    Nowadays, there are so many fake racquets out there in the market. The risk of getting one from online stores or even friends are greater. I wonder if it makes sense to start a new forum for members to contribute tips that help to differentiate fake from genuine racquets.
    If starting a new forum is out of touch, I find it helpful to have a dedicated area where I can find the tips. I just like to know what you guys think ?

    Its hard to differenciate fakes nowadays. Maybe you can search for Fakes rackets thread in this forum.

    I hoped that your friends wouldn't try and sell you a fake racquet as the real McCoy (they wouldn't be your friends...) :D

    Buy non-Yonex (no fakes there) :D :D :D

    right now, fake rackets on its own doesn't generate enough traffic for a new forum..

    if however, someone volunteers to write an article on fake rackets, and promise to update it regularly, that will be very excellent... *hint* *hint*... :)

    I think this is a very good idea . i always wanted to have a thread that can be used on 4 a long time... yonex won't stop making raquets unless WWIII appears or something...:D





    O ya. and besides that, getting tips for fake raquets, i think, is useful too!

    Post a sticky thread with bluejeff's website as the start should be good enough as for now. ;)

    what we really need is a "sticky" thread where people can ask for recommendations of racquets.

    Sorry, I was in a family trip last week, so I didn't see this thread till today.:eek:

    Cool, I will be honored to do so :)

    However, this is so far I have, as an example:
    http://free.hostdepartment.com/b/bluejeff/index.html , or
    http://free.hostdepartment.com/b/bluejeff/

    (as well as in the http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=15203&highlight=spot+fake)

    If there is a sticky thread on identifying fakes, I think I will update details on it pretty frequently. (Please let me know how I should do it; or I can just simply write a new thread, and ask Kwun to make it sticky. Let me know:))

    Jeff,

    I think you should be on the Yonex payroll :)

    You are doing a great service to rid the world of fakes by giving everyone the information to spot the fakes.

    (Only acceptable instance is if the seller honesty explains it is a fake and the buyer chooses it any way, that is a different story).

    Anyway, caveat emptor (buyer beware).
