Yonex Co., Ltd will release a new "Crystal Red" design of the Lin Dan series-exclusive VOLTRIC LD-FORCE in late May 2019 (CHN), featuring high-speed maneuverability and a heavy smash that can win points in a single shot.
The VOLTRIC LD-FORCE utilizes special graphite material NANOMETRIC DR*, featuring enhanced tenacity and resilience, throughout the frame, in addition to the main standout of the VOLTRIC series, the Tri-Voltage system that balances power and maneuverability, carrying momentum through your swing. And with Yonex’s smallest shaft, it is designed to greatly reduce air resistance.
This model is perfect for hard hitters, and enhances Lin Dan’s play style of capturing surprise points form opponents mid-rally. The new design is based on an image of a phoenix spreading its wings, and has received the personal stamp of approval from the legend, Lin Dan, himself. Lin Dan will begin using the new racquet from the Asian Badminton Championships (Wuhan, China), which will start on April 23.
Traditionally, extra weight at the top of the racquet frame has increased hitting power but reduced the speed of racquet handling. In contrast, a lighter top to the frame increases speed but causes a loss of hitting power.
For the first time, the new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and great handling. YONEX has developed a racquet which achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.
Voltric is Power: The stiff racquet structure at the top of the frame allows the head to bend in a very controlled way and hold shuttles on the string bed for longer. The thin frame sides then allow the frame to flex more and transfer more energy to the shuttle. This combination allows you to smash with instant power.
Voltric is Agility: In VOLTRIC, the weight is balanced on the top of the frame and at the joint area which allows good handling while also maintaining power. The thin sides of the frame and at the top of the head reduce air resistance and improve the handling even further. Players can now make a full swing even during short range rallies as VOLTRIC responds instantly to even subtle movements.
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.
LIGHT feel CARBON NEO
Combining gum particles with carbon fibre generates a light feel and flexibility at impact.
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.
VIBRATION FILTER CAP
New cap shape and material reduce vibration from the shaft. The V.F. Cap delivers clean shots and reduces unwanted vibrations with a soft feel.
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.
