I bought this used racquet from Jzone Badminton shop in Markham, Toronto, Canada. According to the guy at the shop, the racquet was originally bought somewhere in Asia (maybe SP), and then shipped here to Canada.So it is SP coded and had Sunrise sticker, and it took me hours to peel off the Sunrise sticker to get the cone code. Sunrise Sticker number is: S4381498. The racquet is used but it is pretty much in mint condition. The seller told me that it is 100% original racquet and not fake. He also said that if I prove the racquet is fake he will return my money. The doubt that this racquet may not be genuine crept into my mind after coming back home and closely looking at the racquet and all the minute paint work and printing on the racquet. The paint work, and some of the text written on the shaft is a bit hazy (I'll post pictures in the comments), which is one would not expect from a "top-of-the-line" racquet from Yonex! Please help me identify if its real or fake!! Appreciated!!
As I said it comes with a Sunrise sticker, but I peeled it off to read the cone code. The Sunrise sticker seems legit, as it took me hours to peel off the sticker properly! but I'm not an expert to judge if the sticker was real or not.
