Last week I clashed my mp 99 while i was warming up with a friend.... $200 down the drain!!! Well so neways, the next day I got another 99, but it was a fake ($20 US). I could tell since the serial # on the racket wasn't engraved, but painted on. And there wern't even any of those red muscle power bump things. I played with it yesterday and although i don't like to say it.........IT PLAYS MUCH BETTER!
