First of all, thanks everybody for contributing helpful info on this forum. Has helped me a lot and this list is brilant!
I just received a racquet bought on ebay from a seller of genuine stuff according to you guys, but strangely enough there is a "sunrise genuine" sticker on the bottom green cap over the yonex logo. Has anyone seen this before? Is this normal for a "sp" version or something?
Also the mp88 came in a titanium cover, he said that he can't control what kind of covers the distributor sends him. Well, I kind of don't buy that.
If anyone can enlighten me about the buttcap-thing, thanks. And do you believe that cover-thing?

Regarding to the pics, better including:
1. Serial #s: both the shaft and cone
2. Butt cap
3. MP gromments, i.e. close to the throat
4. Shaft where clearly showing the letters

one question ppl, if its really hard to tell from a fake or real racket even on the
performance , then isnt it the same having a fake or real racket ? n the good fakes 1 r way cheaper.....???
yonex is a big rip off!!!

If you put the racket in a display case, and that's the only thing you do with it, then sure.
Anyway, the issue here is deception. Passing off a fake as a real racket, and getting real Yonex prices on fake rackets.

If you want the performance without the cost why not buy one of the clones rather than support the fake market.
We the racket buying public would the first to cry should Yonex pull out of the badminton racket due to loss in sales caused by fakes.

Now, to the topic of Yonex. The reason it is so popular is because they offer a consisitent and predictable line of racquets in terms of performance and tolerance. You pick up an MP99, and you know that it is a stiff racket, with an even balance and is great for doubles. The point is that I know I can just go get another one and it'll behave the same as my current one. There is also a lot of existing testimonial attesting to how it will work that can be used, but only because the tolerance between each unit is good.
A clone on the other hand can vary all over the map in terms of performance. A fake will never have the same structural rigidity of a real one. There will not be a lot of advice anyone else can give you because there is no way to tell if this version of a fake is the same as another. Do they flex the same? Can it hold the same tension before collapsing? No body knows.
In the end, the user will have to do a lot of testing before settling on a racket they like when chosing from a pool of clones and fakes. This time and effort is worth money. The simplicity of knowing what you will be getting is one factor that needs to be included into the "Why is Yonex more expensive?" discussion. Do not dismiss the price premium immediately as a rip off.

You need to take pictures yourself and make sure pictures are clear if you want us to help you.
Also, if it is an auction item, post the link of the auction so we can take a look at the description.
