The Yonex Astrox 99 LCW is intended for the advanced/professional player and offers more power with every stroke. The Astrox 99 LCW uses a new type of graphite throughout the racket, named NAMD. The biggest improvement of this new material is that the handle shoots back faster at the moment of striking so that higher speeds can be achieved with the smashes. Because the entire racket is made with this material, the contact time with the shuttle is doubled, making the strokes more explosive than ever. This 'Head Heavy' racket is suitable for attacking players who want extra power in the smashes. The stiff handle offers players very much control during the rallies.
The Yonex Astrox 99 LCW is equipped with a new Yonex technology, called the 'Rotational Generator System'. This means that the weight distribution is not only at the top but also in the handle. The racket blade adjusts to each beat, giving you more control while hitting a drive and beating your opponent with a faster, sharper and more powerful smash. The racket also has a very thin handle, which makes the racket fly through the air even more aerodynamically.
The Yonex Astrox 99 LCW has a new color scheme. The orange with black has been replaced by a green with purple color chosen by Lee Chong Wei himself.
