    Default The inside of Yonex rackets

    I promised in another thread that I'd post pictures of cut open rackets to show the difference between Yonex rackets, other brands' rackets and fake rackets. I could take some pictures on the fly this week, which means that I couldn't take pics of everything I wanted and that pic quality is going to be pretty bad like usual :P

    Enjoy!

    Would love to! Unfortunately, there was none of them to compare with Maybe they were too well made for Yonex to try to compare with them.

    The "Other brand" rackets are of course just 2 different brands that are being sold here, it doesn't mean that all competitors' rackets are made like that at all.

    I will try to cut the Victor rackets myself if I ever break one or find a broken one, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get any Li-Ning rackets.

    Someone else dissected an NS9900 a while back, and took a lot of very interesting pictures:

    (there's a thread relating to it here on BC somewhere...)

    some very good pictures in this link, thanks Sketchy.
    some say those foams inside the yonex frame has vibration dampening effect and that's why yonex racket always give you that unique feel but other brands tend to use hollow frame. Or this is just another great myth?

    wow!!!

    a thank and a like!!

    thanks for the all the work. pretty cool.

    Yonex has the patent on the t-joint. simple and straight forward as it is, other manufacturers are not supposed to copy it.

    I think the foam is the Solid Feel Core (SFC) technology in some Yonex rackets. The AT700 for example didn't have it yet but I read in the description that the current Made in Japan models all should have it. If I had some tools I could slice and dice that AT700 open even further .

    Thanks to Sketchy as well for digging this one up, is one of the threads I meant in another thread here that can be found on badmintoncn about the inners ...

    The shiny blue and neon yellow ones.

    Other brand was RSL.

    But like kwun says, these pics mainly show the t-joint, which other brands can't use because Yonex has a patent on it.

    I'm interested that Yonex haven't lied about someone of the materials in their rackets

    The other manufacturers use other means like woven carbon ti, cnt, etc to strengthen and provide torsion stiffness in the joint.. So i do not think the missing t joint is an issue with todays material advances.
