    the cone code makes no sense
    cone code is the date that racket being produced
    it is DD MM Y X CC
    D: day
    M: month
    Y: year (yes only 1 number)
    X: batch or revision number
    CC: 2 area code

    so, let's break down that racket cone code:
    18 69 5 9 SP
    so, this racket is produced day 18, month 69, 2005 for SP distribution
    yup, there is no such thing as month 69.. it makes no sense, so we know it is a fake racket
    Thank You Very Much Avenger ^^

    btw, the racket has some marks, which could be from clashes, so buy it at your own risk (actually, add 35 pounds and you can buy a new one + goodies)

    the first one should be fine, stadium sports is yonex authorised dealer

    for the second one, I cannot say for certain, but if I recall it from my memory, they also should be fine

    that's what i'm thinking, but you couldn't get away with selling that much stuff and have a 100% rating if they were all fake?

    ebay 100% rating means nothing

    I saw an obvious fake seller that have 100% buyer feedback. most people don't know that they are buying fake racket. they are too ignorant since thinking it is a good bargain

    also, buyer feedback can be manipulated, using bot, they could create hundreds or even thousands new account and used it to rate their seller account

    Wow...thanks for the insight Avenger. I'm kinda glad I enquired here first. I had a look on Mybadmintonshop and they quoted a price of $220AUD for the N90II..that was where I started to get doubts.

    believe it or not, if it's from China, it would be even more expensive
    because in China, their pricing policy: expensive = better quality
    heck, I saw a report from Mintel (as marketing student) that they increase price of beer by 400% in 1 year and people still buy it
    or how zara in China cost you £119 while in UK cost you £109, in Italy cost you £88 (based on same product)

    so yeah, stay away if the price is too good to be true

    well, he said it clearly it is a REPLICA
    and high end Yonex such as VT70 should be made in JAPAN (and he stated clearly it is made in Taiwan)
    and now the price of the racket is only £34..
    you know it based on the price it is too good to be true
    real Yonex would cost you around 250 USD

    the shaft serials is too low for the cone code (2009 production)
    the bag is fake for sure, the real one is using high grade fabric material (not plastic like that)
    the sunrise sticker should be covering the cone code

    I can conclude, it is a FAKE racket
