@ matt .. very correctly said mate... i did get confused to some extent though... but yaa.. rough idea.. definitely...
@maa -- i have thought o some chekpoints on identifying the duplicate... kindly help if these will do...
1. Serial no. to b engraved abd not printed... also the one on the cone cap should have the format as DDMMYYxDC .. DC is distribution code...
2. paint job chek.. chek for rough edges too...
3. grommets chek... smooth finish...
4. grip to b packed in a tight polythene and not loosely packed with a barcode on it...
i hope this will help... kindly guide pls...

Yes, I personally tried to take off the "Yonex" hologram sticker myself, and my racquet is from JP. It's hard to take it off because it broke into halves after I was peeling it half way off...

I tried it on my JP racquet because there was a bubble and I tried to squeez it out, but turn out that the bubble won't come out and I tried to take the sticker off because it doesn't look nice with the bubble. Proven that the sticker is security proofed and cannot be taken down in whole.

Anyway, I don't see why you would choose those two racquets, perhaps budget restrain? I would choose something like Nanospeed 800, the red one because it can stay with you longer as you develop your techniques and muscles.

For PBSI logo sticker, most Asia-Pacific region codes will have it except CH, CP, and TW. I don't know about HK racquets though, never owned one...

For low end rackets, the possibility of obtaining a fake is lower because the fake peopel make less profit, compared to making fakes of the high-end rackets.
If you have pictures of your racket, we could see if it's genuine if you would like.

i ll post them shortly man... though its definitely fake cozz the model name itself has never been heard by anypne//// CS-007 ... the lowest i knw is B series and this is not even tht... has a aluminium shaft... one strange thing is tht it has the sunrise hologram on it.. which kinda confuses me... any idea on the same?
