    Hi Sudirman,
    Dont' think they are genuine, as reported from one of the buyer in the comment area.
    £60 for 9000X, can't get this price from anywhere in the world. Too good can't be true ;-)

    Look its no good just listing it here and babbling on about it. Proactively REPORT it to eBay too! They are morons agreed, but sometimes they do remove listings that are counterfeit goods.

    I cannot fathom that this kind of shoddy practice still happens in England with all our laws in place.

    Its unacceptable. I hope this person gets prosecuted.

    I've just had my fingers burnt on a eBay auction for a nanospeed 9000 which promptly snapped after 2 weeks of play - I'm positive it's fake ! Serial number 6677876, Date code 206828JP (which I don't think translates into a proper manufacture date anyway).

    I've reported the seller to eBay, so hopefully they'll be able to take them off-line

    Have to admit to being a little intrigued with all the discussion on fakes rackets and how they perform. The answers are all subjective obviously as it does all boil down to individual feel and choice.

    Have decided to test one of these (obviously) fake rackets out, for purely research purposes of course.

    Should be intereting to see how these match up...................................

    may i ask what's the logic between these numbers? I know the second one with the country code tells DDMMYP, but how is this related to the first serial number?
