either yonex is inconsistant or your info is wrong.
In the close up of the shafts you say on the real racket the "d" in defensive touches the boarder. On all the pictures in the offical yonex literature, as well as on my racket which was bought from a reputable dealer days after the offical release in japan, the "d" in defensive does NOT touch the boarder.

I hope the fake manufacturers don't stumble onto this forum and see the Serial Number thread. If they modify the fake serials to conform to the trend, then that'll really make it difficult to weed them out.

It is a matter of investing money in a laser engraver.

can u try spinning the shaft of the fake racquet in between the tip of ur thumb and middle finger?? I've gone through two fake racquets before (MP100 and Ti10) and they are very bumpy when you spin them. All high end Yonex racquets that I've experimented are perfectly round so when you spin the racquet, it doesn't rock back and forth. Thanx!

not a reliable guide.
drawing conclusion from 2 fakes is insufficient

The only difference in comparing the fakes and the original , is the weight , grommets , balance, engraved serial numbers and also the sticker.. Cosmetic wise is very hard to see because is almost identical.

A suggestion to the fake manufacturers, make your own brand called "Generic" version. Like the drug store in US, you can get a "generic" drug, or a "brand" name drug.
Do not get me wrong, "generic" does not mean fake, it simply implies the quality is close or similar to the name brand but the price is cheaper. Actually, I was surprised to find out few of my friends who are pharmacists recommend "generic" because it makes little to no difference compared to the name brand.
With this "Generic" racquets, it is win-win situation for everyone. To manufacturers, they can pay loyalty fees to Yonex for using its technologies and avoid jail time. For dealers, they can sell one more brand. For consumers, they can choose between 2 brands. Just my 2 cents....

The internal T joint is patented and not for sale. So the only things that the faker can copy is racket shape and paint color, things they can fool buyer's eyes. Even rolex watches where all the mechanical components can be easily dissembled and identifed, no one yet had made an exact copy of rolex and sell for less.
margarine is man's copy of butter, actually claimed to be better than butter (vegetable oil base).
- real butter taste better than margarine in raw and in baking
- real butter is less harmful than margarine even when margarine is vegetable oil based and butter is animal saturated fat.
- if margarine is under fda as generic drug, it wont pass the first level of fda
since fake racket doesnt kill people, it is not regulated
No, i'm not a pharmacist

Exactly, Companies like Yonex will not issue any license or so to any fake company to let them to make identical ones (fakes). Imagine an agent of a fake racquet company goes to Yonex's office and tell them "I would like to copy your racquets, and sell it for profit." Do you think Yonex will let them do it?

What do you guys think of this AT800 on Ebay. Seller states they're SP, but he hasn't sold any racquets prior to this as I can see...it's a bit iffy. none of his other items come to even near the price range.
He's got other items too. He's selling both the OF and DF...should or souldn't buy? I really want the AT800...sigh...the JP version's so expensive...
