    In my local Yonex supported retail outlet. At the moment sizes are scarse since it's just a limited number of pieces and sizes the shops are carrying until the main release in June.

    The only difference in the Orange/Yellow should be the colour. After all they couldn't release the same colour shoe two seasons in a row or the stupid early adopters like me wouldn't fund the price decrease midway through the season for everyone else.

    Yuemokau (David) got the shoes for me through his friend in Canada... price was 89 shipped... a little bit more than what the orange ones are going for locally so i thought of going with the new color...

    will post an updated review after a week or two...

    LazyBuddy,
    Can you recommend any store that can deliver a Babolat Satelite Comet to Kentucky? Any idea on the price? Please give details of the store (address, email, etc.) Thanks.

    really!!! damn... does that mean the new ones have less support...

    ants - can you get a picture of that extra pad...

    thanks

    I agree with you Dill... lack of ankle support. The SHB 98Mid does provide a better ankle support.

    Calvin : Not that the ones u have less support. just that Jp versions is diff. I will take some snap shots once i get my camera back.

    here is what i think seperates the JP from the "SP"

    JP has a wavy sole in the front side of the insole of the shoe
    the three stripes at the front part of the shoe is made from shiny materials
    at the back of the JP shoe, the words "YY Yonex" is "carved" (there is a recess in every words) , not chopped/imprinted. and most importantly, if i'm not wrong, the JP ones are more flexible.

    and oh! the mesh thing just under the shoelace and above your feet, (the ones in grey) the jp ones are made from elastic bands, while the "SP" are just made from normal trackshoe hard sponge type of materials.

    I think I found the difference between the Yellow 89 (new) and Orange 89 (old)

    This is from Yonex description:
    (Orange)Midsole: Power Cushion, Super EVA, 3D Graphite Sheet Composite
    (Yellow)Midsole: Power Cushion, TPU, 3D Graphite Sheet Composite

    There is something called TPU, something to do with the sole......

    Well I've got an ankle on ice for the lasst three days because of it, they have obviously had to sacrifice some support the keep the weight down, at least with the 89's they are sturdy and rigid around the ankle because of the anti twist mechanism but in the 98's they are very flexinle and there is no rigidity whatsoever.



    So much for top of the line

    in the UK...

    the old and new shoes are distinguished by the numbers:

    SHB89M (old) and SHB89MG (new) (both mens)

    in the yonex catalogue from the all england open, its says the SHB89MG has gLite soles like the SHB98MX, ie i think the "G" in the model number is distinguishing the two shoes apart since the newer one has gLite which is 30% stronger the EVA (allegedly) which is also found on the SHB98

    Hi Ants:
    When did you buy the your shoe? Is it in Japan? I bought mine last Nov. in Japan and looks a bit diff. than your's. The tongue of the shoes mesh material rather than a padded. Maybe 2 version in Japan also??

    I have a pair of the 98s, and I think the main difference between the Japanese version is that we have the low-cut version, and they have mid-cut... I think

    It's probably too cold in KR, so that they put extra pads there and no holes for the toes on the top-front
