OVERALL RATING = 8.2/10


WHAT WE SAY AS TESTED BY OUR OWN FULLY QUALIFIED BADMINTON COACHING STAFF:

The much anticipated Astrox 99 is here, with a very stiff flex and a head heavy balance this racket immediately feels like a very suitable replacement for the popular Voltric Z-Force II. After a thorough play-test, we very much enjoyed the high quality feel and performance of the 99. Huge power is generated from the rear-court with increased angles quite noticeable compared to its competitors - making the racket just as suitable for doubles as it is for the modern singles game. The striking graphics and flame theme finish the racket beautifully. We feel the Astrox 99 best suits hard hitting offensive players with this current 4U version still offering reasonable manoeuvrability. The heavier 3U version is now instock exciting those players wanting an even heavier smash…

POSITIVE: Best in class for power and angles.

NEGATIVE: It’s not cheap!


NOW AVAILABLE IN TWO WEIGHTS: 4U - G4 = 83grms
3U - G3 = 88grms

The most eagerly awaited Racket yet produced by Yonex, the Astrox 99 has set new levels in performance and technology.

Already used by some of the Worlds Elite including the Legend that is Lee Chong Wei it provides dynamic power of epic proportions and yet still provides maximum shuttle control.

“This racquet has more feel than any racquet I’ve ever used,” Momota said of the ASTROX 99. “Because it fits my play style so well, I have very high expectations for it. I’m hoping for victory at the World Championships with the ASTROX 99.”

Steep Attack

Overwhelm the opposition with the fast and powerful ASTROX. For players who demand a steep angled and devastating smash, taking the point to their opponent.


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.
