    just see the available picture, and i'm sure a beginner can't determine this is fake or not, except they're really experienced in YY:)

    The racquet looks real, but not sure why it doesnt have the pbsi logo or golden yonex sticker..
    It's best to post the serial number so that someone can interperate whether it is fake or real, otherwise.. don't buy it just yet.

    That's what I have heard also about this small hole on the YY logo.
    It was for national player.
    Yes, the serial number is engraved.

    It has golden Yonex sticker and looks original same like mine AT900T SP code, only different weight. My AT900T is 3Ug4 and the weight (empty) is 87 gram, this one is 3Ug5 and the weight (empty also) is 90-91 gram and that's quite bothering me :confused: 90-95gram is 2U right? Stiff and head heavy feel is just same like mine.
    This racket is bought by my friend and he is already compare this to my racket and all detail is exactly same. The Yonex hologram, cosmetic, green color on the bottom YY logo. The different is only ( PBSI missing symbol not count :) ) about the strange hole and 2 spot on YY symbol, my at of course didnt have hole like that and i buy at my best friend store who i believed 100% never sell fake to me.
    If this racket is fake then the maker is absolutely have great job since i cant find any difference more than 2 point above.
    Hole & weight matter answer is really help for me, Thx for any help :)

    There we go again.
    Do you all read Leehism's disclaimer at the bottom of his verifications. Just because the serial is good DOES NOT make a racket legit!!! Please refrain from making comments like these, it is misleading to other members.

    Then how are we supposed to tell whether the racquet is legit or not?:confused:

    It really depends on the serial & where the racquet originated from.

    well you can look at the yonex logo on the bottom of your handle and compare it with the one at yonex.com :S and use other racquets to make comparisons.

    The serials matching the datecode is just one way of verifying the authenticity of a racket. You still have to inspect the racket & its features to determine its legitimacy.
    So, let me ask you this question, do you really beleive that there are absolutely no rackets out there in the market with the "correct" serial code and datecode that are fakes???

    Again, that is just one way to determine to authenticity of the racket; please bear in the mind that the serials being legit does not make the racket legit; You still have to inspect the features on the racket & compare them to the originals. Or just buy it from an authorized dealer, which makes this whole process so much simpler!!!!!

    like they said, the holes aren't a problem, it's just the distributor's way of marking his racquets. i've got holes in the caps of my old ti-10s, they are IP coded as well, and i got them from a trusted source so i know they're alright.
