The latest head-light series from YONEX, NANORAY provides a fast and controlled swing with enhanced repulsion via the New Aero Frame. NANORAY is designed for players who force their opponents into the back of the court with extreme speed. The thinner top of the frame sides minimize air resistance for greater head speed, while the thicker sides at the bottom of the head generate maximum repulsion through greater frame stiffness.
X-FULLERINE combined with SONIC METAL produces a fast and controlled swing that generates powerfully accurate, rapid-fire shots.

The new generation X-Fullerene has 4 radial ribs which unite carbon atoms to form a football-like structure. The X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the carbon fibres and creates the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create 5% higher repulsion power and 15% greater stability.

SONIC METAL is an exceptionally strong, lightweight and flexible new titanium alloy which YONEX positions at the top of the frame. This has two advantages. Firstly, it gives you a higher repulsion power, especially in attack. Secondly, it creates a clear strong sound when the shuttlecock is hit.
This acoustic, combined with the dramatic increase in repulsion, will put your opponent under immediate pressure.
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 single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
Decreases air resistance and realizes a quicker swing.
‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
The slimmest racquet ever produced by Yonex vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
