    After several posts and long debates, i finally found what i have been looking for .. the Astrox 68S. :D

    But still those r specs on paper:confused:, how does it perform in real world scenario?. Im very very excited to find out how does it compare to its flashy brother AX 88S:cool:. Did yonex struck gold with this one or is it like a meh

    If anyone owns one or got a chance to try both, please feel free to share ur thoughts:)

    cant wait to hear u guys out!!!

    Are there any better options than AX 68S in that price point which feel similar to AX 88S?

    How much is your budget?. If you are able to afford the AX88 then go for it. One of the best racket so far

    well its not that much different in price (even tho it is double the price but it is not insanely pricey). Think about it like an investment for your health. To be able to play with a racket you have an eye for is a good pleasure. You might get the 68s today and in a few month you would still be curious about hows 88s perform and finally end up getting one.

    I am also curious about the 88s v 68s/38s.

    I have the 88s, but would like to get a 68s/38s to act as a standby/guest racket.

    I am using 88S and also considering a 68D as a backup racket. Any feedback?

    IMHO its better to get outside of these 3 famous brands (yy, ln, victor) for racket under 100usd.. For that budget, you can get high end racket with another brand outside that 3 brands

    Well, im not looking for new racket. Afterall i just bought my new one, but sometimes i just like to browse & look for other racket on my free time.

    On my search, i found
    Mizuno JPX Ltd
    Apacs Virtuoso Performance

    Idk anything about it but the spec is kinda simillar to AX68D, so maybe you can look for it to try.

    I have just purchased Astrox 38S, after few sessions of playing.. Well, I must say this is one of the best low end racket that I have ever use!

    Cosmetic and design wise, it is really pleasing. I can stare at this racket all day.
    Spec wise: great speed and swing in the air, perfect effortless defense, and decent smash power. Btw I am an intermediate level of player who always play doubles. If you think you need more weight in the head, go with 68S or even 68D for a lot more head weight.

    In conclusion, for that range of price, Astrox 38S won't disappoint you. I can guarantee that.

    I have the 38s and 68D,

    Aggreed with steven8991, of ax38s being one of the best low end racket.. Almost as reponsive as a nanoray series but with better smash power. Makes me want to get the 68s but I am not sure since I already own the 68D


    Still haven't yet tamed the 68D, Really packing smashing power but need more refine hand/technique in net play..

    glad you alse enjoy the 38S.

    agree with the net play on 68D, at first I struggle a little bit, but with more adaptation of the racket, now it becomes better and better in the net area.

    38S = decent smash power.
    68S = very good smash power.
    88S = excellent smash power.

    Thats what i can feel after trying them.
