Do you trust ebay?
I know there is an ebay watching thread, but this is different, I hope.
Would you consider buying off Ebay for the cheap prices? Or are you like me and always waay too suspicious to even think about the offers ebay has?

Ebay I do trust. The problem I have is with the sellers.
The key point about Ebay is that it is made up of many individual sellers. The spectrum of the market for products, prices, and (to a degree) human nature can be seen. Some sellers are great, some sellers I don't touch with a bargepole.
Do your research and ask the questions BEFORE your buy. If you plan on buying upper-end, genuine Yonex, you have to be extra cautious.

Yeah, I know Ebay is not the problem, it's the scammers that are trying to rip people off.
But even the Top Rated sellers with 100%ish feedback are still selling the racquet for a standard shop price. So why do people not play it safe and buy from authorised shops?

There are plenty of 100% sellers that sell fakes as well and are only on 100% because of buyer ignorance (and/or extremely low prices so even if they find out it's a fake the low price doesn't make it feel a complete rip off).
As others have said do your homework beforehand
*shouldn't this be in chit-chat?*
