    I bought this off a friend, i am a newb at badminton, anyhow i dont know how to read the seral number so ill just give you all the numbers on it, on the racket where it goes into the handle 2125157, then the number that is on the handle, it might be cut off, cuz theres grip tape over it, 265958c, on the side there is just a yonex sign over a logol of CH in a circle with golden strieks over it, i read somewhere its suppose to have a PBSI thing on it, but it dont, i want to ask if this is the tawaianese fake or the china fake? it seems pretty good, i gave him a price of 50 bucks? good deal? it seems really light and there is bg 65 (purple) or bg 55 string on it, i couldnt read it correctly, thanks big time

    $50 for an AT700 and you're asking if it's a fake? :D

    The serial # combos are totally wrong, and clearly it's a fake. Can't determine where the location for the fake manufacture though, doubt anyone can identify that by the racket itself.

    If you are offering a deal too good to be true ($50 for somethig suppose to be at least tripled the price), don't think you hit the jackpot. 99.99999% you simply wasting your $$$. :eek:
