    Most likely it is real since the distro code is CD (CANADA)

    Also the butt cap looks good to me as well. (most fake rackets have the logo not really embossed out of the green background, and the fake butt caps have more of a matte texture rather than smooth and a bit reflective like the real one)

    ALSO, I need to see the shaft code and maybe the grommets please?


    I have bought fake Yonex's a few from the past (earlier 2000s and a few recently) I have seen many kind of fakes, but even the extremely good fakes either messes up the butt cap (Almost ALL the time is messed up), or the code does not make sense (more rare mistake since fake manufacturers are learning Yonex's code schemes)

    hey this is the image that you wanted and I've bought it in a commercial store.. his name is Sport expert and he told me that the racket is a demonstration. Thats why i've bought it 150 box. Thee principal reason that I want to know if it a fake or not is because i feel i little vibration when i play with it. Its maybe a company mistake or something like that ? And the code on my shaft is 2490157

    IMO, it looks good.
    the shaft serial and cone code close to the genuine one
    the butt cap also looks fine

    maybe photo of the bag? (just to make sure)
    but I believe it should be fine

    CD coded racket + good shaft and cone code combo + good butt end + good fonts used on the cone code = 100% genuine.

    Even if the bag is not real, the racket is REAL lol

    Case closed.

    But where is the little yellow oval sticker they have on the cone? Don't genuine rackets have it? Or did he rip it off?

    LOL you can see the Yonex sticker on the first 2 pics

    NOTE: ALL YONEX Stickers are on the tension spec side of the cone. THEY ARE NEVER ON THE Cone Serial or the "YONEX" Logo sides of the cone lol

    the oval sticker is in the first picture (check the bottom part of the cone on another side)
    you will see something oval. most likely that is the oval sticker
    the oval sticker is one side with 3U 4G and the max tension writings
