    Question made in taiwan vs made in japan?

    It might sound like a dumb question... but I really didnt know the answer to this question.

    What are the differences between yonex made in taiwan rackets and made in japan?

    I know that ones made in japan cost a lot more money and good players use them. So what is it that makes japanese rackets superior to made in taiwan rackets?

    Are you asking about the difference between TW coded rackets and JP coded racquets?

    i understand the confusion now. Yonex distribute different rackets to different country/markets. in Hong Kong, they still have MP99, MP66, MP45 which i believe are made in Japan. anything at or below MP25, i am not sure.

    but to answer the OP's question.

    roughly, high end Yonex racket models are made in Japan, low end Yonex rackets are made in Taiwan, and some ultra-budget ones are actually made in China.

    as for the difference, it really depends on you. there are certainly differences between them but the difference is not due to the location they are made in, but instead due to the high-end / low-end design of the racket.

    Oh, I didn't know that. Just goes to show the wealth of knowledge from certain people on this forum. They say you learn something new every day so that can be mine for today

    Yeah, I agree with that. If an Arc10 or other high end Yonex was made in China, I doubt you'd notice the difference, Yonex just make the low end rackets in China and Taiwan to save money and bring the rackets in at a lower price. They don't need to do that with the high end models.
