    I've really failed have I, by updating the new pictures to the correct threads... now it's all over the place and people don't know what's what. Nobody even liked that damn post, shows how many people actually saw it....

    I even spotted Sonoda holding it during AE's LV...

    And another waiting to be spoonfed idiot lazily asking for visuals in the professional racquets thread without trying to find after seeing Chiko type the said news.... sigh facepalm.

    Damn so much heat for asking a simple question but thanks for actually linking it.

    I actually did went on Yonex website, google search a bit and instagram search but could only see the version I have. Anyway ... thanks again for informing.

    Official Image From Yonex Japan website. Called the "Kento Momota Edition". Sapphire Navy Colourway. Launched Late May 2020. The design also incorporates the opinion of Kento Momota (NTT East Japan) who has used this product, and based on Navy, we treated "Gold" as an image to keep running at the top.

    Colour combination is old school but I personally like it. I think it's something that has to be seen in person rather than on internet to really judge it. It's still too stiff of a racket for my level of play anyway.

    Come on, you can do better than that.

    Google translate, in no way mentions this is the, by your words, "Kento Momota Edition". Is that something you want on a personal level? It only states that they consulted KM (from NTT-E) on the colorway options.

    How hard is it to plagiarise an auto-translated webpage? Amazing.
    Meanwhile May is still a while away so I have no idea this racket has already "launched". "Launching" would be the right word, and I would bet you hail from a past British colony or in GB, one of the two.

    I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. It is a colourway for the original ax99. But I refer it to the momota edition. Since he will be using it in the Olympics.

    Has anyone got their hands on the new blue Astrox 99? How is that compared to the old orange ax99, esp. in terms of manoeuvrability?

    i felt the same performance as 2nd batch ax99 orange, easier to move around than the 2nd batch. still heavier than ax99 lcw.
