Features

Yonex Voltric Flash Boost Racket comes with a pack of features aimed at improving the overall experience of the 21st-century badminton player. Although anyone can use the racket, the sophisticated features suggested that high-end users and professionals would benefit the most from this new baby.

You can expect the following features from the new Yonex Voltric Flash Boost Racket.

  • Isometric heavy head-a square shaped head increases the chances of enlarging the sweet spot consequently making a larger part of the string bed responsive.
  • Tri-Voltage system-traditionally, rackets with a heavier head tend to offer more power especially when smashing. However, this compromises the handling speed which in contrast is offered by a lightweight head. Unfortunately, the lightweight head can’t provide enough hitting power therefore in both cases you have to compromise. Good news is that the tri- Voltage system combines both technologies to offer exceptional handling and hitting power.
  • Control support cap - A wider support cap increases maneuverability and better control of the racket.
  • Nanometric- nanoengineering is used to tighten the binding of the carbon fibers which consequently offers increased strength by filling the gaps.
  • Super slim frame-needless to say, it provides exceptional aerodynamics and better head speeds.
  • Aero and Box frame-offers increased head stability.

Why I recommend the Yonex Voltric FB

The Yonex Voltric FB Badminton Racket has exceptional handling capabilities, good smashing power and light enough to switch in between attacks and defense. I also like the aesthetics which for obvious reasons some people would find a plus. The company also offers customization for the racket and the warranty period is impressive as well.

Who’s best suited for the Yonex Voltric FB

Judging from my time with this beauty, I think it’s a racket that can be used by enthusiasts as well as beginners. It might take a while to get used to, but in the end, it’s all worth it. However, looking at the price tag, this would be best suited for intermediate/advanced players because there are other cheap options for beginners.
