Yonex ™ Nanoflare 700 Badminton Racquet
Yonex’ new Nanoflare series replaces the old Nanoray series. Players who were comfortable with Nanorays will be equally comfortable with Nanoflares. As with the old series, the new Nanoflare series is designed primarily for patient, skillful badminton players who play a mix of drops and clears. Where the Astrox and Voltric series are for smashes, drives, and other power shots typically played from the back of the court, the Nanoray/Nanoflare series is aimed at mid- to front-court players.
The Nanoflare series has been re-engineered to deliver more power while maintaining the traditional a head light design that Nanoray players are accustomed to. The new loop features new materials and a new design which increases repulsion power. Meanwhile, the shafts of most of the racquets in this series are now made of high modulus graphite, which further increases flexibility and power throughout the range.

A head-light racquet that also provides extra shuttle speed and distance! Yonex introduces the Nanoflare 700!
While many players around the world prefer the touch and maneuverability of a head-light racquet, the one downside has been sacrificing the shuttle speed and power of a head-heavy racquet. Yonex Co. Ltd. has upended that contradiction with the new Nanoflare 700 (releasing March 1st), a head-light racquet built with unique technology and construction that helps players not only play nimbly but also achieve increased shuttle acceleration allowing them to hit deep into their opponent’s court.
To achieve this, designers and engineers at Yonex reimagined frame design. Firstly, the Nanoflare 700 is the first racquet to utilize the Sonic Flare System design, utilizing the latest in graphite technologies, such as TORAYCA® M40X*, to create a stable yet highly repulsive head shape. Additionally, by designing a highly aero-dimensional shape built to compress and “snap back.” they were able to realize an ultra-light racquet (5U avg. 78g) for players who demand agility, that is also able to launch the shuttle at speeds not before possible in a head-light racquet. This also results in a greater hitting feeling and less impact on the player’s arm.

This is a medium flex badminton racquet, which makes it suitable for most recreational players. Big, strong, athletic players may find this shaft too flexible but it should be spot on for most other adults and most athletic teens over 15. Players under 15 and some seniors, especially ladies, may want to consider choosing a different racquet with a hi-flex frame.

This racquet is being manufactured in a range of weights and grip sizes. The 4U version weighs an average of 83 grams and is available in three grip sizes: G4, G5, G6.

Sonic Flare System
M40X Graphite (aka Super High Modulus Graphite) is stronger and more resilient than High Modulus Graphite
Reimagining Frame Shape
The new Aero Frame is both highly aerodynamic, allowing for fast and easy swings, while maintaining a profile that allows the frame to compress on impact with the shuttle, and snap back, much like a trampoline, launching the shuttle from the face of the racquet.
Isometric Head Shape
Yonex’ square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length. This shape produces a larger sweet spot in all directions.
Super Slim Long Shaft
This is the slimmest racquet ever produced by Yonex. It vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
New Grommet Pattern
Yonex’ new single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes and fewer shared holes than other brands. This permits for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
Solid Feel Core
The built-in solid feel core in Yonex premium racquets reduces harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. This technology, called “solid feel core” is a feature of all Yonex racquets manufactured in Japan.
Yonex Aero Frame
Decreases air resistance and realizes a quicker swing.
Built in T-Joint
‘New’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and a foaming agent. Yonex says that it enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the stringbed and through the air.
Yonex Control Support Cap
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
