Yonex Astrox 100 ZZ vs Yonex Astrox 99 Pro

The Yonex Astrox 100 ZZ and Astrox 99 Pro are two of Yonex’s most popular badminton rackets as they are endorsed by top players like Viktor Axelsen, Akane Axelsen, and Kento Momota.

Both rackets are better suited to intermediate to advanced players as they would not be suited to beginners.

In this article, I will be looking at the racket specs of the Astrox 100 ZZ (or “100ZZ”) and the Astrox 99 Pro (or “99P”) to see how these two badminton rackets compare to each other.
