    Sure,they are fake. There is not the notion "ARMORTIC" in all Yonex products.Does the total price of two fake rackets same as the price of only real racket (AT 8OO)?

    They are not fake. they are probably real tactic rackets.
    but if they're as good as yonex armortec rackets, that's another thing.
    But they're copies of armortec.

    I agree with taby_swe's opinions: "they are probably real tactic rackets", but I always bear in mind that they are legally-fake-of-Yonex-racket or "mimic products".I saw in bbespots.com that the price of TACTIC AMORTIC 700 (4UG2)is 60USD.May be it is made by Chinese.

    Tactic is a badminton company, separate from YONEX...Tactic is making "amortic" racquets to sound and probably look like the yonex versions. amortic is made by tactic. armortec is made by yonex.

    its like two cars from different companies which have similar sounding names, and may look similar....would u call one of these fake?

    There is only VNmese company which produces quality badminton rackets named HAIYEN.May I take them an advice that they have to manufacture a new version which is similar the Yonex AT 800 OF and named AMORTEEK 800? If they do that, would HAIYEN become a worldwide brand name?

    a racquet claiming to be yonex but isn't a yonex is a fake.
    a racquet with another name with different models, trying to look like a yonex is a clone.

    fakes are fakes.
    hi qua, winnex, etc, are clones.

    I hate the notions of clone (especially with the copying of famous AT Yonex's rackets) include: AMORTIC,ARMOTEK,LAMORTEC,AMOURTEC... Which are the another names of clone rackets from that you know? In addition, I had been a"victim" of epidemic-clone, so that...

    Just out of curiosity, where do you find these ARMORTIC 800 rackets? Not that I'm interested in buying one, but I'd like to see what they look like.

    FYI, the AT series specially AT800, has a head made of a different material, so therefore just determine wut material the head is of the raquet and you will know what brand it is

    Default Fakes vs Clones

    Let's try and get this straight.

    Fakes are products pretending to be the real thing and is marketed as the real thing under the brand name that the fakes are pretending to be. This is illegal and the idea is to profit from the branded product. For example, a real Yonex AT700 retails for over CAD$270 in Canada. Let say that the counterfeiters are trying to make money off that and offer fake AT700 at $199 (savings of over $70) and you buy it thinking that you are getting the real product for a very good price. The seller in turn pockets (assume that it only cost them $20 for the fake) $179 which is almost 900% profit. See the incentives? If the product is defective, you would approach Yonex thinking that it's the real thing.

    A clone seller buys their products off authorized dealer/distributor at wholesale price and market them under that manufacturer brand. Everything is legit. If the product is defective, you would approach the seller or distributor or manufacturer and get it replaced (very much like Yonex would replace their defective products).

    I'd asked Winex previously on why they would want to clone Yonex models. The answer given was that the consumers requested it. Winex has its own models but everyone tend to ask "Which one would be the closest or most like the Yonex xxx?".

    If I show you a Winex Ti-12, I think the first question most of you would ask would be "which Yonex model is it most like?" Are the clones exactly like the original? No, it trys to be but there are differences. For example, the Winex Mighty Muscle 100 looks like the Yonex MP100 but is less stiff so it cannot be exactly like the MP100.
