1. A small screw holding the shaft to the wood, appears to a lot of legit racket models, be it Yonex or other leading brands.
2. The carry bag is provided by distributor/dealer, and is NOT a standard from Yonex. A cheaper bag does not say the racket must be fake. A top quality bag still can contain a bad-made fake.

CHINESE FAKES NEVER HAVE A SCREW HOLDING GRIP TO SHAFT AND THEY NEVER HAVE THE T-JOINT.....
I have never seen a Yonex sold with a cheap bag like the ones supplied with
Chinese fakes...I have bought a couple hundred chinese fakes so I think I know what I am talking about. The Chinese fakes are supplied with a bag and they are all the same and of very cheap quality....You could put a real Yonex in a cheap bag if you wanted but who would want to do that?
Many good rackets screw the grip to shaft but NONE of the fakes do that...
Would you but a Yonex for 100usd that was supplied with a 50 cent bag?
Maybe they have different fakes in USA...

pardon my ignorance but what do u mean by grip screwed to shaft? how do we observe that when making a purchase?

If you are going to buy the racket for sure if it is real then simply unwrap the tape from the top of the grip and the small staple and unwind one wrap of the grip and you will see a small screw going through the wood grip into the shaft.....The shaft is glued to the grip also but the screw is an added precaution to prevent it from slipping or shifting position....

The way to prevent buying fakes, and get urself out of useless argument is to shop in reputable stores.
