it's White Tiger Power!!!! - Not quite the White Tiger power ranger of might morphin fame, but maybe it channels the power of the mighty White tigerzord!
The popular ASTROX 99 series known for generating dominating smash power, is coming out with new technology and a new look ― in collaboration with men's singles World No 1. Kento Momota. The new ASTROX 99 Pro goes a step beyond unequivocal raw power, gaining the ability to control the pace of the game.
The ASTROX 99 Pro is a head-heavy power racket, boasting the heaviest swing weight of the ASTROX series. It is known to generate a single, powerful smash, often too heavy to be speedy in recovery. In response, Yonex worked hand in hand with Kento Momota to craft a racket that would give him both power and the ability to convert defensive plays into offense; the result is an improved ASTROX 99 Pro where decisive power is accompanied by extended shuttle hold for enhanced defensive shot-making.
The new ASTROX 99 Pro is equipped with the POWER-ASSIST BUMPER, a tungsten-infused weighted bumper installed at the top of the frame transferring additional weight to the shuttle for more powerful smashes. To enhance defensive shot-making, Wide Diameter Grommets are strategically placed on the frame sides, allowing strings to shift at impact for emphasized shuttle pocketing. The iconic ISOMETRIC frame has been modified by strengthening frame corners to adjust the shape and expand the sweet spot.
Intricate weight distribution technology designed with the counterbalance theory that allows head-heavy rackets to recover faster between shots. By employing the VOLUME CUT RESIN and POWER-ASSIST BUMPER, the new ASTROX 99 Pro have a further refined Rotational Generator System where intricate weight distribution can be taken to the next level.
Control the shuttle-release timing with larger grommets designed for more string movement, extending the shuttle contact time.
The iconic ISOMETRIC head shape is enhanced for a larger, more forgiving sweet spot. Frame sides are strategically reinforced with wider areas for a stronger construct.
