    Default How To Tell A Fake Racket

    MP99 was first introduced in 2002, the serial number has it as 2000...

    Leeshim said it already, so why still go on about the racquet? It's fake 100% already
    I recently bought a Musclepower 100 from Malaysia. It was chipping regularly, and it was supposed to be "extra stiff" but it was Flexible.

    I called Yonex Canada, and they told me how to tell if any yonex racket is real or fake:

    There should be two sets of serial numbers on the racket. Both near the handle. If the serial numbers are printed on, the racket is fake.
    If the serial numbers are Engraved, the racket is Genuine.

    That is how you tell a fake racket from a real one.

    Thanks for that. But then again, how do you tell if the serials are engraved ?? I can't tell the difference.

    Use your finger to run across the serial number. You'd feel the grooves of the serial number just like mahjong pieces. If you feel a smooth texture over the numbers then it's a fake for sure

    Curving on metal and curving on other materials may be quite different...

    not true, my friend recently purchased a fake nanospeed 7000, the serial was engraved, therefore even if the serial is engraved, it can still be fake. Think about it, the fakers are catching on! The serial was actually genuine with the date being correct. The only way to tell was to compare the paint job with the orginal and the weight. The string was also not yonex lol. + from ebay!

    Yes, I agree with splitstep. I have seen a very 'good' fake of NS8000 too. The serial number is engraved too although it is not as deep and as clear as the real one.

    I also agree that the serial number can be copied and engraved too, but the paint job and especially the paint quality is usually different.

    To valkyier: sorry to hear that you purchased this fake MP99. I think you should try to get your money back.

    Default Can others get access to the list of serial numbers ?

    Muscle Power 99 was released around March 2002.
    In my list, there is an MP99 with serial no. of 3747904 but with date code of 270322SP (date=27 Mar 2002).
    IMHO the Muscle Power 99 3748567 260302CH is a fake.

    The eBay is full of fake rackets right now, watch out for MP100, Nano 8000, and Nano 7000 and Armortec 800 .
    I have an MP100 from one 'seller' which Yonex Japan say is fake
    and an Armortec which is also fake.
    Once you compare the 'etched' numbers against a real racket, there is a distinct difference (and the grips feel different too)
