Worldwide Release: September 15
Introducing the new racket series by YONEX! The Astrox 77 badminton racquet is set for its worldwide release on September 15th.
・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)
Designed for intermediate to advanced players, Yonex adopts the new dimension graphite material 'Namd' making an improvement by enabling more powerful shots. This design allocates weight to the upper part of the frame, the joint part, and the end of the grip, resulting in less momentum lost and preparation for the next shot is rapidly made.

Introducing the new ASTROX 77 racquet 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.
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 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.
NEW Control Support Cap
YONEX has designed a new octahedron shaped control support cap that reduces air resistance whilst encouraging nimble handling.
