Direct Sports are the #1 Yonex badminton retailer in the UK with more badminton rackets than anyone. Despite many copying, we were the first to introduce online professional custom string upgrades to the UK badminton market in 2005. We retain the latest cut off time for same day despatch of 3pm including re-strings and offer the best next day rates.

Yonex Duora Z-Strike Badminton Racket is made an attacking racket. It blends factors of the Duora range with a similar frame profile to the very powerful Z-Slash. The result is a high power racket with the right balance to play precision control when needed. The Duora uses two frame profiles to achieve the benefits of control and speed depending on which side of the racket is used.

Dual Optimum System - Frame profiles are normally designed around stability, aerodynamics or balance of both. The Dual Optimum System is half stability and half aerodynamic. The two sides of the frame use different profiles, rather than one profile trying to do both jobs.
Stability - On the black side the racket uses a box shape frame to resist torsion and twist for more power transfer and precision.
Aerodynamic - The white side uses an aerodynamic profile with a Nickel-Titanium Fibre running around the crest for strengthen and durability.

Nanometric DR - Nanometric improves the bonding strength between carbon fibres allowing thinner carbon structures to have the same strength as thicker ones that don't use nanometric. Nanometric DR is used the the head of the racket in the box section to provide strength and stability around the head.

Solid Feel Core - A system to reduce the vibration through the racket for comfort and also provides a more robust feel to the racket.

New Grommet System - Two grommet systems are built into the racket design to improve the power and control from the strings. Horizontal-A Concept straightens the angle of the upper cross grommets to move the sweet spot higher and increase power. The Duora grommet strip at the top of the head uses a different tickness around the grommet to aid in the Duora build. A thicker and harder wall is used on the aero side of the frame to stiffen the stringbed for power on impact when the shuttle is struck with the box side.

Control Support Cap is a wider top cap to allow a higher control at the very top of the grip.

Extra Slim Shaft - A thinned shaft for improved aerodynamics allowing a faster swing.

The T-Joint has been improved by adding T-Anchor, a new composite for racket torque reduction from off-centre hits. A foaming agent has been added around the T-Joint to create a tighter join between the frame and T-piece. This improves the stringbed response of the mains by reducing the movement at the centre grommets.

PLEASE NOTE the published tension range for this racket is 20-28lbs, if you chose to have this racket restrung it is most inadvisable to exceed 30lbs.

Please note: The ink used to logo racket strings is semi-permanent, it will wear off during play. Permanent ink damages the coating on the string; this decreases the durability of the string resulting in more tension loss and snapped strings. If you wish to refresh the logo, stencils and ink are available to repaint the design.

This is an independent measure across all brands, allowing a more informed choice about which racket to buy. Each manufacturer supplies the information differently, some weigh and balance the racket with a grip and strings, others don’t.
All rackets are weighed and balanced, on site by us, with the factory grip and strings to give the values of a racket ready for play.
