    Default Broke FAKE Yonex MP 100 in 1 day!

    Hahaha!

    As some might know, I did buy 3 fake racquets before not knowing it from Orient-Pearl on ebay. Just for the purpose of testing, I decided to use the fake MP 100 i bought. I could find so many wrong things about it! I felt my grip loose. The racket was feeling not that even balanced.

    on my 3rd game that night! I jumped in the air for a deadly smash and it wasn't really the shuttlecock which got smashed but the racket instead! That was gross! First time I ever saw this. Never in my life, I broke a badminton racquet like that.. even the cheapest ones.

    Here are the pictures!! Give your comments!!

    Did your racket fly and hit someone?

    no! hopefully, there was my grip and it broke on my palm. I was like what the heck! how could i miss the smash! then i feel something in my palm, my racket was not straight! i check it.. and lolz! but looks like inside the wood, the stem is made up of 2 parts.. you can see in the pic where it broke.. is it normal for the stem inside to be such?

    That's very unfortunate indeed, the racket clearly is fake, because it has that SP thing and the PBSI logo.

    GOod luck on your next buy

    Actually no...the SP on the shaft and the PBSI logo on the cone doesn't mean that a racquet is fake.

    Don't ever think a fake will give the performance of a genuine racket. It will end up more expensive, and shorter life span to oneself (frustrations, stresses, etc) and prone to accidents which may also inflict injuries.

    Actually, a lot of high level hard hitters tend to break racquets that way- cracking the handle.

    Personally, it mostly happens on backhand smashes because the whipping is so strong there.

    But you might be right, that it happens even more often on clone racquets.

    oh God, help us all here! every single yonex racket here have the SP thingy and the PBSI logo on the cone. (i'm in malaysia anyway)

    come on, where do you get that info? read a bit on country distribution code please. you may freak out some of the less well informed newbies with that piece of mis-info.

    I agree with you Napee, I'm not from Malaysia but I've bought many rackets from around the world. It's not because there's PBSI on the cone and it is SP that is not fake. I've bought rackets directly from Singapore and M'sia (when I was on a trip) and have ordered online from their shops and I can conclude that they're not fakes. The quality is as good as originals, even better than some of the US I've bought before (their handles break so easily).
