NANORAY’s frame serves two different purposes. The upper frame’s aerodynamics reduces air resistance and the lower frame’s high level strength increases repulsion power. Plus, the shaft’s flexibility absorbs shock. This combined with a shaft that is design to absorb shock on impact for greater repulsion. The NANORAY frame is designed for the lightning fast shot making even with a compact swing during the high speed rallies.
The aerodynamic qualities of the NANORAY frame - both the front and the side of the frame are designed to reduce air resistance - ensure that you can achieve a new level of swing speed. This new speed has the potential to lift your game dramatically, especially in attacking situations close to the net where speed of reaction and rapid repetition of the drive shot are vital.
SONIC METAL is an exceptionally strong, light weight and flexible new titanium alloy which YONEX positions at the top of the frame. This has two advantages. Firstly, it gives you a higher repulsion power, especially in attack. Secondly, it creates a clear strong sound when the shuttlecock is hit.
This acoustic, combined with the dramatic increase in repulsion, will put your opponent under immediate pressure.
Incorporating X-FULLERENE into the whole shaft strengthens the binding force, increasing stiffness by 6% and repulsion power by 4%.
This combination delivers high repulsion performance to hit deep into the opponent’s court even with a compact swing during high speed rallies.
Lightning fast shot-making with high repulsion is generated by near-instant ‘snap back’ from the shaft during the swing.
FULLERENE is equipped into the lower sides of the frame to deliver high elasticity and stiffness for exhilarating, sharp repulsion. In synergy with increased stiffness from the new AERO Frame shape, the NR700RP generates exceptional drive shots.
TOUGHLEX - a ‘sticky’ resin which delivers high flexibility and intensity - is incorporated into both sides of the frame.
High resilience and flexibility help players to hit easy clear shots.
FX PLUS is a new hybrid material that provides greater elasticity for bigger clear shots.
ISOMETRIC technology was invented by YONEX to maximise the vital sweet spot area and is now a world leading feature of our racquets. The square shaped head of the racquet means that there are more strings crossing at right angles. This results in a bigger sweet spot.
YONEX continues to develop and enhance ISOMETRIC power, reducing still further the ‘inert’ space around the edge of conventional racquets, creating a far bigger sweet spot than other frames.
