New for 2021, Yonex continue to push boundaries with the revolutionary Astrox 88D Pro.
This racket has been designed specifically with the rear court doubles specialist in mind, injecting deadly pace and power into every shot.
The 88D Pro features a 10mm longer shaft for incredible power and angle from the rear court.
Another update from the previous 88D model is a fully recessed frame which means a more aerodynamic profile and quicker head speed.
Yonex have also lengthened the handle from the previous 88D, for greater handling and control when gripping higher up the racket.
The introduction of VOLUME CUT RESIN into the 88D Pro adds strength to the frame and a new stringing pattern creates a more compact and solid feel through the hit.
The ASTROX series are distinguished by the Rotational Generator System, our intricate weight distribution technology designed with the counterbalance theory that allows head-heavy racquets to recover faster between shots. By employing the VOLUME CUT RESIN, the new 88 S/D models have a further refined Rotational Generator System where intricate weight distribution can be taken to the next level.
Improvements*1 from the VOLUME CUT RESIN can also be seen in the frame and grommets. The frame structure is evolved with a larger sweet spot made possible by the strength-reinforced Isometric head shape. The grommets are improved with a new pattern that uses larger, strategically-placed grommets, a technology that allows more string movement at impact and ultimately increasing shuttle hold for assertive shot-making. The 88 S models, designed for front-court players, will have longer shuttle hold for precise net control and the 88 D models, designed for back-court players, will balance repulsion and shuttle hold for maximum power.
The ever popular ISOMETRIC frame has also been tweaked to create an EXPANDED SWEET SPOT - 2.9% larger than previous models. With attention paid to every detail, Yonex has even redsigned the cap at the top of the handle to reduce shaft twisting and increase flexibility. For those who like to place their thumb at the top of the grip whilst serving, the indent in the ENERGY BOOST CAP also provides a comfortable and stable place for the thumb to sit. By utilizing high quality Namd graphite throughout the shaft and frame, more flex is produced with a faster snapback, unleashing dramatic steep power. The material stays flexible even with increased swing speed, bending when swing speed increases and restoring its original hard shape at the end of the swing. The ability to bend even further and snap back rapidly, produces stronger shots and greater smash speeds.
