    i went on ebay like 2 weeks ago to look for a new badminton racket and i saw a yonex nanospeed8000 for 0.01$, anyways i bid on it and it came to a total of 55.50$. i looked at this persons reviews, i think he had like 60 reviews or so, but there were 3 of them that said that they received fake badminton racket. but my question is that i'm wondering if i should have bought it for such a low price of CA55.50$. and also if there was a way that i could tell if it was fake or not. if anyone could answer me on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    Kevin

    Don't waste your money

    I don't think you should waste $55CAD on a fake racquet.
    For $80 CAD, you could get a MP 22 or MP 23.

    Think about it in the other way. Think "value".

    The regular cost of a fake racket is no more than 30 CAD. But in your case, the racket is 55 CAD.

    Why should you pay that extra 25 CAD? It ain't worth it.
