    I have seen this racket before somewhere. I'm sure its not yonex. He is using other brand. But just had a yonex logo on the strings. Can't really remember the name. but i does look familiar. When was this picture taken?

    are you sure it is not the lighting? still can be a MP99 considering he looks like he is sponsored by Yonex.

    it can't be a mp99 since in the pic, the shaft is whiter than the lower head. No idea what racquet it is though.

    the guy is wearing yonex shirt, short, socks, shoes, and yy logo on string. I really can't see him using a non yonex racket. Like kwun said, lighting may have distorted the color of the racket shaft..

    That's Ronald Susilo.
    The last time I saw him, he was using an MP99.
    So I believe its the lighting.

    Guys, I think the racquet is another version of AT500.

    hey guys...think its the same Fleet racquet as the 1 i own...Ti Roller Muscle Power RP90L...has the same yellow paint as well as the top black paint, or it could just be an mp99 but shot at a weird angle.

    Fleet even have a copy of the YY MP100, called - wait for it - the Rollerball Ti Roller Power RP9800. How do they come up with such snappy names?

    It's not an AT-500. AT-500 does not have any yellow on the racquet. I think it's a Mp 99, just the angle of the photo makes it look different.

    would a magnification and colour adjustment help out?

    Compare the shaft colour with the bird and the net's tape. Compare the yellow head-bottom to the yellow grip.

    here's a side by side. It does look like a mp99. The shaft color is probably just a reflection of the light. Everything matches up pretty well.

    It may just look thicker because of the angle
