    Exclamation New Fake Yonex Rackets Phenomenon

    It seems there is a new trend of fake racket especially Nano Speed 9900 and Arcsaber 10, Armortech 900 P
    with shaft serial 7XXXXXX and production 2009-2010 (cone code: DDMM9X / DDMM0X)
    7 out of 10 are Nanospeed 9900 so be careful about it

    So I would like to give warnings:

    - DO NOT buy a rackets from E-bay especially when they state they are from China (Beijing, Hongkong, Shanghai, etc)

    - DO NOT buy JP rackets unless you know that they are Yonex authorised dealer (6 out of 10 fakes that I found are JP codes)

    - DO NOT buy IF the price too good to be true
    yeah, Nanospeed 9900 for US $50? When you buy it, your dream to get cheap NS9900 will fly along with your money
    I saw many people ask about DHgate.com, and said, what about they are straight from factory? it is a bargain US $18 per Arcsaber Z-slash. NO it is NOT, they are FAKE. DO NOT buy from them


    This DOES NOT means high price will guarantee that the racket is genuine
    IF you cannot afford Yonex racket, it is better to buy another racket from different brand.


    - If you wants to buy it, from anyone, your friend, you coach, and especially E-bay (yes, I read a coach scam their student with fake Yonex rackets)
    Try to CONFIRM it first before you buy it:

    or if it is from E-bay:

    so there you go, another thread about how to avoid Yonex fake rackets

    few addition:
    - Regarding Grade A / B / C racket: No they are still FAKE
    even if the buyer said it close to real, DO NOT buy it
    they just want to give you false feeling of security
    it is FAKE so DO NOT let yourself in a risk if you already know it is fake

    - Again about "What happen if I cannot afford Yonex racket but still want one?"
    go for another brand such as Victor, Wilson, Panda Power, Carlton, Head, Apacs, etc
    Yonex charge a pretty high price for their product. mid range Yonex racket might be as expensive as high end from another brand

    PLEASE PAY ATTENTION:
    In this thread, I am only talking about Yonex rackets Made in JAPAN
    If you want to know about Yonex rackets made in Taiwan or China, this thread is not suitable for you

    =============================

    Regarding my original post about fake Yonex racket with shaft serial 7XXXXXX and 2010 / 2009
    You need to know there are two kind of number in Yonex rackets

    Shaft serial is one of a kind serial number for each yonex racket that made in Japan (Yonex made in Taiwan has different way to number their racket)
    That serial number shows you this is racket number XXX that yonex produce

    Cone code is the date when they make the racket (and for which area this racket for):
    It is based on DDMMYX(and 2 letter code area)
    D: day
    M: month
    Y: year

    For example:
    171202JP
    17 12 0 2 JP
    17th of December 2010 for Japan distribution
    There are many codes, JP for Japan, UK for United Kingdom, TH for thailand, CH for China, etc.

    =======

    To answer why 7XXXXXX production 2009 / 2010 is fake:

    for 2009 racket, most of them have shaft serial 8XXXXXX - 9XXXXXX
    for 2010 racket, most of them have shaft serial 9XXXXXX
    7XXXXXX is too low (shaft serial 7XXXXXX should be racket production 2007-2008)

    Some examples:

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex arcsaber 7
    shaft serial: 7670454
    cone code : 290692ch
    source : second hand but looks new hence my doubt
    price : 35
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    Too cheap, even for second hand

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Armotec 900 Power Lcw
    shaft serial: 7617676
    cone code : 291203JP
    source : Sport Shop Kl
    price : Rm670
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    Serial number is too low
    **See? expensive doesn't mean genuine

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex Nano 9900
    shaft serial: 7371680
    cone code : 081092JP
    source : sold by former coach
    price : US$ 150
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    DO NOT trust anyone



    racket model: Yonex Arcsaber 10
    shaft serial: 6769702
    cone code : 300808JP
    source :ebay auction
    It's even lower than 7.. it's 6!
    From E-bay (!!!)

    Racket model: Nanospeed 9900
    shaft serial: 7614001
    cone code : 171202JP
    source : bought via Internet from Shanghai.
    Another fake JP, from China
    JP code is japan distribution code, so why a shop in Shanghai has JP racket?
    I know people will say they import it, but there are only few shops that do this
    So, be careful and always stay alert

    Default arcsaber zslash

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex arcsaber z-slash
    shaft serial: 7625649
    cone code : 010602JP
    source : sport shop berlin
    price : Euro 64

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    Hello, I wanted to know if the arcsaber z slash i bought is original or fake. From your other source link it seems to be that i bought fake racket beacuse of low shaft serial number 7 w.r.t cone code 0(for 2010) Do please confirm this
    Regards

    Best is to buy from your trusted retail outlet. That you will be very sure that it is not fake.

    Sorry for being in wrong thread Infact i came to this thread from another thread in same forum and i posted in this thread. About selling imported rackets you are right i didnt notice this thing untill i came home and checked on internet. From finishing and other things (like engraved code) racket can't be identified as fake racket. For this reason i provided my racket's data.
    Regards

    it should be 9XXXXXX (around 99XXXXX)
    and around late feb 2011 they reach 9999999 and go back to 2XXXXXX

    Guys. Anyone can tell me which shop is reliable as in selling good original rackets in Kuala Lumpur. Based on what I'm reading so far, Yonex is a big gamble, so I stick to other brands like Apacs or Protech? Any advice... obviously the Taiwan version of Yonex is out of the question now.. I bought one but it seems good to me in terms of playability. Need some info here.. guys please advice.

    most likely not because the start with 23XXXXX so 24XXXXX looks good, but to make sure ask the other thread about your racket

    if you don't believe local seller, then online could be the solution
    http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/ or http://www.sohubuy.com/ or RKEP eric on ebay are legit seller

    Hi all,
    i went to some badminton shop lately (Aj puchong, and elin collection pandan indah) and i found out that most of the yonex racket had its hologram sticker on the cone code ~ it is trust-able to buy racket from them as the price is quite reasonable for voltric 80 ~ around RM550-560

    i believe aj and elin have good reputation since both are listed here and for the hologram sticker on cone code is a sunrise stiker... but imitation also have that.. AFIK aj & elin didn't sell fake .
