    A fellow friend asked me whether this racket is a fake or not.
    My personal verdict that it is fake, by the logo at the T-joint, font of ISO Headshape writing and the grommet. The picture of its serial number were not given to me.

    Any opinion, guys?

    I compared with my, wich is undoubtably authentic
    and the ISO is fine,
    the only possible doubts are the green thing below the racket.. seems weird but is definitly possible and the yonex sign at the T-joint but that is possible as well.. nail,...

    so I'm not convinced that it is fake

    ow and the grommets seem weird but I think that's due to the camera or the light...

    looks fake, coz the yy logo on the cone and the t-joint don't look right.

    other ways to spot a fake:
    the yy logo on the end cap should be embossed, the serial numbers on the cone and the shaft should be laser-engraved, otherwise definitely fake.

    reasons:
    producing embossed end caps are expensive, and a laser-etching machine is not any backyard factory can afford buying one. if they have one, then they are serious professional fake manufacturers.

    The PBSI logo has nothing to do with it. Even thou you spot it, the other pictures prove that it is counterfeit.

    Lighting does not do that. It's counterfeit.
