    I got my MP100 in Taiwan... it says "Japan" on the bottom of it... but i heard even if they are made elsewhere they all hav "Japan" on it... so I have no idea what version it is... it's 3U and G4 for sure... and they said the racket was some sort of commemorative/special racket or something... and that's about all i know about it... any one know the system and the Asian market well enough to tell me what eversion my racket is?

    hello jason
    This Mp-100 shoule be made in Japan, and when you check the mark around your handle, u should read the following code!
    Sp- Singpore
    TW- Taiwan
    JP-japan
    CH-china
    th- thailand

    but this is to prove that where it is import from, cause in Yonex factory, they manufacture rackets and marked them and transport to different countries
    Sp- usually , cover Hong Kong, singpore, etc,,
    TH -thailand
    Tw-taiwan
    they were intended to be selling in those country
    so if you pick up a Th racket in Taiwan, they the shop maybe order from thailand Yonex ,somewhere, because of the cost...
    so, unless it is a fake one, otherwise they should made in Japan and the "Code" should be means where it is intended to sell!!
    hope it helps

    well.. it DOES say "made in Japan" but i think even if it's made elsewhere it'd say "made in Japan" anyways.. so i wnted to check it out~
    you say around the handle.. so do i have to take the grip off to see or something?

  8. i.e. Do you have any SP, or TW or ... after either of your numbers e.g.

    3312386TW or
    3315300TW

    hmm... o.. in that case... it might be covered underneath the sticker... cuz there's 2 S/N on there.. for some weird reason....
     
  10. The two letter words usually go after the s/n on the grip.

    Thats what i meant. After one of the two serial numbers, there should be 2 letters indicating where it is made.

    Why don't you just remove the sticker? It'll still be a Yonex, you know! ;)

    Yes, I believe that's what it means because my Iso 76 VF says that on the racquet and inside the case, it says "Made in Taiwan." So I guess that's what TW means.

    If it's made in Taiwan then it would be illegal (at least here in Europe) to state "Made in Japan" as you say it did...

    Could it mean that it was made in Japan for the Taiwanese market?
