    from yonex.com


    The Power Armor System construction takes full advantage of the principles of gravitational acceleration and the power of a specially developed titanium material to dramatically enhance performance of the racquet frame. Advanced hybrid "gForce Ti" and unique paring of the top of the Armortec frame maximize the frame's acceleration of gravity characteristics for more speed, more stability and more distortion-free performance.

    Are you worry about the little worms between the grommets? It happen sometime. Can you take some other pictures like the shaft and cone for us?

    its real
    fake ones dont have such clear serial numbers
    yonex say they use laser to imprint those numbers
    for those imposters i dont know what they use to print, and dont really care lol :)

    Simp84,

    Do you have a picture of the perfect counterfeit? I have yet to see one since there are still imperfections with them they look close. A few second observation is all it takes for me spot a counterfeit racket.

    I recall another member saying (replying to me since I said I can spot them quick) that they have seen a perfect counterfeit . I said, show me the picture and they did not reply nor provided a picture.

    sorry I dont have pic of them.. however I have seen 3 types of fake.. apon close observation....
    fake #1 has everything exactly the same.. except odd looking PBSI logo and false serial number... however if you did know know about the serial number... u will be instantly fooled..

    Fake #2 everything is perfect except the YY cap.... which has serial engrave on the top of YY logo..

    Fake #3 this fella i knew last time.. whos from china showed me his mp100.. I cannot spot any difference... but he told me its fake and I couldn't believe it lol... CHINA DUPES EVERYTHING!! EVEN ARTIFICIAL EGGS!

    hahaha! oh ouch. I definately want see because I'm a visual person. Mainly the rackets I've seen have imperfections on the logo, not on the cap, but it's the cone itself.
