At the 2002 world Masters Games in Melbourne Australia, a Malaysian friend talked with Misbun Sidek and tried out a MP-style prototype MB is going to bring out. The racquet is light, with the balance toward the grip a bit. The paint job is golden yellow and pearl white. I didn't get to hit with it, but took a couple of practice swings. Very nice. Misbun talked about his training techniques with us as well. He trains his players 6 hours a day, starting with slow running for about 1.5 hours and ending the last half hour with springs to build explosive power. Also, he won the gold medal in the 40+ singles, Elite Division. Very nice guy, easy to talk to.
