The company was founded in 1946 by Minoru Yoneyama as a producer of wooden floats for fishing nets. The company was later forced out of this market because of the invention of plastic floats. This led to a commitment by Yoneyama to never again be left behind by technological advancements. In 1957, Yoneyama began to make badminton racquets for other brands. By 1961, the first Yoneyama branded racquet was introduced, and within another two years an export company was created for the worldwide distribution. After the company began to make aluminum badminton racquets in 1969, it found that the same technology could be applied to the tennis racquet which the company introduced in 1971. The company began to experiment with graphite shafts for both types of racquets and found that these would also be useful for golf clubs. Finding a growing market, the Yonex Corporation (a wholly owned subsidiary) was established in Torrance, California in July 1983. In 1992 Yonex introduced the widebody racquet the "Isometric 500", a racquet that was much less "tear drop" shaped than previous racquets. The more "square" head of the racquet gave it a much larger striking surface, which provides a larger "sweet spot" to hit the shuttle. It led other manufacturers to follow suit in "square-head" or isometric designs. The parent company was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 1994. Despite it's shrinking market share in badminton, Yonex remains the biggest badminton company in the world. Yonex provides clothing for numerous national badminton associations around the world, such as the Malaysian Badminton Association, Badminton Scotland, Badminton England, Badminton Ireland and Badminton Wales.



The Yonex Carbonex 21 and Carbonex 20 badminton racquet set the standards in the late 80's for quality and power graphite racquet. Still favorite racquet for many advanced players, Yonex re-introduce the Carbonex 21 with a new color. Excellent power and control - standard of Carbonex series.

Solid resonance and feel on impact, the hallmark of the famous Carbonex Series' Box Shape, continue to make these powerful racquets favorites among many top pros. The Box Shape construction suppresses twisting on impact for more power and accuracy.

Carbonex series racquets has stiff and powerful box construction for high power and consistent control that has made Carbonex Racquets the long-time favorites of hard hitters. Carbonex series racquets are famed for durability and low-torque performance springing from the strong box-like cross section and patented Yonex Built-in T-Joint, which functions to provides a consistently stable hitting surface for power and control. The Yonex patented Built-in T-joint transmits the full energy from the shaft to the frame then to the shuttlecock.

At impact, the area where the shaft and frame are connected is subjected to an enormous stress load. If left unchecked, a racquet's power is loss and control diminished through distortion. 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. The patented construction results in more power and more accuracy smash after smash.
