    Default Only SP coded yonex rackets are SP edition?

    I've been searching the forums about this and many answers seems just say SP is the country code. But I want to ask about the SP bold letters right after the racket name e.g. Armortec 700 SP

    Does SP mean special edition or something? or is it just SP coded rackets have the letters SP after the name?

    SP is just a distribution country code.
    i cant really recall there is any SP wording just after Armortec 700. "SP" wording normally is located near to the cone.

    you may prefer it as Armortec 700 Super Power, if you want to ...

    Sp coded racquets are not restricted to Singapore. In fact there are at least a thousand times more SP racquets in China than in the whole of Singapore. In Singapore an average retail store will be lucky if it can sell 10 SP racquets in a day. SP racquets sales to an average Chinese reseller is at least 200 racquets, 50,000 BG65 Yonex strings, per order.
    SP coded racquets simply mean these racquets are made for Sunrise company in Singapore, Yonex's largest distributor in the world. The owner of Sunrise is a Singaporean Indian named Seth. It was Sunrise who actually made Yonex into what it is today, helping it to battle against the then very famous Dunlop, RSL, and Blue Bird brands. Without Mr Seth of Sunrise Yonex would be still stuck in the fishing nets business today. Having such a large share of Yonex's business it is not surprising SP coded racquets and strings are found all over the world.

    In response to invisbear, the answer is , yes and no.

    I know a lot of you here are from the newer generation, where the YY logo always look the way it is these days. If you look back at their rackets 20yrs ago, they did not have country codes at those days. There were SP versions of rackets, such as Aerotus 110 SP, a v.2 version of the original AR110. SP probably meant 'special' at those time.

    These days, SP is the regional distribution code for 'South Pacific', probably a direct parallel of the Sunrise corp.
