MP99 in UK
I just broke my favorite MP99 last night . It's a GR 3U G3 version which I bought incidentally here. It is difficult to find a replacement in this region of the world but can only get it by chance.
I love this racket so much and would really want to get a replacement. I've checked that I can order it from centralsports.co.uk (it costs almost double than buying a MP99 SP here ...) but it seem that they only offer one weight. Can anyone confirm that all MP99 being sold in UK are 3U version ? Thx.

You may add more overgrips or use replacement grip over the original one.

If you still want a 3U G3 size, I can do it for you for HK$100 (excluding the cost of the racquet and strings), by increasing a G4 to a G3 with a minimal weight increase of no more than 1-2gm, but is guaranteed to be still within the 3U classification of 85-89gm (w/o strings).

Yes, all UK MP99 are the same weight and only come in 3U.

PS two month ago they were in some kind of price war with directsports.com and the mp99 was as cheap as 80 or 75 pounds, but for some reason they price went up back to 89 pounds. Must be do to with supply and demand, as they were running out of inventory.

of course you can get MP-99 3U/G3 GR here in Germany.
Normal store price is about 115 Euro,
but from time to time there are some MP-99 listed on ebay,
which sell for 85 Euro (unstrung):
I just bought 4 MP-88 rackets for 75 Euro per piece from them.
Shipping to HK will additionally cost you about 30 Euro,
so you would end up at 115 Euro (equals appr. 1080 HK$).
Overall quite pricey, but the shipping charge covers 1 - 4 kg,
so you could go for more rackets without increasing the shipping costs.

As far as I know GR version only comes in 3G.
The only 4G rackets I've found here in Germany are 4U rackets.

Ricky, I can get you an MP99 3U G4 or G5 in Hong Kong for less than HK$900, inclusive of BG85 or BG68ti strings. Why pay more to buy from Europe? You can increase a G4 or G5 to a G3 with an overgrip which will not affect the dynamic balance point or the pick-up weight, which are what really counts instead of static balance point, the latter actually a meaningless measurement.

Actually I bought 7 MP90/99 so far and still keep 4 of them (3 of them have been broken). Among all these MP9x, the MP99 3U G3 GR is the one I love the most and I've adpated to it since I bought it. Unfortunately it was broken a few days ago.
Since I've so many MP9x (for those long time BC friends, they should know how many rackets I've ), I know how other MP9x play and I also know I can change the grip size myself, but the point is, I really love the balance and feel of the 3U G3 version and I want an exact replacement.
Fortunately, I found that again in Rose sports two days ago and bought two (HK$860 each w/o string).
Well ... my coach did tell me before that a small grip size is better for control, but I just feel more comfortable with the large grip size.
Anyway, thx for advice from all of you.
