    I thought SP means "S"teroty-"P"ing.

    Also, do a search, there are several posts about this subject.

    I got one but I think it's a copy, indeed the serail number don't correspond to a date :37.....SP, and the seller tell me that:
    "This item is in China's foreign trade plant production, It is OEM(Original Design Manufacturer). and graphite shafts .Therefore the price is cheap."

    And when I ask about the serial numbre:
    "the serial number is false,beacuse if it true,the items will very very expensive.so ,the OEM item is very good and nice.and sell for Chinese,so the serial number is false for Europe "

    read from post #13 onwards... some discussion on the SP VS JP VS TH VS XX


    Reading from your replies, you got a SP coded fake racket and want to ask if ALL SP coded rackets are fake? Am i correct?

    so the seller is saying the fake racket is real aka oem in China but fake in Europe? :rolleyes:

    A fake racket is fake... no such thing as original in 1 country fake in another...

    Not all SP coded rackets are fake, SP rackets are just widely available in alot of countries...

    Give us the serial date code and post it in the serial thread.

    Personal notes: SP = Super Power!! JP rules all! :D

    SP is the distribution code for Singapore. Just like JP is the distribution code for Japan. Quality? exactly the same. Unless it's fake.

    Yup, except the JP's are considered by some as 'rare' and are more expensive than the SP's overseas.
