In September 2009, ARCSABER Z-SLASH recorded a smash of over 400km/h, setting a new world record speed for badminton - the world's fastest racquet sport. One year after the ARCSABER Z-SLASH's debut, YONEX can reveal the next step in racquet evolution - a racquet equipped with the technology to overcome even your toughest opponent.
Under the "Rally Point" system, players increasingly need to concentrate on firing heavy smashes towards their opponent's body. But power alone is not enough to guarantee victory. Fast racquet handling is essential to seize the advantage during quick rally points. the ideal racquet must deliver a feeling of real power from a heavy head when smashing, but also feel light and easy to manoevure during short range rallies. Now, YONEX has developed a racquet which combines these new levels of power and handling. This is VOLTRIC.
The new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM technology combines power and handling in a way that has never been seen before. In September 2010, VOLTRIC will unleash a new era of performance into the world of badminton.
