    Default Yonex MP 88 replacement

    Hey Guys, I was recently at a tournament and was playing a doubles game when i broke my strings. After the match and upon taking a closer look at my racquet I saw that the frame had been cracked. I know that the MP88 isn't being produced anymore so I was looking at buying a replacement for it. My only specifications would be that it had very similar characteristics to the MP88. Let me know what you guys think. thanks in advance,

    Armortec 600, I believe was considered as a replacement for the MP88, might be worth a try, also maybe might be worth to wait for the VT60 which is a replacement for the AT600. (most likely) you can try BS09 as well if you want to try Victor.

    I even could sell you one but this one has many scratches and is used for few years.

    what about Arcsaber 7? It's a tad flexy and even balanced, I thought it was a lot alike

    Thanks a lot! my club and many of its members are sponsored by victor so i could easily try the BS09 out. The amortech 600 looks quite nice also, I'll check them both out. thanks again!

    I was just looking on the yonex website and it doesn't look like they still sell the AT600. Is the AT900technique at all similar?

    AT900T will be considerably stiffer than MP88, AT600, and VT60
    Arc 7 is listed as even balanced and medium stiffness... so still a bit different to MP88 which i think was head heavy and flexible.

    I second to it ~! Arc 7 is medium-flex shaft with head heavy, or 4U VT70 oso close

    thanks guys, I really need a head heavy racquet cause it improves my smash by quite a lot. It's quite weak on its own :P
