    i don't think so. here even the higher end iso e.g. iso 150 is considered as low/mid level racket. the iso series is not very popular here. the iso 75 is darn cheap. except the iso Ti-SP, none can be considered as special.

    I wouldn't say such a thing :)

    Besides ISO-TI-SP series, ISO-Slim10 and ISO-900 series are also good. Not to mention there are ISO-750 and ISO-600 series.

    Iso100 to Iso400 range are low->mid end. the higher end ones goes from Iso500 to Iso900.

    yeah, i know. ;) but we do not get to see the others here anymore. only Ti SP is in ther market. the rest are all low end stuff.

    my comments actually more to say, the ISO100 is too low end to be a 'limited edition'. ;)

    Don't forget the ISO 800 Tour. I don't know about the 700 and 600. They seems more like mid-range to me like the MP77 & MP66.

    Here are the ones that I think are high-end in the ISO series:
    ISO Slim 10
    ISO Ti SP
    ISO 900
    ISO 800

    I guess the ISO 750 can be considered as one of the high-end ones. But the ISO 600s are mid-level and the ISO 250s and below are entry level.

    Limited edition or not, has nothing to do with whether it's a higher or lower end model. I believe some lower end models like Ti Pro xxx is also limited distributed in only certain regions. :)

    when the word 'limited edition' springs up, i'm thinking more of the line like the AT limited edition. not 'limited distribution' as that is not really limited in a sense. ;)

    I used to have an ISO 100, but that was like 7 years ago or so.... the paint job was green.... but I don't know if they had made a new colour scheme for it after or did Yonex discontinue this product in general....
