Duora Series offers two fold benefits to players:
One side of the frame is constructed with aero type frame section which provide better aerodynamic suitable for fast racket handling.
Other side of frame is constructed with Box type frame section which provides better strength for powerful shots.
Racket is equipped with dual frame cross section technology which is basically a technology in which frame of racket is made of two different cross sections. Idea is to utilize full capacity of frame which can give different playing characteristics by using different sides. Two cross sections are aero type and Box type. We know that Aero type frame Cross section is designed with keeping in mind the Aerodynamic laws which includes the optimizing the section to minimize the air resistance Box type frame is developed to give more strength and power. To further improve the racket behavior, Yonex used different material at different cross sections. By doing this innovation (Using different Cross sections and different material) , Yonex introduces racket with all new features in single racket. Player can use aero cross section for lightening fast racket handling while Box type of frame for powerful smashes
Key difference in two Rackets:
Sweet Spot area: Astrox 77 is having large sweet spot area which gives possibility to hit powerful shots. So player can enjoy the shot timing even from the 1st shot. Duora 10 is having concentrated sweet spot.
Stiffness: Duora 10 is construed with stiff shaft so player who love to play with stiff shaft and wants to generate more power on shots will like Duora 10. As a comparison, player can feel some additional power in Duora 10 as compared to Astrox 77.
Weight: Astrox 77 weigh is around 83 gms while Duora 10 weight is around 89 gms. So players who love the play with lightweight racket will like Astorx 77.Lightweight racket helps in generating better swing speed which eventually helps in speedy smashes.
Handling the shots at Net: Both the rackets performed well during test , however , we will give added advantage to Astrox 77 over Duora 10.
Defense: Defense of Duora 10 is fund to be better as compared to Astrox 77. However, Rotation generation system technology, Astrox 77 is also good in making drop shots, cross corner shots and half smashes.
Counter Attack: Counter attack is depend how racket react when we hit the shot. Racket with fast handling helps in placing quick shots while steady head helps in placing accurate shots. Duora 10 Box type frame helps in better accuracy and aero frame gives better speed. So counterattack is Duora 10 is better.

Duora 10 is a latest launch by YONEX in 2015. It is equipped with BOX type frame design which gives a new aerodynamic frame design shape to racket and allow badminton player to hit Strong forehand smash and fast backhand drive. It is a stiff badminton racket with 2 weight configurations (3U (Ave.88g), 2U (Ave.93g)). It is available in Green and Orange color. Frame of Duora 10 is made of H.M. Graphite, NANOMETRIC DR, Ni-Ti Fiber while its shaft is made of H.M. Graphite, NANOMETRIC.
Enjoy the game with Dual Optimum System
In dual optimum fame concept, YONEX putted 2 types of frame sections design into single frame constriction. Front side of the frame is designed with box section frame while backside of frame is designed with aero frame. This type of configuration gives two sections into single frame construction. Box section is designed with new material Nanometric Dr while aero section is designed with NI-TI fiber material. Both the Material together gives new and revolution frame designed which gives following benefits to badminton players.
Forehand side of frame is designed with Box type section and equipped with Nanometric DR Material which gives shuttle hold time 3%. Due to this player place the shuttle with more power and superb control.
Backhand side of frame is designed with aero type section and equipped with NI-TI fiber which gives repulsion 9% . Due to this player gets stiffer racket which results into quick racket repulsion.
Yonex Astrox is latest 2017 launched by Yonex
. This racket is belongs to innovative Astrox series which gives finest control and help in effective drives, Sharpe cuts and powerful smashes. Astrox 77 is developed on rotation generated system which counter balanced the weight of racket into tree points to racket frame top, joint and grip. This type on innovative weight balance system offers better power transfer from string bed to shuttle.
Following are the Key benefits of RGS (Rotation generator system):
• Weight of racket is properly distributed throughout the grip side, Frame top and joint of racket.
• Rotation generated system offers better control on shots at it provide better rigidity.
• This system gives betters transition from one shot to another.
To improve the stiffness of shaft Yonex used NAMD material in shaft along with Hm graphite. NAMD help in better flexibility and stiffness. Frame of racket is made of H.M. GRAPHITE + NANOMETRIC + Tungsten. Astrox is a lightweight badminton racket with weight around 83 gms.
