Following our blog published recently on ways to check the authenticity of Yonex rackets, we’ve had people coming to our shop to check on their Yonex rackets 😉
And it’s interesting because people start to be aware of their role to ensure that they buy the genuine product at a genuine price. Just yesterday, we had a client who brought in his racket for stringing and that it is a fake one.
Here’s a real case of what a fake racket looks like compared to a genuine racket. Enjoy the post!
1. Hologram Sticker
We can easily spot this when compared apple to apple because original hologram tends to be more “mysterious” with its content are quite hidden and darker in color. Fake hologram is seen to be more shiny and visible.
2) Unique Serial Number
With technology in place, serial numbers on fake rackets can be made so similarly because it is also being engraved on both shaft and support cap, so we can’t find any clear difference. Guess they have invested some money on this to close the difference gap.
3) Bottom Cap’s Color
Mild difference between the 2 green shades but the font used in ‘JAPAN’ clearly shows the difference.
In a nutshell
Counterfeit items are unauthorized replicas of the original and are being treated and sometimes sold at the original item’s price. This is not acceptable as the fakes are taking advantage of the value of something worth more.
Because of this we support Yonex and all other original brand manufacturers as we are authorized dealer for Yonex, Abroz, Victor, Apacs, Fleet, Flex Power, Molten, Butterfly and we sell 100% genuine products.
