Arcsaber i-Slash

The Arcsaber i-Slash comes with a remarkable design which keeps the shuttlecock on the strings for a moment longer, allowing you to save energy and deliver a powerful smash. With a large sweet spot and a slim build, this racket is best for players who wish for better power and control.

Nanoray 900

Yonex harnesses state-of-the-art technology to design the Nanoray which sports a highly flexible frame. This enables the racket to extend the repulsion of the shuttlecock for a moment longer, allowing you to position it down a steeper angle when performing a smash.

Voltric Z Force-II

The Voltric series was not only designed to offer excellent smashes but also all-around performance, and the Z Force-II is true to its name. It boasts an extremely thin yet sturdy shaft, thanks to Yonex’s special technology, making it the right badminton racket to harness both control and power.

Arcsaber 9FL

This super lightweight badminton racket comes with a semi-flexible shaft that returns the frame to its original form quickly after smashing the shuttlecock down. Aside from that, the frame's large isometric shape provides better accuracy to badminton players that have a more aggressive playing style.

Nanoray Z-Speed

Yonex is proud of its Z-Speed racket, as it is the world’s fastest racket. This is because it sports a unique frame in which the bottom part is thick, providing optimal repulsion. Meanwhile, the top part is thin, reducing the amount of resistance felt during a swing. In addition, this racket is ideal for expert badminton players to help them perform smashes effectively.
