Astrox racquets are revered for power, but strength is required to unlock their full potential. Strength is easier to unlock when the shot feeling is comfortable and requires less strain.
The new Astrox Nextage is the key to unfiltered power with an addictive hitting feel. The racquet is designed for intermediate players looking for more power with a comfortable hitting feel while advancing their game to the next level.
The Yonex Astrox Nextage is designed with a newly innovated frame that absorbs impact, providing a revolutionary hitting feel with controlled shots.
In addition to the Rotational Generator System that enables quick recovery for a continuous stream of powerful attacks, the bottom of the newly innovated frame is lined with Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM). This absorbs impact, making the shot feel softer and resulting in less strain.
Wide-diameter grommets are also embedded on the sides to hold the shuttlecock at impact and allow the player more control over their attacks. Overall, the shape and flexibility of the frame are precisely developed to enhance the speed and power performance of the racquet.
The slim Aero Frame shape on top reduces air resistance, adding speed to each shot, and the flexibility of the frame sides results in energy transfer from the user into the shot, providing more power with ease. The overall frame construction creates the addictive feel of this racquet, enticing players to smash harder more frequently.
Astrox Nextage is designed in a muted colorway consisting of a black base with dark green accents, finished off with a matte finish, creating a luxurious and chic aesthetic.

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.
*Tested by Yonex
4. 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.
5. Super Slim Shaft
Yonex’s slimmest racquet ever produced vastly reduces air resistance while providing maximum feel.
6. 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.
7. Vibration Dampening Mesh
Vibration Dampening Mesh, VDM, is a stretchy mesh material rolled with carbon to reduce unwanted vibrations.
8. Built-in T-Joint
Increases strength between the frame and shaft, eliminating head twists for more control.
