Too good to be true?
Saw this ad on hardwarezone:
23 dollars for Yonex AS-40. But this is imports from China. Too good to be true? Likely to be fake?

Sounds kind of fishy to me. What do AS-40s usually cost in your area? Here in Germany they cost around 20€ which is like 31 SGD. You still could meet up with the guy and have a closer look at the tubes and shuttles

yup, i had tested the AS 40 from china - guangzhou from a seller and is same as AS 40 which had sunrise sticker, heard from seller he direct take from china and it cost me RM 60 per tube ^_^

In SG, the retail shops are selling AS-40 in the higher 30 bucks region - 37 to 40 SGD. Therefore I do think it's very fishy as well. Thanks for the advice! I will meet up and have a closer look at the tubes and shuttles before buying.
It's kind of funny that there's a 'Recommended by China Badminton Association' brand there haha.

Your places are so expensive @___@ I get as-50s here for about $25

I highly doubt they're legit. Try buying from a local store in big numbers and get a discount

Hi Canti, where are you getting such cheap shuttles? Perhaps I should get my friends in US to buy and ship them over lol.
Thanks Timothy, I feel so much safer dealing with shops. How about going to Queensway shopping centre there and buy from there?

I doubt your friend can get them at the same price as me because I don't buy it full retail, I always get discounts from the dealers. However you can still get aeroplane black for a damn good price with a bulk discount.
