    Hi guys,

    Would just like to seek the opinions of the friendly people here whether this N90 III is genuine or fake. My friend bought the racket from China (i have no idea which part) and he is wondering if the racket is genuine or fake. Since the both of us could not differentiate whether it's genuine or fake, we hope to seek the 'gurus' here for advise.
    By the way, that is the cover that comes with the racket.

    Thanks all.

    price RMB 2180

    shaft code: 44039KEF 0479 ; on the otder side KST S2

    I can't say about the details but it strikes me as odd that the numbers on the shaft are not both from left to right (not both ending on the cone side) but maybe it is normal for Li-Ning?

    I've been looking at the racket for quite awhile... Seriously have no idea how to differentiate between a fake and genuine Li Ning. But I would really ne happy if someone can tell me which part of the racket I should take a pic to post..

    Not true. Only Li Ning rackets from Sunlight distributor dont have serial numbers on the shaft. Authentic Li Ning rackets bought from China directly will have the serial numbers on both side of the shaft above the cone.

    Been looking thru the forum and realized that it is really hard to differentiate between a genuine and fake Li Nings. Thanks to all that contributed their opinions really appreciate it.. Hoping to hear more opinions tho.. I can provide additional pictures if needed as well.

    All I noticed was the advertising paper says N90-II S-Type... not sure why but that doesnt really say anything - they probably used a different one

    Can you take the picture of the cross at 5 and 7 o'clock (left and right of the T joint area)?
    The real one should have a grommet right at the cross intersection, while the fake one is not exactly at the cross intersection.

    it's normal.

    are there spare grommets with the racket?

    overall looks alright, dont see anything wrong, grommets are fine.

    IMG_20140602_171304.jpg if you have the chance, compare the grommets here to a real one. if you still have doubts, bring it to a shop and compare side by side

    as a guide, the grommets of a real one will not 'extend out' so much
