    tell me what is the shop, and I might be able to tell you if it is genuine or not

    no you are wrong
    the format is:

    DD MM Y X then 2 country code
    D: Day (can't be more than 31 or 30 depending on the month)
    M: month (can't be less than 1 or more than 12)
    Y: year (yes only 1 number for year)
    X: irrelevant for us, some people said it is batch number (this number can't be 0)
    country code: SP, JP, CH, etc

    for example:
    021212SP

    so:
    day: 02
    month: 12 (december)
    year: 2001 or 2011 (we can identify the year by looking at the shaft serials)
    X: 2 (irrelevant)
    distribution area: SP (Singapore) note than SP is country distribution, not country where it is made (it is still made in Japan, Taiwan / China depending on your racket, high end, mid end, or low end)

    ALL Yonex racket should follow this format
    if they don't then it is a fake
    some people confused between cone code and SUNRISE stickers
    on the sunrise sticker, they put: SXXXXXX it is NOT the cone code

    Errm, that alone doesn't make it legit [​IMG]. It also has to coincide with the estimated shaft serial number on that date (outside of the physical appearance).

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help. Appreciate that you guys are doing such a nice service for everyone here! =)

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    racket model: Yonex Voltric 5
    shaft serial: 6131776
    cone code : 291104SP
    source : Singapore, Queensway Shopping Centre
    price : SGD100(81USD
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    [h=3]---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Voltric Z Force
    shaft serial: 3662838
    cone code : 310722SP/310122SP (Sunrise sticker covered,
    quite tight on it, so i can make out roughly of what i can see.)
    source : Singapore, Queensway Shopping Centre
    price : SGD220(81USD
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    [/h]
    Another question to add on: YONEX had a page on ways to spot counterfeit products, so additional to those ways
    http://www.yonex.com/company/warning-counterfeits/
    So what i've learned so far, these people who make fake racquets, they have circumvented all these things, so ultimately the best way to find out is thru serial numbers only?

    Considering another possibility, cant they actually rip off serial numbers off a legitimate racquet? Then that would be REALLY tricky already isnt it?

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Isometric 25DF
    shaft serial: 3250464
    cone code : 200763CH (So i suppose, 20th July 2006? China)
    source : China, Walmart (My dad bought it =x)
    price : 24USD
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    I know this is a cheap racquet, and it's quite an old one. I've come a long way. But ya. Just for learning sake, perhaps enlighten me abit?

    Sorry for my barrage of questions, perhaps this can help everyone to learn more too.

    Thanks in advance, guys!

    It does. Doesnt it? Not because Danze said so. but ya, according to my datasheet that i compiled from this forum. However, an estimate is still an estimate.

    Anyway hi, Danze, so is your Z-Force 100% legitimate?

    Bro, i hope you understand that what we are doing here. it's a voluntary service. Similarly, my datasheet is accurate. Thats what i am implying.

    Fake racquets, has many tell-signs, the important thing is to be aware. Out-of-place serials number is just one of them, you only gave us serial number. We cant give you full assurance of cos, we arent Yonex.

    Hope you understand what i am saying here.

    Hope these help:

    If you are really that uncertain of this, perhaps dont trade then?
