About the Nanoflare series

A racket designed for speed. The Nanoflare (replaces the Nanoray range) is designed for speed to meet the needs of defensive and doubles players. The balance is more towards the grip for a speedier swing and better handling to put more speed on the shuttlecock.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour weight: 83 g - 4U (80-84 g)

The weight (actually the mass) is measured in grams. Racket weights range from 60 g to over 100 g. They are grouped into weight categories expressed in "U". The lighter the racket, the more comfortable and easier it will be to handle. It will put less stress on your arm and feel faster to swing. The heavier the racket, the more power you'll get.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour flex: Extra stiff

Flexibility is defined as the shaft's capacity to bend while hitting. Shafts can range from flexible to stiff. The more flexible the shaft, the more forgiving and comfortable it will be. It will also help you hit longer shots. The stiffer the shaft, the more repulsion power and precision you'll get, but you'll also need to be able to swing quickly. You should also keep in mind that a stiff racket is not very forgiving.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour balance: Head light

Balance refers to the racket's weight distribution. It is indicated in millimetres and is measured from the base of the handle to the balance point. A head-light racket will be more manoeuvrable and responsive, making it perfect for defensive and doubles players. Head-heavy rackets will provide more power, making them the ideal choice for offensive players. However, they can feel heavy and difficult to swing.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour composition: HM Graphite

The price of a badminton racket is affected by its composition. Steel and/or aluminium rackets are sturdy, heavy and better suited to recreational use. Graphite/aluminium and full graphite rackets are lightweight and perfect for beginner and intermediate players. Finally, rackets made from High-Modulus Graphite and other materials like tungsten are designed for advanced players.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour Length: 675 mm

The length of an adult's racket is measured in millimetres and ranges from 660 mm to 680 mm. Only the length of the racket shaft varies. The shorter the shaft, the easier it will be to handle and the better the feel. A longer shaft will give you a higher swingweight for added power.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour grip size: G5 small (80-84 mm)

Grip size is measured in millimetres. Grip size varies from 75 mm to over 90 mm and is categorised into size ranges expressed in "G". While a larger grip is easier to hold, it can make changing your grip more difficult. A smaller grip is easier to wield and lets you put more power on the racket by using your fingers.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour factory strings

Rackets come pre-strung with Yonex multifilament string with a gauge of 0.70 mm.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour factory tension: 8-9 kg/17.5-20 lbs

Tension is expressed in kilograms (kg) or pounds (lbs). The rackets will have a tension of 8 to 9 kg/17.5 to 20 lbs depending on tension loss due to external conditions.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour recommended tension: 9-12.5 kg/20-28 lbs

Every brand recommends a maximum tension for their rackets to prevent the string or frame from breaking while stringing or hitting. Some rackets have a reinforced frame that can take a tension of up to 16 kg/35 lbs.

Nanoflare 1000 Tour string pattern: 22⨯21

The string pattern is indicated with the number of vertical strings ⨯ the number of horizontal strings. In badminton, these are referred to as mains ⨯ crosses. A more closed string pattern will give you greater power and comfort, but the strings won't last as long.

Stringing instructions for 76 holes with the first cross at A8: A = top, B = bottom

4 knot stringing instructions. Mains: start from top centre and string down to B9 (skip holes T8 and T10). Go through B12 towards T15, then go back to T13, down to B10 and finish by tying off at B8. (same other side)

Crosses: Make a knot at B6 and start crosses from B9. Keep on stringing the crosses until T8 (skip holes T11 and T9) and finish by tying a knot at T5.

Nanocell Neo

A durable yet surprisingly flexible graphite material that gives you more accuracy


Frame with an aerodynamic head profile to reduce air resistance, resulting in faster shots

Compact Frame

Smaller head size for greater accuracy


The Isometric design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. A square-shaped Isometric racket creates a larger sweet spot than a classic round frame by optimizing the intersection of the mains and crosses.

Sonic Flare system

New ultra-thin, flat profile that deforms upon impact with the shuttlecock to give your shots more speed


A very slim shaft reduces air resistance and is more reactive for faster rallies


The new top cap maximizes shaft performance. The front optimizes shaft flex and allows for maximum use of the Namd material. The arch-shaped curve stabilizes the racket's frame, preventing the shaft from twisting


A high-performance shaft precisely designed with an original Yonex moulding technique. Improves your hitting performance.


The built-in T-joint reinforces the connection between the shaft and frame while reducing twisting for greater control

EX-Hyper MG

New elastic graphite for more powerful drive shots


an extra stiff, durable material is used on the holes on the bottom of the racket to prevent warping and improve performance.
