Part of the Yonex Astrox family. The Yonex ASTROX 100 ZX Dark Navy 3U4 badminton racket is a popular choice for the advance badminton players of all levels. A very good choice for players looking to improve on their shuttle control ability. ASTROX 100 ZX Dark Navy 3U4 badminton racket provides good swing speed and powerful smashes. The isometric head is slightly different to the rest of the range allowing a 3% larger sweet spot. It is very popular and suited to doubles players. The shaft of this racket is medium flex. Racket’s head heavy balance and isometric head help generate power whilst increased shaft flexibility offers great manoeuvrability.
Some of the key technologies used in the Yonex Astrox range are:-
This is the shape of the head of the frame. The slightly square headed shape is a unique design. Yonex has designed this to help keep the vertical strings at a similar length of the horizontal strings. As a result this 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 make the racket a lot more forgiving.
ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed by Yonex from over 30 years back. The ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. When compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a much larger sweet spot. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.*Tested by Yonex
Energy Boost Cap PLUS in ASTROX 100 ZX Dark Navy 3U4
Yonex created this rather uniquely shaped cap. It helps maximizes the racket shaft performance. The front allows the shaft to flex, while the sides arch-shaped curve stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting. The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest manoeuvrability.
Rotational Generator System in ASTROX 100 ZX Dark Navy 3U4
The Yonex Astrox range benefits from this unique Counterbalanced Weight Distribution. Yonex have achieved this by applying the counterbalance theory. The way this is achieved is by having the frame weight distributed throughout the grip end and frame top and the joint of the frame. As a result it provides players maximum control in their respective shots. Players will be able to transition to the next shot more smoothly, with quick succession.
Aerodynamic contouring of the top of the frame helps minimizes air resistance. As a result the air flows faster across the curved surface during the swing. The accelerating head speed and transferring more speed and power into hits. This construction tapers into the YONEX Box Shape midway through the frame for high stability, low-torque performance and more accuracy.
Extra slim Shaft
Thinnest, Strongest Ever Produced by Yonex
Yonex's Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology. Used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft. Created for a stronger and more intense shot. As a result players will find it very comfortable to swing the racket without sacrificing power.
A world-first, new dimension graphite material. Using Namd, greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin. This is done by attaching the nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber. In high performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers However in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased. As a result this major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.
On testing the ASTROX 100 ZX Dark Navy 3U4 we found it to be very effective for the fast paced mid court exchanges by our double players. The players felt that this ease of use was due to the amazing extra slim shaft, which allowed fast swing through the air without compromising control. This frame benefits from the Counterbalanced Weight Distribution. As a result it gave the players that extra stability when producing shots. The head heavy balance also help create steady smashes. The Head heavy balance really aided in fast swing and power. The racket has a medium flex shaft which is suited to a defensive style of players.
Please note this ASTROX 2 comes with a full-length cover.
