    Saw a message from my friend on his daily roaming on badmintoncn. a9e6e0ce-67c9-463f-afff-5779156fea3e.jpg

    Seems that the all prophesized AX99 will be out soon

    So basically AstroXXX? Yeah I'm buying. This is not gonna be fun for parents when the kids search it and forget to add the " - " in between unless they have safesearch filters etc. on.

    Seems like a bit of a compact head and with that background I assume it's a ZF2 replacement. Right up my alley. Well I hope anyway.

    it said that this is a flagship astrox racket and the most powerful racket in yonex history, LCW is going to use this racket first time at WC2018 in Nanjing, price in China is 1780 rmb, Kento Momota is going to use this racket also.

    i think LCW used this racket at Malaysia open, which was painted like a blue duora10 with energy boost cap

    Looks like a compact head AX, basically what we've been waiting for :) Surprised they're not calling it z-something.

    that's a terrible assumption / train of thought.

    If this racquet is anything like a ZF2 then the 88S will feel nothing like it either. You'll be fine if you're happy with your 88S.

    Haha. I was jk. I am very pleased with the 88s, didn't think I'd ever switched to another racket other than my beloved js10. But the 88s was just parfait!

    We know this probably isn't going to really happen. It's gonna be the same repainted racket circus again
