Aye aye sir!
another 2 days at least to play with this.. itchy
Seriously? I find VT80 faster than AT900P and AT800OF. AX88 faster than VT80?
Yep... but I'd think that (going from my distant experience with my old VT80) that the VT80 would have a bit more top end oomph than 88D.

Currently considering astrox 88 4U to complement my lining N9.
Is the D version way slower and head heavier than the S? I personally prefer a more balanced head like arcsaber 8DX and the N9 but i play more back court doubles most of the time
Yes, if you prefer even balanced rackets, you should clearly opt for the S.
You're gonna regret the 88S in 4U form... way too low head weight. If you look around this is the only version of 88S and 88D that is being resold on the second hand market... and for good reason.

IMO the 88 siblings are quite versatile enough in terms of their weight and stiffness "adopting" to your game play in general, perhaps because of the namd tech. So personally I find no issues using the 3U versions especially in doubles.

The marketing around the 88S has been all about skill and how the racket can hold the shuttle but what does it actually feel like when the racket "holds" the shuttle? Is there some sort of small delay from hitting to release?

How does 88s compare to DZS? I know it's less stiff than dzs but what about head weight?

4UG5 88D has been excellent for me so far, plays really quick and packs a lot of power, was extremely surprised at how easy clears and smashes are.
I haven't tried the 88S yet but I think I will stick to D since I lack power (smaller build). Fast enough for the front too.
Side note, I noticed Lee Yong Dae also swapped to using the 88D at his most recent tournament as well .
LYD with ax 88d
After four evenings (approx. 8 hours) playing with the 88d I can say that I'm still a very happy owner.
Clears, overheads, smashes are so easy with this racket.
Also mid and front court my 4u version is very fast and I get shuttles now, which I would miss in the early days with my Voltric 0F.
I still have some timing issues with my backhand clears and drive's, but to be honest they have always been my weak point.
Hi guys. I'm new in here and just a beginner player who wants to improve my play.
Currently I use Astrox 9 and I'm planning to buy my first high-end racket ever this weekend. The choice is A88 but still have no clue whether to get a D or an S. I think my characteristics suit the S better. I like to play in front-court and good at drive and control. But since I'm lacking power in smash and clear, I think D will be much helpful for me. But I'm afraid the D will be tiresome and hurt my arm though I'm just a casual player. So guys please help me with your suggestions.
I was also afraid that the D would tire and hurt my arm, but I tested the racket at the shop and it didn't and still have no pain or tiring arms. I would suggest to see of you are able to test the racket out first.
Thanks. I definitely will try both rackets out first. Before my top choice was AX88D with 5U or 4U at most, but since Yonex has announced Nanoflare 700 I don't know what to do now. Whether to wait until March to compare the AX88 with Nanoflare 700 or get the AX88 right now. Lol.

hi guys, do you think kevin sanjaya is using AS 88S 3U or 4U ?
Nothing can proof it ??
Maybe generalizing, I see when Kevin Sanjaya or LYD or Kamura play backcourt in mid rally and smash with 88s, seems opponents can defend.. you guys noticed any stronger smashes from LYD as of late using 88d?
The answer is no
Hello guys...can someone compare li ninh N9ii with Astrox 88d 4u please...Iam torn between the two.
Being an avid fan of the Arc11 (3UG5) and having finally tried the AX88D both in 4U and 3U form yesterday, safe to say I'll be looking at purchasing the 4U AX88D in the near future.
