    Pricing can tell

    Look at the price. It is definitely not right. Wouldn't that tell you it is a fake? Someone in my club bought an MP99 last year or so at eBay. He didn't check and thought he had a super deal. Bought a fake of course.

    Yeah I wasn't gonna buy it and the price is way too good to be true. I just wanted to tell everyone else about it. when i say by i mean i went past it.
    I don't think the colour seems right at all!

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex ARMORTEC 900 TECHNIQUE
    shaft serial: 66316XX
    cone code : 190172AS
    source : dunedune123
    price : £11.00
    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----

    I am a newbee and this is a pre purchase enquiry, hope you can help as I'd like to know before I purchase rather than afterwards?

    Thanks in advance,
    G

    The price is too good to be true, so very likely it is counterfeit.

    real or fake?

    ---->8---- cut here (include this line) ---->8----
    racket model: Yonex nanospeed 9000

    shaft serial: 62122xx
    cone code : 080662us
    source : e-bay seller dunedune123
    price : $105 (£52)

    not paid for it yet but suspicious about the two x's given on shaft serial, seller claims 'racket was made in Japan on 08th June 2006 (batch 2)' but i see above someone else is suspicious of e-bayer dunedune, have asked for confirmation of full serial number but not recieved reply, obviously not paying till i get it but have a bad feeling about this one

    Well, just for putting 2 XX's is a yellow flag already . Also, once again the price is questionable since it is too low.

    So which racket code is this suppose to be? Looks genuine but having a Nano Speed there is raising up some questions!

    it's counterfeit! if you look at the second link, look at the picture of the top of the frame. the word "technique" is not showing at all.

    guys, if you are new to buying rackets online, you gotta understand people are selling rackets for money, they are not doing it for charity. They need to somehow make some money from selling or they won't survive. If you think a top of line Yonex racket for less than $50 is a real deal, please come back to reality from daydreaming.

    Good deal is not on your side; it's in their hands.
