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

    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).

    100% fake.

    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:

    real:

    4828293 220342SP

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...2sp#post169110

    fake from radioheady, probably from the same manufacturer:

    4828445 220342SP

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...2sp#post167626

    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.

    I think it could be either in here or equipment forum because we are talking about Fake rackets selling here.

    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..

    Default 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.
