    • 88s fierce man

      (Experience:11〜20 years) A versatile racket that is too perfect

      I bought Astrox 88s (4U5G). So far, I have purchased and used more than 30 types of rackets, but this is the first time for me to have such a comfortable and perfect racket. I feel that the most compatible gut is Aerobite. It's a versatile racket that is well-balanced in everything, so it's really easy to use. Although it is a head heavy racket specialized for smash, I realized that it is designed so that it does not feel heavy. The shaft is stiff, but it is surprising, so the racket adds a shuttle, and the feel of hitting is soft in the Astrox series, it is very easy to control, and it is an advanced racket that can be used even by weak people. Also, because it is a 5 mm long design, it is a little shorter than a normal racket, but you will soon get used to it when using it. Rather, I feel that the receiving surface is easy to handle and has many advantages. In addition, the sharpness and sinking of the smash is excellent, and you can hit a smash that is clearly faster than the Astrox 77. Since it is a racket that has both attack power and operability, it is a racket that can be recommended to anyone. If you are considering purchasing, 4U is highly recommended.

    • (Experience:2〜3 years) Doubles specialization

      I'm a high school student. I use Astrox 99 and Astrox 88spro, which was released the other day. All shots are perfectly easy to hit in doubles. Especially angled smash. However, when I use 88s pro in singles, I'm forced to clear because I've been using 99 for some time. So I don't recommend using it for singles. Also, it's obviously easier to cut the gut than 99. You may need to be careful about that area. (Maybe I'm not good at it) I hope it will be helpful for those who are considering buying it.

    • Grandpa Arasa who can't shake 3U

      (Experience:6〜10 years) Excellent operability but lack of power

      I bought 4UG5 because it is a rumored masterpiece in the streets. There is no doubt that the operability is outstanding, and it is no wonder that many people find it easy to use. However, it seems that the weight of the head is sacrificed for operability, and there is an impression that it will come off a little if you hit it with full power. I just felt like when I was getting tired. (I wanted to hit 3U, but I gave up because I couldn't afford it.) I thought that the concept smash was not about power but about "stable sinking". It's definitely easy to use, but it won't be the main thing for me.

      (Experience:4〜5 years)

      Due to the bending of the frame, which is also a feature of the Astrox 88S, you can feel the addition when you catch the shuttle. Therefore, I felt that it was easy to make an angle when hitting a bang or when shooting an offensive shot.

      (Experience:More than 20 years) Legendary racket 88s

      A person (middle-aged man) who purchases and uses the new colors 88s and 4U. I happened to play doubles with singles main, but as the reputation says, I bought 4U and it was the correct answer. 3U is heavier with this racket than the head heavy, so I should quit. I am convinced that it is the best racket in the badminton world. In addition, there is a game, pro of Astrox 88sd, which will be newly released from the end of March 2021. This will surely discontinue the Astrox 88s and make it a legendary racket. It is obvious that the scarcity value will increase sharply as it is out of print. I definitely want to buy this best-ever racket before it goes out of print.

    • A person who loves badminton

      (Experience:4〜5 years) The best racket!

      * Purchased new colors 3U5G and 4U5G. It was the best racket (4U5G) I have ever used. There is no habit and every shot is ideally decided. You should definitely buy 4U rather than 3U! Since the Astrox series is head heavy, I think 3U feels heavy unless you are a power hitter. Also, with 3U, there is a high possibility that you will not be able to keep up with the quick development when doing doubles, and your arms will get tired. On the other hand, 4U is very easy to handle and definitely improves control.

    • New color 4U5G

      (Experience:2〜3 years) Supreme Racket (Astrox 88s)

      A racket that is excellent in everything and has no drawbacks. It is no exaggeration to say that it is the best racket ever. I play both singles and doubles, but I bought 4U and it was the correct answer. Although it is 4U, the swing weight feels heavier than the 3U even racket because it is head heavy.
