    Can you post a picture? It is not likely that people would make a Fake of a yonex, shape is to complicated and is not that commercial as Babs, well a least where i live.

    well i do not know what does that SP means, but it looks real, take a look just at the top of the handle in the opposite side of the tension recommendations there should be two numbers, one above the other, the number from below should end with the international code of the country of the original destination of the racket, BTW where did you buy it?

    The rare thing is the tension information, the SP thing doesnt worry me that much because i have seen other rds with different information on the frame.

    Here you go, check for the conuntry number and the serial number, something like this:

    So , did you find out if it is a fake?, please let me know how it went. Also i dont think is easy to make fakes of Japan made rackets, it is easier for the others because they are made in China.
