    Interesting, most poeple will grip the handle closer to the cone, but you cut the handle, does the playability between these two really have a lot of differences ? (might try experimenting this ) And the picture you posted, is it after the modification ? thanks ...

    Hi,

    I asked the question how to identified a fake Apacs racket.
    I am about to order rackets from a ebayer but I did not mention any name

    Lets not jump into conclusion & may ruin a ebayer business (Racquet_sports business)
    There are others selling Apacs rackets on ebay and on other online aution too.

    Thanks

    Do fake APACS exist? I mean the profit they could make would be extremely small, I don't think it would be worth their time and resources.

    people will only forge buyers on those *branded* goods.
    that's why you only see Yonex clone, not the other way around.
    no worry of fake Apacs...

    sorry...you did what?


    Glad to see it survived...But should "just playing badminton" with it be a good enough test?
    I don't know about you, but I don't have to beat any dumpsters away from me with my racket in day to day life...

    Oops. I should have put a smiley after my reply to the "Shaf" misspelling of "shaft" on the endcap photo comment that I may have gotten a fake. No, the racket is genuine.

    I cut the handle down in length and it helps my style of playing because when I play the back position in doubles, I intuitively grip right to the end where the endcap is. It's the same as holding it further up the handle but I like feeling the endcap. It's just my preference YMMV.

    Oops #2... I also forgot to mention those rackets I bash were already injured and needed to be put down. I like to see how strong each racket's material is in a severe impact. I use the same bin behind my home and hit each racket the same way - once on the rim and once on the shaft.

    well sure, but some ebay sellers are powerhouses compared to others...

    anyways, back to what i said earlier 2 rackets for 55 usd sounds too good to be true.

    I emailed racquet_sports a while ago and he also sells yonex rackets are normal prices so i think his apacs are real. People who try to make fakes are likely more to copy a large company like yonex rather than a small company such as apacs.

    I'm getting my Nano Pro 9600 Tour and Nano 900 Power (Red) sometime this June and I just got my EdgeSaber 10 and Visible Hollow 1300 that actually has the "t" in "shaft".

    Did you get them from racquet_sports? I was watching some of his items for sale at the big auction site yesterday, and today they were all gone.
