    Comparison between the Original OF and Fake DE

    See the cone.. and the picture of the PBSI. The fake's shaft is slightly longer than the orginal one.

    Well just see the pics, you can already identify the fakes.. see the grommets , the shafts , the seal etc..

    yes, with magnified images. However, most buyers aren't that informed nor bring along magnified glasses when shopping for rackets. I have to admit the fakes are getting better and better comestically.

    The real one.. at the zero in the middle there is green and red. The fake one REd only. If you see the Defence word.. the letter D connects to the dark green.. when the fake the letter D have some space.

    Ants, fake makers aren't consistence as yonex so the differences seen from 1 comparion may not extend to other batches of fakes. We are picking on some really small details here, even I don't know yonex are that consistent either. Remember at one time some said mp 90 and mp99 have slight different shades of yellow?

    The "FAKE AT800" Review.

    When i first hold it , i already know its a fake.. its too light. Even balanced or head light. When i use it to hit , i felt so much vibration. It was strung with bg66. No power , no stability. I'm sure the OF version of fake will also be the same , just that the color is OF color.


    Kwun : the fake is from one of my friend. based on my source , OF version will come out in maybe 2 or 3 weeks time. DE "original" version is more sellable , so they make the DE fake's first.

    I put both rackets on the table standing , The left one is the REAL. right one is the fake. If you can see the fake silver paint overlapped the original one. Both are AT800.

    This is probably the best indication of the difference. The others are quite minute IMHO.
    Yes the fakes are getting better & it's impossible to tell one form the other thru the naked eye.
    Just got the DE version yesterday - glad to know I have the Genuine version..
    Thanks for the pics.
