    Hello everyone,

    I am planning to buy the following items. Was just wondering if anyone can take a little time and let me know if these products are genuine yonex products. I guess I got paranoid and just want to be sure :eek:. Thanks for your time.

    I don't think they are genuine.

    I cannot comment on the bag as I'm not up to speed on all the Yonex bag designs over the years. As for the tape, I don't believe Yonex sells them with no packaging. I've always seen Yonex graps in the cardboard + plastic packaging (e.g. A440).

    Who's the seller?

    I found the seller on ebay. His id is come4bestprice.

    I was looking at the other badminton websites and was not able to find the bag with the same color. So it got me wondering.

    The bag is easy to spot. I don't think Yonex's price tag looks like that one. Plus, the design of the bag is too weird. Yonex would never put the colored full logo on the bag, and not just the big logo without text. :)

    Also, the zipper is not quite right as well.

    The price tag is like that in Taiwan and China isnt it? I got a genuine Yonex shirt from Taiwan with a price tag like that.

    However, the font on the logo in the bottom left corner looks suspicious

    I really can't say too much on the grips. I do see quite a few local players (mainly from S/E Asia) using this type of grip. I am not sure if that's a special model which designated to certain region or not, but with my own experience, seems the grip is fine, but the packaging (i.e. tape and plastic sheet cover) was less impressive. :rolleyes:

    You are right. the zipper should have YY logo on it.
