I have no idea why one of the girls got the fake racket. I imagine she wanted a good brand at a bargain price. The other girl wanted an NS8k cos she saw the first doing rather well with one. Having also unintentally bought a head heavy fake, the second girl started doing rather well in the power also.
I question the belief that fakes are necessarily worst quality for the intended purpose. In the case NS8K, and legality aside, I have no trouble recommending a fake for anyone who want to buy this particular model for power, because the genuine article simply cannot deliver what Yonex promised for a significant number of potential buyers.
I have strung a few fake rackets, apart from the wonkey paint job, and the general cheap feel to them, I have not observed their durability, measured by the rate of breakage, being worst than the non-fakes.

Even if we talk about price vs. performance, the major problem for many fakes (besides the really dirty cheap ones) is lack of consistency. It's almost impossible to pick up 2 fakes which offers same characteristics. Why? Because the manufacture get whatever they get on the hand, and paint the same. Therefore, u can get an ISO MP99, or an OVal MP99, or a all metal MP99, etc. All such and such greatly eliminate the player's selectability and playability.
Of course, equipment selection is very much down to own preference. However, my point is, why can't some one get a real racket (regardless the brand), while NOT promote the fake business.

Sorry, I forgot to mention the fake one for #1 is a fake MP30. I could not believe when I first saw it.
Hi CoolDoo6, I have to defend American here. Yes, it is not illegal to buy conterfeit racquet. In fact, it is not illegal to recieve the conterfeit currency also. But it is illegal when you knowingly pass the funny money to the other people. Yes, it is illegal to sell fake goods in US. It is also illegal to sell conterfeit item in UK also. Just because it is very difficult to enforce the law on the mom and pop shop, it dose not make it legal. This is just an extreme example. If I murder a person in cold blood and I escape to Iran where I am out of reach of US law. Did I break the US law? Yes! If I did the same thing in UK did I beark the UK law? Yes! I would like to argue that many of the fake good manufacturers are in China and just because those bad people take advantage of us (badminton fans here in US and around the world) and they can get away with stealing our money, that does not make it right. If you know any US company make or sell conterfeit good or knowingly sell conterfeit goods, please let me know. I will personally report it to the state auth. to help shot it down.
I also agree with you and many menbers here that YY might not make the racquet that match with a player. In Fact, they just make a lot of different knod of racquet and hope one fits you or me. If you can not find one, try a Wilson or a clone. They make good racquet too.
I started this post to get some advice on how to tell other members on their misfortune and not to hurt their feeling. If you wish to argue the merit of using fake goods and (il)legal system, please start another post.

Aw its a cute looking girl? Thats so hard to break it to her. But tell her with kindness and when shes sitting down and is very calm. Slowly break it to her and and be sympathetic. =[

The real question is which situation would you prefer:
(a) be a fool once and learn stuff and become smart or
(b) be a fool for a long time and learn much later
What do you think will hurt more? I guess bad news messengers always get killed. *shrugs*
