vital sweet spot area and is a world-leading feature of Yonex rackets. The squareshaped head of the racket means that there are more strings crossing at right angles, resulting in a bigger sweet spot.
The racket also features Yonex’s new Energy Boost Cap, which provides a boost in energy transfer from the player to the racket by way of flexing the shaft in a single direction, reducing torsion of the shaft and energy loss. Combined with the new and innovative Namd graphite technology which produces extra flex and snap-back, this racket gives additional power without the loss of control.
The point of flex on the Yonex Astrox 88S is at the bottom of the frame, near the T-Joint, which enables the string-bed the ability to hold the shuttle for longer giving the player more acceleration and agility.
Please note, where applicable, we will relogo the strings on rackets which have been restrung.
|Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.|
|Some Yonex rackets include this world’s-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, which greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber.|
In high performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers, but in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.
|NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.|
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
|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 a rapid succession.|
|The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.|
|Created by YONEX in 1980, the ISOMETRIC head shape is a unique and evolutionary breakthrough technology in racquet design. In conventional racquets, the sweet spot is located where main strings and cross strings meet. The YONEX ISOMETRIC head shape allows us to increase the number of main and cross strings that meet in the centre of the racquet to produce a sweet spot which gives a 7% more effective hitting area for you to make match winning shots.|
|The new carbon material combination used in the primary composition creates a different ‘Flex point’ in each racquet.|
|From the initial movement of the player to the impact, the new dimension graphite is difficult to harden, and the shaft extends and accumulates energy due to the speed of the fast swing. Since the follow-through of the swing is smaller after direct impact with the shuttle, the swing speed drops and the new dimension graphite regains hardness and strengthens the resilience of the shaft, allowing the energy to explode rapidly before returning to its original state.|
