The Nanoray GlanZ badminton racket is a new luxury concept for Yonex’s core of high-performance racquets due to its large head and flexible shaft which give the racquet an increased sweet spot. Suitable for beginners through to advanced players; this racquet is built for those that need extra strength to hit those long drives. In particular the racquet was designed to add extra power to backhand strokes and smashes.
Infused with the new REXIL FIBER material and built based on the Torque Power Theory, the GlanZ sends the shuttlecock even further.

Extra Slim Shaft
EXTRA SLIM SHAFT - THE THINNEST STRONGEST EVER PRODUCED BY YONEX
Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.
An original high quality material, developed by YONEX to exceed the repulsion and shock absorption performances of normal materials.
NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres 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 whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

The new generation X-Fullerene has 4 radial ribs which unite carbon atoms to form a football-like structure. The X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the carbon fibres and creates the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create 5% higher repulsion power and 15% greater stability.
The unique grommet pattern allows strings to run vertically through to the string bed, adding more flex and creating a wider, enlarged sweet spot.
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.
NEW Grommet Pattern
The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
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.
Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.
NEW Built-in T-Joint
‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
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.
