    Just a reminder. Do you really think posting genuine serial numbers is safe? If a fake racquets maker find these information, he can use those genuine numbers on his product. Then nobody can validate if it's genuine from the serial number. Besides, the faker get SN from all over the world, so the fake racquets can be sold world wide.
    The price can not be a proof, a fake racquet can also be sold with a sky high price just like Yonex.

    What is the difference? The counterfeit racket maker can simply walk into the racket store which sells genuine rackets and simply write down the numbers.

    Price and serials alone is not enough to determine if it's a genuine racket. The customer needs to know what the genuine one looks like and also if they got it from a reliable source (ie. Yonex Authorized Dealer).

    Collecting genuine numbers in real life is much difficult than collecting hundreds of numbers on network, which is much easier (like in this thread). With hundreds numbers, fakers can evenly distribute them to fake racquets. This make it more difficult to identify the fake racquets.

    The only way to prevent this is to set up a "authorized one time authentic serial number". One serial number should be authenticated only once by a sole authorized department or institution. And the serial number should be kept security, but not public like in this thread.

    Yonex authorized dealers generally are more reliable, but the prices there are normally more expensive.

    Ok point taken. Right now the fake makers have not made any so-called perfect rackets so far however it would be still a concern because the unsuspected fall for them.

    time and time again this comes up, if you know what are the indications of a genuine racquet, then you know what to look for if you suspect that a racquet is counterfeit. yes the codes can be copied but like Matt said, there has not been a perfect counterfeit as of yet.

    It's true that "there has not been a perfect counterfeit as of yet", but just think about the reason why this thread exist.

    Yes, I get what you're saying but that is why leeshim always remind the racquet owner that checking the serial and date code is not sufficient to determine whether or not the racquet is genuine.

    What you are forgetting is that in case a real number combination get's copied from this thread it is already in the database so should it pop up again, newly bought, there is no way it can be genuine. Only if it's second hand .
    Obviously when we walk in a store without being able to check the database it would indeed be hard which is probably what you meant in the first place .

    Ok, let me guess leeshim's work flow of validating:
    1. leeshim get a SN here
    2. leeshim connect to the Yonex's main SN database and check if the SN is valid
    3. If the SN is valid, then in the main database this SN is marked as CHECKED, and the reseller of this SN will be recoreded.
    4. If somebody else (no matter if s/he's a agent in client center or somebody like leeshim) try to validate the same SN in the main database, s/he will be told that this SN has been used elsewhere.

    If this is the workflow, then a "authorized one time authentic serial number" system has been setup. And we don't need to worry about SN being reused. If it isn't, then my worry is reasonable.

    When I walk in a store, I can read the producing date and selling area from the cone SN, and I know approximate starting number of main SN for this cone SN. If the SN looks OK and the racquet looks and feels OK, and the price is not strange, then I will have confidence to buy it. But this is not the case for many other racquet users. For them, the SN might be the only method to check if the product is genuine. So I think it might be better to keep this method safe for them.

    By the way, from ryim's reply "leeshim always remind the racquet owner that checking the serial and date code is not sufficient to determine whether or not the racquet is genuine.", I can see that a "authorized one time authentic serial number" system has not been setup. The SN will be checked in database to see if Yonex has this SN, but can't be told how many times this SN has been used. So the danger exists there.

    I have checked in the information of your Yonex
    1) Arc Saber 10 Shaft Serial:7404780; Cone Code:280182SP (date=28 Jan 2008);
    2) Ti 10 (Purple) Shaft Serial:7461780; Cone Code:190288SP (date=19 Feb 2008)
    to my information list of Yonex rackets made in Japan, their shaft serials and cone codes are legitimate.

    However you still need to inspect the other physical features of the rackets carefully and compare the specifications to ascertain their total legitimacy or authenticity yourself.
