Maximises the skills of the front court player. A 5mm shorter shaft than the 88D, and whole frame flex holds the shuttlecock for pin point control and increased manoeuvrability around the net.

Two unique rackets, both with the new revolutionary graphite material in the shaft; Namd, Rotational Generator System weighting, new primary material for different flex points and new Energy Boost Cap for increased power.

ASTROX 88 S (Skill) – maximises the skills of the front court player. 5mm shorter and whole frame flex holds the shuttlecock for pin point control and increased manoeuvrability around the net.

Also check out the ASTROX 88 D (Dominate) – for the back-court player to dominate the point. Flex in the upper frame and a longer shaft length, transmit maximum power to the shuttlecock.

Two revolutionary rackets, designed to rule the doubles court…Doubles Redefined

NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racket whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racket with lightning head speed and control.

The ISOMETRIC™ equalises the length of the main and cross strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-centre hits.

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact.

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

ASTROX 88 uses a world’s-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, which greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibres and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fibre.

In high performance rackets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibres, but in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibres and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.

Making the whole frame flexible allows the“ASTROX 88 S”to hold the shuttlecock for accurate control, while the“ASTROX 88 D” has more flex in the upper part of the frame transmitting maximum power to the shuttlecock to break through the opponents. In addition the overall length of the“88 S” is only 5mm longer than the standard length, which enhances both accuracy and power while the“88 D” is 10 mm longer to provide powerful attacks.

    I play both singles and doubles and this racket is brilliant for both. It has a head heavy balance which helps me to hit powerful smashes, without being too heavy that it makes your arm ache. I chose this one over the Astrox 88D because it is slightly lighter and I could keep my racket up while moving round the court.
