Yonex Astrox 77 Badminton Racket
The YONEX ASTROX 77 BADMINTON RACQUET is the perfect fit for intermediate and advanced badminton players who are looking to dominate the entire court with powerful, steep smashes.
This badminton racket is made with Yonex's revolutionary, new dimension graphite material, Namd, which increases the adhesion of the graphite fibres and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fibre. This world-first improvement results in a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.
The Astrox 77 also contains Nanometric, a new material which applies the NanoalloyTM technology of Toray Industries, Inc. to improve the strength of bonding between carbon fibres, thereby taking the racket shaft construction to a whole new level. This badminton racket is approximately 60% thinner than a conventional badminton racquet whilst retaining stiffness, thanks to the reduced amount of carbon in the shaft. This means that players get a lightweight racquet that still provides great head speed and control. The racket's Aero+Box frame combines a solid hitting feel and a quick swing.
The ISOMETRICTM design of the Astrox 77 increases the sweet spot by about 7%. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. It also delivers greater control without sacrificing power.
The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern. In addition, by applying the counterbalance theory, weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. This allows transition to the next shot to be performed smoothly and with rapid succession. The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact.
The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX, the Astrox 77 vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel. The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability. The lightweight T-Joint increases stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximizing power and control.
