NANOFLARE NEXTAGE: Exhilarating Feel

TOKYO, Japan – NANOFLARE racquets are renowned for their repulsion, but realizing their full potential can be demanding on the overall hitting sensation. Enter the all-new NANOFLARE NEXTAGE, the gateway to unhindered speed coupled with a softer feeling hitting experience. Tailored for intermediate players seeking increased speed and an exhilarating hitting feel to elevate their game, NANOFLARE NEXTAGE will be available in stores starting January 17, 2024.

This latest addition in the NEXTAGE series follows the heady heavy ASTROX NEXTAGE but in a head light alternative. Incorporating NANOFLARE DNA, the NANOFLARE NEXTAGE features the Sonic Flare System, enhanced with new technologies. By utilizing high elastic modulus HT GRAPHITE at the top of the frame, it creates a soft hitting feel upon impact. The Connected Grommets at the bottom enhance shuttle repulsion. The addition of these two technologies facilitates a swift attack and give rise to an exhilarating hitting experience. Furthermore, the Wide Profile Frame is employed to reduce frame warp during swings, ensuring racquet face stability and enhancing repulsion. Overall, the shape and repulsive ability of the frame are precisely developed to enhance the speed performance of the racquet. The overall frame construction creates the exhilarating feel of this racquet, enticing players to jump into quicker rallies.

NANOFLARE NEXTAGE features sleek, streamlined patterns complemented by a matte finish white base, embodying a futuristic sophistication. For additional details on this unique racquet, please inquire with your local retailers and stringers.




Sonic Flare System

The Sonic Flare System is built through a careful combination of high modulus graphite at the tip of the frame, and a strong yet elastic graphite, at the base of the frame. These graphite materials provide high repulsion for maximum shuttle acceleration, but the carefully calculated placement, volume and combination of the graphite materials also deliver stability and control.

Enhanced Sonic Flare System
The Sonic Flare System is enhanced through a careful combination of the high elastic modulus HT GRAPHITE at the tip of the frame, and Connected Grommets at the base. These materials provide high repulsion and comfort for maximum shuttle acceleration and an exhilarating feel.

Wide Profile Frame
NANOFLARE's characteristic wide frame and aero shape with sharp edges reduce frame warp during swing, improving repulsion and follow through.


The utilization of the E.B. CAP PLUS (Energy Boost Cap Plus) is to increase snapback.
