    Default Yonex: Made In JAPAN!

    Is Yonex allowed to advertise on their rackets that all of them are made in Japan! What do they technically mean by MADE in JAPAN! Can the word “Made” be Interchangeably used for DESIGNED! I am sure that the R&D is Located in JAPAN but then The rackets as we know are made in China Or Taiwan! Sometimes it is Outsourced also! So how can Yonex claim that all Their rackets are MADE in JAPAN! I think it is a false claim That Yonex seems to Make about their rackets!

    I am sure they have a Product and Process patent! But that does not mean That they can clearly write that all their rackets are made in Japan! Think of the clothing Industry! Most of the Top brands are Outsourced to countries like India, Thailand, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka! But all the manufactures clearly say that It is made in That specific country! Similarly in shoes too! So how can Yonex go about claiming that all their rackets are made in Japan!

    I would like everybody’s views on it! Thanks fella’s! I think technically every Yonex racket owner can sue the company!

    Well only there top of the line rackets say that.I think they make it in japan and ship it out to like asia,tiawan,etc... but then the JP versions are designed even better for the players in japan.

    when they say "made in japan" it could technically be the shaft which is made in japan rather than the whole racquet. if this view is right, than there is probably no misrepresentation on the part of yonex.

    I think what it means is that the materials used for the rackets are made in Japan. Not necessary the assembling process. Maybe Yonex is trying to play on words here and manipulated people.

    The serial number on the shaft tells where it's made. From what I know, all the yonex racquets have MADE IN JAPAN on them.

    When a product says made in Japan, it means it is made in Japan, ie. assembled, not neccesarily the material though. I have several Yonex raquets, most cheaper models, but only the mp100 I just got the other day says made in Japan.

    I'm sure that if their claim is false, they'd already been sued by their competition.
