    Trying asking for the frame pictures of gourmet. A point to take note is the date official release 19th September 2009 and racket date code 11st September 2009. In my opinion, it is pretty old and keeping in good condition is questionable.

    http://imgur.com/ssZ9mu6&t4QWWBd (more pictures of the frame), but you did make a good point there about how old this racket was made and the current condition of the racket. My cousin said that the "SP" on the shaft means that the racket is fake, is this true?

    All yonex high end rackets say japan on the end cap regardless of the country code and sp coded rackets do have sp on the shaft usually. I see no reason to suspect the racket of being fake.

    It's like that. I'm assuming this is your first high end racquet lol , every high end racquet is made in japan, but the codes are distribution codes for example: HK Hong Kong CH china CD Canada SP Singapore US United States JP japan etc....
