    Hello everyone, this is my 2nd post. Please give me advise if you got one. Please and thank you :D

    My friend is planning to buy a new racquet, and my friend loves my musclepower 100. But my friend can't afford musclepower 100 (expensive plus it's hard to get them). I was wondering if there's any yonex racquet that has exact or similiar quality as mp100. if there is, or if you have any advise for me to decide what racquet my friend should get, please tell me. Thank you in advance!!!

    Yonex won't have a brother of MP100 in terms of exact or similar spec and feel. However, other racquet producing manufactures may have.

    well, you can look at the arc10. it has a closer feel than most other rackets to teh MP-100.

    I feel the SOTX CP5000 has a similar feel to the MP100 but not sure how much it cost in your part of the world.

    MP Ltd

    What about Muscle Power Ltd, the guy at shop i went said, its a upgraded version of MP99, more stiff than MP99, but cheaper and durable. I am not sure what he said is true or not, eventually i bought Aspac.

    MP Ltd

    For sure, MP ltd is a cheaper version of MP99, but we are not sure about the other attributes of the racket, in terms of the power, control, stiffness etc.

    also, my friend's SISTER also wants new racquet and she likes mp100 too. since arc 10's good, do you guys think arc 9 will be good too?

    well, if she likes the MP100, chances are the ARC 9 will feel a bit too flexy for her tastes. however, if she also likes an Arcsaber for a racket, i would reccomend a 7, as it does not feel too much stiffer, but it also has a lot more control and power imo.
