  • Ultra PE Fiber: The shaft's construction with Ultra PEF (ultra polyethylene fiber) ensures it's light yet extraordinarily durable, offering unparalleled shock absorption.
  • Super Slim Shaft: As the slimmest racket ever produced by Yonex, it dramatically reduces air resistance while enhancing feel, allowing for more agile and precise swings.
  • Energy Boost Cap Plus: This innovative cap enhances shaft performance, with a design that allows flexion while stabilizing the racket face to prevent twisting.
  • Power Assist Bumper: Equipped with a tungsten-infused nylon bumper, this feature boosts power by optimizing weight distribution towards the shuttlecock for more forceful shots.


  • Balance: Head-Heavy, favoring players with an aggressive style seeking to maximize smash power.
  • Flex: Stiff, offering excellent control for fast, powerful swings.
  • Recommended Strings: For power and comfort, the Yonex Aerobite Hybrid (0.67/0.61mm); for control and durability, the Yonex BG65Ti (0.70mm).
