    So i was scrolling through my shop's website and saw these. The Astrox is F/G5, flexible and holds 20-28 lbs while the Nanoflare is 4U/G5, medium stiff and holds 20-28lbs. Screenshot_2019-08-26-16-30-18-778_com.android.chrome.png Screenshot_2019-08-26-16-30-02-683_com.android.chrome.png

    What are you trying to introduce? These are just some products for certain markets. Just like Astrox 38 68 or something.
    They are not even mentioned on Yonex website.

    my friend own it. Well... For the price its good playability for sure.
    Paint quality wise, its much better than low end Lining racket like TC09 or 3DC08.

    Many would agree that skill is what most important than a racket. A pro could use a low end racket & beat us using a high end racket easily. So, consider this. Dont look on the price, high end or not. If all of its spec really suit you even if its the cheapest, why bother a high end if it didnt suit you at all.

    At least even if its cheap low end, you can still play with it competitively. If you like more stiffer then its different story, its not bad but just the spec not suit your preference.

    Afterall i know some unknown super cheap racket that didnt worth at all no matter how cheap they are. Its price bellow 100K IDR tho some of it design is quite attractive but just that & only that. The frame feel weak as if i could break it any moment if i smash hard with it. The string.... Uummm... I cant say if its a string, more like a perfectly cooked noodle. Very soft, with very loussy tension. If one looking for racket that have the longest shuttle hold, then this is the one as the shuttle will stay like forever. Seriously no repulsion at all.

    Astrox mean for repeat atk instead of one powerfull smash.:D
    But they really need to find better name for new release.

    astrox smash is quite light, maybe you make a wrong choice because it's name.

    astrox smash is lighter than nanoflare drive by racket force machine ^-^

    :Dits just a name & manufacturer can name their product as the like.

    Turbo Charging. Ok Turbo, speed... But why charging... Its to slow if we had to charge in before unleasing its power.

    Auraspeed. What? Aura? Is it Cosmos like in Saint Seiya, or Chakra in Naruto? Why not lightspeed or soundspeed?

    22, 77, 88, 99. What are those number. Eeerrr... Prisonner number 22, prisoner number 99... Lol:confused:

    Forget the name. If you like & fit with the spec which is lighter, abit more head heavy, & flex, well its worthy racket to play with.:D
    If not, doesnt mean its bad racket, but not fit for you

    Never said it was a wrong choice, with lighter racket i know what i can do and cant do well with it, all i said that despite it got smash written on its name, its not a racket for smashing because of the weight

    Have you tried the nanoflare drive?
    I just bought it because i look for 4U flex racket, but i found it doesn't seem to be a flexible at all!! more like medium stiff to me

    I use Astrox Smash with Ashaway 66 fire power 12/12,5 kg and it´s really good racket - cost only 50EUR with delivery. Previously I used AX88d but after two demage racket in doubles I switch to cheaper racket. It's definitely different racket, really light, but not flexible or medium flex, I mean it´s really stiff.
