    They may be genuine but you really aren't saving a great deal by buying on ebay. I'd recommend you buy from more reputable sources.

    Seriously dude, it's a grip - what does it matter if it's Yonex or not?

    Good point lol. If you bought a fake Yonex grip (if people actually bother to fake them), the performance might not be any good though.

    Ask for bigger picture, check the Yonex logo on finishing tape. Or buy one and try. Fake usually disintegrates quickly(1-2 hours of play) and they feel very close to cloth instead of PU material.

    Unfortunately I've bought some fake ones. It's easy to tell once you use them.

    150315020459 looks fake to me as the Y>O<NEX looks weird. The 'O' of Yonex is usually less oval. Also, the 'YY' has very bad quality print. The edges are blunt, a genuine high quality YY print has sharp edges.
