    abt the fake shoe, we do have a lot of those models here. It is a fake just a strip down version of the original shoe. I think it was name "World Champion 2" or something.

    hehe
    This is off-topic but that item has been ruled to be a fake (i.e. it's not the actual ball that Beckham kicked into the standards on his missed penalty shot).

    From the CNN article, actually the ball is the actual ball, it's the bidder that who is fake. But I still can't believe someone will pay 23K Euro to buy it.

    Default a Fake AT800

    Here is another Fake AT800 racquet on eBay. Obviously, there are just too many spots that are too easy to see.

    1. 2UG3? You gotta be kidding me.
    2. CSC fat cap is not there.
    3. Offensive should be orange/yellow, not green
    4. Serials starts with 3815xxx should be something before 2002, even my 2002 MP88 is starting with 39xxxxx, but back in 2002 we have no AT800, not even 700 yet!

    and there are others......too lazy to type all out.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3689675699

    PS: Interesting that the seller stated the serials is engraved, I guess fakes are catching up. We now need to look harder at serials.

    That ad highlighted by Bluejeff should be used as a learning tool to see how many faults a buyer can find.

    What kind of a fake is it when even the colour is wrong

    There are honest sellers on Ebay selling the genuine article. Sellers like this guy need a Bobbit.

    The 2U/G3 is killing point. Plus the colour really makes it a noticable fake.

    Dumb seller.

    Thanks BlueJeff providing all these knowledges to indentify fake racquets. But I wish the fake racquet producers are not browsing this forum. I think all these are easy to fix, and it will tougher to identify the fake ones.

    It's OK, no matter how much they improve, fakes are still fakes and even if they are 99% the same, I will still try my best to find that 1% difference and bunch them in the face

    If they can copy 100%, then great!! they just become genuine.....

    5. The frame should be Ultra H.M. Graphite + gForce Ti, not Ultimum Titanium
    6. The OF version should be Extra Stiff, not stiff....says on the shaft!!

    eBay cares about fake items, but it is hard for a regular person to see if the racquet is fake or not (if this person never seen the real ones before), so they would most likely do nothing about it. And since Yonex, Inc is NOT participated in the VeRo Program, there is no way to stop fakes selling on ebay at this moment.

    The best I can do is to post information here in this thread, and hopefully people would see it......

    This seller has a good feedback rating (98%). I wonder if he has sold racquets before? Maybe he doesn't know its a fake? (Unlikely, I think).

    I think in many cases, the buyers are unaware that they are buying a fake and when they receive the racquets, it all looks good. They are happy with the purchase and give a good feedback rating. It would seem that if someone was a diligent badminton buyer, they would do the research to find out what distinguishes fakes from real racquets. It's good that we have a forum and BFers here to help in that regard.
