    a clone only means they look similar. the internal construction are different as they are made by different companies using different materials.

    The ashaway racket is NOT a clone of yonex nanospeed 9000 although they look similar they play differently.

    because there are people who wants Yonex but they don't want to pay Yonex price, so they think they can buy a Yonex equivalent for less $.

    shady business tactics. but it works and it brings in money.

    but in reality, we know that something that looks like a Yonex model doesn't play like it.

    If they look similar than it is a clone racket. A clone racket apparence may just look similar to the Yonex but of course it use a different material. Apacs, Fleet Flex power and many more make a clone racket of Yonex

    can someone compare the two then, how they are different? i already know from what mentioned in this thread that the only similarity of these rackets is their looks. i've never owned an ashaway (but hopefully someday) so any info would be much appreciated!!!
