The Yonex Nanoflare 1000 Z is a professional badminton racket designed for advanced players looking for additional shot and swing speed with agile maneuverability. The Nanoflare 1000 Z’s new Wide Profile Frame paired with the Sonic Flare System generates high repulsion on impact while reducing air resistance.
The Nanoflare 1000 Z is designed with the motif of a column of light, expressing the speed and power of a launched shuttle. It is also designed by combining the Wide Profile Frame with an aero shape and compact frame to create the Aero Compact Frame. This new frame improves repulsion even further.
The Nanoflare 1000 Z implements high-modulus graphite materials on the top and bottom of the frame, along with a Speed-Assist Bumper at the base of the frame. This reduces frame warp and improves overall repulsion performance.

1. NANOMETRIC DR
NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon material developed by Yonex based on our unique NANOSCIENCE technology. Created from a material originally developed for next-generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racquet industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.
2. Aero Frame
Smoother contours throughout the racquet head for less wind resistance and extra racquet speed.
3. Compact Frame
To balance the heavy racquet head, the frame has been made smaller to maintain the fast swing demanded by advanced players. The head-heavy feeling is reduced by reducing the drag caused by air resistance, and the racquet handling speed is increased.
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
A next-generation, highly strong, yet elastic carbon fiber developed by Toray Industries, Inc.
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. Sonic Flare System
The revolutionary new graphite material TORAYCAR M40X and SUPER HMG provide unrivaled power and stability for maximum shuttle acceleration.
8. Ultra PE Fiber
The shaft is constructed using ‘Ultra PEF’ – ultra poly ethylene fiber – which is light enough to float on water yet able to withstand immense forces. These characteristics allow for maximum shock absorption.
9. Super Slim Shaft
The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
10. Energy Boost CAP
The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd (more flex and faster kick-back graphite material)” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting, increasing control.
11. New Built-in T-Joint
The lightweight T-Joint increases the stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximizing power and control.
Provides sharper power for all your shots.
13. SPEED- ASSIST BUMPER
The SPEED-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet containing highly rigid material resistant to warping. They are attached to the lower part of the frame to reduce frame warp and improve repulsion performance.
