    I'm interested in a Yonex short, but it is made in China. And the seller bought it in S'pore. I'm just wondering whether it's a genuine Yonex product or not? thanks!

    Most of products nowadays are made in China. This applies to every company in the world.

    Not really, only high end ones are made in Japan. About half of Yonex rackets nowadays are made in Taiwan and China. For example, MP2X series, lower Cabs, B-series...... lots of models.

    em...but lots of fake Yonext products are made in China too;). Here is another picture with logo enlarged. Can you tell it's fake or not, just from the picture? Its material is Cotton and spandex

    Actually MP30 are made in china/taiwan too....
    This guy who probably studied the Yonex Japan catalogue came up to me and say "There's a MP30?!?!?!".... He probably thought it's fake :rolleyes:

    I've came up with another conclusion...

    All the racquets that are NOT in www.yonex.co.jp OR the yonex international site.... Is made in china/taiwan...

    I've came up with this conclusion because the yonex japan site or the international one does not have anything below MP44.... And no carbonex 8200, 8400, 7000, or 6000... As well as the lower end isometrics....
