The Racket for Skillful, Front-Court Players. Endorsed by Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo.
Designed for the skillful front-court player, Yonex Astrox 88S is the latest racket in the Yonex Astrox series.
Combining a head-heavy balance, 4U weight and stiff shaft, the Astrox 88S offers plenty of attacking power for players that love to strike the opponent with decisive attacks. Unique to the AX88S is a new innovation from Yonex; a new 5mm longer shaft.
The 5mm longer shaft offers an excellent balance between reduced air resistance (found in regular length rackets) and extra power (found in longer length rackets), making this racket perfect for players that love to attack from the front and the follow through quickly and easily.
Secondly, the Astrox 88 includes Yonex’s new E.B Cap, which boosts energy transfer from the player to the racket by flexing the shaft in a single direction, reducing shaft twisting and energy loss. This combines perfectly with the innovative Namd graphite which produces extra flex and snapback for players, giving you additional power with no loss of control.
Finally, the Astrox 88S flexes at the bottom of the frame near the T-Joint, allowing the stringbed to hold the shuttle longer, giving you the extra acceleration and agility you need to win the front-court battle.
