Why would engraving a different letter into the cone affect the racket?

i thought it meant that they were manufactured in different places and hence a change in quality !

They are
When I went to shop for an Arcsaber Z Slash the shop guy showed me 2 Nanospeed 9900 (At the point I didn't know the difference apart from the Prices)
one of them was S$200+ (SP) and the other S$300+(IP)
The man said that was IP meaning International Player and SP meaning South Pacific
And Singapore would be marked = SG not SP

SP=Singapore.

the reason why Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore gets SP code is because Yonex goes through a company called Sunrise in Singapore in order to sub-distribute to Hong Kong and Malaysia. therefore all rackets from there are SP (Singapore) coded.

again, this is distribution code, not where the rackets are manufactured. all high end Yonex rackets are made in Japan.

I thought :
JP = JAPAN
SP = SIngapore
IP = International Pacific

IMHO, JP and SP coded racket is different.
Paint quality wise : JP paint quality is superior than SP
Feel : JP racket feels more solid. erm.. i think it is stiffer.

I have said what it means above ^
Kwun I understand that it is SP because of Sunrise
ALL!! my badminton racket (At the moment) are from Singapore or Asia and they all have on the side the Sunrise holographic logo on the Control Cap
