Picture #4, 5, 6...more clues.
All right, here are the next pictures.
Pictures of the T joints, I tried to get a clear picture for everyone.
These are all the same rackets, sorry if they are placed in different order, but I'm sure the pros can tell the difference from the paint jobs on the rackets.
Oh, the string on the AT700 is RED YONEX BG-65TI, if anyone is curious.

I may reassess my initial guess, after i see a few more pictures moving towards the cone...
I'd circle my concerns of the cone & shaft, to illustrate my reasoning, but i'm too lazy at the moment

Well i just lost my last wall of text i typed... LOL
The short of my reassessment is this:
The AT700 to me appears fake as the paint does not seem to conform to the pics listed on yonex.co.jp
Also from the pictures the YY at the T-section seems somewhat distorted.
I do not know enough about the NS series to make a proper guess...
The NS7 series seems genuine enough from the picture i've seen, and inspected.
My difficulty is with the NS6 series racquet, due to having seen various photos showing the racquet without the MP grommets at T-joint; where as other photos have the MP grommets at the T...
Also, I'm not sure if its the lighting in the pic, but the YY seems slightly distorted from the first initial pictures, whereas the pictures i've seen on the Yonex.co.jp website clearly show crisp black YY, as opposed to a slightly grey faded YY... bah...
So now I rate them like this... and please do not listen to me lol... i tend to over analyze things
2.) Looks fake.
3.) Looks fake...

Maybe giving us the real racquets vs fakes would be better. Hehe it'll be much easier!!!

NanoSpeed 6000 is fake....... i think.

definitely AT 700 is fake cuase it's double gromits smaller not yonex size

All the three are fakes. Very bad paint work.

Are you sure all the pictures are of the same rackets? For instance, the AT700, the YY logo is way too close in the last picture, while in the pictures prior, the logo is OK. Another example, the NS6000 YY logo is not lined up and off center in Post # 56. But in the other pictures, it's fine.
Things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmmmmm..."

I agree with Dan..he just has three real rackets, and a good fake of each...tricky
