Hi, I just came back from German Open. I just want to share something that might be interesting for you. I bought the new NS9900 there. But the number on the cap is weird. No. on the cap : 251282PL No. on the shaft : 8165911 The no. on the shaft doesn´t bother me that much. But no. on the cap should indicate the manufacturing date of the racquet. But doesn´t that mean the racquet was manufactured on last Christmas?!! I thought the racquet is made for this year. But since I bought it from Yonex German Open, I don´t think it is fake, or am I wrong? Another thing I bought from German Open is Yonex Aeroclub 03, new shuttlecock from Yonex. From this Aeroclub series, there are Aeroclub 03, 05 and 07. I suppose Yonex Aeroclub 07 has the best quality but I cannot confirm it since there was only Aeroclub 03 available. I bought it for €13. I wish I can put some pictures, but it too complicated, since I need to upload it first.
