    Can we have a photo of the bottom of the handle, the butt cap, and the T-joint with the yonex logo in the picture?

    99% sure its a fake. The cone codes are spaced closely n the color should have been much brighter instead of the pics provided.

    Yeah, unfortunately I would call it a fake too.
    If you paid that little for it when it's in good condition some alarm bells should ring.

    I play with it for some time, has good sound and punch. I do not want it to sell or advertise. It was cheap, at least try it lifetime.

    Unfortunately, this is a low class replica which you can identify using Yonex's fake racket guide. The first sign that gives away the fake is that the serial codes are obviously printed and not laser etched.

    Second of all, you bought it for eBay for $29. When you bought it, the product page is likely to have stated that this is a replica racket. I mean c'mon, realistically a JP racket is around $250+ and above as of now.

    Also if you REALLY want a genuine JP racket, try mybadmintonstore.com or their eBay page.
