The Yonex ASTROX 99 Game (AX99G) White Tiger badminton racket is designed similar to the popular high-end Astrox 99 Pro White Tiger using less advanced material and softer shaft stiffness, medium stiff instead of stiff. The racket has a head heavy balance with a medium stiff shaft for Feel and control. The racket comes pre-strung from the manufacturer. Like all standard Astrox, ASTROX 99 Game (AX99G) racket is equipped with Rotational Generator System. The counter-balanced head adapts to each shot, helping you to control the drive and to attack the opposition with increased acceleration, steeper angle, and power on the smash. Astrox rackets are an attack-oriented model that can take the lead in a high-speed game with a design that can deliver powerful, steep smashes, allowing you to dominate the court.
The ASTROX 99 Game is a head-heavy power racket, boasting the heaviest swing weight of the ASTROX series. It is known to generate a single, powerful smash, often too heavy to be speedy in recovery. In response, Yonex worked hand in hand with Kento Momota to craft a racket that would give him both power and the ability to convert defensive plays into offense; the result is an improved ASTROX 99 series where decisive power is accompanied by extended shuttle hold for enhanced defensive shot-making.
Power Assist Bumper
The new ASTROX 99 Game is equipped with the POWER-ASSIST BUMPER, a tungsten-infused weighted bumper installed at the top of the frame transferring additional weight to the shuttle for more powerful smashes. To enhance defensive shot-making, Wide Diameter Grommets are strategically placed on the frame sides, allowing strings to shift at impact for emphasized shuttle pocketing. The iconic ISOMETRIC frame has been modified by strengthening frame corners to adjust the shape and expand the sweet spot.
Rotational Generator System
Intricate weight distribution technology designed with the counterbalance theory that allows head-heavy rackets to recover faster between shots. By employing the VOLUME CUT RESIN and POWER-ASSIST BUMPER, the new ASTROX 99 Game have a further refined Rotational Generator System where intricate weight distribution can be taken to the next level.
Wide Diameter Grommets
Control the shuttle-release timing with larger grommets designed for more string movement, extending the shuttle contact time.
Modified ISOMETRIC frame shape
The iconic ISOMETRIC head shape is enhanced for a larger, more forgiving sweet spot. Frame sides are strategically reinforced with wider areas for a stronger construct.
