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.
