    Does anyone know a sportshop here in Pune, India or in Bangalore where I can get original Yonex rackets but with cheaper price? Yonex shop in Manila sell these rackets for high costs.

    Hello Avenger,

    prices are in Indian Rupee. Glad I wasn't persuaded easily last night when I went to that shop and offered these rackets with cheaper prices. All these rackets seem original from the outside with matching hologram and serial codes.

    Yonex charge a pretty high price for the rackets, so it is not a big surprise
    believe me, cheap yonex most likely a fake racket
    if you cannot afford one, try another brand, apacs, victor, carlton, etc

    actually this place is not for buying enquiries :)
    when you want to check if the racket real or not BEFORE you buy it go to this thread:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...Enquiries-(no-ebay-s-or-online-auction)/page7

    the shaft serial and the cone code is makes no sense and obviously fake

    shaft serial would be 7 digit number
    cone code would be 6 digit number and 2 letter code area

    cone code would be the date this racket produced, the format would be
    DDMMYX (2 letter code area)
    D: day
    M: month
    Y: year

    for example:
    this racket is produced, 15 of January 2010 for singapore distribution

    the one that you mention:
    shaft serial should not have any letters in it
    cone code should have 2 letters at the end
    and the cone code is makes no sense if you know the format

    The number with the "S" is likely the number on the Sunrise hologram sticker which is probably covering the cone code. And what is put as cone code would actually be the shaft serial ;). It is strange though that the Z-Slash is so much cheaper than the other two(?) ...

    All of the above should be fine based on their numbers [​IMG].

    racket model: Yonex ArcSaber 8DX
    shaft serial: 9032827
    cone code : 150102SP
    source : Rose Sports Goods & Sports Clothing
    Address: G/F, 39 Fa Yuen Street, Mongkok KLN, Hong Kong
    Phone#: 2781- 1809
    price : US$167

    Hi demolidor, I got the weight measurement of the 8DX, which is 92g with Yonex NBG-95 string on it.

    It's a 3U instead of 2U.

    I noticed many Yonex rackets, the specification is printed on a label and tape on the cone. But, my 8DX it's engraved on the cone instead of printing on a label. Does it sounds normal?

    Many thanks!

    Okay, that is a normal weight with strings. I think mine was 92-93gr. with BG66Maxima ... (also 3U)
    Engraved specification was introduced in (late) 2008 for at least the Made in Japan models. Think it was first used on the NanoSpeed 9900 (but would have to look up if there were earlier ones) ...

    Please note that these rackets were given to me by a friend. Also, he informed me that they are player racquets, so he did not want to reveal to me his source. I can only confirm that since he lives in KL, that would be also the same place he got them. Both racquets had sealed plastic wrapping on handles when I received them, thus, I assume they are new.

    I can't imagine any pro player using NS4500 but aside from that as far as legitimacy is concerned based on the numbers they should both be fine [​IMG].

    Based on the numbers looking just fine [​IMG]. I guess you found more models than on the website ;).
