Yonex Astrox 55 Badminton Racket is a combination of head-heavy balance, lightweight and medium flex shaft which is ideal for players looking to increase their power and smash speed. It consists of the Rotational Generator System found in all the Astrox series which distributes the weight throughout the racket for maximum control and smooth transitions between shots. Additionally, the Astrox 55 employs the next generation material Namd in its shaft, which allows it to quickly flex and return to normal, further increasing smash speeds. The smooth transitions between shots allow players to react faster to shots and sustain the momentum, providing an increased advantage during rallies as it is easier for players to hit powerful clears and smashes due to the medium flex shaft.

If you’re looking for a racket that offers the latest Namd graphite and Astrox technology while giving you a faster swing and extra power, then the Astrox 55 is the ideal racket for you.

Racket Technology

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 racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control

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 a rapid succession.

Nanometric TM 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.

Namd A world-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, 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

Isometric TM

The ISOMETRIC™ equalizes the length of the main and cross strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-centre hits.

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.

Built in T-Joint

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

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.
