Do you guys think this is genuine?
Anyone know if this ebayer is legit?
Fake stuff ....
thinking of buying from this guy
it is a FAKE racket..
its fake how? im going to the guys house to take a look at it but can you explain how it's fake?
first of all, there is no PBSI logo
second, the bag looks cheap
third, even though it is SP coded, there is no SP print on the shaft
lastly and the most fundamental one:
the cone code makes no sense
cone code is the date that racket being produced
it is DD MM Y X CC
Y: year (yes only 1 number)
X: batch or revision number
CC: 2 area code
so, let's break down that racket cone code:
18 69 5 9 SP
so, this racket is produced day 18, month 69, 2005 for SP distribution
yup, there is no such thing as month 69.. it makes no sense, so we know it is a fake racket
Is this genuine or not?
Thank You Very Much Avenger ^^
this one should be fine
the cone code and shaft serials is as expected, and the sources of the racket (central sports) is yonex authorised dealer
btw, the racket has some marks, which could be from clashes, so buy it at your own risk (actually, add 35 pounds and you can buy a new one + goodies)
Are these two real? Thanks
the first one should be fine, stadium sports is yonex authorised dealer
for the second one, I cannot say for certain, but if I recall it from my memory, they also should be fine
Thank you very much for your swift reply!
Saw this on ebay and was wondering if it's too good to be true..
Any feedback on this would be appreciated
well, it is from China, I wouldn't be surprised if it's a fake racket
the price also too good to be true
so yeah, stay away from it
that's what i'm thinking, but you couldn't get away with selling that much stuff and have a 100% rating if they were all fake?
ebay 100% rating means nothing
I saw an obvious fake seller that have 100% buyer feedback. most people don't know that they are buying fake racket. they are too ignorant since thinking it is a good bargain
also, buyer feedback can be manipulated, using bot, they could create hundreds or even thousands new account and used it to rate their seller account
Wow...thanks for the insight Avenger. I'm kinda glad I enquired here first. I had a look on Mybadmintonshop and they quoted a price of $220AUD for the N90II..that was where I started to get doubts.
believe it or not, if it's from China, it would be even more expensive
because in China, their pricing policy: expensive = better quality
heck, I saw a report from Mintel (as marketing student) that they increase price of beer by 400% in 1 year and people still buy it
or how zara in China cost you £119 while in UK cost you £109, in Italy cost you £88 (based on same product)
so yeah, stay away if the price is too good to be true
