2019 – Present
Back from injury in 2019, Jan O Jorgensen is now in action on court with a Yonex Astrox 99. He had been out of action in 2017 and 2018 due to a very troubling recurring heel injury.

The Yonex Astrox 99 was launched in 2018. The racket looks fire with the orange colour and has an interesting feel. It is a stiff and heavy racket which is more suitable for singles players than doubles players.

The racket is good for smashing and it also performed well defensively. Yonex claims this racket can provide steep attacks, this seems like an oversell though. It’s not as fast as Astrox 88D but still moves well for overhead shots and it also delivers power shots better than Astrox 88S.

2014 – 2018
The Voltric 80 E Tune was not a very popular racket. It had removable grommets at the top and the bottom part of the racket which was meant for “tuning” to the different play styles of different individuals. It seemed like some sort of a gimmick from Yonex which failed terribly. There were not many players apart from Jorgensen who used this racket.

2013 & before
This famous racket was also used by Lin Dan. It is a head heavy very powerful racket with a medium amount of flex.
