    Serial number would suggest that this racquet is manufactured in 29th of April 2008... so it is a fake. Also you won't get a new & genuine NS8000 under 100 from anywhere (even the TH models cost about 100 ). In the future please use this thread: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...080#post251080

    You can always contact local Yonex representative and let them handle it. (If the seller is in your country) or you can try to report to police.

    Hi,

    On July 7th, I won a bid on EBay for a Yonex NS8000 (SP), complete with laser engraved serial & batch numbers. This seller is from China. But when I asked him to assure me that it is not a fake, he promptly issued a reimbursement. So those rackets on EBay going under the Yonex brandname and selling for about half the real price, are most probably ALL fakes. As the auctioneer, EBay should accept responsibiltiy and NOT auction fake merchandise. CAVEAT EMPTOR is certainly called for.
