Just joined in so please excuse me if it has been addressed already. I thought while posting the serials for checking is a fine idea, however, what if it falls into the wrong hands, like imitations copying the serials also so that it checks out fine when called in for Yonex's verification?

It seems nobody bothers that this well-intentioned thread could be festered with copycats. All the legit serials are just the right meal ticket for the imitators to fall prey on...

here's what I do when I buy a racket
1. Make sure I know the store I am going to buy something from is legit
2. Look at the price if it looks too good to be true then it probaly is
3. Look at the serials on the racket make sure that they look ok and legit check the paint and if you buy online search BC to make sure they are legit
Some things you never do
Buy from eBay, sellers that are selling below market prices, or newsystore etc

also pay via credit card or paypal because if it's fake you can claim money back within a certain period of time

If it gets mixed with the real ones, they should probably sell the same amount as the real ones, correct? So, how to tell, even legit ones have minuscule imperfections too, right?
What to do now, post the serial numbers here but then it checks out! That's what scares me!

Yeah they probaly do have very slight imperfections but you can tell the difference as the real yonex ones usually would not pass QC and therefore get destroyed
They could probaly copy the serials but people who buy these rackets get them without prior viewing usually through eBay and therefore they do not see the serials and therefore they can just make it up
Additional information some people who buy these fakes don't have the means to check if they are fake because they are not clever enough to use BCDF

Lets say, just DVDs, a lot of people fall fall those easily and lots of counterfeits is on eBay or some cheap shops.

Please allow me a minute. Sometimes, we frequent shops that are dear to us and they can be the smaller-type kind of shop, yes they sell authorized Yonex products, but probably they are only fed a few rackets of each kind by legitimate agents from Distributors or Resellers of Yonex. However, the store/shop owners never ever engaged directly with Yonex, thus, how could they ever know if sometimes fakes crept into their inventories?
As a regular and long time consumer we might felt embarassed (it's our money so we must dare ask, I get that...) to ask those combative questions. You know what I mean, it's almost a bond was already created as a long time client and all of a sudden, we pop the legitimacy question? The owner would then like: What you don't know me through the years?
Of course, these stores/shops never imagined nor willingly wanted to peddle fakes that will eventually lead back to them.
I do understand perfectly well that this thread meant all the good in this badminton world of ours. It's just that the question keeps coming back: are we doing the right thing more? If yes, then obviously we are in the right direction, hence I would also post my serials. However, if it feeds to the wrong masses...
