    All other codes (UK, GR, DK, etc..etc..) are only coded on the codes. This may be because they are of different quality and so different spec/place of manufacture, but lets not go into that!!
    I may be stating the obvious but, there are also genuine SP rackets with only SP laser engraved on the cone. These are genuine Singapore rackets.

    can anyone explain this to me?

    Marketing Marketing, or a yonex corporation secret.


    This is not the point of this thread however, the point is that the SP on the shaft doesn't make it a fake. This is already a big thread, and to make it useful to newcomers looking for a racket try to keep it to spotting fakes.

    99% sure they are fake or you are not going to get a racquet at all. All of the pictures are jsut download and past. If you transfer the money, bye bye your money and he can steal your account number too...

    Yes, Sumai03 sells authentic rackets; I've purchased 4 Yonex rackets from him, all confirmed authentic and he is a Badminton Central confirmed authentic seller.

    awesome, now which to buy i've been using a mp 33, so i'm more used to mp series, but i've read reviews here that says mp 100 is fragile, and hard to use, heavy, etc. As for the AT 700, i have tried it with 68ti strings at 23, when smashing i felt vibrations through out my arm, but great speed and control, maybe it's just me . i'm definately an attack player, but i'm having a hard time choosing.. red and powerful or quick and precise.

    Keizuna, I'm no expert but can tell you the MP100 is a very powerful racket *if* you can flex the shaft. Also, you have to be more precise, the sweetspot is not as generous.

    I have an MP100 but decided to switch to the MP99 because I play mostly doubles and feel the MP99 is more balanced, with a larger sweetspot.

    But if you play singles, for power, can hit the sweet spot consistently and flex that shaft, the MP100 is hard to beat. You will be bombing your opponent.

    Why are you even looking at an item from china with prices too low to believe. Also, I have never hear of BG-80ti string.
