    Both are fake. The price should tell you that. The seller of the NS9KX is stupid as he showed the cone code, which is obviously fake as the cone code should be in the format DDMMY?CC where DD is a day, MM is the month, Y is the year, ? is a digit no-one outside of Yonex knows the meaning of and CC is the distribution code.

    Come on mate, look at the price. How much should an AT700 normally retail for? That will give you your answer. You might be lucky and get a good fake, or it might break after 3 or 4 shots.

    I'd recommend using the money on the card, a long with a little bit of your own to buy an Apacs racket. They're cheap, some look like high end Yonex and they play really well.

    Yeah, Fake

    Yeah, for sure. When I was living in the Philippines, there were places there that you could buy a Yonex and others at about the same price. I never purchased one but you would be surprised how close they are to the real thing. Unless you really knew the racquet, you could not tell the difference. A guy use to play with us with one of those and he had it for more than a year before he had problems.

    However, I agree with others here, go with another model that has some sort of quality control and a company that stands behind their product. Of course, for that low price and if you play lightly/sparingly, it might serve you well for a while. Good Luck.

    A friend of mine had a fake Arcsaber 10, it didn't last long at all - even less time than my genuine Arc10 and believe me, that wasn't very long. Don't buy a fake, you could do much better.

    hey phandrew, relax dude. at least he was nice about it.

    however. in the future, try not to look to ebay to buy rackets. most rackets on there are fake. use online stores in order to reduce the risk. better yet, try to get rackets in person.

    well, at least he listens the the advice given to him.better than Gold-, who just asked questions. Maybe it is time to introduce Daisuke to a good friend, the search button.

    of course, it could have saved space from this , this , this, this, this,this, and this.
    Maybe we should just make a special thread for him. Just like Gold-...
