Question about MP99 GR version
Hi guys, I just bought a secondhand MP99 GR version. The weirdest thing about the racket is that shaft series no. and cone series no. do not stay close to each other. In fact, they stay on each side of the racket. The cone series locate on one side, and the shaft series on the other side. Luckily, the no. are all engraved, i can feel that.
I never seen any YY rackets like that, not even the low-end models or the very old ones. Is there any one here have a MP GR version to compare for me, please!!! Any reasons why it is that?
Thanks for all your feedback

Can you post a picture? The shaft should have serial number and cone should have date code of ddmmy#GR on your racquet.

cone came off, previous owner glued it back, not knowing the original position.

Are you guys serious??? Can they glue the cone together? Holy potatoes !!! How does that affect the racket performance?
What if they glued the cone and shaft at the wrong position?
Apart from that, i dont feel any thing unusual about the racket when holding it, but still have not played with it yet. By re-gluing it, does it mean the racket is no longer in good conditions to play?
The ex-owner never mentioned any thing about this. He just said "it is a "German" thing "
I will try to post the pic of it if possible.

gluing back a cone that's come loose should not affect the performance of the racquet significantly. it's only a small bit near the handle and is pretty light, so i doubt you'll notice any difference playing with that and playing with a normal one.

I am a little confused here about the shaft,cone and handle. What I am concerning is the shaft and the handle. Did the shaft and handle become loose or deattached somehow, then they tried to re-fit them back and positioned them incorrectly, resulting series no. on the shaft and the cone are not lined up together? Or was it just that the cone became loose and they glued it back, while shaft and handle are still in piece together?
I check the contact point between the shaft and the handle and see there are some marks of paint chipped off.

they were just talkign bout the plastic used to cover the cone area so u dno't see the wood handle
that plastic come lose rather common
most ppl just glue it back on
any racket maker with common sense would do everything making sure the shaft won't come lose with the handle as that would means firing a missile at your opponent.. (usually there would be a screw that go through the shaft and the handle alltogether) so u shouldn't be too worry about that happening

Well if you do not like the imperfect position, you could take time to re-align and glue it if you like.
