    Actually, I've already bought this Racket (Yonex Armortec 700 - GR Version) for 80euro in ebay. The seller provides me an option to give it back without reason (within 14 days), and he also guarantee that the Racket is genuine. Nevertheless , I also want you guys to check it for me so that in case it is fake I can send it back, on my opinion it is real.

    Here is the pics :

    Thanks so much ! But I'd love to see another confirmation before I unpack and string the racket ;) I'm a poor student who want to be so sure that he didn't pay 80euro for a fake :)

    Honestly, black string and no logo on the strings does not mean its counterfeit. I never have the logo on my racket strings and i string my rackets with a variety of colours as well. Oh yea, almost certain this is counterfeit. Just looking at the auction, its pretty obvious its counterfeit.

    Weeds - That seller is one of the first fake sellers on Ebay, and probably the most prolific.

    Yep, you're right. Look at the Yonex logo on the handle. It's so fake!

    you don't even have to look at the racket...JP coded with a normal banana shaped racket bag is even more obvious :p

    please explain me... someone comes to ebay with one original racquet, and tons of fakes. He shows to all the pictures of original, but sells a fake.
    Where is a problem? :((

    One thing here is to CYB (cover your behind) or CYA (I think you get the idea) before purchasing from Ebay for anything.

    The problem, if he's showing the same racket pictures over and over it's already a red flag.

    1) Ask all the right questions.
    2) Ask for all the right photos.
    3) Check the serials.
    4) Make sure you know what to look for and what to ask.

    Dassad - 1st thing for you to do is read through this thread so you can learn what 1) and 2) are.

    jcl49 - I read your post in the other thread. Search the forums and you'll find your seller's id has popped up before as a seller of genuine goods.
