    Sorry to dissapoint. Reasons why it's fake:

    1. Shaft code is in wrong format. Should be seven numerical digits, unique to that individual racket.
    2. Paintjob on the head (at 3:00/9:00) and the characters on the handlecap (JAPAN) are lousy.
    3. The letters in the name "YONEX" are too fat. On a real Yonex, the "O" should look more like a "0"
    4. And of course, you obviously paid to much for this racket. The NS9000X should be at least (and usually more) $200

    A friend bought it from someone at work for about $USD60. Appears as though he got ripped off.

    Some things to note:
    - Bad paint job
    - Weird looking serial number
    - Slightly raised YY logo at T junction
    - Off-looking green end cap logo
    - Bad grommets
    - Positioning of the "TYPE X" lettering
    - Cover doesn't look quite right
    - Anything else?







    Most likely fake because;

    Gold sticker is not legitimate.
    Code should be engraved on the cone, not painted on it.
