    Hi thinking of buying this bag. Anyone recognise it / which one it is? I'm half-guessing it's fake Yonex but would appreciate any learned opinions. Thanks!

    Cheers - do you mind giving your reasons for thinking it's a fake?

    actually, you can request to see the bag before buying it.
    My advice would be that you buy a yonex bag from a yonex shop itself. =)

    Thanks. Yonex of not, if it looks like it'll do the job, why not eh, especially at that price. Slightly off topic, but any idea how much a similar-looking authentic Yonex bag would cost from a 'proper' shop? (just tell me how much and what currency and I'll convert currencies for my own posterity!)

    have not seen this bag in the yonex range before. believe you can get the same bag in china for ~NZ$10 :)

    can you tell what's genuine and what's fake? http://list.taobao.com/browse/50010...---40-grid-commend-0-all-50023629.htm?ssid=r6

    it would be safer if you could purchase your bag from a reputable shop.

    Thanks all for the feedback. Having thought about it, and the dearth of bags to be found locally, I'll probably get one from this guy once I've actually seen one. It's just a bag after all, as long as it isn't hiding a snake and the bottom doesn't fall out when I put my hand in it, I'll get it.

    Yeah, I was thinking of buying the same bag too. I guess it's fake because he doesn't know what model it is. New Zealand is such a crap place to buy any badminton gear. I might buy a Head squash bag instead, just to fit my 4 rackets in there.

    Exactly. Bit off topic but do you play in Christchurch?
