The Yonex Astrox 99 badminton racket is definitely one of the best rackets I have ever played with. Its power is unrivaled, and its speed is decent too. However, it takes time, proper technique, and strength to play well with this racket making it a choice that is more suited to advanced players.
Then, is ASTROX 99 good for doubles?
Although both rackets can be used for doubles as well as singles games, the Yonex Astrox 99 racket is a slightly faster option. It means it is well-suited for the doubles game which requires more agility. The flexible shaft can make your shots quicker than before.
People also ask, when did ASTROX 99 come out?
Targeted at advanced players, the ASTROX 99 is designed to deliver power from hit after hit. Worldwide release is scheduled for mid-September 2018.
Is Arcsaber 11 good?
Summary. Arcsaber 11 is a very nice racquet. It’s main forte is that it’s a really good all-rounder, delivering a high degree of power, balanced with the ability to turn on the speed to cope with defending , mid-court exchanges and frenzied net play.
Introduced in 2017, the Astrox 77 immediately had International players such as Marcus Gideon Fernaldi from Indonesia, Ratchanok Intanon from Thailand, and Akane Yamaguchi using it. A definite plus, considering Gideon is a frantic doubles player while Intanon and Yamaguchi are more traditional singles players.

Control: With medium flex shaft , Yonex voltric 5 provide better control on shots. Counter Attack: Racket with fast handling will always helps in better counter attack. So keeping this fact in mind , we found that Nanoray 20 is better on counter attack.
The Yonex Astrox 99 was unveiled at this tournament with two big names confirmed using the racket, legend Lee Chong Wei and new World number 1 and recent World Champion, Kento Momota. Yonex have advertised this badminton racket as the one that provides steep attack.
That said, Astrox 88D hits really well and there were no issues hitting a good length without much effort. Unlike some head heavy rackets, 88D delivers time after time and does not cause tiring in the arm. The fast swing allows good, clean hitting from the corners whether hitting high or low. I like it.
Clears are effortless and the feedback from the NANOFLARE 800 is absolutely superb. The stiff-flex also ensures that clears are accurate. This racket performs admirably for both high clears and punch clears. However, like all other rackets with a fast swing-speed, it will take you a while to adjust to the timing.
