The popular ASTROX 99 series known for generating dominating smash power, is coming out with new technology and a new look ― in collaboration with men's singles World No 1. Kento Momota. The new ASTROX 99 Pro goes a step beyond unequivocal raw power, gaining the ability to control the pace of the game.
The ASTROX 99 Pro 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 Pro where decisive power is accompanied by extended shuttle hold for enhanced defensive shot-making.
