    Maybe you are picking U4 grip size? I still feel the U5 is smaller than yonex U5. No difference in feeling. I even knock on them several times to really believe they are made of plasticky material instead of wood. Lol.

    Btw I forgot to mention repulsion. JPX CX - 10, X2 - 8

    I am currently using Astrox 88D and 99. I am thinking about buying either the CX edition or LTD edition ES. However, I am afraid that either racket would not be better than what I already have. Can anyone compare Astrox 88D vs CX and LTD edition? I am intermediate level player.

    Anyone tried JPX 8.1 PRO version? Specs are 3u HH and I'm curious how it compares to AX88d or AX99.

    Actually now you mentioned it, the cone is indeed bigger and longer than my X2. But the thick feel might be a suggestive thing because of this visual.

    I remember someone mentioning it before as being something like Japan quality of goods mark. So it isn't specific to Yonex and you should only see this on their Japan retail rackets.

    Edit: Found a better link.
    "Japan Safe Goods" (SG) mark.

    MY AT-J has the SG mark, but that's also because I bought it in Japan.
    There are 3000 pieces produced for Japan and an additional 1000 pieces internationally (total of 4000 pieces)
    It would be safe to assume your racquet is part of the 1000 pieces of the 'international bunch' since you bought locally in Indonesia.
    Rimano is spot on about the SG mark. I wouldn't be concerned that yours is missing it since it wasn't made for the local Japan market.

    On a slightly different subject, I remember someone on here was having quality issues with their Altius Tour. Is this still an issue or just a first batch hiccup? Potentially want to have a look at this racket, because I used to use Okuhara adidas racket, which I liked a lot. (Still not sure why I sold them...)

    I remember someone posted some issues on the normal altius tour? Or isit the japan version?

    If i recall correctly I saw someone's altius tour keep snapping at certain points of the racket

    Normal version. Wondering if any one brought another one recently and if they've had issues. Not much chance of me getting an ATJ and I don't want to pay japan prices either :p.

    Somehow I'm quite surprise why isit that as compared to other brand like Yonex, victor, lining it seems like mizuno is not as famous or on demand as compare to the rest?

    Poor marketing and sales management plus maybe limited budget for marketing and sales activities too, and these two are supporting each other, creating a snow ball effects going downhill.

    I hope with the signing of Hendra/Ahsan this shows management interest so more money will be injected in the future to promote the brand further, because the product will speak for itself once it is in our hands.

    The one I trying was a g5 grip size, and it feels is like holding a supermarket kid's racket:D. Not trying to say it's bad as I'm satisfied with Jpx Ltd. I do agree with you Mizuno g5 is indeed smaller than Yonex g5, but not the latest version of Mizuno racket like Jpx Z8 CX and Jpx CX, they feel thick and bulky like Yonex g4.
