    Some dude from UK just made a bad mistake on listing the AT800 as a 2UG3 racket. (and of course I caught this). I wrote to him/her and he wrote me back like crazy

    Now it's all good because I know he/she just made a very bad mistake only on typing. (well, what's the chances on this? 1 letter of mistake in 1000+ letters of item description is just rare )

    Anyway, I gave my best apology on bothering the seller for fakes in this case (Because he made a typo in his item description)

    The cover looks kind of to shiny compared to the one I have. But hey don't know how much you can tell from a cover.

    According to the cover I just got a titanium racquet instead of a mp88. Oe, owe you people some pics on that subject.

    Thanx to some directions I got from some of you, here the pics. I kind of think it is real. But strange stringing, missing a cross wire.

    Sticker of sunshine on butt? And titanium cover?

    I'll bet $100 that this is fake. Look at the main strings on the two sides, they are not straight. Also there are 23 cross strings instead of the standard 21 for an AT 800.

    Could be the stringer didn't know how to make good use of the extra grommet holes but I say the racket didn't have those extra grommets in the first place.

    Yes it should be real. All new Yonex rackets have the Sunrise laser sticker on them, some on the buttcap, some on the cone area.

    Also there's nothing wrong with getting a titanium bag with a muscle power racket, maybe the guy ran out of stocks, or maybe just like he said "he couldn't control the distribution of bags".

    And about the strange stringing pattern, some stringers delibrately miss out a cross string. They claim this increases power and control by 5%. However this has yet to be proved and to me this sounds like a load of bull.

    This has nothing to do with the strings. Bad strings or not, the stringing pattern doesn't change unless the structure of the frame changes.

    And I see no point in wasting money on a fake racket. Why not get something other than Yonex with the same quality for half or even one forth the price?

    If I were you, I will never gamble on this thing. The chance of losing your money to fakes is nearly 90%+.

    (I would rather spend them on buying myself a big sushi dinner)

    Fake.

    That number indicates the manufacture date is before 2002 October (because I have a MP99 that is made in Oct, 2002, with serials starting 4xxxxxx)

    However, AT 800 wasn't release in 2002. So, it's a fake.

    That's right, you need to read my post more carefully.

    I said:
    My MP99 is made in Oct, 2002. serials begins with 4xxxxxxx.
    Since the serial will NOT go down, that means, the AT800 with 3xxxxxxxx is made before my MP99, which is Oct, 2002.
    (I said my racket is in Oct, 2002 because I just gave you a shortcut. Use your common sense)


    However, AT800 wasn't release in 2002. So, that's a fake.
    Come on, It's not hard to understand.

    I'm glad you also think that the racquet is a real one. I’ll try this stringing pattern for a while and see how it plays, maybe it does feel good.
