It is in the 2020 catalog.
How come he compare a strung frame with another one without string?! Any frame will squeeze/deform after stringing...
Interesting that someone could not find the chart properly.
In fact there are several versions of crap. Holy crap.
When I first saw the title...
"UNBOXING MY NEW FAVORITE YONEX RACKET - ASTROX 100ZZ",
...........this meme came to my mind, straightaway.
If anyone knows Korean language, please translate what he said in comparison with DUO Z Strike and AX 99( after 6/7 min inbthe video)
Easier to play than both, or basically any other z series rackets, especially for drives. Was surprised, since most z series are known to be difficult to wield
Any mention of head weight and the shaft flex? I'm curious where it lies between Duora Z strike and something like AX99/ZF2 for instance.
LOL the Duora Z-Strike ship is sinking fast TROLOLOLOLOLOL
Another friendship ENDED!!!!!
He doesn't say anything that explicit, but you can piece together some stuff based on what he said, which is translated loosely below in non chronological order
"It's a lot easier to play than other Z series like duora zs or vzf2. My favorite astrox was 99, favorite z series was duora ZS, I wanted to try to main both rackets but the better part of me stopped me from doing so due to the difficulty. But this astrox 100zz is completely different from previous Z series rackets, it was so very easy to use. And even when I asked other female players about this racket, they said they didn't feel it was hard to use at all. You can tell Yonex is having a change of heart when it comes to setting a different difficulty of use with their Z series rackets, as even singles rallies are starting to have more drive based plays. 4U was comfortable enough for me to consider maining, but 3U made me feel that it's difficult enough that I shouldn't try to main it."
FYI some of his favorite rackets are Fleet Woven Mach 6000s 5U, Jetspeed 10 &12, NF 700 5U, nanospeed 7000 8000 9900, Duora 7, Nanoray 800, 900. So he doesn't mind very stiff rackets, but he does prefer his racket or racket head to be lighter balanced. Among popular rackets he didn't like, there are Astrox 88s 88d, Auraspeed 90s. He finds Arcsaber 11 not that hard to play, but slightly too head heavy for him.
As if pros would receive only one racquet and play straight away AE with it... I’m sure they train with 100ZZ for weeks if not months
From other korean review sites, they said despite being rated stiffer than Astrox 99, the head feels lighter than the 99 so it was easier to control and do rapid strokes. For a head heavy racket, it feels pretty maneuverable. Some others are saying it's stiff, but not so stiff that it's hard to play with coming from a Nanoray 800.
Thank you for translating the main points! So other than his preference for light or head light rackets he does think it's a more accessible Z series racket which is interesting.
In Canada the pre-order is 289$ CAD
I guess good luck to anyone who has not so deep pockets

Pre-orders are usually MSRP traps for those who really want it badly aren't they?

does anyone here have an idea what is 100ZZ/ZX balance point in terms of mm?
Theres some 100ZZ review video that was shared in this forum, and in that video it was 302-303mm for ZZ/ZX, CMIIW
Just tried ZZ & ZX during Yonex demo road show both are very heavy head type. I only manage to try 4U version..but wow.. it feels like 3U to me. Clears to the back is very easy,smash could be good due to HH nature but I'm nt that used to it so i missed all my smashes timing. Coming from N9ii..this racket do feels heavier than lining's.

could be what im looking for... ^^ heavy heavy heavy, power power power...
Now just need to concern about stiffness
Will wait till it show up in the store....
Now heres another twist
Many review said it was quite light and easy to use, not as head heavy as 99, around 88d
And someone using N9II having a struggle using 4U 100ZZ for a while
Do you really sure its because of the weight?Or maybe because the stiffness?
How about defense with 4U 100ZZ?
I consider to buy the 3U but hearing you i might change my mind
My opinion and advice is buy 4U and err on the side of caution if you really can't decide at the end of it all. A 4U is generally easier rto move than. 3U especially for a racket in a head heavy line.
