Would you mine to clarity a little bit in term of the quality of both edition, if possible, the JP version as well?
    Well I'm going to have to argue with them. The code is just a distribution code. They all play at all the same performance. US does have less fakes than JP and SP though but there are US Fakes I've seen some before.

    There usually isn't a difference with the coding, unless you obtain a 'Player' version of the racket.

    No no, that will be announced during his retirement. It will be an ultra ultra ultra stiff racket made from a nanomegapremeathalon material, titanium infused grommets, new penta-force voltage system and 20 km/ph more smashing power!

    Oh, and cost 50 more too because, oh well you know... Why the hell not?

    I grew up sceptical and became cynical over time, which came first for you?

    I think the same order as yourself lol. You learn from experience that often times that skepticism is justified and warranted, and then seeps in additional cynicism. Lol.

    If you spend any time on the forums you'll notice that people tend to 'believe' there is a difference, but I haven't seen or read anything that tells me that you shouldn't buy a particular code because of quality issues, nor have I seen or read anything that tells me that JP coded rackets are worth the premium.

    Knowing the Japanese well having worked there and with them on and off for 20 years or so, I can imaging that the JP ones could maybe have tighter specs or something along those lines as a symbol of nationalism or some such drivel, but really, I think it's mostly smoke-and-mirrors.

    A real-world issue is that certain codes are more likely to be fakes, but even that is not really an issue unless you don't do your homework or buy something that is indeed too good to be true.

    My advise is and has always been just buy whatever code from a trusted seller and you'll be fine. If you're buying for resell and you're one of those weirdos that doesn't take the plastic wrapper off the handle, then buy a code that holds value slightly better ie: not TW and definitely not CN.

    Anyway, back on topic.......
    i am glad you brought it up again because once in a while i'll need reassurance that me buying SP version of a racket isn't better than a US version of the same racket. with my personal experience i see no difference in them.

    no offense to LCW because he is very cut, but i think the Tron suit only fit those who are muscular and a bit more bulky, probably at least twice the size of LCW to begin with

    then again the pros might be using whatever racket and it's repainted with another racket scheme?

    Keita Masuda, the Japanese coach, is praising the ZF2, so it must be good right? :P

    Can't wait for this racket to be released! This will look awesome with light blue strings (or white strings with blue Yonex logo) and a black grip, and if it plays similar to VTZF and not like ArcZS I'm more than happy!

    So LCW is used in the advertising for ZFII. However, which racket has he just won Malaysian Open with? Erm ZF as I see it. So, for give the question, why isn't LCW using the new super-improved ZFII?

    That said, I can't wait to review this racket, although I fear it will be at least 2 months before I have one to test.

    Dude, LCW needs time to get used to ZFII. Is not like he can pick up any new racket and start winning tournaments. Especially in M'sia Open, his 10th title. He doesn't want to mess it up.

    I used it to buy all my badminton equipments. Not sure about Europe but I used Rakuten Japan. Of cause, you need to have a JPN address to order. Rakuten is now competing with Amazon. I'm sure it is trustworthy.

    So you would have to get it shipped to a japan addy then redirect it via friend to your location?
