    Since alot of people sell fake yonex rackets online.
    I decided to look around online for a non-yonex racket. I am kinda interested in the Kason Tsf series. I have seen these rackets costing above $100. Should I be worried about fakes? has anyone seen a fake kason before? how rare is it? what types of physical hints should I be looking out for?

    Any info would help. Thanks

    In theory, there could be fakes for any products, any brands. In reality, since Yonex is the leading horse in badminton market, the chance you hit a fake Yonex (especially high end) should be much higher than others. If you suspect a deal is "too good to be true", then don't bid it.

    The safe approach is to purchase from reputable retailers. Yeah, the price might be a little bit higher, but you are paying for better services and no hassel. ;)

    just purchased this one... i did my research ... found out he got it from user kason_racquets

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-KASON-TSF-EC200-racquet-RRP-120_W0QQitemZ7234051965QQcategoryZ106463QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    this guy seems legit ... hopefully i didnt get one of thoes "too good to be true, deals"

    the only thing i notice thats kinda iffy is the kason mesh sign... it has two white dots which doesnt match the other site... hopefully its just nothing...
