Yonex's NanoRay Z-Speed is a stiff racquet built for defensive players. The Isometric head shape makes for a forgiving string bed that has excellent repulsion power. The even balance and aerodynamic frame design makes this racquet maneuverable on defense. Deemed the world's fastest racquet in 2013, the Z-Speed set the World Smash Speed Record with an astonishing 493 km/h (by Tan Boon Heong). The aerodynamic frame design decreases air resistance and helps you get a faster swing. Adding to the speed of this racquet is the Compact Frame design. The smaller frame size further reduces unwanted air resistance and improves feel. Players will notice the extra power that can be generated thanks to the inclusion of Sonic Metal (an exceptionally strong and lightweight new titanium alloy) at the top of the frame. This creates higher repulsion power on both attack and defense, and also creates a strong sound when the shuttlecock is hit. X-Fullerene has been incorporated into the frame's shaft for added stiffness and strength. The powerful racquet that can bring any advanced player's game up a level.
