all 3 looks real to me.. can't find any hints to make me think otherwise..
from the gorments all looks like the real thing
logos and fonts looks good and espeically if u look at 1 and 3's
date code, 1 and 3 r made 4 days apart and its around 4K difference in the serial numbers.. which rather makes sense.. and if Fakes actually have
taken fine details like that into consideration then i must admit i have been fooled..

my guess is the first racquet, some of the details in the paint just doesn't look right, and the wrapping on the handle doesn't seem to match the other two

I'd question #2, but man if any are fake, they are doing a good job.

#3 is a fake. The butt cap is to flat and the gold paint show matalic flake. #1 is fake because the gold paint is not smooth and grommet is too short on the side.
How do you get a such good counterfeit? Also, was the stickers in picture1 remove to make it more difficult for us to ID the fake?
I thought you gave up on NS9k already? why did you get these again?

I do not prefer the 9000s, doesn't mean I gave up on them.
I did not remove the stickers, the photo was not good. Here's a better picture (#1 is blurry, my bad):

but with all the other stuffs that does looks right...
i would have no problem believing its just a QC thing if the
guy selling it says so

so easy, first batch (photo #5) of photos are sufficient.
the racket with serial No. 6301489 cone code:180762US is fake.
others are real

Look at the "Ti" word placement on the frame(3rd pic).
Racket #1: Ti is slightly to the right to the grommet
Racket #2: Ti is ontop of the grommet
Racket #3: Ti is ontop of the grommet
Now look at this "Ti" placement from the BBESHOP website. The Ti is also slightly to the right of the grommet. Also note that BBESHOP is reputable and sells non-fake rackets.
So in conclusion, #1 is real, #2 and #3 are fakes
So do I win a cookie?

doesn't the serial # goes with all model together? (except the TW factory)
so if u spot a problem with it then it probally is
but on the other hand if we take the #1 as ref.. july 4 -> july 18
14 days difference and the serial number is off by 18k.. which still
seems kinda believalbe to me.. IF and only IF, what i read a loong time ago was true that the serial number goes up around 1k + and - everyday

Thats what I initially thought-that it was a trick question. since the thread title is Which is the Fake NS9000S and #2 is NS9000X.
I thought the serial no.s and cone code seemed to check out to me.
