Yonex NANOFLARE 380 Sharp (NF-380SH) badminton racket is a racket designed for incredible speed to support aggressive play and rapid-fire rallies.
This racket is for intermediate to advanced players looking to command the game with maximum speed and effortless force.
Almost similar in design as the made-in-Japan high-end version Nanoflare 800, Nanoflare 380 Sharp 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'.

Sonic Flare System
The revolutionary highly strong yet elastic graphite TORAYCAR M40X and SUPER HMG provide unrivalled 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 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 Grommet Pattern||The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.|
|Aero + Box Frame||Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.|
|Built-in T-Joint||Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX Built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.|
|Ultra Slim Long Shaft||
The Thinnest Ever with More Power
Inserting NANOPREME into the racket shaft ensures greater stability compared to conventional rackets. When bending and releasing two rackets under the same force, the Ultra Slim Long Shaft rebounds almost twice as far as a conventional racket does in the same length of time (0.018 seconds). This equates to 10% greater stability compared with conventional rackets.
|Control Support Cap||The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.|
