For rackets in the ASTROX line-up, the head-heavy nature of the series means strength is pertinent to unlocking the raw power. The brand new ASTROX 77 PRO is different -- power is effortless and accessible to all. The new ASTROX 77 PRO is designed with a mid-flex shaft and a maneuverable, slightly heavy head which grants extra power for a wide range of players from intermediate to advanced. This second-generation sports improvements in the hitting feel by enhancing shock absorption, and in power by balancing snap-back and flex.
The new ASTROX 77 PRO is a further evolved version of its predecessor, featuring new technologies for better performances and a 2.9% increase in smash power. The joint at the bottom of the frame is composed of a new resin material, Flex Fuse, which combines a shock-absorbing material with base resin for a softer feel on impact. The new elongated shaft is equipped with Namd(TM), a carbon-graphite material that generates quick snap-back to accompany the extra flex. The addition of the E.B.CAP PLUS (Energy Boost Cap Plus) is used for further snap-back.
The new ASTROX 77 will be seen in the hands of Tokyo Olympic Gold Medalist, Chen Yu Fei (CHN), World Tour Finals 2021 champion, An Se Young (KOR), 2022 World Championships mixed doubles winner, Huang Ya Qiong (CHN), and 2022 Malaysia Masters champion, Fajar Alfian (INA).
From the initial movement of the player to the impact, the new dimension graphite is difficult to harden, and the shaft extends and accumulates energy due to the speed of the fast swing. Since the follow-through of the swing is smaller after direct impact with the shuttle, the swing speed drops and the new dimension graphite regains hardness and strengthens the resilience of the shaft, allowing the energy to explode rapidly before returning to its original state.
By applying the counterbalance theory, weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. The transition to the next shot can be performed smoothly with a rapid succession.
