    Thanks!

    Yes, I was glad to see that they had more than on the website even though the store is small, and the shoes were cheaper than on the website :p

    Not trying to be a pain in the ass, but how come you only got a close match but not the exact numbers? :D

    All of the above, based on their numbers, should be fine [​IMG].

    This one should be fine as well [​IMG] however there is one entry with a later cone(date) code and slightly earlier shaft serial:

    7648192 080584IP AT900P

    I don't recall either being used for fakes so perhaps a minor digit switch? "7648912" would solve it but perhaps you could doublecheck your entry as well?

    I have only manually collected every entry in this thread that had previously been verified by the threadstarter leehsim and continued from there. How leehsim started off I do not know though, a lot of posts from the beginning have been archived already ... But with enough entries anomalies (fakes) stand out, which can be further checked on the physical aspects by posting pictures.

    As for the Made in Taiwan's I guess not many bother to post the details (why bother to make fakes of those anyway ;)): so far I have 283 entries versus almost 2800 for Made in Japan. But I know a few others have more than this since they also include the ones already archived (from before post #2 - May 2007; post #1 April 2005).

    Wow, manually collected. Thanks for the effort!

    I also wanted to ask if GR means Germany. Yonex seems to be using some weird country codes (when I see GR I think of Greece). Thanks in advance!

    Yes GR is Germany. I think less country codes are used now and only the one of the distributor. Yonex Germany also covers:
    Austria, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy (Golf), Latvia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey.

    There used to be quite a few entries with PL code (Poland) but not in a long while now. Think only GR is sold there now ...
    Same with Hong Kong that used to have HK cone code but now I only see SP coming from Hong Kong (and imported TW).

    Hi the name of the shop is Sports City. The guy is a local dealer and he usually dont have any stock of these rackets. So if i place an order he will give the racket within 2 days.

    Numbers look good and racket looks alright as well. Based on the numbers it should be fine [​IMG]. One thing I hadn't seen before or don't recall seeing is an ID code with SP on the shaft and PBSI logo though? ID does fall under the Sunrise distribution area, just hadn't seen it before ...

    So what is your final conclusion guys :)? Do u need more pictures in different angles for more verification ? And can i keep this racket or do u want me to return it ? Its all in your hand guys :) If you want me to return this racket then i would love to do that as i don't want to risk anymore. It seems like you have some doubts regarding the SP and ID(Which i am not familiar with). I am waiting for your replies :D
