    Here is information for my recent acquisition, am quite confident that it is legit as the dealer is on Yonex UK's lists of stockists, but it might help the process.

    SportChek Badminton Rackets

    SportChek rackets are genuine but they don't carry high end Yonex.
    I like the Armortec 250 (red colour) a lot - good price and it plays well.
    It was on sale for $59.99

    Cone code actually ends with "GF" but I think it's half of letter "R" missing. Is that possible?

    I haven't kept track of these "Made in China" models. There is little reason to make fakes of these as it is so I don't think you have anything to worry about, especially from these sources. There is a big leap in shaft serial yes if that's what you were worried about but the same has happened for the "Made in Taiwan" line. No idea what the reason behind it was but haven't given it much thought either I must admit.

    Going on the numbers these should all be fine [​IMG].

    @ AzizuRehman: Type S or X?

    @ hyperlisk: post a pic? Maybe it has faded. If there is no engraving it probably shouldn't have been allowed to pass quality control imo. And if you can post a pic we can also tell if the correct font was used ...

    That does look a bit dodgy I must say. For one the font used for the cone code and shaft serial. Is the cone a rounded shape or is it like pictured here http://www.directsportseshop.co.uk/Images/Products/ExtraLarge/Yonex_Muscle_Power_7_Red_Black.jpg

    Who was the reseller on Amazon?

    muscle power 3 looks like a little bit strange, especially it is laser engraved, but the white paint missing

    the muscle power 7 also strange, can you confirm it that it is actually laser engraved? because in my eyes, it looks like printed, not engraved
