Pre-strung with Yonex Demo Gut

This racquet comes from the factory pre-strung with a version of Yonex demo gut. Demo gut is put into racquets in order to help mass market sporting goods stores sell their racquets. The purpose of this string is to give the racquet shelf-appeal. Demo gut is not intended for players who will be playing games in which the points matter to them. Therefore, unless this racquet is being used by a child, we recommend restringing this racquet with quality Yonex badminton string immediately after purchase.

Racquet Technology



Nanomesh Neo

The First Generation of Graphite:

NANOMESH NEO, an adhesive which helps combine the Graphite fiber with the resin for a stronger and more flexible frame. This allows for the shaft to flex more building up energy to transfer to the shuttle, on both smash and drive shots. Once the racquet has made contact with the shuttle the NANOMESH NEO helps the frame to return to its original state in order for you to be able to play your next shot for that attacking edge.



Aero+Box Frame

Yonex frames are contoured differently on different parts of the loop. Some areas feature an aerodynamic shape to reduce air resistance. Other areas feature a box shape to provide strength and power. This combination offers a quick swing with a solid feel.



Isometric Head Shape

Yonex rotational generator system applies the counterbalance theory in Yonex racquets. Weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. This ensures a smooth and rapid transition to the next shot.



Energy Boost Cap
