    Default Are these Yonex over grips genuine items?

    Just would like to ask if these Yonex over grip wraps the genuine thing? They are found on the internet for US$7.50 for 10 with free shipping world wide. No other information is provided about them like the model and type of grip accept that the material is Polyurethane +Linen

    They are fake, take a look at the "O" on the Yonex tape it should look more like this "0" therefore I am pretty sure these are fake.

    Hey guys, thanks alot for your timely info. I thought it was too good to be true. But on further reading of posts even if genuine, not many in the forum seem to recommend Yonex grips anyway.

    Anyhow I thought of wrapping up those spare rackets that one does not use but loan out to visitors or guest so they don't feel left out.

    Also they don't com in these sort of rolls, the rolls are larger, more of a hole in the middle.

    Thanks guys for the timely info. I was about to order it. I guessed something was amis, but I could not tell. But it does not really matter, as after reading the rest of the posts in the grip forum, I noticed that no one is recommending the use of that brand of grip.

    Just thought of using it to wrap up old rackets that one will never use oneself. But to be kept as spares for visitors and guests (little ones and racket wrecking adults if you know what I mean) so they don't feel left out.

    i already try this grip( got it free), too slippery suitable for recreational type of playing.not for serius style of playing, i'm afraid your racket will fly side by side with the shuttle to next court ... but as your mentioned just to wrap up old racket to be used by little ones and racket wrecking adults(i used mine to grip spare racket for this group too ) its should be fine as you could change it as many as you like providing this the cheapest grip available in your area..

    Yonex grip, even if real, are really rather poor quality anyway.

    yesterday i borrowed a Yonex demo racket that was wrapped with Super Grap. it is horrible. soft, slippery, and moves around. i cannot imagine so many people still use SuperGrap.

    get some RKEP G09 grip. those are the best and cheapest. no need to worry about fake. you can find them in ebay.
