This revolutionary racket, arriving in an eye-catching black and silver colourway, is engineered to redefine the game for defensive players who demand control and power above all.

The Astrox 88D Pro excels in backcourt play, offering robustness and stability that's unparalleled in the market. Designed to enhance your smashing power and dominate the court, this racket incorporates Stability Weight Distribution technology to ensure your shots remain controlled and precise, amplifying your power with every swing. Weighing in at a user-friendly 4U (approx. 83 grams), it provides a perfect balance between responsiveness and power, making it an ideal choice for the powerful player.

Featuring an array of advanced technologies, the Astrox 88D Pro stands as a testament to Yonex's commitment to innovation:

  • AERO+ Box Frame: Experience reduced wind resistance and increased racquet speed, thanks to smoother contours and the stability of a box frame design.
  • ISOMETRIC™: A Yonex signature for over 30 years, the ISOMETRIC design enlarges the sweet spot by 7%, creating a significant advantage over conventional round frames.
  • Rotational Generator System + 2G-Namd Flex Force: This cutting-edge combination distributes weight across the grip end, frame top, and joint for smooth, powerful transitions and rapid attacks.
  • Stability Weight Distribution: Enhanced frame stability maximizes smash power and efficiency, particularly during back-court assaults.
  • Ultra PE Fiber: The shaft's construction features ultra polyethylene fiber, known for its lightweight and high shock absorption properties, ensuring maximum durability and performance.
  • Ultra Slim Shaft: Incorporated NANOPREME technology offers unprecedented stability, with the shaft rebounding almost twice as far as conventional rackets under the same force.
  • Energy Boost CAP PLUS and Power Assister Bumper: These innovations maximize shaft performance and shuttlecock power transfer, providing a competitive edge that's hard to match.

Crafted with high modulus graphite, CFR, and tungsten in the head, and similarly high-quality materials in the shaft including 2G-NAMD and Ultra PE Fiber, this racket is the epitome of high performance and durability. With its stiff flex, head-heavy balance, and professional-grade construction, the Astrox 88D Pro is designed for the defensive player seeking to elevate their game to new heights.

Proudly originating from Japan, this high-tension racket is tailored for those who play to win. Whether you're looking to break down your opponent's defense with powerful back-court attacks or seeking a racket that combines power with precision, the Yonex Astrox 88D Pro 3rd Generation is your ultimate ally on the court.
