    Ok, so likely a new tech VOLUME CUT RESIN, which allows larger diameter holes to be put in the frame, will be coming to 88 series.

    I hope the rated tensions will go up to 30 lbs this time, also a wider frame and more squarish design, might differ significantly from the xurrent ones

    I understand what the pro line is, but how would the game line be different from the originals?

    probably like old series.
    88/68/38.
    88 Pro as the high end series.
    88 Tour possibly around 100ZX price range as it had Namd to.
    88 Games are around 68 price range as it use Nanomesh.

    tho its personal taste, but i think the color is better than Astrox DG series. Those DG series color are very ugly.
    & if dont like it, you could just wait. Pretty sure Yonex would release new color.

    Talk about the new feature.

    What is Volume Cut Resin anyway?
    Less material, so it would weaken the structure which easier to break? But more durability, hhmm.... So far Yonex are known to had the lowest max tension, so would we can expect they will had higher max tension?
    Less weight, so it would be lighter overall?

    Refined RGS.... Typical of Yonex i guest.... The best marketing ever & nothing to be expected.

    New iso frame. So another new frame or a 100 frame? But from the picture, it seems the frame would be more thicker.

    yep for me as well the new pro versions look simply amazing, really the best designs lately of all brands, just there is no were to be found images of whole rackets - even on yonex site.

    Just hoping all 3 variant Pro, Tour, Games had different color or at least not 99% the same like their old series 88,68,38.
    Kinda anoying to own the same thing while its actually not the same.

    I'd like thin frame like the 88d original,
    and don't like when it's gonna be thicker (wide) like arc11.

    i feel not to confident when alternated ax88d, even with aero frame like tc75ex, it's just slightly thicker frame, especially when i look from side during service.

    Who knows a thicker frame might drastically improve the feel from it? My eyes are all on the 4U model
