    i've saw that you can find out if a racquet is real or not just by looking at the font of the words on green cap(the "made in japan").
    can some1 tell me how?:confused:
    btw, there is a pic of my yonex mp 66's cap, can u ppl tell me if its real or not?

    fake sellers don't stand still.
    what u have learned 6 months ago about fakes may not apply anymore.

    so far it looks authentic

    it has the authentic yonex grip, the laser engravings are good, the green cap has the correct yonex sign, but the word "japan" seems a little weird.

    That's normal. It's probably the camera magnifying the "J" to look funny.

    yup, I agree~ looks authentic... from looking @ the green cap for fakes, people usually look at the letter J... real yonex is shorter like yours!

    Looks good to me. Fake ingraved serials are wibly wobly and very faint. Yours looks precise and completely normal.

    But shouldn't the green cap have "Made in Japan", instead of just the word "Japan"?
