Most OUTRAGEOUS Yonex (and other) Prices
I've seen a few lately:
I'll convert the currencies as best as I can
MP 88 SP: (I got my MP 88 non SP for that price!)
MP99 SP: MP 99 TW:
$1375 HK $1900 HK
$250 CND $345 CND
$190 USD $262 USD
I'm not even going to finish. THis was all from one store...I nearly fainted when I saw the prices.

And what store is it? Tad's, Racquets and Runners or Abbies? RNR seems to be more expensive of the three of them. Unless I am really desperate, I am not even contemplating of buying from them. Vancouver baddy market's probably too small for fluctuating pricing level... competition won't be at pricing with high business overhead.

That's really high for MP99......very very high.......
I can't believe they actually sell at that price.....would anyone be stupid enough to buy from them??

If there's nobody to buy from them, then they wouldn't have stock it in the first place. Some people just have money flowing out of their pockets.
BTW, Lalanthier... are those prices with 14.5% tax on top?

However, be careful that u r 100% correct before naming the store.

In US, MP88 is about USD$160, MP99 is USD$190. If there's a price for $120 for MP88, I am pretty sure someone will be interested rather than fainted.

What's the diff between 'SP' and 'non SP'?
What does SP means? Special? Singapore?
and TW? Taiwan?

You need to read the country code thread before you ask. Or use search.

Isn't SP = Sunrise Sports?
You should do a search too

Most People refer SP as South Pacific, but if you want to call it Sunrise Sports, that's fine with me. To me, there is no difference. However, in terms of Language in English, South Pacific sounds more logical, and I will keep it in my brain in that way.

A person (I think it might be a shop or something) tried to sell a MP99, US coded, new, on ebay with $260 USD.
That's even beyond the retail price....and the person just wasted his/her $5 ebay listing fee.

There are lots of countries with SP on the shaft, indicating that they are all in the same league. I know IP, MA, SP, HK.... all have "SP" on the shaft, and that's what people refers as SP-IP, SP-MA, SP-SP, SP-HK.....if you read in full.
When people refer "SP racquets", it just general means that rackets racquets with SP codes on either cone or shaft, since they are all the same with PBSI logo and SP on the shaft anyway.
Now back to the topic
I know Luxis has rackets in really high prices as well......

We got a little off track here. So what is this super expensive store in Vancouver anyways?

If they give that up and sell them, it can be changed to "DP", ie. decease property.
