2020 – Present

The Yonex Astrox series was lauched in 2017 and in 2020 Yonex brought this new version. This is a head heavy racket with a rigid frame. The racket comes in 4U and 3U variants. This racket is powerful, fast, and precise.

This racket is one of the heavier rackets available. It can deliver powerful smashes but it is not too tiring to the arm. This racket will be beneficial for both doubles and singles players who want a fast, accurate and powerful racket. It features a solid core racket shaft.
