Use your Ebay skills to look for other clues as to why this seller is selling fakes for sure..
Still want to believe the seller?
There are many sellers on Ebay who have been previously confirmed by BF users as sellers of genuine products (Sumai03 et al), they are just hard to find in a sea of fake sellers. If you are looking for a genuine Yonex Arc or Nano series, you will need to be most careful.

The listing does not have much description/pictures of the rackets. Hard to tell imo.

Daran - I'm with epermana. To be sure, ask for photos of the product you will get if you win.
In any case the seller is a bricks & mortar business in Truro UK selling with a BIN (Buy-It-Now). That means you're protected by UK law and distance selling regs. Just pay via PAYPAL and send it back using Special Delivery if there's any doubt.

UK serial should be alright i guess.

Thanks klc28, I hope you also can check the serial number? any chance?

Daran - The serial is in line with my expectation but note that I do not run a serial number DB like leehsim does. I check for a whole basket of things on an Ebay seller before I buy as serials, by themselves, cannot be used as proof whether a racket is genuine or not. That is why, when a racket serial checks out, leehsim stills says you need to inspect the racket to be sure.
However, all thing considered, and without any further info than what you have provided, I would be happy to buy from this seller with UK consumer law protecting you. Just check it when you get it in your hands.
BTW-Good find! (IMHO)

ok I still want to try some example though I have been starting to understand ebay seller's logic.
For example, some 2 links with low prices
for top racquets -
just fakes in principal (because of the price)?
and for example good price - http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-YONEX-ARMORT...3A1%7C294%3A50
can be interesting, I mean I can start to ask seller about photos and so on?

Listing 3 could be genuine. I believe "iooho" is the same seller as "badmintondeals" (http://myworld.ebay.com/badmintondeals/) as both of their profiles have the same description, as seen below. I believe they do so to target 2 different markets, that's all.
"Welcome to our "iooho/badmintondeals" eBay store! We are the largest authourized dealer of YONEX in Hong Kong, specialising in Badminton products like rackets, strings, clothings, footwear & accessories. All products listed are guaranteed to be AUTHENTIC and GENUINE. Feel confident & shop happily from us! @^_^@ "
I have dealt with badmintondeals before, buying 2 pairs of yonex shoes and 1 yonex shirt and they look genuine to me. No guarantee though.
I actually have a guide to spot yonex counterfeit, which I updated regularly. It may not be complete. So, if I miss anything which could be useful in helping the community, let me know.
I do sell rackets once in a while =>

By the way, price is not an indicator. Fakes have been known to be sold at low and high prices. This is especially true if it is an auction where genuine rackets can have a low start price.

Correct me if I'm wrong, just trying to help XD
