Where did u get this one? How much?
Post reviews after more sessions. Seriously wondering, if the new 'yellow' version has anything difference with the original orange ones.

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...

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.

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......

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

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 got a pair of SHB 89(orange) and a pair of SHB 98..have anyone here got the 98? THe design seem to be different than the one advertise on the Japanese website. Doesn't look as good.

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
