But the string is Yonex Bg 80. Probably because the supplier changed the string from Bg 60 to Bg 80. What else should I look at to verify if the racket is authentic or fake?
    Thanks!
    No Yonex painted logo on the strings is not an indicator as to whether a racket is genuine or fake. This is a common misconception held by a surprisingly large number of people.

    This is expecially true in your case as you have had the strings changed.

    look at the cone code.
    first 2 digits mean date of prod.
    next 2 digits mean month of prod.
    next 1 digit means year of prod ( 200* )
    the last digit i am not really sure.

    but the code above should be logical.
    eg. 210183SP
    means the racket is produced at 21 jan 2008.

    fake rackets usually have fake cone code.
    eg. 863171SP
    means the racket produced at date 86, month 31, year 2007
    which is illogical.

    and i don't see how this comment has anything to help someone choose between a 900P or 900T. anyways, in my opinion, the 900T is a good balance between offence and defence. its a good, fast racket for doubles

    aye, but still, check on the yonex serial number verification thread. it is possible for a code to be correct, so don't be duped that way. i am sure some manufacturers know how to copy the serial codes, and are doing so. like phandrew said, combination of paint job and serial code.

    imo, the technique outclasses the power, on that fact that its a faster racket, and power differences arent really enough for some people to warrant buying the power. f course, its an opinion. don't hate.
