In this article we will make the Nanoflare 370 Speed review, which was launched in early 2019 along with other rackets of the same series, aiming to replace the old Nanoray.
Having said that, you probably already know that she is a head-light racket, focused on speed and that her primary target are doubles players or depending on the style, some female players.
The Nanoflare 370 is designed to be the version of racquets of this series with more power of smash, something that ends up making many players do not choose these rackets but other heavier or with more head weight which helps one more powerful smash through weight transfer.
This is a racket that until the day of this review is not very popular and there are no great opinions formed about it, so we believe that any additional information will be very useful as a possible buyer.
Here at Nanoflare 370 Speed review, we will show you what some of the features of this racquet are, implemented technologies, pros, cons.
Ready? Let’s go then.
YONEX Nanoflare 370 Speed Review
See below your specifications given by the manufacturer:
|Frame||H.M. Graphite / Nanocell Neo / EX-HMG|
|Weight / Grip Size:|| 5U (Ave.78g) G4, 5
4U (Ave.83g) G4,5
Unlike the Astrox, the Nanoflare 700 has an Aero Frame that prioritizes the speed of its movements and the ability to cut the air more easily, being thinner at the ends rather than more square as in the Box Frames.
It is also worth mentioning that the frame despite being thinner than usual is also wider, which supposedly helps to improve further its ability to control.
Super Slim Frame
As you can expect, with the Nanoflare 370 being a speed-focused racket, it is quite thin on its frame to have as little air resistance as possible and thus allow the player to make more quick and precise movements.
Another feature of this racket and a difference to other Nanoflares is that it has a stiff shaft than the others, thus allowing, in theory, a higher transfer of power and consequently the ability to execute a more powerful smash.
By having this form, the spacing between the ropes is the same, which makes your beat is much more consistent even when it does not strike precisely in the center of the racket, thus significantly improving its control.
A badminton game is not just strength and smashes. If you do not have consistency in your game, you will lose all points even without the opponent using a smash.
It is also composed of a special type of graphite and was introduced in the market through some rackets in this series, with Nanoflare 370 being one of them.
Other features we can point to are:
- Aero + Box frame;
- Built T-Joint;
- Slim Shaft;
- Energy Boost Cap;
Now we’ll look at your performance across the various types of bids and see what your strengths and weaknesses are.
Being a top YONEX racket, it could not fail in the most basic and essential movement of badminton …
Clears are easily made to the back of the court when used the correct technique and without starting to feel fatigued with ease, something that with some head-heavy balanced rackets some players end up complaining in longer games or long rallies.
Being stiffer can help you have better control of the shuttlecock when you want to do a drop shot, especially if you are more accustomed to rackets with this feature.
As it is a light racket, it is quite easy to do this movement and also to do faints in a way that tries to deceive the opponent by masking their movement.
The biggest advantage that this racket should have compared to its “sister” Nanoflare 700 is in smashes, where the stiff shaft should improve the power that the player can use more easily.
The truth is that this difference exists but is minimal, not being a significant deciding factor.
Nanoflare is a well-balanced and lightweight racket, so any doubles player should not have any complaints about the performance concerning their speed.
What some may not like is that it is stiff. Although it helps in smashes, the move to get up in response to a smash or net kills gets a bit weaker because of the lack of flexibility, which is an issue to take into consideration and we recommend you test.
YONEX Nanoflare 370 Speed
We rated this racket as a cheaper alternative to the Nanoflare 700, which may appeal to intermediate players or just not willing to spend so much money on a racquet.
In terms of performance is quite consistent. We do not recommend it for single players except for rare exceptions (or feminine sex players with a more defensive style of play), but if it is a doubles player, it is a balanced racket that delivers results both in the game near the net and at the back of the court.
If you have read other reviews, you know that we recommend whenever you try the racket before buying if possible because what is true for one player may not be totally equal for the other. Game styles and preferences can significantly affect the perception you may have of a racket.
