AT500 Real or Fake?
Hi Guys...I just got my AT500 today...I am posting some photos...please let me know if you think its real or fake...to me everything tells me its real...the paintjob...like the details and the yonex logo...is not so good...must be because its a TH model and not a JP...Also since its a TH model should it have PBSI logo on the cone? not necessarily?

Basic thing to check the originality of a YONEX racket I do is to look for its serial no....
First, it should be inscribed on the cone... and secondly, it should follow the pattern that we have heavily discussed in the forum under thread "post your serial numbers"... to me , the one put on your racket looks a good one.. 150146TH...
looks that your racket is Real and not fake one...

is there a reason why you think it is a fake?

Hey Kwun...whats up...actually I am pretty sure its a real Yonex racket...I just had a 1 % doubt...cause the paint job on it was pretty sucky...especially the Yonex Logo on the T-joint...as you can see...the left circle has like a paint drip or a drag...making the circle slightly tear drop shaped...I havent bought a racket in a while so I really hadn't look one up close so I just wanted some opinion...

Looks real enough for me..................if it is not, you can always pretend it real

I second that bluejeff...Originally Posted by bluejeff
This is my first ever high end racket so I WOULDnt want it to be a fake!
I have been playing for 18years now and with the same racket...a yonex my dad bought when I was in standard 5....its an aluminium frame and metal shaft...dont know the weight...but around 100+ grams...but it feels light to me cause I have used it for so long...I am now trying to figure out its model...its a really low end model...I repainted over the shaft and cone like 2 times...so I cant see the model no. on the cone...It looks like it says B-650...can anyone remember or know this racket? it was bought like in 1987...the head frame is blue metallic silverish...and the cone is pastel/teal green...been through a lot with this racket...

Since you live in LA (from your location), is there any Yonex dealer around LA?
You might want to take a drive and pick a racket you like at the store. So you wouldn't have any problem with fake/real racket and you can actually have the rackets on your hands and feel it yourself.
