    Hello everyone,

    it is the first time that i'm creating a thread on badmintoncentral. I'm from France so excuse my english :crying:

    I'd like to identify if my lining racket is genuine. I bought it to someone today and he is gonna send me the bill on my mails this week. The online shop where he bought it is secured and i know that they don't sell fakes. But the question is, did he sell me the racket he bought from the website or something else... ? I am really stressed this is the first time i'm buying a second-hand racket. Here are the pictures i just took:

    Thank you very much ! I feel relieved ! :)
    Can you tell me what are the standards for an original lining racket ?
    I searched, but many answers were about Serial number but they don't have it anymore !
    They talked a lot about the font too for "S2" and "li-ning" and the last one was about the hexagon at the 6 o'clock position !
    I will try to make an official topic about real and fake li-ning whenever i get a new li-ing one day... Or someone should definitely do it :D
    I am finally going to try tomorrow ! Maybe i'll make some reviews :D

    the font S2 on the butt cap is a telltale sign, as is the hex decal at 6 o'clock of the frame. forget about those serial numbers, its useless. there should be some kind of date imprints on the wooden handle beneath the factory grip, if the wooden handle is bare, high chance its a fake.

    Yeah there were some red prints on the handle when i put a new grip on ! But there were chinese letters on it so i didn't really mind. So it is definitely a genuine one ? :p im gonna play with it in one hour, i'm so excited ! :d

    can someone confirm that this is an original lining racket ?
    It actually has the red prints on the handle (with chinese things on it and some numbers) and i already sent some photos

    It's not that I think. Your pictures are not so sharp.

    I have owned 2 N70-II and I can't tell from your photos if yours is real or not.

    i hesitated because i thought it would be stiffer ! but i would say that this is the same rigidity as the arcsaber z-slash from yonex, and usually, fake racket are flexibles. I compared and mine is a genuine one ! But not stiff enough. I'll try out an arcsaber 10 maybe

    The N70-II should be a little stiffer than the z-slash and more head-heavy too.
