    I'm currently using the N90II so hopefully it isn't too big of a transition! I'm hoping to smash some shuttles through my buddies!

    Imop a big step up from the N90II. Feels much more solid, and adds much where the N90II lacked most for me, the power department! To me, the N90II feels as if they had removed some mass from the N90's head, a bit hollow....you're pretty impressive with your smashes already though, so it's not like you need any extra power
    The difference in weight is very noticeable though, but not an unmanageable change. Might take a week or two to adapt, if you're very used to the N90II.

    Playing a normal level doubles match with N90 is far from possible though. In singles it's a very nice racket, but it's jut too slow for doubles.

    Really? I know a guy who uses this as their primary racquet for doubles. I guess it is a little tougher for small quick strokes because of its balance.

    Thank you for the kind comments.
    I will give it a whirl and see how it goes!

    Personally I find small quick strokes easier than with a lot of lighter rackets, what really suffers for me is defense. Drives as well if i have no time for preparation...

    Both of them broke at exactly the same spot on the frame.

    My ego would like to blame my smashes for it... but, sadly, that isn't the truth.
    They collapsed because of improper stringing.

    Of course, that stringer has since lost my patronage.

    Ouch! Because the Rev with the full woven carbon is one sturdy racket.

    There is yet nothing more distinctive and more...well, almost arrogant than a MP99.
    Nice collection there, ol' timer!

    That MP-99 is going on 13 years... it was bought in Hong Kong in 2001.
    (I'll re-check the year the next time I uncover the cone.)

    I have switched to the less expensive Li Ning A-600 now.
    The Yonex AS-50 was a large bargain buy from Taiwan.

    Grip wrapping is not my forte.
    A friend did the 'nicely-wrapped' ones.

    Both he and I are too lazy to cut off the excess lengths.
    As such, we end the tapers high up on the shaft.
