Yonex Astrox 88S Badminton Racket Review

Launched in 2018, the Yonex Astrox 88S badminton racket is the lighter headed model. Here are my initial thoughts (review sample is a 4U (80-84g) with a grip size G4). A full written review can be found on my website: https://badminton-coach.co.uk/10288/yonex-astrox-88s-badminton-racket-review/
I have also made a review of the 88D, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/LGfx924pDnw


Virak Seap says:

hey paul, as a player who wants a better defence and drives but wants to keep a strong smash, would you recommend this over the jetspeed s10?

Jeff Chen says:

nice review i have read the written review. are you making one for the 88D???

Swift Badminton School says:

Love the colourway of this racket!

Pontus Rydström says:

Hi Paul. Im currently in the choice to choose between ashaway, Apacs and kawasaki to have as my sponsor. Which do you prefer? I have no possibility to try all brands. Thank you for your videos ☺

Fai Fighter says:

Paul, is 4u Astrox 88s faster than the 4u victor jetspeed 12?

Edmond Ong says:

Hey paul Js12 or Astrox is faster

Lui says:

Hey Paul, which one has the faster frame, jetspeed s10 or astrox 88s?

Charbax says:

Are there stores in London that will let me try out different rackets before choosing the one that suits me best that I want to buy? And also to try out the different strings options on each?

DBOSS says:

Hi Paul,
Does it have good smash,drive and clear power(power in general), is it quick to?. Is the 3u going to be very different to the 4u (i believe the 3u’s are hard to get hold of).the answer to this will decide if I make a purchase on this racket, I’m a junior county player who plays singles and doubles and loves speed and power equally (my arms are strong enough as I’ve played vastly with a 105g 19lbs tension carlton racket)


Hi Paul,
Thanks for the video!!, how do you compare this to Lining XiPhos X1 racket, I believe you have a very good opinion for xiphos racket as well, appreciate your reply!!

esmaniez says:

Hi Paul,
How your comment compare to Voltric LDF? since it is still the best rating yonex racket review.. also Astrox is replacement of Voltric series and many single players begin to use astrox 88s 88d.. Thanks..

KiNG says:

Joshua Epstein Tasgal says:
