    Hi,

    Is this n90 real or fake? My friend bought many lining items from his uncle who is from china, and said that he is selling genuine lining product. He recommend me to buy n90 becoz his uncle is selling it really cheap. He showed me the picture of one of the n90 he purchased for his friend.

    Well I noticed 1 thing that this n90 is different than the others. Although it has 72 grommets, which is the same as genuine n90, but the grommet's colour is different. I looked at many pictures of n90s online and almost all n90's grommets colour are all black, unlike my friend's one, which has red, yellow and black. So is all n90s have black grommets? OR some of them have different colours? Do you guys think this one is genuine?

    Thank you

    And how do you know now that this is a genuine one?
    Did you ever have a genuine N90 in your hands? If yes, compare! There should be a noticable different balance point if its fake.

    hmm im not sure but i m just trusting my good friend coz he said his uncle sell genuine racket.. What i was concern is the colour of the grommets. I loooked at many pics of n90s online and most of the grommet's colour are black but recently i found some genuine n90 pic that the colour of the grommets are different now..

    I know. But that still means you're not 100% sure, you "just" trust him. Does it feel head heavy?
    It must be significantly head heavy and you shouldnt have the feeling that the racket is light.
    If you can confirm these two facts, there's a higher probability that you've got a genuine racket.
