yeah i understood your message, I said AUD220+shipping cost means AUD220 plus whatever the shipping cost will be.
Will take a look and PM you if I'm interested in an of the other rackets.

what country code is IP?
haha do you think getting a JP AT900T > JP ARC Saber Z ?

The JP Arcsaber Z costs about AU$10 more than the JP AT900s overall. It will ultimately boil down to what you prefer. I bought one JP Arc Z a few weeks ago, but am still very comfortable with using my IP AT700 as my main racquet. It just takes sometime to adjust to the Arc Z, which I don't have much of at the moment

oh i thought IP means Indonesia as some people have said in this forum. good that i know, as i honestly find JP rackets much to expensive compared to their non-JP counterparts. IP would be a good laternative.
ahha sorry what i meant was do you think getting a JP Arc Z is better than getting a JP AT900T IF you already had both rackets in a non-JP version? or maybe i'm just being greedy :P
being a badminton fanatic can be bad for your bank account!

But all I can say is that you will be spending quite a bit should you decide to try a Z Slash "regular length" Carbonexes which I think is more user friendly
The reason I bought the JP Z Slash was just for the 2U version, which is only JP exclusive....
As for IP AT900T vs JP Z Slash (if both are 3U) I would that they should feel similar since both are even balance to slightly head heavy. IMHO their swing character should be similar as both are aerodynamic frame designs. There shouldn't be a good reason to get a JP Z Slash 3U by the way, since I don't notice anything different between the different codes other than the SP shaft decals and the PBSI logo. The AS or NZ codes will be fine I recommend.
By the way the Indonesian code will be IN. The SP and IN coded racquets will definitely have the PBSI logo on the cone.

okay so here comes the controversial question. so since you have a range of rackets with different codes:
Do you think there is/isn't a difference between rackets of different codes?

I only got my JP racquets for the slightly different design (Gummetal for one) and the 2U weight class. If not I'm happy with the IP codes since they're easily available through online stores. IMHO the JP racquets won't make you play better, faster, smash harder, play tighter net shots etc.

IMHO the Arc Z needs to be played using a defensive style, which will hopefully make up for its lack of defense. Once the timing and footwork is there the extra focus on the sweet spot should lend you a lethal smash or drive....
Not there yet myself though

Tried my At900T SP yesterday for the first time and i must say it is indeed a very nice racket.
Immediately when i picked it up i can already get used to it, throughout the play, i find it very forgiving, especialyl for some off centre miss-hits.
To my surprise, i can even execute powerful smash out of this so called 'defensive-tactical" racket. Overall it is just sweet.
Only one concern though, at 28lbs with BG65, the overall hitting "feel" of AT900T seems to be "not so solid" as compared to the feel of Arc 7 or Arc Z.(the racket feels like breaking apart everytime i hit the shuttle) Is it because of the frame and shaft, or is it just me???
my new baby is a 3UG5 anyway.

But when i tried my friend's AT900T , no such feeling. His is strung at 26lbs. Oh well maybe AT900T is not meant to be played like a Trixon 8, for a "COW" like me .

hehe,a beginner question here, where do you find the code JP,IP,etc etc etc???
