    Agree. MP99 is definitely more user-friendly than NS9000X.

    I believe NS9000 series have some durability problem . Some ppl in this forum have them cracked so fast. (Mostly are NS9000S though, but It's probable that the NS9000X have the same problem ).

    So if your choice is between MP99 and NS9000 I would recommend MP99.

    Well... do you buy racket for paint job or to swing it?

    Take the MP99. The NS9K is too fragile. You may break it and end up purchasing another racquet anyway. Not a problem if money is not a problem, but it'll also be wasting your time too.. time is precious

    Final question! It comes with a choice of free restringing. I understand that it has BG65Ti already, but these are the alternatives:
    BG80, BG68Ti, BG85, Nanogy 95.

    Also a free grip, from these (no idea what they are..) Yonex AC420 and AC102.

    ?

    my advice, take the 80. tried, true, and over all feel good string.
    if you dont believe look here , where you can also review other string as well

    uh, as for grips, no idea

    My recommendation will be BG66, I myself used BG68Ti and NBG95, but I believe I'm going to try BG66 too, Haven't try all of them , so I believe DinkALot's review will be very useful to check next xD.

    Just one thing... BG66 is more fragile T_T xD... So BG80 is pretty wise.

    (Edited because I saw BG66 is better in Durability )

    Anyway I forget to tell you, it's possible that you have different feeling or can't even feel it . Since my opinion is String is just like racket, experience may vary . So if you dislike one string, don't hesitate to try another. Just one thing. The thicker the string, "supposedly" the higher the durability.

    Good Luck with the string .

    Aish, the website that I was going to buy the MP99 from is sold out now.. and they're discontinued so they won't be getting them back in. So no more free string, free grip, free name inscription

    I managed to get the MP99 from tennisnuts.com, after first trying ukrackets.com and centralsports.co.uk.. but the MP and some SHB100 Ltds should be on their way to me right now

    Wow... Nice pick xD... But I'm currently trying Indonesian's Shoes Branded RS (Reinforced Speed), since the Yonexes around here is poor T_T... And the Recommended store from someone in this forum is right across town from my area T_T... Geez, can't even manage time to get there xD... But so far I'm satisfied with this brand, since the factory is experienced in making shoes for big brands as well ... So, the outcome is excellent for a 30$ shoes xD. (the 10$s version is said to be equal with a 25$ Yonex in Indonesia).

    Erm, whatever the factory string tension is.. I didn't get that free restringing offer in the end, so the strings are standard BG65 Ti.

    On a side note.. the Yonex logo paint comes off very easily
