Yonex Astrox 100 ZZ

by BWT Admin

The Yonex Astrox 100 ZZ is a racquet for advanced players looking for immediate access to power to maintain a relentless attack. Viktor Axelsen (Denmark) and Akane Yamaguchi (Japan) are the world’s top players using this flagship racquet.

By developing racquet technologies in weight distribution, shaft, frame shape, and cap, the Astrox 100 ZZ enables access to power that controls the quick changes of pace in the game.

The innovative Rotational Generator System, introduced through the Astrox series earlier, has been further enhanced for the Astrox 100 ZZ. More precise weight distribution throughout the grip end, frame top, and the joint increases the rotational power.

These enhancements ensure the momentum for quicker consecutive shots. Namd, which produces more flex and a faster snapback, is used throughout the frame and shaft, unleashing steep dramatic power. The synergy created by the Rotational Generator System enables continuous powerful attacks.

The slim shaft has been modified utilizing a high-quality graphite material, creating the slimmest shaft to date in Yonex. It provides a smoother follow-through by reducing air resistance and generates rotational power through more flex and a faster snapback.

The original Isometric frame has also evolved into a more Isometric shape, expanding the sweet spot. Designed for reduced power loss from off-center shots, the 2.9% larger sweet spot increases power.

Features

1. Namd

A world-first, new dimension graphite material, Namd, greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber. In high-performance racquets, combining nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers is common. Still, in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers, and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.

2. Nanometric

Nanometric improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibers enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level.

By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet while retaining the stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.

3. Aero+Box Frame

Combines a solid hitting feel and quick swing.

4. Isometric

Isometric technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success.

Developed over 30 years ago, the Isometric design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped Isometric racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings.

Isometric delivers greater control without sacrificing power. Isometric is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.

5. 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 and rapidly.

6. Solid Feel Core

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.

7. Hyper Slim Shaft

Designed to slice through the air, generating speedy power.

8. Energy Boost Cap Plus

A uniquely shaped cap that maximizes shaft performance. The front allows the shaft to flex, while the side arch-shaped curve stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting.

9. Black Micro Core

Used for the first time in Yonex badminton racquets, BLACK MICRO CORE is a stiff, high-density vibration-dampening material equipped into the upper part of the VOLTRIC FB frame letting players hit with solid feeling and power.

10. New Built-in T-Joint

The lightweight T-Joint increases the stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximizing power and control.
