The ZX model in the new "100" line up from Yonex is an improvement on the already brilliant lineup of Astrox rackets. In our playtests, it suited players of all abilities, with out and out doubles players slightly preferring the ZX over the ZZ model.
This racket is ideal for badminton players who are looking to improve their control whilst being able to reach great power in their shots. The ultimate control racket with plenty of power ? We think so.
Rotational Generator System - by applying the counterbalance theory, weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. The transition to the next shot can be performed smoothly, with rapid succession
namd - utilising high quality namd graphite throughout the frame produces more flex with a faster snapback, unleashing dramatic steep power
Energy Boost Cap/Plus - uniquely shaped cap which maximises shaft performance. The front allows the shaft to flex, while the sides arch-shaped curve stabilises the racket face by preventing the shaft from twisting
Isometric - increases the size of your sweet spot
New Grommet Pattern - single pass grommet holes for reduced string stress, maximising performance
Solid Feel Core - reduces vibrations travelling down the shaft for improved comfort
AEROBOX Frame - a combination of faster swing speeds and a solid feel
Extra Slim Shafts - designed to slice through the air, generating speedy power
Bult In T-Joint - increases strength between the frame and the shaft eliminating head twist for more control
The new YONEX ASTROX 100 ZX DARK / NAVY 3U4 badminton racket is designed with a thinner handle and an advanced rotation generator system, this new badminton racket was created for confirmed offensive players.
By developing racket technologies in the distribution of weight, the handle, the shape of the frame, the ASTROX 100 provides access to a power that controls rapid changes in rhythm in the game.
The already thin shaft was modified using high quality graphite material, creating the thinnest shaft to date at Yonex. It offers smoother tracking by reducing air resistance and generates rotational power through more flex and faster snapback.
The original ISOMETRIC frame has also evolved into a more ISOMETRIC form, widening the sweet spot. Designed to reduce power loss in off-center shots, the 2.9% wider ideal point increases power.
The YONEX ASTROX 100 ZX uses the Rotational generator system, the counterweight theory to harmoniously distribute the loads on the racket. By distributing these weights between the top of the racket head, the T-joint + the shaft, and on the bottom of the handle, the slightly top weight of the Astrox 100 is as discreet in play as it is effective in attack, for a new vision of versatility which allows an improved angle of attack as well as more plunging angles of attack and increased acceleration.
