    This one is a fake racket..
    you know it based on the price

    based on the shaft serials and cone code
    the shaft serials is too low for the cone code (2008 production)

    you need to be careful buying a racket from ebay especially if they said they are from China and the price is too good to be true

    Edit: also based on the picture, they put "SG" mark which is only for JP code (SG mark is sign of quality product in Japan)

    It is fake :
    1.The symbol beside the U & G spec is strictly for JP code racket. CH code racket won't have it.
    2. CH wording on shaft looks fishy
    3. The YY plastic wrap on grip looks cheap

    Be alert when buying badminton racket on Ebay..

    I don't think you can buy a cheap Yonex
    if it's cheap, usually it is fake
    if you cannot afford Yonex, go for Victor or buy second hand racket
