    Ok so I have been offered a used Yonex Armortec 800 off for a resonable price (about 60$). The seller claims he bought it in a store in Dublin. He kindly gave me the sereal codes. 3748033 on the shaft and 270389sp on the cone.

    If I understand it correctly this racket was made 27th march 2008 or possibly 1998. I'm no expert in the yonex production line, but the AT800 wasn't produced as early as -98 and not as late as -08. So it has to be a fake, right?

    Yea, and how did a SP end up in a shop in Dublin?

    But do keep in mind that SP rackets in Europe does not always mean counterfeit.

    That's absolutely right! I have several SP rackets that was bought in Europe that's not counterfeit. But that has an explaination. In short:

    The former import agent got samples from Asia and he later sold them to friends.
