The world of badminton is vast and ever-evolving, with players constantly on the lookout for equipment that can enhance their gameplay. Among the plethora of rackets available, the Yonex Astrox 88D Game stands out as a remarkable choice for both beginners and professionals. Let's delve deep into the features and benefits of this exceptional racket.

A Glimpse into the Yonex Astrox Series

The Yonex Astrox series is renowned for its advanced technology and design, tailored to meet the demands of modern badminton players. The 88D Game, in particular, is a testament to Yonex's commitment to providing top-notch equipment for players at all levels.

Why the Yonex Astrox 88D Game is a Game-Changer

Power-Packed Performance

Designed with power at its core, the 88D Game is ideal for doubles players who aim to dominate rallies from the rear court. Its unique construction allows players to deliver devastating smashes, putting opponents on the defensive.

User-Friendly Design

While the 88D Game draws inspiration from its elder sibling, the 88D Pro, it is crafted to be more user-friendly. This makes it a perfect fit for club players, ensuring they can harness the racket's capabilities without any compromise.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Yonex has incorporated its latest technologies into the 88D Game. One such innovation is the VOLUME CUT RESIN, which enhances the racket's durability and weight without sacrificing strength. This technology also improves the frame and grommet structure, resulting in a larger sweet spot and increased shuttle hold for precise shot-making.

Key Features of the Yonex Astrox 88D Game

  • Rotational Generator System: This system ensures optimal weight distribution throughout the racket, allowing for swift transitions between shots.

  • Isometric Head Shape: The unique head shape offers a larger sweet spot, ensuring consistent performance even on off-center hits.

  • Volume Cut Resin: This technology strengthens the racket without adding unnecessary weight, ensuring a balanced feel during play.

  • Developed by Yonex Japan: The 88D Game is a product of Yonex's advanced research and development, ensuring quality and performance.


Nanomesh Neo - Ensures a stronger more flexible frame, while increased shaft flex creates maximum power.

Aero+Box Frame - Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.

Isometric - ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRICTM delivers greater control without sacrificing power. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.

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 rapid succession.

Energy Boost Cap - The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd[1](more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control
