    I just bought AT900T from a forummer here in BC. Its IP code as well...serial 8470715, 220494IP. Feel unsure about it coz...

    1) the weight and grip size is engrave/printed. My previous racket manufactured in year 2006 uses sticker to indicate the grip size and weight. Not sure for newer racket?

    2) No gunmetal wording on the racket frame? I once own a JP AT900T with gunmetal wording on its frame. Not sure about SP or IP code should has the gunmetal wording or not?

    3) Yonex logo on the butt cap looks fishy/cheap plastic.

    Anyhow just posted the serial other thread to verify it authenticity. Hope it is legit.

    This is what I meant with see through/ transparent gold YY hologram sticker. I don't think it is actually underneath the PBSI decal (itsygo08 should look more carefully)
    I'd say this racket is a perfectly fine SP/IP version ...

    1. No more stickers since somewhere in 2008 production
    2. It is guMmetal, not guNmetal ;) and yes it is only used on JP code instead of Elastic Ti (copyright issue)

    It has been awhile since I last bought a Yonex racket..some 5-6 years ago i think..a little bit lost on the changes of latest Yonex racket production. Anyhow..thanks for the clarification :). On second though..the buttcap seems fine after some research on google.
