Yonex Duora 8 XP Badminton Racket.
The new Duora 8 XP (Duo8XP) maintains a higher string tension to allow attackers or defending players to reach maximum power and accuracy. The strongest blow is a result of higher tension that turns in to higher speed. Duora 8 XP has multi-directional carbon fibers that increase frame rigidity and reduce frame tension from higher than medium stroke tension.
The DUORA series stands at the forefront of Yonex badminton innovation, developed to provide enhanced performance on both forehand and backhand shots. The DUORA series matches the diversified demands of today’s game.
DUAL OPTIMUM SYSTEM
NANOMETRIC* technology provides improved bonding strength in between the carbon fibres. This allows Yonex to take the racket shaft construction to another level by reducing amount of carbon used in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst keeping the same stiffness. Yonex has developed a revolutionary lightweight racket with lightening head speed and precise control.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
*approximate measurement when compared to a conventional racquet shaft, tested by YONEX
Completely new technology designed and developed by Yonex. Technology is based on their unique NANOSIENCE technology. Carbon material is created from a material, which was originally developed for next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc.. This leaves a mark in history, when this material was used in racket industry for the first time. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion power, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into class of its own.
Square shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at similar length, as well as horizontal ones. This allows the racket to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
New Grommet Pattern
The single-pass grommet hole construction allows to implement more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
Solid Feel Core in Yonex Duora 8 XP
Built in solid feel core cuts out harmful diverse vibrations during the impact. Solid feel core is implemented in all rackets manufactured in Japan.
Two different frame types were introduced to Yonex Duora 8 XP. They combine solid hitting feel and quick swing.
NEW Built in T-joint
Built in T- Joint is produced from special lightweight plastic and it is combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent. It enhances the quality and performance by increased stability of the shuttlecock on the string bed and through air.
Control Support Cap
Control support cap provides 88% wider flat surface compared to ordinary racket. It enhances the easier gripping, sharp maneuverability and fast follow-through.
