    For us in Australia only Open Graded Tournament use Yonex AS 50 shuttlecocks other than that we use Sea Lion which imo is the best, the rest like Apacs Aero-Flight 700, RSL

    i think everywhere almost the same - yonex as 40 price has risen too much, now only limited players using...

    one interesting point about as 40 - if you weigh every one of them don't be surprise to find their weights are precisely all the same!

    I found someone through alibaba that claims to sell Yonex AS-50 for $9.18 per dozen.
    The company is called "Minwei Sport Company" and this is the direct link http://www.topseller.com.cn/product/...cock_AS50.html

    He also sells racket like; li ning, Yonex and Wilson but I can't see if it's genuine. Not enough pictures.

    He says that it's genuine but I don't know. What to think?

    i can bet all my properties they are not genuine!

    they may look like as 50 but they are not as 50

    you should ask them to contact yonex, japan for orders!

    Don't buy it, not that i am racist or anything you cannot trust Chinese people when you are trying to make business with them unless you trust them and they are a close friend. I know that because one of the host i play with bought 50 dozen but the sample were perfectly fine.

    Because if you did the logic thinking 1 sample may cost you lots the 50 dozen of shuttle the profit they gain is probably more than 20% if they replace with fake ones

    thanks for spotting it out pBmMalaysia normally if you were to purchase any equipment or anything from the internet you should get it from a trusted site with good ratings and positive comments. Great work spotting it out with just merely photos.

    just say i have a long history of retailing and wholesaling popular badminton brands and stringing experiences and i don't like these fake product supplier.

    even trusted site may give you problem so if prices are not much different try support local dealers, just my advise.

    Thanks pBmMalaysia for your explaination

    But honestly when you have an online price of $10 for AS-50 and at your local (trusted) retailer, you can understand that I go for the cheapest one.
    Now if the $10 one is counterfeit I cannot only blame myself. Ok I would always go for my local retailer but they are very expensive.

    I looked on http://www.yonex.com/badminton/count...cts/index.html for how to spot fake rackets so I can see which are genuine and which not. For shuttlecocks there's is nothing yet.

    I'll looked for other good shuttlecocks then instead of the $26 Yonex AS-50. Am looking for something around $10-$12

    ..they are not genuine Yonex AS shuttles...but as long as one doesn't pay reg. genuine Yonex AS shuttles prices for them, i guess that's fine with me..just consider them a different brand or lower quality shuttlecocks..

    not paying the original price for fake yonex shuttlecock is fine with you?

    sometimes its more economical to use shuttles say medium grade. you can change more!

    but not yonex medium grade like as20 or as30, they are still too expensive and do not last!

    choose the commonly used brand in your area - just see the used shuttle lying on the court can tell you roughly the popular brands.

    Hi,
    Please do not put word in other member's mouth. Interpretation of meaning is fine. Accusing and personal attack is a little over the top. I respect you have retail experience on major brand badminton equipment. But calling other using substandard shuttles is OK while the other is not, that is a little step out of line. We respect other opinion. If you have question or confusion, ask nicely and you should have a nice answer. I hope I am not offending you in anyway, I would like to see more civilized posts. Also picture in your post is some help.

    FYI, Yonex did not bother to post how to spot fake shuttles because for the experienced user, they are very easy to spot. Also, it is not economical for YY to track them down because after the first tube, the player will use better quality shuttles from other brand.

    Sorry. I did start a thread on fake YY shuttles. I think that is a better place to discuss the fake shuttles issue while this is for meaning of @$$ model number.

    Normally no one play's with Yonex AS shuttlecocks becoz of its price, for general like training or anything. But in competition they would use depending on what the comp is and who is the host. Because the host (usually a club) can get shuttlecocks from the distributor instead of retailer.

    You didn't really specify anyone so i don't see how its offensive in anyway just could be irritating to the person but not me personally.
