    Mansaii,

    Sounds like you had a serious collision to break it. Do you have pictures?

    Hmm..accidents do happend..really.I don't think that an expensive racket would means it's harder to break..since in fact,expensive rackets would be in a lighter weight,which means..it's tend to break easier than the cheap ones.Bitter news,isn't it?That's why everytime i play,i would really take a look at who's my partner is.If it's someone who's not really good,i'd pick some racket that's cheaper.That's how i really decide on which racket i'm going to use in a match..since i don't have any sponsors to supply me rackets everytime i broke a racket.So,that makes me more careful..since i already broke 4 rackets in less than 2 years already.3 of them might be caused by the collisions during doubles.Playing double means more chance for a racket to break than when u play singles..

    So,my advice,next time..don't use an expensive racket to play double if u're afraid to lose one.If buying any rackets n spending money is not an issue for u,then feel free.:)

    something that is not easy to break?or a good racket?if u're looking for a good racket,then it's ur personal preference.What kind of player r u?

    Don't just pick rackets just because it's popular..but pick em because they suits ur play style.=)

    Alken,
    When you say that "serial sequence must not run too far with the date of manufacture" Can you explain this. Is there a web site where I can look this up? for example rackets made in the year 2000 should start with 1000000 and 2001 should start with 2000000...ect How do I know which year should have what starting number?

    Thanks.

    A friend of mine is sending me a racket, for my birthday, I will post the numbers soon when I get it. I will need help from you all to determine if I get a real or a fake racket :)

    Thanks.

    That would be convenient wouldn't it??? No, there are no websites that lets you check the authenticity of the racket by its corresponding serial number. I am pretty sure that some of the members here(including me) has a list of most of the serials that are posted in this forum & thats how we can tell if the serial 'falls' into that particular date code range or not. it is not easy maintainig the data, but we do it for the good of the community.

    If you can also post pictures for a me for the visual inspectino that will be great. Pics I am mainly interested in the cone area (with the word and logo of Yonex is visible), and the serial/date.

    I have checked in the information of your Yonex Carbonex 20 SP shaft Serial:3897442; Cone Date Code:030723SP (date=03 Jul 2002) to my information list of Yonex rackets made in Japan, its serial no. and date code are legitimate.

    However you still need to inspect the other physical features of the racket carefully and compare the specifications to ascertain its total legitimacy or authenticity yourself.
