    Default SP or TW

    Hi. I am about to buy a Yonex arcsaber 100 ltd from sohubuy.com and they have both the SP and TW version at the same price. I know that versions don't really mean anything in quality or such, but just saying, which one would you guys prefer?

    Thanks! =D

    If you choose the TW coded one then your only spec choice is 3UG5, while you can get either 3UG4 or 3UG5 if you choose the SP coded one.

    Well I'm getting 3UG5 for sure. Should I just go with either one or is there one that I should get more over the other? XD

    No conclusive proof that there's difference between the codes for rackets, so might as well get the TW and save some money.

    Wow. Would never have even known that some things aren't listed on the brand page and only visible through search unless you had told me. Thanks. Though personally, I just get quotes by emailing Mr. Chan.

    TW and SP are not at the same price though.. so my previous comment still stands then

    Arc-100 Ltd Badminton Racket 3U/G5 SP
    HK$1180 US$152

    Arc-100 Ltd Badminton Racket 3U/G5 TW
    HK$1120 US$144

    Yes, Mr. Chan replies in Chinese but you can email him in English. Pretty sure wongor is his nephew and will reply in English but sadly I have never got a reply from him when I emailed him. Mr. Chan has always replied to me really promptly and it's not that hard to understand what he's saying if you just use Google Translate or something like that.

    Agreed with alextan that JP will command a higher price simply because people think it's better quality. I wouldn't pay a higher price for SP over TW though.

    Alrite thanks guys. One last thing, is there a difference from just buying directly from the site by using the "buy" button or by emailing him?

    Never bought through the website but it looks to be the same as emailing directly since you have to input your name, email address, address, etc. and wait for them to email you back with the price quote which is what happens by emailing directly anyway.
