    It's very hard to say if the codes mean anything. From a marketing perspective, it makes sense if Japan separates their products by quality, then separate it into tiers, from Japan, NA/Europe, SP, and others.

    and wats da difference between surface and air mail altho air mail
    is more expensive...

    yeah its heavy, i must say that the case (for yonex rackets you got a full racket case) is pretty heavy... 1000g with the carton it is very reasonable wight i guess.
    BTW just got my second package from them... By Ems shipping (NS500+Victor Artery 8900 Cls). took only 4 days.
    i always prefer Air mail, Much faster.

    I've bought from Mr. Chan on a number of occasions and I must say that I did not encounter any problems. Not to mention the inexpensive shipping rates as well.

    I've never ordered from sohubuy as I only found out about it after I came back to Hong Kong. Its been verified that they're the same store and its to cater for those who cannot read the Chinese language.

    Yes they are based in Hong Kong but they are definitely legit.

    can someone who has bought from this website confirm how the buying process works? I know you add what you wish to buy to the shopping cart then give them your email and some info, and the guy emails you with the shipping price and his paypal account but then what? do u just pay directly and wait for his reply? i mean, thats not very professional...

    thanks for any feedbacks !

    shuttlehouse does almost the same thing and I don't think anyone would say they're unprofessional

    That's exactly how it works. You pay using the send money feature on PayPal after setting up your order by email. I ordered a MP99 SP 3U & Arc Z TW 2U, both great & great shipping too. No duty, etc. His stringing prices are very good too. I wish I would have waited a bit, now there's the 100th Anniversary AE Arcsaber & the 8DX :eek:.

    I have heard 2U in TW exists for rackets that are otherwise 2U only in JP, does he have any of those?
    The website also claims he has 2U SP as well
    You have a 2U Arc Z, is it legit

    I did, he said he has 3UG5, no 2U for NS9900, then I asked if I could get one by special request, as it seems multiple others have 2U TW codes from him, no response
