    Looks real to me. Sunrise decal overlaps top of PBSI logo (which looks authentic, by the way) but that is normal. It would be great to ask from which store in Indonesia he bought it from and if there is a copy of the receipt available. Normally for something this expensive (> 1.8 million Rupiahs) the buyer would probably still keep it if only for warranty purposes. The shaft looks a bit short in the first picture, but I assume that is due to the camera angle.

    Looks real to me. Yonex sticker looks legit. The bottom cap of a counterfeit is usually smaller and lighter green. Check the handle, fake ones have 'smelly' handle and cheap looking leather. Check the t joint, see if the yonex logo is "straight"? Well i don't know how good counterfeits are nowadays, but i think this one is real.

    it is not possible. the shaft serial is one of a kind number (it might be possible to get two same number, but it would take another 8 years and I don't think they still produce VT80 until then)

    it is possible to have same cone code (as it is date of production and they create thousands rackets per day

    But,

    I just bought one with exactly the same shaft and cone serial as above. And nothing curious as everything seems legit and authentic. Could I get the same racket ? Unlikely possible due to our location.

    did you buy a used racket?
    there is a chance if it's a used racket
    but I doubt about it if you buy a new one (from a store)

    few pics could be pretty helpful in this case

    Yeah I bought a used, from the seller in the link I posted. No wonder it looked the same. Wondering why did TS ask in the first place tho.

    Thanks avenger for being helpful. Appreciate it.
