Kento Momota

Momota is a Japanese badminton player. He is known for his explosive movements on court and his unpredictable style of play. He has won several major badminton tournaments including two World Championships titles

Racket used by Kento momota: Astrox 99

But looking at the launch of the new Astrox 100 i am certain that he will be using this racket in the future for quite some time to see if it suits him

Some features of Astrox 99

Shaft of the racket is stiff which means it is good for attacking player probably this is why yonex started campaign with name steep attack challenge

It is a heavy head but the weight of the racket is evenly balanced making it an all-round racket

Definitely not beginners but if you have good pronation technique than go for it

Viktor Axelsen

He is a Danish badminton player. He was the 2017 World Champion and the bronze medalist at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Very tall man with height 1.94 m (6 ft 4 in)

Racket used by Viktor Axelsen: Duora Z Strike

After the launch of astrox 99 he changed his racket but seems like his playing style did not matched with the racket so he shifted back to Duora Z Strike

Some Features of Axelsen’s racket

This racket uses duora technology which means that one side of the racket frame is faster and the other side is slower but when I played with my friend’s racket it doesn’t feel much of a difference

I would highly recommend this racket because of how perfect it is in every aspect, control, power, accuracy

Some Features of Astrox 88D

Before the features just a quick note , here in racket name D stands for Dominance whereas other varitant of this racket 88S stands for speed

Shaft:- It has a stiff shaft so it is easier to control your shots as compared to the flexible shaft but you need a good technique to get the most out of this racket also it has one of the slimmest shaft Yonex has ever produced which means less air resistance during swings

Balance:- It is a head heavy racket but what I liked about it is that how fast it is at the same time meaning that you can also use this racket while playing doubles even after being a head heavy racket
