Newest racket from Yonex with new techonology!! In 2004, the revolutionary technology NANOSCIENCE introduced nanotechnology into the world of badminton. The NANOSPEED Series with cutting edge FULLERENE built into the frame and shaft - then supported players as the game was accelerated further buy the Rally Point System. In 2011, the relentless advances in the sport of badminton now demand a further breakthrough in racquet techonology. The result is the NANORAY, a new and technologically advance racquet which delivers fast handling and high , responding to high-speed rallies with lightning fast movement.
Nanoray's frame serves two different purposes. The upper frame's aerodynamics reduces air resistance and the lower frame's high level strength increases repulsion power. Plus, the shaft's flexibility absorbs shock. This combined with a shaft that is designed to absorb shock on impact for greater repulsion. The NANORAY frame is designed for the lightning fast shot making even with a compact swing during the high speed rallies.
NANORAY 800 FEATURES:
NANOSCIENCE: Yonex Nanoscience achieves precise control over racquet functions at the molecular level. It establishes a high-performance molecular bond of the fullerene and carbon nano-particles, creating an ultra-lightweight racquet that's thinner, stronger and more stable than an ordinary racquet for maximum power and speed from swing energy.
X-FULLERENE: X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the Carbon fibres and creating the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create 5% higher and 15% greater stability.
NEW GROMMET SYSTEM: The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes, creating a high-performance stringing pattern that puts 7% more durability.
MUSCLE POWER: Muscle Power sets the string on rounded archways that eliminate stress-load and fatigue through contact friction. The construction creates total unity of the string and frame through closer-and-tighter contact.
NANOSCALE ELASTIC TI: Elastic Ti provides the high elasticity needed for structural high strength and a powerful rebound effect. At impact, Elastic Ti resists deformation, stretching then recovering its shape quickly to launch accurate hits charged with the full energy of the swing.
ISOMETRIC: The Isometric Square Head Shape equalizes the length of main and cross strings in the stringbed, enlarging the sweetspot for more consistent accuracy even on off-center hits.
BUILT IN T-JOINT: Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the Yonex built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
