    i'm going to say no. 1 is the fake, just because the wrapping around the handle is less than perfect.
    but no way would i be able to tell without comparing to the real deal.
    amazing work by the pirates!

    Mr Panda Bear is having a laugh. None are fakes. Strange for a sotx man to have so many yonex rackets.

    So are any of them fakes then? If any are I'd hazard a guess at no. 1... seems to have a few slight imperfections, really hard to tell though :p.

    They all look professionally made to me! If I had to guess I would go for number 1 too but my first guess would be that they are all real.

    here's my guess :D I'm the 1st person to say no.2 because the handle wrapping is not good and in the 1st pic, the yonex writing on the cone is black :D :p

    i think the writing on the cone being black is because it's a type X, and the other 2 are type S.

    i reckon either 1 or 3 is fake 30% no 1 is fake 65% no 3 is fake or if dink is trying to trick us no 2 might be fake (as there is nothing to compare it to)

    Ahhh, if you place a seperate bet on each possible outcome, you are sure to win. Maybe I will go try this trick at the bookies and win me some money. Then I can buy me some genuine VS3000's.

    I agree with baderz_jas...no. 2 cause the writing of yonex on the cone is different then 1 and 3.

    all 3 looks real to me.. can't find any hints to make me think otherwise..
    from the gorments all looks like the real thing
    logos and fonts looks good and espeically if u look at 1 and 3's
    date code, 1 and 3 r made 4 days apart and its around 4K difference in the serial numbers.. which rather makes sense.. and if Fakes actually have
    taken fine details like that into consideration then i must admit i have been fooled..
