The Yonex ASTREL 115 GEN2 Tennis Racquet is the answer to your power needs, in a BIG way! This racquet features a super generous 115 square inch head size in a widebody, lightweight frame to make tennis a breeze, and connecting with the sweet spot a no-brainer!
Designed for players who are looking to easily swing through the ball and increase depth on their rallying shots, this racquet helps improve your swing speed and maximize the spin you create. With a head light balance, it ensures ease of swing. To add to this, Quad Force Gear pushes out on the racquet head, making the sweet spot more squared - and as a result, 10% larger. The Astrel will have you hitting smooth, solid strokes in no time!
To ensure that you can get this larger racquet around efficiently, Yonex designed it in a unique 26.75 inch overall frame length.
Yonex incorporates several technologies in this frame that make it ideal for beginners or intermediate players, or anyone looking for power, even with a more compact swing. React Resin, is a substance integrated into the graphite construction to create a more comfortable feel at impact. Quadforce Gear expands the string bed in the four corners to create a softer more lively stringbed. Carryover technology includes the Vibeslayer Carbon at the head to ensure a solid feel at impact. The Isometric head shape creates added size for the perfect hit.
