    Default variety of fakes in china

    just wanna share it with u all..

    http://auction1.paipai.com/search/0/...08B0-4529.html

    See the column on the middle?That's what i mean.

    The price range of fakes in china starts at 60rmb-480rmb.Their characteristics n material used,etc r different.I heard that the highest end of fake can hold up to 30lbs,n it said to have the build in t-joint in it.The feeling is almost the same with the real one.The paint job is also similar to the genuine one.


    Well..that's just a bit of what's inside the website.Just click on it to see more.It's in chinese..

    I try not to beat up an old topic to death here.

    However, I think what you trying to say is, fakes do have different "standard". However, without a reliable QC, how they can maintain such standard.

    1. If they have confidence in their own product, why can't they introduce their own brand name?

    2. The same fake can be sold for $50 in 1 store, also can be sold for $500 in another store. If a store owner is desparated for $$$, why can't he import the "lower end fake", and sell for "higher end fake" price? I mean, it's all fake to begin with anyway.

    Therefore, my point of view is, fakes are unreliable. If you end up with a usable one, consider yourself lucky. Mostly, you will end up something totally waste of your $$$.

    Also, to me, 480 RMB ($70 US) is not that cheap any more. You can easily obtain a well made non-yonex high end racket (SOTX, Kason, Yangyang, Victor pops into my mind) for that price in Asian market.
