    Default fake nanospeed 9000 vs another racket

    Well, it seems like I've purchased a fake Nanospeed 9000 off of ebay. My question is, how is the performance of a fake compared to the real thing usually? well, I guess its probably worse

    But, how does the performance of a fake compare to another racket which would be similarly priced? (45)

    Most likely its worse to similar priced alternatives. why should they bother with anything else than cosmetics?? That would lower their profits..

    hmmm true.... but then again, the fact that they have to make it very similar visually means it probably shares some of the same characteristics as the real thing? has anyone tried one of the fakes in a game?

    As Twobeer already said, it must not share the same characterstics because someone who bought a fake and is unaware of this never will know how the real thing plays.
    If you like the fake 9000 then it is okay to play with it. But from most cases I ve heard is that the fake rackets in most cases are very different from its original.

    True. I haven't yet played with the racket and won't be able to before the window for returning it finishes. So I want to know if it's a good idea to keep it and use it instead of a genuine racket priced similarly.

    OK, if I try and return this one and get an Apacs one instead, that also claims to use elastic Ti. Is it likely to really use it?

    so, if I had a choice between an Apacs nanospeed 9000 and say a MP 44, which one is better?

    dun think the apacs one will have elastic TI. in the case of the strip of titanium mesh composite found in the titanum series.. the other brands which cloned the titanum series mostly did not use a titanum mesh composite.. they merely used a paint job and made the racket look as if it had titanum in it.. there's a reason wy yonex rackets are priced so high. Other companies do not have the technology or the equipment to implement such technologies yonex uses and can only 'con' the consumers tt they have wat yonex have at a much lower price. which is not true. I have personally used apacs rackets they feel kinda hollow compared to the real thing. but wat we have to consider is whether tt investment in a genuine racket would make tt much difference in our game..

    I have played with a fake (NS 9000X) my friend bought it off Ebay and oh boy was it poor, my old Yonex Isometric MF which cost me 20 was a much nicer racquet to play with. For 45 you can get yourself a very good racquet, I picked up an Amortec 500 for 55. Look at the Carlton Powerblade Carbon TT which you can pick up for 40 or the Carlton Powerblade Superlite at 53. Both are very nice racquet's and can be strung up to 28lbs. For the money you will be hard pushed to do better. Here is the link happy shopping.

    Give me a shout if you need any help.

    OK, so that's sorted. I wanna return it. Can anyone give me some advice on how to get a return sorted with the guy on ebay? everspring_sports. Do people generally have an easy time getting returns on this kind of thing? Is it possible?

    You should be entitled to a refund since that kind of deal ws not legal to begin with since it was not a genuine item.

    Report to Ebay and or PayPal to claim this.

    Thanks.

    Do I have to return the item itself or can I just get the refund? Returning the item will be a great hassle as the dealer is in another country.

    Do I need to get Yonex to confirm that it's fake or will ebay do it anyway? And how can I get yonex to confirm it?

    For returnign the item, you should talk to the seller about that. If saids you can return the item, get him to pay for it.

    Contact Ebay and setup the claim, I don't think you would need Yonex to back up. You could do it if you wish - by contacting Yonex Japan with the serial/date information.

    Thank you matt.

    One final question, is there any time limit on how long I can take before approaching ebay on the matter?

    Nope, up to you but if you want to make them respond right away, I guess you can file one with Ebay right now if you wish.

    Thanks. The fact that he sent me the wrong string I'm hoping will also help (he said yonex bg-65 but sent me an apacs ti 0.70mm spider), although we only agreed about the string through email. I'll try to keep posting what happens on this website so that anyone who wants to help me out can do so.

    I sent him an email earlier saying that the serial number and date code don't match, and that the yonex hologram was missing, and asked him where he got the racket from. He responded by saying the rackets were imported from China and asked me if i meant the sticker.

    I then replied earlier today by saying the rackets were fake and that I'd like a refund, but there has been no response yet although I think this is probably because of time zone differences.
