Yonex ™ Nanoflare 800 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.

The main new feature of the NANOFLARE 800 is the ultra-thin Razor Frame, which is aerodynamic from all angles. Compared with other thin frames, the 360° streamlined Razor Frame means air resistance is reduced by up to 11.5% from all angles, resulting in a faster swing speed. This also means that shuttle speeds off the racquet have increased. Overall, because of the quicker speeds, the player can reach the shuttle earlier, improving their ability to pressure opponents with aggressive drives and pushes
Additionally, a high elasticity carbon has been utilized in the top of the frame for repulsion, while a new graphite material, TORAYCA® M40 X*2 that is both strong and highly elastic is used in the lower part of the frame. This is the 800’s iteration of the Sonic Flare System, designed to rapidly eject the shuttle after contact.

This is a stiff flex badminton racquet, which makes it suitable for advanced and elite players. Players at the recreational level may find this racquet too stiff. Players under 15 and some seniors, especially ladies, may want to consider choosing a different racquet with a hi-flex frame.

Available Weights / Grip Sizes
This racquet is being manufactured in a range of weights and grip sizes. The 3U version weighs an average of 88 grams and is available in two grip sizes: G5, G6. The lighter 4U version weighs an average of 83 grams and is available in grip sizes 5 and 6. However, the only options being imported by Yonex Canada are 3U4 and 4U5.

Sonic Flare System
Power with a more flexible frame
A strong, elastic graphite is added in the throat to improve frame stability and flex.
M40X Graphite (aka Super High Modulus Graphite) is stronger and more resilient than High Modulus Graphite
*TORAYCA® is a next generation carbon fiber developed by Toray Industries, Inc.
NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
By reducing the upper part of the frame by 13% and the lower part by 15.1%, when compared to conventional thin-frame racquets, air resistance is reduced by 9.3% in the upper portion of the frame and 11.5% in the lower. The Ultra Slim Shaft adds to the aerodynamic properties 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.
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.
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.
