    HI to all

    I've got a question on my Yonex NS9000 Type X, I bought it from a friend in HK last week, I pay $1200hkd without string, I notice something when I got the racket, there have a 'SUNRISE' decal cover the serial code on the cone, I'm wondering is that the Yonex do for all new model(cover the serial code and don't let ppl to see it lol)?? The code on the shaft is 6021273
    here are the pics:

    Please tell me does my NS900 fake or not!:confused:

    by the way here is a little review

    I feel this racket is very light(3U) compare to my Ti-10 2U, it got great control when drivering at the back(I string BG85 25lbs cross 24lbs main) and it got a lot of power too although the Ti-10 done better job in smashs, but the smashs don't mean everything, it just a part of offensive technic, you can't smashs all the time specially against with the higher lever players, I heard a pro siad ''When you smash the shuttle faster then it will come back back quicker'' Anyway that's just my persional thinking maybe I'm wrong:p


    Thanks a lot

    That brand call KIMONY, they're pretty famous in Japan and China, I love them so much coz 1) They are quite cheap 2)Very grippy even played for ages 3)Colourful

    This is the one I'm using: http://www.bbesports.com/shop/newimages/grip_kimony_KGT109.jpg

    Model:KGT-109

    You can find some from BBS Sports

    yup, it looks good from here. if you really wanna be sure, you can always rip the sunrise sticker off, record the serial number on the shaft and cone, and send it off to yonex to verify. but i wouldn't bother if i were you ... enjoy!

    SP rackets are meant to have the PSBI logo on them.

    Some of the rackets don't have PBSI logos on them, not to worry.
    -------------------------------------------

    lavacore, do you even know what a genuine racket looks like. To me, what you are explaining above is that you do not know even thou it is very simple to tell simply by looking at your own racket.
