    i just got my mp99 3 days ago, when i am use it, sometimes i felt my racquet bent backwards abit when the the racquet hit the birdy. but this problem dosn't happen to my old racquet. so i wonder if this is normal o_O??

    It's supposed to be quite stiff for a mp 99

    One possibility: the MP 99 is a fake...

    1. If you have a strong/fast swing, any racket can be "bent" a bit during the swing/impact.

    2. Double check to make sure your MP99 is the "real deal". :rolleyes:

    I agree, you see pictures of pro's with their racket flexed before impact. also it shows it in the 2006 yonex catalogue on one of their diagrams for new technology.

    ive had a mp99 (real) for 6 months and i have never felt that.
