    Hey everyone! how you all doing?? all well I hope!! :)

    I need some help and advice as I recently bought a a new offensive racket (MP99)..however I am at odds end in its genuinity mainly because of the serial number. This product was bought online at http://www.ukrackets.com/shop/ which is an official authorised yonex stockist..http://www.yonex.co.uk/Badminton/Page.aspx?ID=202&County=WILTSHIRE
    However I need some help to put my mind at rest so here are some pics so you judge for yourselves..

    Thanks a bunch!!

    seriously....what the....

    -It's a UK dealer
    -It has a UK serial
    -You bought it at an official dealer
    -You paid a normal price (maybe a bit high-ish...maybe very high)
    -yonex itself says it sell their rackets

    what could you want more?

    no no, I'm not angry, or pissed...it's just very obvious:eek:

    if they sold fake rackets they wouldn't be on the UK-distributors list...btu what do you think is wrong with the serial then? Looks alright to me...

    just saw my at500's serial..everythign looks the same, "laser engraved" doesn't mean you can feel the relief (it's not etched)

    you can rest assured that it's the real deal. the serials look fine, the racquet looks fine and if yonex list them as an authorised seller, it'll be hard to go wrong.

    Thumbs up! :D. The pictures support that it is genuine considering you purchased it from an authorized dealer.

    I'd be suspicious of anybody who sells a new MP99 for $150 Canadian. Sounds like he might be an expert at fakes because he may have a few.
