    Hi,

    I am wondering what does it mean by grade A racket and what's it different from genuine racket?

    I was trying to buy the racket from a ebay seller and he uses this 2 term to describe different class of racket.

    Thank you for any advice.

    Ebay sellers who sake fake rackets pretend to Grade rackets to say they are "high quality" racket, but not the real thing.

    I would suggest it doesn't mean anything, since there is no way of knowing whether what they say is true or not.

    there is demo racket actually (what I know is there are some Yonex demo rackets)


    and grade A racket?
    sound like imitation for me
    what they say is, this is imitation with grade A (almost like the real thing)
    but still, it is FAKE

    real Yonex demos are as good as the production ones.

    grade A is a gimmick term. they are fake rackets and used by fake seller to give you a false sense of security.

    the FAKE RACKET sellers usually using a grades term when dealing with buyers. They would not dares to say it is genuine one because that was totally FAKE. my friend bought an GRADE A ARMORTEC 900PLC and the code is 980658CH. is it genuine? :p

    I think the last number is the year - 8=2008. PLC wasnt made in 2008, so fake if I am correct.

    But those 98 days it starts of with aren't suspicious at all :D;). One earth day ~= 3 Jupiter days , etc. etc.

    And the 5th digit = year

    1 month in Jupiter = 100 days (that's why you see day 98)
    1 year = 100 months (I also see month 88 in some racket)
    now it's year 205 in Jupiter
    CH is for Challisto area..

    lol.. :p
