    Default Yonex VT7 vs Victor ??? vs Li-ning ???

    Hi,

    I have a Yonex MP88 and recently broke the strings. I really like the characteristics of this racket but itís starting to show its age and Iím thinking about replacing instead of restringing. Iíve always had Yonex rackets and from my research, the VT7 seemed the obvious choice. However after spending some time on the forum, I started reading good things about Victor and Li-ning rackets. Would you recommend either of these over Yonex? If yes, which of their models are closest to the MP88 and cost between GBP £50.00 to £70.00?

    Whilst looking for the specs of the MP88, I noticed it is a pretty well regarded racket. Do you think changing to something like the VT7 is an upgrade or would I be better off restringing the MP88?

    Thanks

    even if you do get a new racket you should still string your mp88.

    Nothing wrong with the actual frame, just more graphite than paint visible around the top edge
