Places of Manufacture
Is there a noticeable difference between the manufacturing places of racquets that are the same model? In other words, is there a difference between TW, JP, SP, AU, US, etc. racquets? I ask this because on Sohubuy.com the prices differ greatly, With JP racquets being the most expensive, TW racquets being less expensive, and SP racquets somewhere in between them. Also, is Sohubuy a legitimate seller?

why JP more expensive? because in Japan, everything is expensive (tokyo, the most expensive city to live)
that's why it is more expensive (if they can pay that much, why charge it less?)
while SP (Singapore) that distributed around Asia (Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc) would be much cheaper because they cannot afford a racket with same price of Japan market
JP version price is almost double of SP
and yes, sohubuy is legit

Besides the ability to pay, though, is there a quality/performance difference?

Does anyone know of any quality/performance difference between different distribution codes?

Unless of course if you do feel like paying a little extra for the JP code's slightly different cosmetics such as the "SG" mark on all JP racquet cones, or the VT80LTD's "Japan Open 30th Anniversary" logo, or the AT900's "GumMetal" decals etc.
