    The pictures and desc are from YY directly. So no one can tell if he sells real or not. For that price, it better be real. Some member here can get you that pair for $70 plus $10 S/H if you look really hard.

    oh thanks, wasnt too sure since i read that thread about rackets from China
    btw how do you guys normally verify it? is there an online site or something? so i dont have to always ask and can just check on my own

    and i think i got some fake strings from a ebay auction, so i think some things on the guide were correct but since im not an expert, i wanted a second opinion. Basically i think the feel of the strings are plastic (fake) when compared to the real string (which i believe is much more smooth) and that cardboard piece that holds the string did have 2 creases (fake according to that guide) instead of 1 (real according to that guide).
    but again im not an expert, so that may or may not be accurate on comparing the strings

    again thanks for the serial check

    We use the force to check serials

    No, as you may have guessed, we don't lol. I wish we could, but we can't as most BCF members, myself included, do not posses Jedi powers. Shame, isn't it? Anyway, Leeshim (the guy who verifies all the serials in the "post your Yonex serials here thread) has a database of serials that are confirmed to be legit. From this, he is able to check rackets' authenticity as those with cone (date) codes close to the ones that are verified should have shaft serials close to them. It works like that really and because he has confirmed a lot of rackets in his thread over the years, it is possible for you to very most rackets against rackets which he has already confirmed to be legit.

    No problem.

    It gets much easier after checking more rackets - you sort of know whether a serial is too low or too high before checking it.

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex MP 99

    shaft serial: 7142957
    cone code : 180974SP
    source : user paipai, badmintoncentral.com
    price : US $96 (used)
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----


    I'm looking to buy his racket, I want to make sure it isn't a fake. It looks real (MP strip, curving cone, clean paint job, etc) but I just want to take this one last precaution before I buy it.

    OK, just to give you a bit of background on your racket, it was made on the 18th of September 2007 and intended for distribution in the south Pacific region.

    Upon my inspection, the serials appear to indicate it is a legitimate racket so you should have no problems. You may want to wait for someone else to confirm its legitimacy first but I thing it'll be fine.
