ASTROX 88S (SKILL) & ASTROX 88D (DOMINATE)
Estimated released on mid March 2018
Yonex made more official even in the western market:
The official Astrox-Site: http://www.yonex.com/badminton/ASTROX/#Lineup
Guess people were right in saying Astrox will eventually replace Voltric to be the Power range
Here's the latest racquet matrix by Yonex Japan:
Note: this matrix does not include all models but only models available for sale in Japan
This is usually an indicator for which racquets are next to be eventually phased out globally
Also before anyone asks, the LDF was never on the matrix as it was a limited production racquet
PS. I hope Yonex can stop relying on ARC11 and bring out a new Control series by the end of this year
Just keep producing the breadwinner (like what they've done with ZF2) and release a new series alongside it
They honestly deceived us into thinking the AX77 was going to be the new control range when they got LYD to endorse it
Oh but wait, AX88 was designed alongside LYD too
At this point I reckon it'll be better off if they just dedicated the Astrox series as Power/Control in the venn diagram but they didn't do that for the need of product range distinction and they wanted to retire the Voltric series
AX88D almost seems more like a singles racquet
So, many more Astrox on the way.Does anyone know what's the basic difference between single digit and double digit models?
Double digit = High end
Single = Mid end
Let's make another prediction : ASTROX Z-SMASH ? ASTROX Z-POWER ?
Thanks for the reply but this difference I know already
I meant the technological difference between them?
For example: NAMD only on double digit = High end rackets
They may not necessarily have technological diffences, more like they have different specifications. A high end racquet would usually have a stiffer shaft and could be made of stronger materials to withstand higher tensions.
Just click on my link which I posted on #2. It's the Astrox site. Just for you I navigated to the section. Just click:
When will this range be out? Can't wait to replace my Voltric Lin Dan Force..
March 2018. Let me know if you are letting go your LDF ( if it is in 4U/G5 specs)
I heard rumours Z force 2 , Purple blue is out soon .
Not letting my VT LDF go though .. 3UG5..
Mid of March 2018
Not a single racket. The spec clearly for Doubles pair.
Imagine Kevin SS with AX88S, Marcus GF with AX88D, LYD with AX88S.
88 will replace Arc11 soon. This time AX88 gonna kill the market.
Or Astrox E-tune
What i'm really curious about is if companies would be able to design a ZERO vibrations racket.
I don't think Arcsaber 11 will phase out same like Victor BS 12.
Brave sword 12 is still use by 2 ladies korea team.
a long time ago i had a NS7700 that had a Vibration Filter Cap, it was the weirdest experience it felt like hitting with bg65 mush when it was actually strung with bg80
That's nothing will stand forever.
Technology keeps going on.
No matter how good is it. It will replace by Astrox series for sure.
Yonex won't stop at Arcsaber 11.
