The Yonex ASTREL 115 Tennis Racquet is built for advanced recreational players who place an emphasis on a lightweight frame for the utmost in control and power. The most unique thing about the ASTREL 115, is the slightly reduced length of 26.75 inches. The shorter length makes the large 115 square inch head size incredibly easy to get moving. Using React Resin, a lightweight and flexible material built into the graphite, the ASTREL 115 is built to be more flexible and comfortable than a typical game improvement racquet. Continuing the comfort trend, Yonex incorporates the Tri-Shut System of three different materials: Vibslayer Carbon, Shock-less Grommets, and Vibration Dampening Mesh. VDM is a stretchy mesh material wrapped around the graphite inside the handle to filter out unwanted vibrations. The handle of the ASTREL 115 features Yonex' Ergo Power Grip which means the grip is larger at the bottom, and thinner towards the top of the grip. The system allows more of your hand to be in contact with the grip for better access to power.
The 115 square inch Isometric head shape enlarges the sweet spot of the ASTREL 115, while the wide open 16x17 string pattern makes it easy to generate spin. While the beam is tapered slightly thicker (27/28.5/25mm), the 9.2 ounce unstrung weight keeps the ASTREL super mobile. The ASTREL 115 places an emphasis on comfort and maneuverability, and the racquet is built for players looking for more power from their shorter strokes.
