    SP will be cheaper, but the price will be relatively the same when the racket first arrives, because prices tends to be sligtly higher.

    I saw an interview from a Chinese national team player Zhang Yawen. She said that there is actually no quality difference she could tell between the rackets for pros, which is CP(?), and JP or even CH.

    She said they purchase rackets from retail store as well when sponsored rackets are not around. She used to use a SP version racket and that felt even better.

    I think yonex is overusing the "warm" colors, in psychology there's a theory about what colors people choose, red and orange shades are called warm because it makes people feel excited and people tend to choose these more. Blue is a cool color where it doesn't make people feel excited, and people have less tendency to choose them.

    The grommet design/pattern looks different. Any idea what is the significance of this design?
