    the mp 100 isnt as good as the mp 88 or 99....it may be the highest of the models but u must work with it for a pretty long time to acheive its highest potential...i think the mp 77 88 and 99 are a little better...

    mp 77 - power
    mp 88 - control + power
    mp 99 - control + power + finesse

    that is my experience..

    The MP100 is quite stiff and is seems difficult to use properly. However it is a great racquet- I prefer the MP99 which is stiff too but centre balanced whereas the MP100 is head heavy.
    The MP77 is medstiff and heavier than 100/99 . Maybe good for people having trouble generating power.
    I've only tried MP88 a couple of times and it seems to lack power, but it's light+flexible combo makes it ood for defense

    Hummm, I beg to differ. MP-100 is a balanced racquet.

    I have MP-88, MP-99 and MP-100.
    MP-100 has more power
    MP-99 has more control

    I've had mine for about two months now... it's the first 2u racquet I've used; my previous racquets were Carltons (Powerflo Plus, AS-1).

    It's definitely a powerful racquet, and it does give overhead shots added "punch", but I haven't quite adjusted to it yet as I can't smash that well with it - not that I'm a great smasher anyway Mine is strung at 26lb and I find it gives very good control, great for drops.

    At first I didn't notice the extra weight (about 10g heavier than the Carltons) but these days I can feel it when trying to move the racquet quickly to intercept smashes, etc... I think I would like to try an MP99 as it's supposed to be more manoeverable. Anyone fancy a swap?

    When I picked up the MP100 bare it seemed head heavy and I tried many racquets that were also MP100 just to make sure this racquet I had was different from the others.

    From what I heard it is quite a power generator but it might not have the control that the MP99 has.

    A great racket with lots of power and good control. The timing seems to be different from the most other rackets and takes time to adjust to.

    Yes, for me I had a period initially when I really wan't happy with it. I found it heavy and clumsy, and generally hard to come to terms with. After a period of time however, things just "clicked". I've been using it for over two years and I wouldn't swap it for anything. It handles better than any other racquet I've had, both in terms of power and control. OK, on "weak" days, I've been known to resort to a lighter racquet, but that is becoming increasingly rare. The MP-100 is definitely my "desert island racquet".
