    Possibly $125/w shipping without strings for one racket. Not both...

    These two rackets look quite real to me.

    Default Fakes!!!

    Although they both look real, I think they are fake since the batch number is incorrect. The year listed on the racquet is 2006 while we are no where near year 2006. I don't think Yonex would make a mistake as big as this which makes me think that these are fake.

    They look so real, almost exact identical to the real ones. I am very scared of buying racquets from an unknown source now, especially in Asia.

    The batch number shows 2004 & 2005 not 2006.

    Default looks ok

    it is original as far as i can tell. I just came from thailand yonex store and the wrapping is exactlt the same. note the second to the last pic with the sticker with thai words on the handle. i asked the shop what it meant and the girl told me that supposedly it means that it is imported from abroad. all fakes i saw did not have this sticker

    fyi the price for at 800 was about 110 $, mp 100 at about 100 all strung.

    I thought the very last number denotes the year, does it not?

    Negative, sir. The second from the last, e.g. 5 in 170258TH, is the year digit.

    Looks original to me, one thing we can't tell from the picture i, how the painjob is properly done or not and if you can smell glue on the racket. Check also if the shaft and the frame don't sound too hollow. All the fakes sound hollow due to cut down on material.

    One thing you can check is the yonex logo. The correct Yonex logo should be like this

    http://www.yonex.com/mediacenter.cfm

    I have seen different styles of the "YY" from fake racket or the YY is separately too far apart.

    In my opinion, your MP99 is real (I recently bought a MP99 from China, I do not find anything different from your picture except I have a MP99 followed by a "CH" symbol).

    I just got exactly the same one as your MP100 today from an ebay seller sumai03
    It also has exactly the same serial: 090146TH...can someone just correct me, do most (if not all) fake Yonex rackets have an SP serial rather than TH one?

    I'm going to try this racket out soon....hopefully it's genuine....
