    Why don't you post your serial no. in the thread created by kwun?

    I think that's a more accurate way of judging whether your racket is genuine or fake, rather than just comparing the bags!

    Anyway, my racket bag is different from yours because I got mine from Japan.

    agree.

    firstly i don't understand why so many ppl are so paranoid about buying a fake rackets. i have trouble finding one even if i want one.

    secondly, i think despite the paranoia, we should have a rule that everytime someone want to know if they have fake, they should post pics of various locations of the rackets, including handle cap, serial number, grommets. on top of that, they should let us know where they bought it and for how much. if they bought a racket from a authorize Yonex dealer they why even bother asking if they have a fake one?

    thirdly, the bag is probably the last thing to look at, even genuine racket of the same model, if you buy it in different market, you will probably get a completely different bag....

    In some parts of the world, the number of "legit" retail stores selling fakes far exceed the number selling genuine yonex.

    But I never seen a AT bag. You know, the mp bag is gold painted, but the at bag is argent painted?:confused:

    I've seen an armortec 500 and it's bag, it's the CD version and I know that the store the guy bought the racquet from only sells genuine racquets so I have no doubt that his racquet is real. His bag isn't like yours but since your racquet is a CH version then there's a good chance that they shouldn't be anyway whether your racquet is fake or not.

    I think most of the Jps comes in those kind of bags. :) Which i think is better. Since we are regular players... and most of the players own a big bag which carries 4 to 10 rakets.. its really no use using the normal bag they give. You can't put it in a big bag. consume too much space.

    yah, different regions do provide different bags..

    but yeah, it's very unlikely that the bag has anything to do with a fake racket...honestly, the bag could be bagged in some grocery bag and the racket could still be real...

    i think we can be easy on him though...he just probably hasn't seen a bag like his EVER...and just wants to exclude ANY possibility of it being a fake...so if anyone has a bag like his...just tell him?

    Armotec bag

    I've just bought four Armotec rackets from the official Yonex retailer at the World Championships in Birmingham.

    Your bag certainly looks like them, apart from the colour. Your bag seems to have gold lettering, or is that just the photo? My bags all have silver lettering and stripes.

    And I've bought rackets in Japan before when they gave me the regular thermal covers. I think it depends on the store you get it in. A very big store will ask you which kind you want.
