    I can't take a picture of the serial number because of the grip. Hope those pictures are enough but just tell me if you want more

    Given the blurry pics, better check out the phone is not fake too.

    As for the racket, check the length of the racket. Real MP99 only come in the Yonex long length. Also compare the YY logo at the t-joint to a genuine racket (any model). For some perculiar reason the fake makers always make that logo look quite obviously wrong.

    it's not the fault of the cellphone, the problem is that there is 'camera' shake because you aren't holding the phone steady.

    i saw the rackets at a local shop today.
    The MP99 has the solid plastic grommet strip like yoyomonkey vbmenu_register("postmenu_417038", true); said.
    The pictures showed like a MP100 but with MP99 painting.!
    wow, painting a racket is not a easy job.

    This Muscle Power is obviously a fake...It doesn't have the muscle power strap....it should look like this...

    Good observation. I've seen several fake mp99 and all doesn't have engraved serial number. Everything else looks like the real thing except of course the grommets which you noticed. Anyways these fakes are sold really cheap : less than usd25.

    the other grommets should be in a square shaped too, i think those in the pic are round...it's way too blurry, try to move the phone back a bit to focus better

    What happens if the solid plastic grommet breaks? Can the stringer replace that type of grommet? :confused:
