    I played with these for a few years and found them great for my shoulder problem. THey play like a light players racquet with extra power. Do everything well, a good all court frame, nice power and spin on sserves, great for backhand slice and a good topspin racquet as well, also noted for arm safety. The only downside, at least for me, was the 95 head which has a relatively small sweetspot. When you miss it you can shank alot of balls. Hit the sweetspot and it's like butta. I would probably still be playing with these but went to the little lower swingweight and bigger 100 head of a Volkl Cat 8 VE. Recommended.

    The Yonex MP-3i is a traditional players racquet without the weight. The MP-3i will provide the 4.0-6.0 level players a very solid, comfortable frame with controllable power. Yonex' exclusive Muscle Power Technology "rounds the corners", offering the dual benefit of extra frame durability while reducing string vibration for a more solid feel on impact and transfer of full power.

    This racquet is from the era where Yonex weight varied by grip size (maybe we're still in that era). I was suprised that when I finally got around to weighing my 5/8 mp3i at work, with supergrap and a vib dampener it weighed in at 12.2. I later switched to a 1/2 grip with the same set up which weighed in around 11.7. So that 11.2 weight cited in the stats is a bit misleading, maybe it applies to a 3/8 with no overgrip.
