Introducing the Yonex Nanoflare 1000Z, an unprecedented marvel of badminton technology designed for players who demand absolute control, power, and speed in their game.
- Weight: 4U(80-84g)
- Grip Size : G5
- Shaft : Extra Stiff
At the heart of this revolutionary racket lies the NANOMETRIC DR technology. Originating from the world of next-gen space aviation and for the first time ever used in the racquet industry, this unique carbon material creates a perfect balance between firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, putting the Nanoflare 1000Z in a league of its own.
The AERO Frame design of the Nanoflare 1000Z maximizes your swing speed by reducing wind resistance. Coupled with the Compact Frame, this racquet reduces the drag and air resistance, giving the racket a fast swing, a sought-after feature by advanced players.
Our patented ISOMETRIC design significantly enlarges the sweet spot by 7%*, allowing for greater control without sacrificing power. This square-shaped racquet creates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings, a testament to over 30 years of Yonex's innovation.
Nanoflare 1000Z also incorporates the M40X, a next-generation carbon fiber developed by Toray Industries, Inc., renowned for its strength and elasticity. And with the Solid Feel Core, which is integrated into all Japan-manufactured racquets, it reduces harmful miscellaneous vibration upon impact, providing a solid and comfortable feel.
Enter the Sonic Flare System for maximum acceleration. The synergy of the TORAYCAR M40X and SUPER HMG graphite material delivers unrivaled power and stability to fuel the shuttle's speed like never before.
The Ultra PE Fiber construction on the shaft offers maximum shock absorption. Light enough to float on water yet robust enough to withstand intense forces, it ensures an impressively responsive performance.
Energy Boost CA promises increased control. It enables the shaft to flex, ensuring the maximum effect of "Namd" and stabilizing the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting.
Finally, the SPEED-ASSIST BUMPER, an innovative connected grommet with a highly rigid material, is added to the lower part of the frame. This design reduces frame warp and improves repulsion performance, making your every swing count.
In essence, the Yonex Nanoflare 1000Z badminton racket is the epitome of badminton technology mastery, offering players the edge they need to dominate the court. Revolutionize your game today with the Nanoflare 1000Z.
