Players can sometimes be skeptical about how the benefits of new technologies translate onto the court. So to help them out, let’s dive in and learn more about this technology:
New dimension graphite, NAMD, is created by attaching nanomaterial directly to the graphite fiber to produce a greatly improved adhesion of the graphite fiber and resin.
This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttlecock.
The racket with the Namd shaft makes a longer stroke than the normal shaft. The result is shuttlecock speed is increased by 7.1%.
Introducing a World’s First Revolutionary Graphite
ASTROX uses a world’s-first, new dimension Graphite material, Namd, which greatly improves the adhesion of the graphite fibers and resin by attaching nanomaterial directly to the Graphite fiber.
In high-performance racquets, combining nanomaterials with resin that connects Graphite fibers is common. Still, in Namd, nanomaterials have directly adhered to the graphite fibers, and the degree of adhesion between Graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased.
The ASTROX 100 ZZ and ASTROX 99 are the first Yonex badminton rackets to adopt Namd in the entire body of the racquet, including the frame. It helps to double contact time with the shuttle, resulting in an explosive shot, as the racquet returns from flexed to straight at the end of the swing.
Also, Astrox rackets are much better at reducing the energy loss between a player’s swing and the shuttle connecting with the string bed.
So, you will see Namd technology only indulges in Yonex Astrox series badminton rackets. With the help of this technology, a racket becomes more flexible and repulsive. Also, the players can transfer more energy between the shuttlecock and the racket.
