Badminton Bay has been in the business for 9 years now and despite being an authorised dealer for all our products, we’re still getting questions from clients if the Yonex rackets we sell are authentic. Malaysians would ask ‘Ori ker?’, which means is it original?
International brands such as Yonex are commonly known to have many counterfeit rackets produced to confuse their customers. They may look exactly the same in cosmetics and model names and worst of all, they are carrying Yonex brand. Customers should be educated and be aware on how to differentiate a real Yonex racket from a fake one.
Before you think you have bought a genuine Yonex racket, here are some basic guideline to check.
Every Yonex racket has a hologram sticker that is hard to be removed and would not easily peel off.
You can also come to our retail store at our address at bottom of this page, we’ll get it checked for you using this special tool. Just remember to make sure the hologram sticker is still on racket.
Yonex logo on racket’s support cap is one the easiest thing to spot a fake racket. Notice on the distinct, well-defined and clean logo on an authentic racket compared to a fake. The ‘O’ in YONEX on counterfeit racquets is often wide and round, with a larger space inside the letter.
Every Yonex racket comes with a unique serial number. This serial number is not only painted/printed on the racket shaft, but it it is laser-engraved.
The color of the racket’s bottom cap must be of this green shade. It should not be in another shade or color. Again, notice the inconsistent and poorly defined logo on the fake racket’s bottom cap.
