    Are you serious? the shaft ser # is incorrect. Even w/o the ser#, I am sure the racquet is 100% real from Gary_seeker.

    Ryim, that doesn't really make sense. The codes posted are those on the racket. As mentioned there hasn't yet been a UK coded counterfeit and I'd be nothing short of amazed if the chosen distibution method for such a counterfeit was one of Yonex UK's authorised stockists with 30+ years standing.

    I'm pretty comfotable the racket is genuine (unless anyone can offer any clear evidence to the contrary, other than the codes), but clearly the numbers are different to those currently referred to so some forther discussion is welcome.

    Lastly, I'm not the only one with a racket coded thus. It would be more than coincidence in my opinion.

    Cheers

    A few things that I would like to highlight in this case.

    Firstly, I would not know what codes are laser engraved on your racket. However, the serial and date code you posted were in indeed counterfeit. The reason I say that is because there have been rackets manufactured after yours (27-Oct-09) and the serials did not start over again. Is there a logical reason that they started over? At least I can't think of any.

    The best solution is to post close up pictures so we can all inspect whether the racket is genuine or not. Even though there has not been any counterfeit UK coded rackets to date, it does not mean that this one is genuine.

    Mark,

    I have no reason to believe that your racquet is a counterfeit, since you have posted the photo of the handle with the appropriate Yonex bar code sticker. I have owned a generous amount of genuine Yonex racquets from most of the production periods and the statement about checking for the bar code sticker in question was indeed written by me. Remember me stating that "most people are too ignorant to understand what this sticker means"?

    Thanks Blitzzards.

    I guess the next question (assuming there is agreement the racket is genuine) is where did it come from and why do the numbers differ. Apologies if this matter is stealing away from the true nature of this thread.

    Cheers

    With due respect Ryim, I'm not going to back someone on an internet forum over a company I (and thousands of players in the UK) have a lot of respect for on the basis that you don't think it makes sense the numbers should have restarted (I'm very aware of what the numbers say, but they aren't out of sequence.... they are altogether different is my point).

    As already mentioned, there is an NZ coded Arcsaber Z-Spark with a similar date and a similar serial, which hints that there may in fact be a second production line for high end Yonex rackets. I can't rule that out, and until Yonex UK tell me otherwise, I stand by the racket being genuine. Clearly I may be wrong, but the balance of the evidence is in my favour at the moment (in my opinion).

    Cheers

    Thank you for awesome service!!!
    I have checked in the information of your Yonex Nanospeed 850 shaft Serial:2983664; Cone Code:161294US (date=16 Dec 2009) to my information list of Yonex rackets Developed by Yonex Japan (on the shaft) and Made in Taiwan (on the cap), its shaft serial and cone code are legitimate.

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

    Nothing major in terms of update - Yonex UK can't confirm an individual racket other than by checking it against the same items in their warehouse. The guy I spoke with did this and confirmed all other NS9900 items had serial starting 88 or 89. Next port of call is for him to check with Yonex Japan to determine what, if any, reason could account for my serial. I guess this will take several days at the very least.

    I also spoke with the shop owner who confirmed the batch of rackets came directly from Yonex UK (and I have no reason to doubt this) and that the remaining NS9900 have cone codes 88 and 89.

    In a little bit of a funny position to be honest. The shop were very keen to find out the answer too but guess I need to wait on Yonex Japan giving an answer. I get the impression the presence of that barcode on the handle (what was the deal with the screw as well?) indicates a genuine item but the question on the serial remains for now.

    Will update when I can.

    Cheers
