    I think it was puzzaboi who said somewhere in this thread that mizuno rackets are all made in China. So, do they happen to have made in Japan now? My jpx ltd has a Japan at the buttcap although there's nothing written anywhere where it was made.

    There are always tolerances.
    Mine is slight head heavy like Fortius Tour.
    There should be others that are exactly even balanced.

    I like mine more than an even balanced one.

    Ahh.. Dam I missed my opportunity. Am a balanced racket user. Tot that it would be the same as altius tour which is abit head heavy. So was considering but looking at the chart seems like I missed my chance to get a piece :(

    There are still stores that ordered for resell purpose.
    You might spend some time finding one though.

    Interesting. I wonder who is the Japanese OEM. Or did Mizuno build up an own production line there as well?

    There is a video in their facebook that shown rackets manufacturing at their japan factory. The same factory that produces their baseball bats and golf sticks.

    That's awesome news tbh. Finally another big confidant that is really going all-in with their badminton efforts. So I guess that this limited edition is kind of a first trial run for their new production line and that we can safely assume that there will be other "real" Mizuno made in Japan rackets coming in the near future.

    Dang, I've just watched the video and I was like ah finally, another made in Japan racket

    So it seems that ATJ for now is the only MIJ racket? I think you can distinguish it by that big marking on the shaft that says Made in Japan.

    Ahh makes sense. The Japanese website stated 3000 pieces for Japan. The website you provided makes the racquet seem even less exclusive now...
    Didn't know they allocated more pieces for the international market. I totally forgot about that possibility.

    total 4000 pcs made but 3000 pcs allocated for jpn sales only and 1000 pcs distributed internationally among a few countries but jpn price is really very high estimated around 330SGD frame only where international pricing is around 260-280SGD range
