Yes, it's a fake LOL

The PBSI logo is too big and too distorted, and I am certain it's a fake racquet.

wrapping too loose, pbsi logo too big, and serial number on the butt cap. definitely 100% fake. nice fake though

also, the "high modulus graphite+ultimum titatanium" and "ultra light weight/head heay blance/made in japan" lettering are suppose to be in black instead of white (unless my SP version AT800DF is the fake one).

it looks like fake manufacturers are getting a better grasp of the meaning of the serial and date code, the date code is in the acceptable range:
fake from radioheady, probably from the same manufacturer:
however, this also means that if we see a suspicious racket with 220342SP as the datecode, there is more evidence that it is a fake.

Was wondering the same thing - my 800DE (Jp) doesn't have it...so I "panicked" for a while there....
Think this post should be in the equipment forum tho...not marketplace

That just racket sort of confirms that sportsinternational is indeed radioheady2000...
Both from Hong Kong
Both has exact same 'quality' fake at800 with serial no - which btw should be a bit slanted.
Both have lots of rackets to sell. from what i gather radiohaeady has 30 of de and 30 of of to off load. And when radio dissapear, sportsinternational came up..

Definitely a fake, just look at the grip different from those shown below.

One's man trash an other's treasure
Thank you all for your comments !
"sportsinternational" is no longer a registered user
from Ebay so your work has paid off.
I had the racket strung with bg85/21lbs and it hits good, just dunno what a real one would be.
I will now jump smash myself to the wall for buying fake Yonex.
