Final Recommendation on the Cost from Professional Stringer And Coach
Eric’s Review: This Yonex badminton racket, to me, is quite stiff, especially the stringbed. Overall, even when I dropped the tension to 27lbs, it still feels stiff and heavy. Maybe it’s because I’ve stopped playing for a while. It’s better to choose the 4U version if you really like it. Actually, the feel of a racket varies from person to person, so you may want to try it.
The sound when hitting is not bad. However, if it’s too stiff, it’s not suitable for casual players like me. Although I’m also a badminton coach, if I don’t maintain my fitness level, this racket isn’t easy to use. I might get injured if I don’t play for a long time and then suddenly use it when I start my casual badminton game again. The price of new Astrox 100 ZZ Malaysia price is about RM650 to 800, Singapore dollars about $180 to $220.
So for the Yonex Astrox 100ZZ represents the pinnacle of innovation in professional badminton rackets. It delivers unprecedented levels of power and control while maintaining high speed and maneuverability. For intermediate to advanced players seeking the latest cutting-edge performance, the Astrox 100ZZ stands in a class of its own. We highly recommend this exceptional racket for competitive players demanding maximal power and pinpoint precision to dominate the court.
