Endorsed by Kento Momota, the highly anticipated Astrox 99 Pro bring numerous improvements to enhance the racket advanced and intermediate players. Similar to other Astrox models, the 99 Pro features a stiff shaft and head heavy frame for explosive power. Yonex has introduced its latest Volume Cut Resin technology - an epoxy resin that has been used to construct the entire frame of the racket which offers excellent strength and light weight. This combines perfectly with the new slimmer and shorter shaft, allowing players to take advantage of the increased snapback when whipping smashes from the rear court.
Additionally, Yonex has increased the frame thickness at the top of the racket which works with the Power Assist Bumper to offer increased swing weight and power. Yonex have however, worked hard to ensure that all the extra head weight does not come at the expense of speed and have introduced an EXTRA SLIM SHAFT and fully recessed frame. Finally, Yonex have also refined the ISOMETRIC HEADSHAPE, for greater forgiveness and an optimised sweet-spot. This is combined with a new stringing pattern, borrowed from the Astrox 88S, that looks to offer more control and longer shuttle hold.
