    You can get a fake racket from China (through online sites) with $15 USD easily. Fakes are cheap, almost worthless.

    Regardless if the racket is real or fake, if you can beat your opponents with it, it's a good racket. Make fun of your opponents that you beat them with a fake Yonex AT-700.....

    I used a tennis racket to beat my High School students to prove to them that it's not the racket that wins games.

    Fake rackets are quite popular for H.S. students, they can't afford the high end stuff, so maybe you can sell/give it to a H.S. student and tell them it is a fake.

    The shop I buy all my gear from is a little family business. Their prices on rackets is about $20 higher than a shop no more than a 10 minute walk away. I buy my stuff there because of the relationship I have developed as a customer. It's at the point now where they copy VHS games for me, give me free shirts, free printing on the back of my shirts, and are giving me discounts above and beyond sale prices. When something is not available, then I go to other sources. eg. China for ti-10s
    I guess my view is stop trying to save a buck or two by undercutting local business, you'll get more out of shopping local.
    Hi Mark,

    1-no there isn't. Badminton isn't that popular here. There are no mom and pop shops selling badminton rackets. i'd have to order one in. the price for an armortec-300 is $190 Us Which is a price I'm not paying. It's not about saving a buck or 2, it's about saving one hundred or more $$'s.
    I did find a real MP-100 on Ebay for $150.00 US. to buy one here would have been $250 US at least.

    2-I didn't post this for your sympathy. I posted it because I caught a dishonest person selling fake goods, and hopefully, by reading this post, people will not purchase them.

    U mean http://www.sunrisesports.net ??

    I been there before, it looks like a home page and i wasnt sure to order off it, check how dodgy it looks! The MP99 is 70 quid but you have to pay postage on top of that so i would rather buy it from direct sports with free delevery + gifts. Much more safe =D

    But is this the same Sunrise though? I only know of Sunrise distributing yonex goods which are all labeled as SP, even on packets of strings. The website site seems only to be a UK company with the same name and has nothing to do with the Sunrise in asia.

    no, you need credit card for seller account. not buyer(last time i check), i have like 5. It's quite easy to register a fake account.
