    As we know currently you are using Mp99. Do you have any plans changing to other Yonex Models like AT700? Have you tried them? What makes MP99 suitable for you? Thanks.

    Actually now you mention it, do you choose which racket you play with, or does your sponsor (Yonex?) tell you which one to play with. Also do you choose which model of shoes you wear?

    MP99

    Hi Ants and James!!

    I thought from the start when I changed to Yonex that the MP99 was a great racket. I´ve not tried new rackets since because I´m very happy with my yellow power racket.

    I think it has the right the right weight, not too heavy or too light. When I played with Forza the racket I used was very light and I think MP99 gave me more firepower from behind and maybe a little more control of the shuttle.

    Kind Regards

    Jonas

    My own decision!!

    What I wear is basically my own decision. The only time Yonex interferes is when they have a new model they want to promote if I´m in a semifinal or final.

    Also Thanks JR,

    So you decided to use MP-99 Then, they didnt say only use top end rackets (MP 70+)?


    Thanks for spending time to help us out,

    James

    Not sure!

    I´m not quite sure what you mean by top end racket.

    It was the best of the Yonex rackets that I tried at the moment and they didn´t decide which one I had to use. I decided for myself.

    JR,

    Could you give us a review of the MP-100? Was it too heavy for you in your final decision?

    Jonas, how many different rackets did you try before you pick the MP99?
