    Not unless you do research and get connections. That is also why are people at a certain level (ie. degrees, qualifications, experience) compared to others if you put it that way. However, I am not going into detail about that.

    Hi Minesh,

    Silentheart is absolutely correct. Please post the pictures when you get it. Given the price and the UK code, there is a high probability that it's fake. Not even SP code NS9000x is that cheap. Maybe if it were TH code it might be possible.

    Can you also post a link to the seller's current auctions?

    I think it is important to point out that the seller who provided minty with the refund never actually says the racket was 100% genuine in his sales pitch.

    Check it out

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...pr omot_widget

    So i personally think you are very lucky to get your refund because he could have just said,"I never said it was genuine and so i dont have to give you your money back."

    The only sentence on his site which implies that it is a genuine racket is
    "This is 100% brand new racket from Yonex Factory in Japan"
    But, even this sentence only tells us that it is new, for the yonex factory; for it could be a factory producing fakes with a huge yonex logo on the outside.

    So i think this is actually a "good guy" for giving a refund when technically he didnt false advertise or do anything essentially wrong. LOL dont mistake me for the Ebay seller. I just dont buy things off ebay unless i am 100% certain and try to avoid it in most cases.

    PLEASE SHOPPERS BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!

    Cannot emphasize that enough

    I don't see the logic here.

    1. Business transaction with fake is ILLEGAL to begin with. Details like how you promote it, or whether you even make profit or not, is not to be considered. The fake seller broke the law, period. If he dares to say, "i did not say it's geniune, and I don't give you refund" that will only nail him down badly. It's a crime.

    2. Yonex Factory in JP means Yonex authorized prodution line. Yonex is a trade mark, no factory can gain this title simply by putting a sign on the building. It's like, I can't put a MicroSoft sign in front my room, and imply that my house is part of MicroSoft facility, right?

    This ebay seller needs to be removed from eBay, its unacceptable that people are buying fakes in England. His location is stated as Hampshire. I'm going to report this to the police. I don't know about laws over in Asia but here this kinda thing is a serious crime!

    Interesting how Minesh buys a fake, gets a refund and then decides to leave a positive on eBay?

    i had left the positive fb before i had taken a proper look at the racket. i just assumed it was real and sent good fb. i then asked on here and found out that it was fake. he had also sent me good fb. i decided that showing the ebay seller on here was enough so many people viewing will be deterred away from them.

    It's a fake. It doesn't say gunmetal and the word that says elastic ti----the t should be very very near the grommets. Yours isn't.

    Not sure about your new one, the date code/serial fonts are too big. Could just be the shakiness of the camera though.

    it is a genuine one. the laser etching isnt that bold is must have been the camera. it is a uk spec one which was bought from a uk authorised dealer. central sports i think.

    it is a real one. i have also had it checked buy my badminton coach who is yonex sponsored. It cam with the little card circle saying bg65ti attached to the strings with a little whit plastic clip(like on all genuine ones), the serial numbers are laser etched and legit. Basically it is a uk coded genuine one bought from a uk authorised yonex dealer so it is real.

    Minty,

    Show us the acutal picture. We want to see it anyways. I find it a bit odd why the strings come already on there because normally high-end rackets do not come with any.
