    but anyways, here's the link to the seller, what do you guys think? selling fakes or not?

    First, your link doesn't work.

    Second, there is no "normal" version. All Yonex rackets have a region code. SP is the most popular one as they sell the most in the "South Pacific" region.

    There are a ton of different codes out there and your stringer obviously has no idea what he's talking about. I'm sure all the japanese yonex racket owners would be surprised to learn their JP coded rackets are fake considering they are made in Japan...

    Canada is CD, USA is US, South Pacific is SP, China is CH, Japan is JP, Thailand is TH... etc.

    The paint is slightly misplaced.
    but when u play with the 2 racquets they're the same o__o.

    The fake one broke at jan 2010 by doing a clear -.-
    The real one however is still fine.

    So basicly real and fake not much difference except one dies after a year or so o.o

    AND IF YOU DO WANT TO BUY A FAKE ONE WHATEVER YOU DO DONT STRING IT WITH HIGH TENSION O_O.
    YOUR RACQUET WILL SNAPPPPP.

    The real ones wont xD
    a proficient player should and can tell the difference between real and a fake copy.
    If your fake one died so soon, there have to be difference in material and quality manufacturing. Is it quite impossible to
    believe your fake plays like the real one. The cost to match all the performance parameters to a real one take $$$$, far
    more than the cost of a fake.

    Hey... suppose I got a MP-Tour, but the color at the bottom is slightly lighter than my other yonex rackets, and also the yonex sticker thing is square instead of oval... is it most likely fake or real? B/c I bought it at a place that sells mostly real rackets and also at the normal price ($129)... I'm stumped.

    most of counterfeits use SP serial numbers....it can be fake or real...so better check other aspects for confirmation

    the most obvious thing is the 'PRICE'...the best way is to compare with the genuine ones from the official stores...my advice is only to buy at the official stores and and their websites for online shopping...
