I have enhanced the counterfeit tutorial a little bit with Yonex-AU's help (Thanks Greg from Yonex-AU).
Now it's in both Chinese and English and Yonex-AU's pictures.

Whew, it took some time time to find this topic. It's a good thing I remembered this a year back. This topic's too useful for it to be forgotten. I propose stickying it!

r there fakes of all yonex rackets or jus the higher ends 1?

It's more of the higher ends one since there's more money there. I guess it's caveat emptor in the non mall places. Why not try going to those popular sports shops to be assured?

However, you are hardly conned here in buying fake at cost of real one as the stores will openly offer fakes, even in several grades of quality, at much lower cost than real one.
In my personal experience, the skill of spotting fake Yonex rackets is useful for debunking ppl who want to show off latest/expensive Yonex rackets by using fakes.

I came across Yonex Isometric Junior series and KIDS series with serial numbers engravements in a departmental store.
Now, i'm truly confused...haha.
Someone enlighten me please? :P

Anyway, Sunrise since late 2005 sticks 2 different types of hologram stickers on their SP coded racquets in Singapore. So far, no one has posted a picture of the counterfeiters being able to fake both hologram stickers. (not that they cannot but it would probably add to much to the cost of the fake racquet so they don't bother)
Don't other countries selling Yonex racquets use hologram stickers as well?

I only know my Isometric 23vf has Sunrise hologram sticker but no serial number. Hai. Disappointed.

But i see a huge range of Isometric Junior and Isometric KIDs.
I haven't seen it elsewhere, that's why i doubted the authenticity of the products.

a friend just showed me a few ns8k fake he bought rom china last week
and yes for the record they have the engraved serial #
compared to my real one and i'd have to say i'm impressed
100 RMB and i'd be fooled if the fake one isn't 1 cm too short

Most of us here can spot a fake racket in 5 seconds, but I've just seen a fake NS9000 X that has blown me away. I've seen a lot of fake Yonex rackets, but the detailing on this thing was scary. Even though I don't like fakes, I have to say the counterfeiter did a really impressive job on this racket.
Holding a real one next to it, I can find hardly any differences, even after 10 minutes of searching every small feature. The colors, the serial codes (laser-etched), the grommets (about 4 different types I think), cone, grip, butt, plastic wrap, bar code, it's all the same.
The only clue that it might be fake is the fact that it's an SP code, with two Sunrise holographic stickers on it (one gold, one red). I know Sunrise is a genuine dealer but I also know that there are fake holographic stickers and that SP is a code popular with fakes.
The racket is 3U and when you swing it or flex the shaft, the balance feels like the real one. I will have to try it when it's been strung and probably then I will be able to tell the difference.
But on the cosmetics side, these guys are getting REALLY good
