    Very carefully

    Fakes always have signs; they can't be the same.

    mine has a laser engraving on it (the serial numbers). is it a competent proof? is it really possible to buy an authentic racket at a low price? 'coz mine was "said to be" an overrrun which explains the low price. any comments?

    low price usually means bad news.

    I have a NS9000X waiting to be strung for someone which I suspect is a fake

    racket model: Yonex NS 9000 X
    shaft serial: 5333446
    cone code : 250768JP

    JP also on the shaft, and a PBSI logo on the cone
    The TYPE X on the shaft isn't straight, it's at an angle
    dodgy looking YY on the butt

    Yeah it's counterfeit. What about GUMMETAL?

    i think the fake makers pretty well understood the cone code. Now there are closing in on the shaft serial.

    I don't quite agree. You see 08 and 09 year codes here and there! hehehe! Not to mention the actual look of the racket is off.

    Doubt that they would spend time and effort to do all this. Even like counterfeit DVDs, there are no where close to the genuine item.

    Matt,
    How can you find out so quickly? You sound quite confident, too. I know that the cone code must reflect a valid date and the country code (from Kwun's article). But it looks fine in this example. Are there other guidelines for checking the authenticity of Yonex rackets?

    It's fairly simple actually - just requires observation.

    For instance, for getting an idea on the serials, look at the serial thread and look at genuine ones compared to the counterfeits ones. Any relation? Once you have seen enough, you can tell which ones are off. In the case of the two rackets mentioned above in the thread, those ones are way off that it does not need to thinking.

    There are some counterfeits which are close which may require some looking up. To be on the safe side, this would require other members who are more experienced or using Leehsim to verify them.

    I am a more of a visual person and can tell very easily determine if a racket is genuine or a counterfeit, provided that the key pictures with the features which I am interested in observing are present. I do not require to own that particular racket in question to find out. This is because genuine rackets would have features/characteristics which apply to all of them.

    Or if you want to be careless, just use osmosis. Just make sure to have plenty of time on your hands.
