    awsome racquet man, its my main racquet stringed with bg 68 ti @ 20 lbs with a BK tuf overgrip:D

    performance is good, durability is good control is awsome since its light and getting smashes are easy. the power cant keep up with the high end racquets but if u got skillz, u wont need it. smashes has greatly improved compared 2 my old iso 52 mf:cool:

    thx man. actually i bought that racket but end up i gave it to one of my friend.
    i would say it isn't bad but i've found that mp88 is better in my hand eventhough i believe that they are a bit similar in performance. now my main rackets are my three mp88(s).

    i used to have 4 but one of them was broken after a clash.
    i believe the racket price here in hk is a bit lower than in north america. so whenever u stop by. take a few back home. :)

    Hi everyone, the Yonex MP-27 is a pretty good racquet. It use to be my main racket for both singles and doubles. It has great smashing power if strung correctly. I prefer using BG68ti, BG80 or BG85 at about 22 lbs. I didnt wanna go over this as many stringers said the life of this racket will be cut short if strung too highly.

    Anyways after about a year of playing with this racket I felt that it lacked head stability at times which affected my control. It still smashes great though, very light and good for defence as well.

    I currently use this racket only for doubles now, and have got a backup MP-27 as well. Its a medium flex racket and is good for players who dont have as much wrist power to use heavier and stiffer rackets.

    I currently now use an Armortec 500 for singles as I feel its has more control than the MP-27. However for me it has less smashing power, but its ok cause I dont mind the trade-off between power for more control for singles.
