    unfortunately, the serial number seems too low for the zslash but someone else can probably confirm. I'd suggest that you contact yonex japan to get official confirmation then start a paypal dispute.

    Why contact Yonex Japan, when Yonex Australia is closer

    .
    Yes. Why contact Yonex Japan, when Yonex Australia is closer to the Australian BCer.

    Probably from eBay so wouldn't belong there anyway, not to mention they are both fake [​IMG].

    agreed they are both fake but if he's actually bought them then it does belong there (I thought as long as you own it you could post there). thought the ebay thread is for shopping inquiries.

    Why even bother to ask ...

    :D item location: Toronto ; shipping time: 9-15 business days ...

    That last part is not entirely true but I'm not going to go into detail about it in public since it's easy to adjust for fake sellers ...

    Even though its fake, I have some money to use. and will it be a good bakcup racket? Are the fakes still durable/ up to par w/ the real yonex ones? Im planning to string it not too high maybe about 23-24 lbs.

    yeah I know what you mean, that's why I put oval


    for durability at 23-24lbs? yes they can take it

    but DO NOT think that it would play like a real Yonex
    I read it in BC someone post about fake racket, bad grommets, bad handle, etc
    I would not want that as my back up racket

    We hear so much about the equipment/rackets used

    .
    It's strange isn't it? :confused::confused::confused: Some are happy with a fake racket, some are not.

    Seriously speaking, our Badminton is an activity; but we hear so much about the equipment/rackets used.
