    So its a fake? I wish there were some detailed photos so I could compare. Looked at the yonex site and what i can gather is mine is a darker blue, nearly purple and some of the writing looks different

    Report him on Ebay. If you paid using PayPal, report him there too.

    well, then i guess you'll just have to let it slide cause it'll be impossible to track him down.

    sometimes the seller will give you a refund if you tell him that he's sold you a fake and will be reporting him.

    Yeah finally the template is enforced!! Well I am sure, you can let the "include this line" slide - it is the info inside the lines which counts.

    Ive managed to get the seller to agree to a refund when I return the racket, despite the seller trying to get me to keep the racket and offering me £15 paypal credit, then later a £20 credit.

    Do I insist on payment first or just send it? Its a PO Box address.

    Im so confused, it looks so real! Its the right length, got the closer holes at the shoulders of the head, paintwork looks purple rather than blue, the 'nanoscale elastic Ti' logo is on the side of the head not next to the strings. The red band doesnt quite line up into a V. The yonex logo on the cone hologram smudges off when you wipe your finger over it.

    Its really convincing, cant find any pictures of a JP model to compare it to.

    The genuine racket does have a purple/blue look and does look more purple than blue.

    This is the real JP. Also notice the grommets? Look at yours then you will notice the differences. Note: The cloth case in the picture also comes with high-end JP rackets.

    Do you have a official database to check against or just tell by experience?

    Everyone knows this was made on March 19, 2007, distributed to Thailand, but anything else you can tell other than that?
