    Hi everyone.

    I've bought 2 Yonex NS9000X Rackets for Rs.6500/=(US$65) from Sri Lanka (imported from malaysia). They have to be fake but with all logos printed correctly.(PBSI, Sunrise) The paint job seems to be almost perfect.

    The Racket is

    Very light in weight(cmp. to mp-66)
    Shaft is Flexible as the mp-66 (maybe because of its long shaft)
    I've been using it for 6 months now
    Stringed at 24lbs (Original NS9000X can hold 18-24Lbs)
    Produces great power for smashes, control for drives
    I've been using a Gosen Aermet 5300(with kick point) but my NS9000X is far better.


    Does anyone else have this racket?
    Is it a clone,Fake or Yonex defect?

    They also sell Arcsaber 10 for US$75

    Please Help!!!!

    almost definitely a fake.
    post some pictures, especially of the serial numbers and we'll be able to tell.
    seems like a lot to pay for a fake as well, if indeed they are fake.

    Anytime you have high flex it is FAKE....Like Cooler said...no need to check further ...
    Why does anyone think they can buy something for less than half price and expect it to be real...???? Unless you know a distributor personally or have access to pro's excess rackets then getting them this cheap is really hard to do...:(

    It's totally fake. The yellow colour of PBSI is to bright. From the price we can tell if it is fake. The fake one only cost about US$25 in Indonesia.

    try to get your money back, and if you cant, play until it breaks. also think about saving a bit and getting a new racket, doesn't have to be YY, but can be another brand.

    No, it doesn't instead it's vibration is pretty minimum even though the shaft is pretty flexible... But T_T... when in that club, there's a pretty bad crash, and my racket was launched away T_T... And I suspect the cone - shaft connector is damaged, when I'm testing the vibration, it goes up down left right... (Used to be up down) T_T...

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your replies!
    I've just brocken one racket with a hard frameshot.
    Didn't really snap but there's a 2 inch crack along the frame, it keeps getting
    longer but the racket holds well.
    I'm going to the shop today, because they said my racket came with a warrenty.
    again thank you all for your replies.

    wow, haha, a warranty on a fake racquet.
    well, that's probably what the $65 you paid is for.
