Technology is absolutely impractical, in a tight match you would have to switch backhand and forehand in the specific direction!?? When I played with this racket i felt like i had no control over my shots and my fast shots always fell to the net, disappointing, a waste of money really, go and buy something more practical like a nanoray Z speed or Glanz, this duora series looks good but really impractical.

“I feel like my arm is one with the racquet on both my forehand and backhand, so I can push faster at the net.” — Lee Chong Wei

[tab title=”EXTRA SLIM SHAFT “]
EXTRA SLIM SHAFT – THE THINNEST STRONGEST EVER PRODUCED BY YONEX
Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.
[tab title=”NANOMETRIC “]
NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and 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

[tab title=”NANOMETRIC DR”]
NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon material developed by Yonex based on our unique NANOSCIENCE technology. Created from a material originally developed for next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racquet industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.
[tab title=”DUORA Grommet”]
The new DUORA Grommet design features 8 linked grommets made with differing thicknesses on either side of the frame. When hit on the box side, thicker and harder grommets on the aero side result in a stiffer string bed, ultimately increasing launch power on the shuttlecock.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
[tab title=”NEW Grommet Pattern”]
The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
[tab title=”HORIZONTAL-A CONCEPT]
YONEX has designed a new grommet pattern called the HORIZONTAL-A CONCEPT that has helped us create the smallest frame in our history. The pattern anchors 4 strings horizontally to allow greater flex in the string bed and to create an enlarged sweet spot at the top of the frame. So even off-centre shots can be powerful.
[tab title=”Solid Feel Core”]
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
[tab title=”Compact Frame”]
The first racquet from YONEX with a compact frame. The smaller frame size further reduces unwanted air resistance and improves feel.
[tab title=”AERO+BOX Frame”]
Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.
[tab title=”Built-in T-Joint”]
Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX Built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off centre shot.
[tab title=”Control Support Cap”]
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
