CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY FOR DOUBLES PLAYERS

D = Domination for the 'Rear Court' minded player.

S = Domination for the 'Front Court' minded player.


Central Sports is proud to announce the launch of two new Yonex badminton racquets. Uniquely designed for the doubles specialist, the “ASTROX 88 S” is targeted at enhancing the “SKILL” of the front court player while the “ASTROX 88 D” is aimed at allowing the back court player to “DOMINATE” the opposition.

The key role of a doubles player’s positioning is different: back court players create chances by breaking through the opponents while the front court players require a decisive attack to win points by seizing opportunities. Yonex has focused on these specific roles within the doubles discipline and developed the “ASTROX 88”racquets to enhance the performance required in both positions.

New Frame Design and Racquet Length

Making the whole frame flexible allows the“ASTROX 88 S”to hold the shuttlecock for accurate control, while the“ASTROX 88 D” has more flex in the upper part of the frame transmitting maximum power to the shuttlecock to break through the opponents. In addition the overall length of the“88 S” is only 5mm longer, which enhances both accuracy and power while the“88 D” is 10 mm longer to provide powerful attacks.

New Cap Design “Energy Boost Cap”: Maximizes shaft performance

The new shape allows the shaft to flex, which ensures the maximum effect of “Namd1” and stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting, increasing control.

Endorsed by a respected double specialist, Lee Yong Dae

Legendary Korean doubles player Lee Yong Dae, the Beijing Olympic Gold Medalist and former BWF World #1, tested the racquet several times during its development and gave the following feedback: “I’m really impressed that Yonex managed to improve the performance every time I tested these unique racquets. The “ASTROX 88 S and 88 D” have become racquets that maximize the performance of both the front and back court doubles player positions.”

The “88 S and 88 D” also feature the Rotational Generator System technology that is unique to the ASTROX series and is already performing for the world’s best. By precisely distributing the weight throughout the entire racquet it prevents a loss of follow-through power and allows quick fire attacks by creating a smooth transition into the next shot.
