  • Weight : 4U ( 85– 89g)

Yonex Astrox 88s Badminton Racket with a head heavy balance and a 5mm shorter stiff shaft is designed for the skillful all-round player who loves to attack the front. 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. The Astrox 88S also introduces Yonex’s next generation material Namd in its shaft, allowing it to quickly flex and return to normal which translates to faster smash speeds.

The AX88S has one important difference compared to the AX88D ; a 5mm shorter shaft.The shorter shaft provides an excellent balance between reduced air resistance (found in classic, regular length rackets) and extra power (found in longer length rackets), making it a perfect racket for players who love to consistently attack and follow through quickly at the front court.

Additionally, the Astrox 88s is designed with Yonex’s latest Energy Boost Cap technology which increases energy transfer from player to the racket by flexing the shaft in a single direction. By reducing unnecessary shaft twisting this racket allows energy to be maximized and utilized for maximum power. This works perfectly together with the Namd material found in the shaft that allows extra flex and snapback for players, providing explosive power and perfect control. Finally, the point of flex on the Yonex Astrox 88S is at the mid-point of the frame which allows only the upper half to flex. This allows you to accumulate energy and momentum before releasing relentless power that helps you break down your opponent’s defence every time.

Our View is that the Yonex Astrox 88s badminton racket is the right choice if you like to attack the front-court with fast interceptions and sharp net play.  Yonex has combined a head heavy balance and shorter shaft to allow you to have lighting fast reflexes at the front while still retaining explosive power.

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 resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.

Super Slim Long Shaft The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
