    It is definitely a fake, I have no doubts about it

    The alignment as well as the Yonex logo are very different from the original ones.

    if you have the packaging, the is something unique about Yonex's packaging.

    if you try to tear open the package via the serrated seal, genuine Yonex packages tears pretty easily. while the fake one (at least the one i tried) don't tear.

    Sorry. I gave the package of string back to my client along with a sample of my own bg-80 as a comparison. Aside from the fact that the string felt totally smooth (no bumpy texture) I think the hologram differences was the giveaway.
