    Hi I was wondering if someone had an experience with fake rackets coded with UK, FR, ...? I mean not SP, IP or TH.
    In fact my question is : do fake rackets exist in all the world or just Asia?

    Thanks for your help.

    Most of the fake Yonex racquets are SP, CH, CP, TH (IP?). If you worry about getting fake racquet, please visit your local Yonex dealer for a auth. Yonex racquet.

    Fakes are all over but more common in Asia IMO because that is where a lot of the manufacturing of fakes goes on. JP coded fakes are also reasonably common. This isn't surprising as a lot of people will pay over the odds for JP coded rackets. I've never actually heard of a fake IP code but it doesn't surprise me.

    EDIT: +1 to what master Silentheart said, buy from reputable retailers and you don't have to worry, whatever the code.
