The Astrox 5FX badminton racket is developed in Japan and is made in Taiwan.This racket is made from light feel Carbon Neo, a material derived from gum particles and carbon fiber, and when combined, it generates a light feel and flexibility at impact. Hence, the high flexibility in the racket to deliver more power even for beginners, as it will have a kind of sling shot effect.
The powerful Astrox 5FX badminton racket drastically improves racket’s Rotational Power. For players who demand a steep angled and devastating smash, taking the point to their opponent.Yonex ASTROX FB racket is built using with Rotational Generator System. The counter balanced head adapts to each shot, helping you to control the drive and attack the opposition with increased acceleration, steeper angle and power on the smash.
This racket is also designed with Nanomesh Neo which is a material that promotes quicker shaft take-back to help you to lead the attack with increased power and control.
- Smash power up 7.1% (The difference between the initial speed and the final speed is minimized in order to be launched strongly)
- Smash angle is 2.3° steeper *Tested by Yonex (Measurements by swing robot)
Rotational Generator System
Weight Distribution – 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 a rapid succession.
Nanomesh Neo is a material that promotes quicker shaft take-back. It is an adhesive which helps combine the Graphite fiber with the resin for a stronger and more flexible frame. This allows for the shaft to flex more building up energy to transfer to the shuttle, on both smash and drive shots. Once the racket has made contact with the shuttle the NANOMESH NEO helps the frame to return to its original state in order for you to be able to play your next shot for that attaching edge.
LIGHT Feel CARBON NEO
Combining gum particles with carbon fibre generates a light feel and flexibility at impact.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.
Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX Built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
Control Support Cap
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
New Grommet Pattern
The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
