    Default Fake racket with warranty

    I saw a NS 9000 type X (fake) , it is a make in china and it has warranty like i think 3 months. It is said that the "cheaper" version is 90% from the real thing, but i doubt it. It cost about 69$ USD. I never
    see a fake racket with warranty, anyone encounter this before?

    I have a friend that bought exactly one of those off Ebay. The seller was Queerasfolk3 from recollection. I had a play with his racquet and trust me it was a piece of rubbish. I would imagine the tension on the string's was probably about 19LBS IF THAT and the frame was so flexy (NS 9000 X is an extra stiff frame). I would think if strung at a higher tension the frame would cave in. Keep well away from those cheap imitations from China there are many about. I am sure we are talking about the same batch of racquet's.

    The warrenty that the fake racket carriers as I imagine would be if the racket breaks within 3 months, the place that sold it to you would give you an exchange, but as for an actual system set up for warrenty claims, no way! All the sellers buy from probably one mnufacturer and then the try to make it seem that the rackets are reliable and offer warrenty.

    Nope, they are trying to trick you.

    High-end Yonex rackets are made in Japan. The price is a giveaway too.

    Yea, you are right. I have a friend who bought the fake NS9000 from somewhere else ( not from the same seller) and the frame caved in when he strung at his normal tension should be about 23lbs. But the one i saw , i was told that it could be strung up to 24-25 lbs without the frame caving in and thats where the warranty comes in, if the frame caved in i could claim , so i doubt that all fakes come from 1 source or maybe they are but just an improved quality of the frame.

    After reading your post, i think i am better off buying a lower-end genuine Yonex racket with that price. thanks.

    I would buy a lesser model Yonex. I have recently purchased a Yonex Armortec 500 for 55 or $109 and I have found it's a really good racquet. My other racquet is a Wilson V4 which I picked up for 27 or $54 which is a really nice racquet plays well for my level of play. I think you have to be a very good player to do a racquet such as a Nano Speed 9000 X justice (which you may well be).
    can I also recommend to you the Karakal SL 70, this racquet has caught my eye as one of my friends has the older version now. It is the lightest frame on the market at 70g and can be strung at an amazing 30lbs. I think it's a great buy at $99 for the new 2007 model.I will forward you the link for this special offer price.

    Yea, probably a better choice to buy a lower-end YY racket. Thanks for the website by the way, but i don use Karakal rackets and for that price i would go for a YY racket.

    The racket is a fake, I won't be surprised the so-call warranty is a fake as well. There's NO legit business firm to backup the fakes, as it's illegal to begin with. I wonder how you can really claim the so-call warranty, without being tricked or ripped off for the 2nd time.

    Those fakes are like $10 a piece, heck, for $69, he can make a bunch already to give you the "fakes warranty".

    There is a possibility of that, depends if you have a low quality or high quality counterfeit.
