YONEX ASTROX 99

2020 – Present

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.
