    i'm kind of new to yonex stuff so i can't tell if this is real or fake, my main concern is that the yonex hologram sticker is covering up part of the serial number.

    you need to let us know where you bought it.

    RM299.

    is that Malaysian currency (RM), or mainland China currency (RMB)?

    In Chinese Yuan (RMB) RM 299 = CND$42.00
    In Malaysian Ringgit (RM) RM 299 = CND$92.00

    Pretty low for a NS9000 in either case, don't you think.

    thanks for pointing that out. i thought RM299 is a bit more than that.

    then we can simply conclude from the price alone that it is a fake.

    Yonex hologram should be on the other side of the cone (side with grip/weight) instead of the serial side. Fake.

    it's from Sin Ya Book Agencies No.66 & 68 Ground Floor Jalan Sultan 50000 KL
    it was quite a big store and they were going out of business in the badminton section, can anyone tell me if there's any other reason that it's fake other than the sticker price?

    Can we perhaps see the full CH code. The hologram sticker placement is awfully odd.

    i dont see any reputable rackets seller at Sultan Road, from McD till end. one road just after Sultan Road is the famous Petaling Street that one can find all kind of fake goodies.......;)
    pls do post. the digit on cone shall be white.
    at RM299, is a ridiculous price, unless strike lottery.....;)

    Just wondering, does it say "CH" on the shaft beside the Nanospeed 9000 X? Because If it's a CH coded NS9K, then the shaft will also be CH-coded..

    But it's funny how they sell CH racquets in Malaysia.. They're normally SP-coded.
