Hi,i know it sounds weird for me to open this thread,since i used to always be the one who helps people to identifying fake or real rackets.Since i am the middle man in this transaction,i try to be neutral in this thread. So,please give your opinion and reasons for saying whether this racket is real or not. Your reply will be much appreciated! The buyer thinks that the serial number does not sync. This one's serial number is shaft code 3698066 and cone code 190822SP . compare to this one.Serial number is 3810861 and cone code 090522SP, Both of this MP99 is manufactured on 2002,but Buyer thinks that if 9th of may 2002 shaft code is already 38xxxxx,then the 19th august 2002 manufactured should be bigger than 38xxxxx already,shouldn't be in a smaller digit. I do agree with the buyer,but according to my experience,there are few times i've seen out of ordinary produced genuine yonex rackets.I think there is also possibility that this is one of it. Let me upload some other parts for you guys to judge. Another thing that is a problem to the buyer,is the butt cap.The JAPAN on butt cap shows a blurry J and N. Once again,your opinion and reasons are urgently needed,and we would appreciate it very much. Thanks!
