The Yonex Nanoflare Drive badminton racket is one of Yonex’s Nanoflare Series rackets.
This badminton racket is designed specially for beginner to intermediate players looking for easy maneuverability in a racket.
It has a flexible shaft racket that will deliver more power even for beginners, as it will have a kind of sling shot effect.
“Wide” body shape helps this racket to have solid structure and stability, which creates a solid hitting feel. Besides that, it also has super slim frame for super quick swing.
Similar in design as the made in Japan high-end version Nanoflare 700, Nanoflare Drive is also built with Sonic Flare System using a material called TORAYCA(r) M40X, a next-generation highly strong, yet elastic carbon fiber developed by Toray Industries, Inc (one of world’s leading innovation companies specializing in R&D and manufacturing of industrial material). The new carbon fiber creates a stable yet highly repulsive head shape and aero-dimensional shape to compress and ‘snap back’.
This racket is also made from a new resilient yet surprisingly flexible graphite material called the Nanocell Neo.

Sonic Flare System
The revolutionary highly strong yet elastic graphite TORAYCAR M40X and SUPER HMG provide unrivaled power and stability for maximum shuttle acceleration.
Improved shot speeds by positioning high modulus graphite at the top and bottom of the frame. SUPER HMG graphite utilized at the top of the frame, and the new carbon fiber TORAYCA® M40X, along the bottom greatly improves the stability of the frame and the repulsion performance of the racket.
Nanocell Neo A resilient yet surprisingly flexible graphite material
The new Aero Frame is both highly aerodynamic, allowing for fast and easy swings, while maintaining a profile that allows the frame to compress on impact with the shuttle, and snap back, much like a trampoline, launching the shuttle from the face of the racket.
Decreases air resistance and realizes a quicker swing combining “wide” body shape to get solid structure, creates a solid hitting feel and quick swing.
The square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
New Built-in T-Joint ‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
Control Support Cap The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racket for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
Super Slim Frame This thin frame provides greater head speed and a solid feel.
