    if it is new and it is really cheap, like less than 50% of retail price, then most likely they are fake.

    oh, and of course, nanospeed 8400 and nanospeed 50000 are not models from Yonex. so they have to be fake.

    There are lots of posts in the the forums about how to spot fakes you can research this up. As for pricing, go to a Yonex authorized dealer (either online store or shop) and look at their prices.

    I am going thru the yonex web page & came across the article how to spot a fake.

    i am convinced that tha nanospeed 8400 & 50000 are fake but the armotec looks like the real deal. the engraved serial # & the correct logo

    did they come from the same dealer? who is this dealer? how much did they cost you?

    fake? do not buy it in a hurry cause it is super cheap. scout around, check around stores the same exact model. any difference of cosmetic etc... just never do greedy.
