    (continued)therefore wouldnt recommend some sites eg. on yahoo auction even though cheaper they somitimes sell 海外モデル meaning non JP coded, sites you mentioned are all quite known here, ikkyu also being one of the popular store that let you choose Swing Weight or BP of rackets

    I never said anything about quality between YY coding. Please read my post carefully

    I emphasize my explanation on collectible values between YY Coding, especially for a brand new unstrung limited edition racket, which is the current fact in my country.

    :D:D:D

    Correct, Ikkyu provides option of the BP and SW, provided they still have it in stock. Whilst Sunfast tends to provide 30% discounted pricing for almost all of its inventories.

    There are also other online store such as 3-love, sports-naro and proshop-yamano too. :D

    Thanks for your explanation, I'd rather not purchase from yahoo jpn nor rakuten to avoid any misunderstanding concerning the coding.

    I think the feel and durability are different. Also most Yonex sponsored top world players and national players will use rackets manufactured in Japan. What I meant in quality is in the durability or longer life of the rackets but then it's all Yonex's company secret so I don't really know if there's really significant or noticable difference at all as I don't work for them ^^

    Yeah, he's afraid of scratching his racket... ;)
















    (of course, he's really using it to increase the head wt of the racket)

    taken from Japanese forum, some has received the racket and rumour has it that the racket is head heavier and stiffer and the feel differs from LCW model

    The rumors have been the same for every single limited edition that has been released in the past 10 years and they're always unfounded.

    Hi,
    Can anyone explain to me as to why in the upper head area of the Yonex Voltric Z force ii LD there's an area of white on the upper tip (when Lin Dan's in game) unlike the pictures of the z force 2 posted in the article? VTZF2LD_1.jpg

    He is using lead tape to make the racket head-heavier...

    That much of lead tape would make racket Balance to 400mm. Even LD can't manage that. It is some sort of athletic tape.

    I'm curious too. Original Z-Force II (black) is my go to racket still, and unless I read some convincing reviews by reliable members, I won't be purchasing this new LD version.

    I'm guessing the LD version is exactly the same, except with a different paint job. I recall Lin Dan switched between his racket (yellow) and the original Z-Force II (black) quite often just a few weeks ago. And the fact that Lin Dan still needs to modify his racket (yellow) by adding athletic tape clearly means that the racket hasn't really been exactly "modded" to his tastes etc.
