    Serial #: 7889860
    Date Code: 050582SP
    Model: NANOSPEED 9900
    3U|19~24lbs
    G4|8.5~10.5kg

    The Hologram sticker is coming off and i only used this for around 10 times.

    This is the Serial and cone serial

    The side of the racket (This is to look at the Hologram sticker peeling off on the left side of the cone)

    My racket doesn't have the shiny orange?

    This had the tight Yonex seal on the handle. I don't know if this is a high imitation of the racket. In my opinion, i think this racket is real.

    The hologram sticker is coming off. Help? ):

    It was around 200 something + shipping. I don't remember the website, but it might be badminton alley. I gave them a call and they say they don't sell SP racquets. I've bought from them before, they also sold arc sabers to me.

    It would not be from badminton alley because they US coded rackets.

    THIS RACQUET IS FAKE.
    THIS RACQUET WAS MADE IN THE 2009.
    VERIFIED DATE ON RACQUET: May 05, 2008
    Signs:

    Back of the Yonex hologram sticker, the printing was fading away.
    The orange on the bottom of the head isn't shiny orange
    Top part of the head, some of the shiny orange was misprinted and had a small section put to a random part of the head.
    Easy dents/scratches
    Easily peelable Hologram Yonex Sticker.
    Racquet is too light
    Stiffer than the Genuine NS9900
    Both sides of the top part of Shiny Orange isn't aligned



    Thanks to this forum for providing information on how to indentify fake racquets.

    Can you explain? Your reasoning does not make sense.

    Please take a clear photo of the butt cap.

    He means the 9900 wasn't released untill late 2008/early 2009. First production started in december 2008 (xx128xXX)
    Besides that cone and shaft serial number don't match up ...

    just to vouch for badmintonalley.com, they are a legit business and i have bought more than a few rackets from them and have picked them up in person since they're a few minutes from where i live.
