    yea.. If I'm not wrong that is called... Kin Yee Racket Shop or something like that....
    I thought Emmy Sports was the one on Argyle Street
    Because When I went to a shop in February on Argyle Street it sold Japanese Yonex products but, when I went this year, the layout change, they didn't sell a lot of Japanese Yonex products, things have change when I went today.

    there are at least three badminton shops on Argyle Street. Kin Yee is not exactly on Argyle Street.

    I thought Kin Yee is Emmy Sports, but I may be wrong. read this thread.

    yes, i think u are right. I think it's Emmy Sports is ESL. She recently (a month or two ago) relocated from one unit to the next unit, but still on the same floor.

    I just gotten Yonex 65FT, how do I know if it is JP or SP version?
    Just realised that 65FT looks exactly like 86EX

    If it says "SHB-65FT" on the shoe it's the JP version, if it says "SHB-86EX" then it is SP

    Oh, thank you. Is there any difference for JP or SP? What do they mean by SP or JP?
    Mine has "65FT" on the shoes.

    JP = Japan Code, for Japan Market
    SP = Distributed by Sunrise Singapore, for Singapore market, and some countries nearby like Malaysia and Indonesia, for example.

    They do differ in quality, JP product will suppose to have better quality than SP products as reflected by their difference in price.

    I personally found that the quality of the JP SHB-65FT was better than the SP SHB-86EX but the price is expensive

    I found the SHB85 slightly wide for my feet but was liking the look of the white SHB65FT. The top of my foot moved inside the shoe slightly.

    Are the SHB65FT wide as well?

    Ah, thanks for the explanation.
    I saw SHB 86LTD at a difference of S$10 more, in the end I went with SHB 65LT due to the material on the shoes. :D

    for a start the workmanship is different. if you have the opportunity do compare the soles of both versions as well.
