    you're welcome mate!

    actually you should only find that SG mark on JP rackets and not others, and that kind of justifies why JP rackets are sold at a premium price to other code rackets because of this endorsement.

    For a 4U spec unit 26lbs is considered good. The more common 3U with SG should be higher than that!

    Those 3U units without the SG logo are normally rated at 25lbs only... hence the difference.

    Now maybe someone's arse should stop laughing.

    Come on, we all know by now how much YY dislikes their customer stringing their racquets to ultra high tension then claiming back at them for broken racquets strung "within warranted tensions"

    They still own most of the badminton racquet market undoubtedly, which means if they encourage high stringing tension then more racquets will come back at them. Most customers don't understand how the maximum warranted tension has little to nothing to do with the actual "clashing impact survivability strength" of the racquet

    There is no difference in max tension between JP and non-JP these days, yet all the JP ones come with the SG logo (afaik). Perhaps it is simply the max tension at which they still qualify for the "coveted"(?) SG mark

    4U @ 26 for this one is simply because it is the VT80, has nothing to with does or does not have a SG mark ...
    SG mark is for the Japanese market only as well so obviously you won't find it on other codes?

    Now I suspect you didn't catch my drift.

    Exactly!!

    I have a Cab 8DX SP T-Joint with that same logo on it and the tension read 18lbs max.
    Now I hope I got my point across.

    Do you think the rest of the rackets manufacturer like it when the customers return their broken rackets for claims?

    The thing is, other makers racket frame are much sturdy compared to YY and they could recommend higher tolerable tension. Even that most if not all makers beside YY were not susceptible with string caving into the frame/sunken grommet problems which is why the higher tension rating is all about.

    Over at my place, the badminton community are well informed/educated that a clashed rackets is not warranted by the manufacturer.

    If they don't use country codes (& serials?) I suppose they put it on every one that passed the test to "enhance the image of foreign products with Japanese consumers" . I suppose any one could be destined for Japan that came of the line if no specific country code on them ...

    Cab8DX is so old it invented itself , try finding a modern day SP code with the SG mark ... (funnily enough I don't see it on a regular/JP 8DX http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=9337865544)

    Now country codes and model time line are in too.

    I presume its just an assumption.
