    I know there are similar topics of fake Yonex rackets on the forum already but what got me is this racket that was given to my sister.

    It's called a Titanium ech 008 cf sq. That's what's on the shaft anyway. The case that it came with had Muscle Power 32 on it.

    Originally we thought it was from a really old line of Yonex rackets. It even came with a small booklet/catalog that was tied to the frame. The catalog had older models of Yonex rackets which led us to thing it was an old model. The grip was wrapped and had a sticker with a Yonex bar code on it.

    Right now I'm pretty convinced it's a fake. It's strange though that they didn't fake some high-end Yonex but some obscure model. I'm posting pics of it. Let me know what you think of it.

    Thanks Kwun. I guess the other racket that was bought along with it is a fake too. a Yonex Titanium 72.

    Ha ha. Muscle Power 007. That's funny.

    while we're on the subjects of fake yonex rackets, does any one know if there really is a Muscle Power 200 and 300 model?

    I really don't think so. ;)

    I know Winex has Mighty Muscle 200, but never heard Yonex has anything above 100 in its MP series.
