Anyone knows about this yamaha stick? How is it difference from secret line?

I play with it for 2-3 hrs today. Feeling is unique, pop, stable and in term of feeling is different from other midplus racquet which I used to play. The throat labels 306-320 g.

Yamaha Proto 05 MP (95 sq in)

If someone knows about its spec, please let me know.

Thanks, ขอบคุณครับ

Look like Dunlop midplus mold with 16*18 string pattern.

looks like the secret 04 mold, and similar graphic lettering...to farang the prefix "PROTO" means test...sometimes test racquets have similar fonts and graphics to the actual racquet, this one has too many commercial colors and words though to be a test raq, probably just a really good powerful Yamaha...gooogle search showed a proto 03, now companies are dead, racquets are sad, wandering without a job, home or wife....bring them home (to plasmas house!!!)

Yamaha have always made quality racquets, and who would thought we'd see 3 Yamaha threads in a row:)

Thanks everyone,

In my point of view, Yamaha tennis racquet is good quality. Paint job looks quite nice for me but I confuse about its shape. I can't feel comfortable when I swing the racquet. In the other hand feel during hitting is good, I love it. :)

Give it three smiles out of five (:):):))

Thanks Plaz for your qiuz: I have not ever known about word "Proto" before.

Meaning:

Indicating the first or earliest or original

Context example:

'proto' is a combining form in a word like 'protolanguage' that refers to the hypothetical ancestor of another language or group of languages

Proto was the name used in Japan and other countries, I think, for the line of racquets known in the United States as Secret.
