Yonex Duora 8XP Badminton Racket -Japan
High Tension Frame. Designed for players that want the latest in badminton technology in a racket that can withstand higher tensions.
The highly-anticipated Duora 8XP takes all of the radical innovation and world-class performance of the Duora Z-Strike and combines it with a 3U weight racket that is designed to be strung up to 35lbs. This cutting edge racket, featuring Dynamic Dual Design, allows players to master every shot and control the court with two contrasting racket profiles in one unique frame design.
The Nanometric DR carbon graphite box frame design (highlighted with a FOREHAND sign on the frame) improves shuttle hold for high repulsion and devastating smashes on the forehand, whilst the Ni-Ti fibre aero frame design allows for increased repulsion and attacking play on the backhand side. And because the DUORA 8XP is evenly balanced and has a stiff frame, there's no need to have a different type of racket, as you can add more power or speed to your game with one simple spin.
Created from a material originally developed for the next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racket industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, Nanometrid DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.

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.
VIBSLAYER CARBON is a material incorporated into the bottom-half of the frame. Made with ultra-thin layers of shock-absorbing material* between layers of carbon, players experience the same level of repulsion power generated by normal carbon with greatly reduced shock impact, cutting down on fatigue and stress on the body.
The ISOMETRIC™ equalizes the length of the main and cross strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-centre hits.
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
