    I phoned yesterday to National Sports Centre and asked if they carried the MP55. The guy checked and he only found MP50. The MP50 retailed for $60 in change. Is that the real MP50 or 55? Quite inexpensive considering most retailers sell it for just over $100.

    There are MP55 at Edmonton Sportcheck stores, list price $139, on sale for $99. Yonex offered for $88 including GST at the recent local tourney.

    Did you ask if it was Yonex? I don't think that's actually mp-55... national wouldn't import from Japan... (MP-50) and if they did it would cost way more. What's their number...?

    Sportcheck at Calgary Trail. There were 2 left 2 weeks ago. 1 at the west edmonton mall. U might talk to the store manager (Calgary Trail) for a deal that YY had offered.

    MP-55 in Edmonton

    When I went to the Sportchek in West Ed last time they were out of MP-55. Calgary Trail had 2 or 3. And the $99.99 price is without stringing. Stringing cost at SportChek would cost a further 25 or so dollars. Sportchek's wilson hyper carbon 5.0 is not a bad value at $99.99 also. It comes with factory-strung strings. Also, at $99.99 is the Techno Pro Ti-1700. This is pretty cheap considering that it is Techno's highest end titanium racquet, in fact their highest end racquet overall but I have heard it is too heavy and quality can't match other major brands.

    The...

    The National Sports in Scarborough. I asked if he carried MP55. He replied, "I'll go and check." He came back and told me, " I don't have the MP55 but I have MP50." "Retails for $60 something." I was surprised and will go in person to check the racquet out.

    NOpe, just phoned scarbrough national... they don't carry the MP line.

    I'm pretty sure the guy who told u there was mp-50 probably meant iso-50 or something.

    MP-55 is a very good racquet and cheap too for it's quality. Powerful and good control. Head heavy may take some time to get used. Don't get it strung at sport chek.. I heard their stringing sux and 25 bucks is a lot for stringing.. well depending on what string I suppose......

    Nah, I haven't gotten a new racquet yet. The MP-55 is one of my potential choices. I'm still looking around. I still have to see what deals Sweet Spot has for their racquets........

    Well, its no special "deal" that they are making with me. I just want to see their entire assortment of racquets and then compare with other stores such as Sportchek. I haven't been able to go to Edmonton for a while now so I am waiting for the next time I go. But if I see something there that is definitely a good deal compared to other places, I will be sure to post!!

    BTW, does anybody know how much their stringing usually cost and with what kind of strings?

    Are their racquets already strung, or is stringing extra cost?
