Introducing the new Astrox 88D racquet with Rotational Generator System. Lead the attack with increased power and control.

The Yonex Astrox 88D Badminton Racket has a counterbalanced head which adapts to each shot, helping you to control the drive and attack the opposition with increased acceleration, steeper angle, and power on the smash.

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.

In a world’s first, Yonex has utilized top-class Namd graphite, Firstly, creating the Astrox 88S badminton racquet. Astrox 88D uses a worlds-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, which greatly improves the adhesive degree of graphite fiber and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to graphite fiber.

From the initial movement of the player to the impact, the new dimension graphite is difficult to harden. And the shaft extends and accumulates energy due to the speed of the fast swing. Since follow-through of the swing is smaller after a direct impact with the shuttlecock, Secondly, the swing speed drops and the new dimension graphite regains hardness and strengthens the resilience of the shaft, allowing the energy to explode rapidly before returning to its original state.

“Namd” New Dimension Graphite: More powerful shots

In high-performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connect carbon fibers. But Namd, nanomaterials directly adhere to carbon fibers and the degree of adhesion between carbon fibers and the resin is greatly increased. This major improvement enables more powerful shots.



The ISOMETRIC frame square-shaped is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length to the horizontal strings. As a result of this, it helps in producing an expanded sweet spot in all directions. The cross strings of equal length help to create a larger sweet spot and combined makes the racket a lot more forgiving.
