    Default real fakes!

    I wonder if real fake yonex racquets will be as popular as fake real yonex badminton racquets.

    The good part is, at least this seller is honest.

    His rackets looks more like a real MP100 than some other's black version "fake" which still claims to be "real".

    it could be pressure have got through to the fake seller(s) from laurence's comparison ad's and complaints from many ebay customers who got duped from buying a fake.

    Selling a counterfeit item on ebay is illegal, and I guess the posting will go down.

    So far, the price is $39.00 with no reserve. If you can win the bid at $39, it is not a bad price for a decent fake. Most people cannot tell the difference visually so one can impress the others in the court. I will pass and get a Genji or something if I need a cheapie. I would not mind having a real MP 100 though.

    the problem with fakes is that:
    - if you are using one that inevitably makes you a poser
    - given above, it makes people think you are worse than you are. I'd rather play with an cheap and ugly looking but good playing racquet. (not too ugly though... )
    - are made by people tend to be disreputable. Who much quality control do you suppose they have? (in the auction, it doesn't even mention if it's graphite at all.)
