Introducing the Yonex Astrox 88S Tour, the ultimate badminton racket for players who dominate the front court with speed and precision. This cutting-edge racket, designed in a sleek silver and black color scheme, is the perfect choice for those seeking to enhance their game with explosive power and unmatched maneuverability. The Astrox 88S Tour is built to leave your opponents scrambling, offering a combination of features that cater to an aggressive, fast-paced playing style.

Key Features:

  • Aero+ Box Frame: This innovative frame design combines the solid hitting feel of a box frame with the quick swing benefits of Aero+ technology, allowing for rapid responses and powerful shots.
  • Isometric Design: With over 30 years of development, the Isometric design enlarges the sweet spot by 7% over traditional round frames. This optimization increases precision by evenly distributing the tension across the strings.
  • Rotational Generator System: Implementing counterbalance theory, this system distributes weight across the racket for smooth transitions and rapid, successive attacks, enhancing your agility on the court.
  • Expanded Sweet Spot for Control: The racket's 5mm longer length not only improves maneuverability but also expands the sweet spot. This design tweak supports fast rallies and precision in front court attacks.
  • Ultra PE Fiber Shaft: Constructed with ultra polyethylene fiber, the shaft is incredibly lightweight and strong, offering exceptional shock absorption and durability.
  • Super Slim Shaft: As the slimmest racket ever crafted by Yonex, it dramatically cuts down air resistance, providing a superior feel and control.
  • Energy Boost Cap Plus: This cap is designed to maximize shaft performance by allowing it to flex and then quickly snap back. The sides’ arch-shaped curve also prevents the shaft from twisting, stabilizing the racket face upon impact.
  • Power Assist Bumper: A tungsten-infused nylon bumper enhances power by optimizing the weight distribution towards the shuttlecock, delivering more forceful smashes.


  • Weight: 4U (80-84g unstrung), making it an ultra-lightweight option for those who prioritize speed and agility.
  • Balance: Head-Heavy, to aid in delivering powerful smashes and deep clears from the front court.
  • Flex: Stiff, offering precise control for aggressive shots.
  • Recommended Strings: Yonex Aerobite Hybrid (0.67/0.61mm) for power and comfort, Yonex BG65Ti (0.70mm) for control and durability.
  • Stringing Tension Range: 20-28 lbs, accommodating a wide range of playing styles.
  • Racket Cover: Not included, underscoring the racket's focus on performance and advanced technology.

The Yonex Astrox 88S Tour is unstrung, allowing players to customize their setup to perfectly match their playing style. Whether you're pushing the pace at the front of the court or delivering decisive smashes, the Astrox 88S Tour is your ally in achieving badminton excellence.
