    well, he said it clearly it is a REPLICA
    and high end Yonex such as VT70 should be made in JAPAN (and he stated clearly it is made in Taiwan)
    and now the price of the racket is only £34..
    you know it based on the price it is too good to be true
    real Yonex would cost you around 250 USD

    the shaft serials is too low for the cone code (2009 production)
    the bag is fake for sure, the real one is using high grade fabric material (not plastic like that)
    the sunrise sticker should be covering the cone code

    I can conclude, it is a FAKE racket

    Kwun,

    I figured that as well...everything looks like it checks out, however the price is what scares me off. Thanks for replying.

    I emailed the seller politely telling them that their racquets were fake and here is their response "Thanks for the heads up, we are trying to verify authenticity with Yonex" ------- Suuuurrreeeee.
