Pros

Cons

  • It has a black and white color combination. Though the color doesn’t have anything to do with the performance, if you like the glossy color combination, then this is not a good option for you.
  • A tad slower through the air, I reckon.

Yonex Duora Z-Strike is another extraordinary production from Yonex, many professional players have accepted that. Players like Vitor Axelsen, Lin Dan, Carolina Marin used this racket and found it a perfect fit for them.

It implements all the modern technologies that Duora 10 implements. I mentioned those while I reviewed the Duora 10.

This one is a 3U category racket, which is an ideal weight range for all sorts of players. 

As this is a G4 style grip, so you should expect a slightly bigger grip. I love big grip because it gives me reasonable control over the racket. 

However, if you want a G5 style grip, you can always remove the onboard grip and replace it with a new G5 grip. 

The recommended string tension of this racket is between 20 lbs to 28 lbs. That is something that makes this one a versatile weapon for intermediate players. 

Aesthetically it’s a good one, I believe. It has a combination of black and white color that makes it simple yet professional. 

While this is an evenly balanced racket, at the same time, I should mention, I found it a tad head heavy one. Overall, it doesn’t make any significant impact on the mixture of power and control, though.

Verdict

I must say, this one is an excellent addition to the Yonex Duora family, with very little increase in price. 

As a whole, you won’t regret buying this badminton racket for an intermediate or an advanced player. 

It offers all it takes to perform remarkably with both backhand and forehand.
