I want to exclusively point out a fake seller on eBay (based in USA).
This seller's name is tjmax369 , he is currently selling Fake Yonex Shuttles and Fake Yonex Strings on eBay.
Fake Yonex shuttles: AS-60, which never exist in Yonex history. You can easily buy these fake AS-60 in China with $6 USD a tube.
Fake Yonex Strings: He sells weird colors of strings and some of them are with wrong "CH" logo on the packs. Solid-Blue color of BG85 never exists in Yonex history.
Fake Yonex Grips: Yonex doesn't put that R with circle on the grips tape after "Yonex". So, the product logo is wrong, hence the item is fake.
I emailed this seller, and he insisted that he is selling real Yonex items sourced from Asia. Well, I tell you what, he is either tricked or just didn't want to admit it.

andykousa99 = come4bestprice
He changed his e-bay id, but his auction format is the same and feedback rating also. He is mentioned in the fake stuff sellers list of bluejeff.
Link isn't fully readible here (in browser it is), but one reads ..viewfeedback&userid=andykousa99.. and the other reads ..viewfeedback&userid=come4bestprice..

the change in string pattern came with new type of strings, so i can't objectively say if the extra power comes from the strings or the pattern (i'm inclined to say the strings), but i have noticed that the off-center shots feel horrible, and you KNOW they're off-center when they are...
plus, theres the additional stress on that odd cross, and its been said its prone to snapping if you screw up a shot and it lands there real hard.
and yes, the mp88 looks real to me. it fact, it looks nearly identical to one i saw at school. the only difference was that the sunrise sticker was put on crooked, relative to yours.

And the supposedly more power... it's impossible for me to know, can't compare it with another racquet, too much different properties.
Of course the most important thing is that it is a genuine mp88 .

user id - "winson.lee"
his other auctions with a mp100 and at800-o has piss-poor photos, so its hard to tell, although the grip wrapping does look loose.
its a shame if he really is selling them for a friend, because his shoddy products is tainting his buddy's name.

Help Is This Fake
i recently won an auction. I had no diea baout all of these fakes. (Call me stupid I didnt hear ne thing about this.) Any ways the seller tells me he got them from a friend who was closing his sports store in Hong Kong. He tells me tehy should be real but he is uncertain. He is willing to give me a refund if I am unsatisfied but I couldnt tell if they are real when I get them anyways. I cood play wiht them but really if it is high quality I may not know the difference. He did have a picture of teh serial number. Any ideas on teh authenticity of this one? Also why do different armotec racekts have different covers. Ive seen pics of about three different kinds.

At least, the seller agrees to pay for refund, in case of any fraud. Why don't you provide us some pic once u received the racket? Make sure the pics show detail such as butt cap, cone (with serial), shaft (letter), shaft (serial), and head frame.
Regarding to the cover, different dealer can order different cover/bag, this is especially true for different regions. Personally, I think use the cover to determine whether a racket is fake is very difficult.

The seller is very well known for dealing in fakes.
But even if he wasn't, ask yourself this, is it really possible that a genuine racket sold in the UK for GBP150 RRP could be less than GBP25 in China?
Check out the chinese badminton racket vendor websites for an indication.
China can be pretty cheap for some things. Genuine Yonex rackets is not one of them.
