    I'm looking for a 27.5" (2 hbh), control oriented racket, low flex, arm friendly, over-all good racket.

    I'm thinking of getting a Yonex MP Tour 5 very soon. If you've played with this racket let me know how you liked it (or not). Thanks!!!

    If you know of any other rackets that fits these same specs let me know that too..... Double thanks!!!

    Its a great racquet! I use mine quite a bit. Very flexible and light, so its a little underpowered. But with the right string and a little lead, it is a beast. Serving with the MP Tour 5 is really enjoyable. Pinpoint control and nice pop. The upper hoop is definately a little dead, but with the lead it becomes a non-issue. I highly recommend the MP Tour 5 if you can bring your own power.

    A pretty decent racket. Too light for me overall but very flexible with lots of feel, great control and spin if a little lacking in the power department (I haven't added lead yet). I haven't used it that much, only for about 2 weeks on vacation in the Virgin Islands.

    This racquet was well covered on these boards.
