Rackets used to be made in two separate parts (frame and shaft) which were joined with an external T-joint.
Nowadays they are made in one-piece, with an internal T-joint for added strength and torsional stability.
Regardless of whether the T-joint itself actually makes all that much difference, the only rackets you can buy now with external T-joints, are very cheap, low quality rackets.

Sorry, but if you look at any major brand (Yonex/Carlton/Victor/Li Ning/etc) only their very low-end models use external T-joints.
Obviously there are going to be a few exceptions if you look hard enough. Also, there are probably old high-end models which used external T-joints, but which are still very good rackets.

Maybe the OP should specify the racket model instead of the general design. There are tons of different brands out there, someone's meat is someone else's poison.

Is this a joke? If it is ignore my analysis... lol..
Well... external T Joints are a old fashioned concept. Normally found on cheaper rackets, they are a cheap way for manufacturers to create a strong bond between the racket shaft and head.
Cheaper racket cost, and in turn hopefully cheaper retail price. Strong and sturdy. Heavier at head.
Heavier at head. To an extent reduces aerodynamics of the racket. Can loosen and allow head to move. Too cheaply made will mean the can come off.
Whether it is good or bad is not so much an issue as long as your racket matches and enables you to play at your full potential :-D
Hope this Helps :-)
