Hi, As you can see below I put the Serial and cone code of my MP44 on the 'Post your Yonex serial numbers here' thread but Leehsim was unable to confirm whether my racket was a genuine Yonex on the basis of this alone. It has been suggested to me that I should add some photos as a number of you can positively spot a fake / genuine Yonex in an instant so please have a look at the shots below and give me your opinion. I only bought it last weekend so if their are any problems with it then I will be going back to see him. Thanks in advance, Jonathan Today, 04:30 AM #1961 leehsim vbmenu_register("postmenu_570391", true); Location: Singapore Posts: 1,666 Quote: Originally Posted by jrcjon Quote: Originally Posted by jrcjon racket model: Yonex Muscle Power 44 shaft serial: 4785308 cone code : 210242UK source : Purchased privately through a advert in local "Trade-It" classified adverts newspaper I hope someone can assure me this is an Authentic Yonex MP44 racket. Having only just taken up Badminton I would hate to turn up to my local club for the first time next week with a fake. I think I have followed a number of the useful tips on buying Rackets on this forum such as buying a 'UK' racket and have hopefully bought a genuine Yonex but can someone please confirm? Many thanks Jonathan Hi Leehsim, I have checked the shaft serial and cone code and they are definitely as above. Is their a problem with my racket? Thanks for your time. Jonathan In my list there is Armortec 800OF with the serial of 4783688 and cone code of 250242JP (date=25 Feb 2004). Compare with your Muscle Power 44 of 4785308 210242UK (date=21 Feb 2004) , it is a case of smaller serial but 4 day after yours. I have no way to explain and confirm your MP 44.
