    The Badminton String sub-forum has a thread on a similar issue.
    See here

    Are andrew_chan and YinLoung are complaining about the same establishment?

    Give the people at the store directions to 'Badminton Central'.
    That should enlighten them considerably

    Yeah, that too. I mean, she's gotta give in some how. Maybe you a few friends should come in the store and talk.

    You should ask her how she knows CD coded rackets are real and aren't fake. If she believes CD is the only coded series to be real and all others are fake then tell her that yonex makes fake rackets.

    So I'm going to need ur help on explaining to them, so I need some facts and ideas how I can say this in a diplomatic way, not just "ur wrong, SP rackets arent fake, theyre real"


    They know it's not fake, it's called Liability issues. Because if they break your racket, they'll have to compensate for it, if it's the real thing and they're licensed stringers. However, by claiming your racket is fake they don't have to compensate for anything.

    They know it's real, how can they not? It's made in freaking Japan. They're just bad people that's all. Not quite evil, but greedy.

    They obviously don't want to be enlightened, you know what they say ignorance is bliss

    i had a similar issue that happened to me but it was involved with a lady at a club i was playing at. she told me well more like somewhat yelling that my JP racquets (bought them from shuttle-house and everyone knows they are legit) were fake because i pretty much paid half the price for my racquets compared to canadian racquets. i decided not let her get the best of me and asked her "so your saying my JP version racquets are fake and yours are real but all yonex racquets are made in japan and you are also saying that all other countries that sell yonex racquets are fake and should buy from canada? at first in my mind she would say no and apologize but execpt she said yes and kept saying my racquets are fake and told anyone other people their racquets were fake and there racquets from HK, GR, DEN, FRA, IP, KOR pretty much all over the world.
