Are these rackets strung correctly?
Isn't the top corner gromet supposed to contain the Cross string and then the next gromit down is supposed to contain the Main string?
And so no one has a good way to notice fakes huh? I have come across a fake yonex racket, but it was obvious. It had its serial numbers painted on (not engraved) and the colors were off.
Oh yah to DinkAlot for waiting so long to tell everyone the truth.

Long time reader, first time poster
I was a victim of a super good AT800 OF fake recently (for $108US!!), which sparked me to start reading these forums.
So I am new to this guessing game
I think #1 is the only real racquet. #2 and #3 are fake...
Same reason that Zasboy said on page 2, the location of the Ti is off compared to the gromet.
In addition, the gromet lengths seem a touch long on #2 and #3 also.
I also find the handle bottom (green part) to be larger on #1 than #2 and #3. Which seems like a real G4.
Also the paint fade (blue to silver) near the cap on #1 seems different than #2 and #3. The fade ends before the "nanoscience" logo on #1, but goes up to it on #2 and #3.
That's it for my guess...
So, how many more guesses are you looking for before releasing the solution...
Also, please mention how the fakes play in a game. They got the style, but are they vibrating crowbars during a smash like my fake is?
A few 1600x1200 pictures of a NS9000S in auction (I know, I know, I got burnt and I'm back on eBay) of what I believe is a real raqcuet for more compares...

And the answer...drum roll please...
...all are real, authentic U.S. coded Yonex rackets, straight from Yonex.

With all of the rackets are genuine, I just can't think why they are such a difference for racket manufactured for different places?

haha... So all are real. I guess badminton racquets are like snowflakes. #1 really did look slightly different than #2 and #3
So the lesson, maybe the fakes aren't all fake?
