The Yonex Nanoflare badminton rackets are designed for pure speed and are based on the hugely popular Nanospeed series by Yonex. Unlike the Astrox series which features a head heavy balance for power, the Nanoflare features a head-light frame.
The head-light balance of the NANOFLARE series make it a perfect choice for developing players or double’s players that prefer faster swings. With the balance at the bottom of the racket you will find it much easier to intercept shots at the front-court as you are able to recover quicker. You will also find it much easier defensively to stay in control when facing a barrage of smashes.
Apart from its speed, the NANOFLARE series provides solid power for players with fully developed swings. The lighter balance provides you with more time to generate a bigger swing arc to unleash powerful smashes. Some of the world’s top players such as Mohammad Ahsan and Praveen Jorden are still able to unleash explosive smashes with head-light frames (Nanoflare 800).
Yonex has also introduced new technology such as the SONIC FLARE SYSTEM which positions high modulus graphite at the top and bottom of the frame. This greatly improves the stability of the frame and allows you to generate greater repulsion off your swings.
Another key introduction in the premium frames is the TORAYCA MX CARBON – which essentially helps to improve the tensile strength of the frame and provides you with a more solid feel.
NANOMETRIC - 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.
SOLID FEEL CORE - The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
CONTROL SUPPORT CAP - The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
So which racket in the Nanoflare series is perfect for you?
Developing players can consider the YONEX NANOFLARE 170 LIGHT which feature a superlight frame (5U) , making it very easy to use and allows new players to develop their technique. Intermediate players can consider the YONEX NANOFLARE 270 SPEED and YONEX NANOFLARE 370 SPEED. The 270 speed features a medium flex shaft making it easier to generate power while the 370 SPEED has a stiffer shaft for increased control.
Advanced players or if your wanting Japan made frames with the latest technology can consider the Yonex Nanoflare 700 and Yonex Nanoflare 800. Both rackets feature all the latest technologies and are used by the world’s best players such as Japan’s Arisa Higashino and many others.
If your wanting a more attacking racket that exudes power take a look at the Yonex Astrox series for head heavy frames.
