The Nanometric DR carbon graphite box frame design improves the shuttle hold for high repulsion and devastating smashes on the forehand, whilst the Ni-Ti fiber aero frame design allows for increased repulsion and attacking play on the backhand side.
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.
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-center hits.
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
