Is this Nanospeed 9900 fake?
I bought this Nanospeed, it looks real but I'm not sure. The seller is from ebay, but he has a very good rating. Could someone help comfirm if the racquet is real or not?
By the way, should the nanospeed have grommets on the inside?
Second, should the nanospeed be able to bend easily because i can bend the shaft, without too much effort?
racket model: Yonex Nanospeed 9900
shaft serial: 7575174
cone code : 050110SP
The serial and cone code are laser etched not imprinted and the Logos are very clear, not blurry. The blurriness is from the camera.

050110SP means that the racket was made on January 5th, 2001...and I'm sure you realize that NS9900 was not created until recently.

Also another way to tell exactly if the racket is fake is to look at the hologram sticker.
if you can't see the racket paint through it then it is fake.
in your case it is fake :P

Sorry for you.
Can you highlight which seller that you purchased the racket from and why did you mentioned the seller have a good reputation?

1. Shouldn't be easy to flex.
2. 3ug4 printing isn't aligned nor is it crisply printed
3. Bag shouldn't be wrinkly like that. Even keeping an authentic bag folded for a month doesn't make creases like that.
4. The serial is too shiny and the shaft serial looks sketch.
Need pictures of the grip itself but i don't think it will move my decision.

Agree with everyone above that it's a genuine fake!
1. PBSI logo is all misaligned... real one is perfect.
2. Font of the 3UG4 is the fake font
3. Cone serial # "gap spacing" is all uniform between the numbers... real ones are more "messy"
4. Serial code itself says it was made in 2001 which can't be possible since it's a new design
5. Racquet bag is made from the fake softer material that leaves impressions... real bags are more firm and won't flex like that.
NEGATIVE FEEDBACK THE SELLER!!!

Hey, don't worry. It looks original to me. Stiff means you sure can bend it slightly. Hope you paid around USd 180-200 for it.

you need to learn more about how to identify fake racket
definitely a fake
the shaft serial is wrong for the cone code
the cone code says this racket is either 2001 or 2011 production, whereas this thread is being posted in 2010 (there is no way a 2011 racket) and NS9900 does not exist in 2001
the bag looks really cheap maybe from cheap plastic material
the pbsi logo does not have "SP" on it

Don't worry, this is a genuine - original one. I have a NS9900 bought from Sunrise Sports and is cent percent like what is in the photograph. Don't bother on a few clowns around this forum, who have eyes but can't see, and trying to mislead you. 050110SP - means the date of production : 5th January 2010 for Singapore. The SP symbol is there below PBSI around the picture of the shuttle.

Moreover the serial no is etched, so you can be very sure it is genuine. The tag X-Fullerene is in the right place and the 2 knot stringing is the original one for NS 9900
